I have been using one for about a year now and I have never greased it since I installed it and it still rolls like new.

I have also used them and they are a really nice part and is totally worth buying it and not smashing in the bearings.

if you have the tools to replace the bearings its better. but i have extensively used the cheapo aftermarket ones over the years and never had much of an issue. the one time i decided to spend the coin on tusk from rocky mountain it was identical to the $50 dollar ebay one. I usually toss them after a year or two since they are cheap and easy to replace.

I suggest doing both.
I ordered a rebuild kit for the carrier I already had, and a new mid grade complete assembly. That way I'll have a extra one all greased up for a quick field repair if needed. I used my computers magnifier to zoom in on the bearings stamps on the mid grade assembly ad's on eBay and amazon.
If you look close you can find twin row Billet carriers with precision German bearings installed for less than $50.
I used an OEM rebuild kit in the OEM carrier, packed it with grease, and wrapped it in plastic till needed.
The mid grade carrier I purchased has been on for 20 or so hours with out any problems.
