Anybody ever used a "Universal Air" aftermarket AC compressor

I have a leak in my AC compressor. Replacement means I have several choices in descending order of cost they are; OEM MB new, OEM rebuilt OEM Aftermarket new (Nipponsendo) and after-aftermarket (Universal Air is maker). I am wondering if anyone has ever heard of Universal Air and if so are their compressors any good?

I am leaning toward the Nipponsendo unit new for about $500 as a good balance of price/quality but the Universal Air unit is only $350 new...

Of course that will be a "rebuilt" aftermarket Nippondenso unit!

Stick with either NEW OR REMAN Nippondenso unit from ND not aftermarket!
