Question ebay Coil over plug units

I've seen a few recommendations for the ebay ignition coils for around $85 for 8 coils. Are these as good as Original Equipment. I want to replace mine (time for tune up 145,000 miles). I'd like to save money but I only want to do it once & I was thinking about spending the extra $100 or so & getting a brand like Accel super coils.
Anyone try the China replacements?
Thanks guys.

Accel coils are the worst. Now you know. So scratch them off the list.

The units sold on Ebay by Global Automotive and Uneek Supply are OEM quality. If you want a little extra security buy the V-10 set, so you will have 2 spares. DG508 is the part number.
