Saw this on ebay for a killer deal. Seems too good to be true. Anyone have any insight?

Looks like the same exact one from HD, but 1/2 the price (after shipping).... can anyone else verify? If it's the same I'm grabbing one too!!

The HD reviews on this panel are pretty poor. Lots of faulty breakers. Hmm. Not good.

Still need to buy my spa panel and was planning on getting the one from HD, because I thought everyone pretty much got theirs from there. If not where are people getting theirs.

I bought one from the link. We'll see how it goes. Bad reviews on HD site? 4.3/5 stars is a good review in my book.

Does the ebay one actually come with the GFCI breaker?

It appears to. There is nothing saying otherwise. I'm debating on what I want to do. It's a new build so I have plenty of room in my panel for the breaker. However that is a 100 dollar bill for the GFI panel breaker Vs. the price of this spa panel + a 30 amp non GFI breaker. The Spa panel is clearly much cheaper. Just less stream lined.

Hey CoalCracker, I am following a similar build to johndon and he used the same setup. He has pictures too showing how he has everything running.

Let me know what you do. I am going to start wiring and assembling everything the first of the new year!
