They work very well.
I have built several, my own dimension calculations, but you have to be able to work to very precise measurements.
You can't just add or subtract elements, everything changes when you do.
If the SWR is way out, you can't just adjust one element to bring it down (it will bring it down, but gain, FB and pattern goes to pot)

I have no idea of the quality of the ones on ebay.

They work well, but you have to use the exact size aluminium to get full stated performance, and exact measurements to within 1/2 mm.

Have a look at these ...very well made....I've got Goran beams for 23cms and 4m

It is about a 3 week wait from ordering as he builds most antennas to order
