Electric Curtain Rails...recommendations?

Anyone any recommendations for electric curtain rails? I found an old post on here from a few years back where an eBay purchase for £100 seemed to work out fine versus some options 2-3 times the price.

Just wondering what people have/are using.

I used silent gliss last time for the lounge with lightwaverf and have been very happy with the result but I may look to try these out at a third of the price.

The eBay seller has a website which appears to include assembly and installation instructions. Wondering how does it seem to compare to Silent Gliss in terms of design/quality from what can be seen?

Assemble Electric Curtain Tracks (HT100)

It looks along the same lines in terms of design if not a little rough around the edges. Those bits you won't see. Larger motor etc. the wall bracket doesn't look quite as neat but again I think this won't notice. Nice thing about silent gliss is comes assembled to the correct length. All you do is plug it into the mains and screw to the wall. This one is more involved for sure but not a mass amount of work needed.

Anyone got one yet. I'm still a few weeks off ordering one.
I've taken the gamble and ordered one tonight. 3M, £145 delivered although will see if I get stung for VAT, and other customs charges but at a third of the prices I am being quoted said I would give it a shot.

Living room will be getting a makeover in the next few weeks so will see if the right choice or not...

Delivered today via UPS, no complaints about that. Will be a couple of weeks before installed.

Nearly looked at curtains today myself but still a while away, so ended up buying a new kitchen table and chairs. [emoji12]

I was gonna initially use a fibaro blind controller but now am gonna start simple and use the IR on the curtain probably via iTach Flex controlled via fibaro, and see how that goes...
