Default Integrity / Reliability or Knowledge of Obscure Bathroom Fixture Manufacturers

I like the look and more importantly the cost of these Rigid Risers type shower fixtures from the following companies. They must be manufactured in China or someplace where labor is cheap. I know from experience from purchasing music gear that the quality of guitars from outside the US can be awesome and cheap these days but I don't squat about bathroom these companies only the typical MFG's like Delta, Kohler or Moen. Those companies make decent valves but for double the cost of these other companies.

Anyone have any knowledge of the following MFG's

The second two links show shower valves that do not meet IPC code, as they are not pressure balanced. Not sure about the first one, didn't try to look into the specifics.

The problem you may have with those is finding repairs parts down the road.
