My advice:

Test them extensively. Hook thm up with very good charged battery and RX, set you TX on servo test mode and run them at least an hour, for 15minutes at the time.

Check the case temperature at 7 min and before the 15min. They may be warm but never hot at no load. In between the cycling run them manually and put hand resistance to feel torque and smootheness.
If they go pass 45min, they may live. Electronics either die a premature death or live "forever".

The deal with cheap OR unkown servos is the unknown reliability. I have a friend who flies the Power HD servos in a 75cc Yak with good results.

On the other hand I have a set of high torque, seemingly good Turnigy servos that got hot as hell in 5 minutes just cycling with no load, and dont trust them on anything.

Bad...I tried out some power hds on a 500 build I did last year. They overheat pretty easy. On a 600 best to go with what's tried and true. I went with align ds620s and a ds650 tail

If you cant afford some nice Futabas BLS451
Look into SAVOX servos, they make all the popular align and spektrum servos but have better warranty and cheaper:

Savox SC-1258TG (DS610) cyclic
Savox SC-1290MG (DS650) tail

http://www.savoxusa.com/Savox_SC125...savsc1258tg.htm

good luck

Thanks for the link, they look pretty good for that price, and they're probably available somewhere at a discount.

Not all Spektrum servos are made by Savox.
if someone wants cheap and reliable servos go to Savox or Hyperion.

if you buy in the USA then support your LHS or online stores because the distributor always has the huge margin profit for him and used to have a bad customer support.
buy from Amain Hobbies they own Savox servos if you want them cheaper go to RC711 or eBay

Thanks Bikman for clarifying on spek made by Savox.
I was merely talking about the H6040 and H6080G, same two I referenced in Savox models.

good to know other outlets too.
Savox makes even better servos than 1285TG and 1290MG, but when the price begin nearing the Futaba's, I got with BLS252 or BLS255HV. You just can't beat those.

I know some chinese brands which are selling servos over $100..
their sales manager must be very stupid if he thinks people will buy them instead of Futaba ones for the same price.
when a servo is being sold in the chinese market only that means CRAP.
