I have no issues with Bando either (had a set that lasted 5-6 years iirc),
most brand AC and Power steering belts are about 20 bucks anywhere. Having either snap, either gets you hot in the summer months or makes it a pain in the ass to steer in parking lots,.. inconvenience but no big deal.
If they last 5 years, thats great, its a disposible wear and tear item thats easy enough to swap out.
The GMB parts that i have used (few idler pulleys) have been good, however..
OEM subaru water pump all day long on my 207 for my piece of mind.
