Carbest Flexible Solar Panels

Has anyone used these on a boat?

There seems to be very large variations (like a factor of 3) in the price asked for solar panels. These ones in this link are a lot cheaper than the more expensive ones. I am not looking for the absolute cheapest but, on the other hand, it is hard to justify paying for the most expensive ones. What are the downsides? Your thoughts?

Re: Carbest Flexible Solar Panels

Cheap ones might be PET covered instead of teflon/ETFE and their lifespan may be shorter. However, I doubt that a price factor of 3 is justified, imagine how much would a today "expensive" panel worth in 5 years...
Useful as a fireproof bottom paint...
