I was looking for a battery grip for my XSI and found one on sale by Flashpoint. Is this a well made grip?

I use the off brand grip off of amazon for $20, it has worked fine for the past 6 months.

I have a phottix grip for my XSi, been fine for a few years of constant use and sits in my bag now except for a few weeks while on trips.

I have heard only good things about Phottix but for the XSI the cheepest I found it was for $75. I found the Flashpoint on sale $35. They have 2 owner reviews but they sounded staged. The link above for the $20 grip pointed me to a brand called Newer and I have heard bad things about them. I really dont want to spend more than $50 so if anyone can direct that would be great.

The link above is the one I bought. For the price it can't be beat and look at the reviews.

I've got a Canon grip on my XSi. Good quality, and Canon can't blame a 3rd party (and vice versa) if something does go wrong.

I'm sure majority of the 3rd party battery grip works fine especially if there are reviews on it on amazon. I have a third party battery grip for almost a year and a half, which does the job.

I have a third party grip on my T2i that I bought off eBay and it's been pretty solid. I had a Canon grip on my old XSi that was great as well, but for the money, I'll go third party all the way. Pick up a ~$10 battery on Amazon as well. No need to spend the money on a Canon labeled battery.
