Cheap Aluminum Jacks

Does anybody have any experience with the cheap aluminum "racing" jacks that Harbor Freight, Northern, Jeg's, etc. are selling? I'd love to have one, but i am leery of jacks for $125 which are advertised as "similar to those used by NASCAR teams for hundreds less!" .
Normally I wouldn't worry about it, but a friend of mine has a conventional steel/cast iron 3 ton from Advance Auto and it quit working in less than a year, and that has made me a lot more skeptical of cheap jacks.
