Depends on which one's you are getting. If you need jaws like for turning something, I would only stick with Visegrip. If you are just need the C type clamps, then I have used the Harbor Freight ones with no problems. If you are just using them to clamp something and not expecting to torque anything with them, they should be just fine.
