I don't think I would say Extremely unlikely. So in other words you are calling matt@eastwood a liar then?
I don't think it is a carbon copy of the other units inside. Is it possible, yes, but no one on here knows this for a fact and I don't like seeing companies get bashed when people don't know for a fact. It is just an assumption, nothing else.
But I think it is clear that if you want that welder, eastwood would be the best deal, longer warranty and if they are correct a better welder than the others like it. If they are not correct you still get a better warranty.
