Default V-band clamps info?

Regarding V-bands: Is there an application where they are NOT the best suited?
I have headers by Full Race and two friends and I have all had issues with the headers to up-pipe connection. On the FR design this is a two into two connection that uses a head gasket. Seems like the perfect place to install two v-band clamps. I've seen where they were use on V-8 headers at the collectors.

Brands: I see a wide price range for 3" clamp sets. Vibrant runs from $70>, Godspeed for $20>, OBX for $35 and $18-$40 for the CX Racing brand.
Others?

What have you used successfully and are there Chinese rip-offs out there to look out for?
