Default What relays are you using?

Hello everyone,
I am in the market for a pair of 40 amp relays with heat sinks. I know the one's are aubirns are popular around here but does anyone using another brand? I see a lot of these on E-bay for about $20 (w/ heat sink) but I question their quality.

I opted for a lot of 5 crydom 50A SSR's off ebay. I am just going to mount them on a common heat sink plate.

It was a toss up for me between used american or new chinese units with a three week lead time. I went with the ones in the states

I have a 40 amp one from ebay, I put my own heat sink on it and it has worked well for me (powering one 5500 watt element)
