For example, I've been doing a lot of research lately on ball heads,
and was just about sold on the Benro ball head. There are many happy
users in these forums. It seemed too good to be true. Then I found

Wow!! That is exactly the Induro ballhead that I used to have -- and which was just plain terrible! I wish I had seen this before I bought that. Don't buy this ballhead, either as a benro or as an induro.

The Acratech GV2 ballhead that I have now is just ten times better (and its open design prevents dust collection).
