ScopeTronix Mirrors: Any Good?

Has anyone had any experience with the parabolic mirrors sold by ScopeTronix? (www.scopetronix.com)

I'd like to build a scope but just dont have the time, space, or nerves to grind my own mirror. I have seen some pretty high prices on mirrors - up to $1000 for a 10" - around the net, so I wonder if the $329 10" f/5 that ScopeTronix is advertising on their site could possibly be any good. Anyone used one of these mirrors, or have any opinion of the company in general?

Thanks in advance

SC
