Glow Shift Gauges?

What do you guys think about these. Worth it or not? Save the extra $100 for Autometer or Isspro?

I have them in my mustang they are just as accurite as my autometers were. I will say the quality compared to autometer is not there by far but they do work. I wanted to change my gauges and with the 5 that I bought If I would have bought the ones I liked from autometer it would have cost me close to $500 I bought the glow shift for $145 when I got them I almost sent them back but I decided to install them and maybe change them later but after installing them I liked them alot they are the ones that go dark when the car is off. So untill one of them quits I will use them. I have had them for 2yrs and they are still working just my 2 cents though.

Have you ever heard the saying, "you get what you pay for." Well, I believe that rule applies here.
