I assume you're referring to the 'Malachite' type receivers and have the receiver by now so I would be interested to hear of your experience with it.
I considered buying a Chinese clone but read too many bad reviews of them, it seemed to be a hit or miss affair if you actually got a good one. I may still order a Russian original,

Friend of mine has the malachite - he said I'd stamp on it in 10 minutes, he's happy to accept the crippled software, dodgy performance and suspect longevity.
