Question gates water pump

Has anyone had any experience with this brand water pump? I hear that gates makes the Subaru OEM belts, but I wondering if they also make the OEM water pump. It runs around $20-30 cheaper than the Subaru one.

I never tried a Gates water pump, but I have used many Bosch water pumps. Typically for a 2.2L NA or 2.5L NA they run ~$60.
