Remote winch control

Anyone seen or used one of these??
It seems to cheap to be any good.
I know your not supposed to put ebay stuff up here but I'm not selling this just want some input as to if anyone has used one. Delete it if I'm wrong.

Cheap and good are usually not synonymous with our hobby, unless you favor the use of front lift blocks, angle iron, wood blocks, re-bar, and can weld like you were cooking Jiffy popcorn.

That's the same one that my chinese winch came with. It's worked good so far. The only complaint I have is there is a slight delay when you push or release the button.

What model winch are you planning to run it out. Seems like it would be worth the money. I might try one.

I've used the winch maybe 10 or 12 times.

The delay is about a second or less. It's not a big deal once you get used to it. The only thing is I have to be careful if someone is guiding the cable in to make sure it stops soon enough.

Saw a sign at a place that said "We have 3 kinds of service: Cheap, Fast, and Good. Pick any 2" Seems to be true with most things.

jfields78 just gettin started
So, it's basically a remote garage door opener wired to the winch. Sweet. I wonder if I can program the built-in remote on my Tahoe to activate the winch?
