The Hong Kong ones have a couple of issues. One is that Vertex will not honor the US warranty on them, partially or primarily I suspect because they don't carry the FCC approval. The auto repeater offset will not be correct for the USA, so you have to program all of them in, which is tedious if you have to add them by hand in the field. Plus, yeah, $50 to ship them (if they show up).
