The $5.00 one I linked earlier is a different device that came out recently. Initially I thought it was the same device I have used, with a new lower price, but it is not. The cheaper newer one actually has better specs than the old one including higher current rating.
So while I can not speak from experience about the new device I can tell you the old $10.00 ones have been in continuous service in several of my personal clocks for >=5 years with no problems. Also, when I first tried one I looked at its output on a scope under no-load and moderate-load conditions. It looked looked clean and fine.
