24 days later and the pump finally showed up from Hong Kong. It should normally take about 10 days, but the Christmas season added 1 to 2 weeks delay on the transit time (this was expected as it was mentioned in the ebay listing).

My first impressions are that it is more compact than I imagined, a bit heavier than expected, and the materials feel sturdy and of decent quality. I hooked up a 12 volt SLA battery I had from an old UPS and pumped some water through it. It was pretty quiet and moved quite a bit of water.

Hopefully this weekend I'll get a brew day in with it and see if it moves an adequate amount of wort.

Here's some pics for now:

I finally had a chance to use this little pump for a brewing session and I couldn't be more pleased.

I've posted some pictures below with my 1/2" camlocks installed and a short video clip of this pump recirculating wort.

Thanks to Newbeerguy for the Eliot Ness clone recipe.

Here are some close-ups of the pump with my 1/2" camlocks from Bargain Fittings. Cleanup is really easy because I just flush it with hot tap water through both ends.
