I thought I read on DF recently, that the Timken hub unit isn't "all that" anymore?

I've read that to zman. They sold to someone who uses a lesser quality part. They aren't what they used to be

I bought a Napa brand hub assembly a few months ago. I've only put a few hundred miles on 'em, and although it's not saying much, they're still holding up.
