180 3-in-1 Focusing screen

Accidentally scratched my focusing screen today so looked around the net and ran into this:
180 Degree 3-in-1 High Accuracy Foucsing Screen for Pentax K7 - Free Shipping - DealExtreme

$22 shipped so figured its worth the try, that site usually takes 1 month to get to me though so it will take me a while to find out if its good or not. So question is anyone had experience with this one in particular? I noticed on the review area that there are lots of the 45degree one but not this one. I previously had the yespainting one but found it too dark hoping maybe this one will be better (probably the same though).

But in low loght you will have an issue as the viewfinder will become very dark. I tried it and gave up. I bought from Focusing Screen and selected the K3 screen instead. Works great!!

I just recieved it at f 5.6 which is my slowest lens (tamron in sig at 300mm) its brighter than the jinfinance/yespainting screen. The box says its the Bresson brand.
