'Perlight' Solar Panels - anyone heard of 'em?

I have the opportunity to purchase two of these 40 watt panels, at a good price, but I have never heard of them before. They are made in China, but a lot of panels are these days I guess -- not much info on the net. Anyone ever used them on a boat?
Here is the spiel from the local advert:

PERLIGHT solar modules are manufactured to the highest stardard in a ISO9001 certified factory and are made with A-GRADE, HIGH EFFICIENCY Monocrystalline solar cells.

Model Number PLM-40/12
Maximum Power 40W (Pmax)
Power Tolerance 3%
Maximum Power Voltage 17.5V (Vm)
Maximum Power Current 2.28A (Im)
Open Circuit Voltage 21.9V (Voc)
Short Circuit Current 2.54A (Isc)
Maximum System Voltage 715V (VDC)

Hello,

I am familiar with Perlight. They are one of the few China factories that have all the certifications.

I have 6 of their 250w panels from 2007, and they seem to be holding up very well.

Hey whoa sh*t, someone finally replies after almost a fortnight. Glad to hear yours have been holding up well since 2007, makes me feel better that I might have lucked onto a decent chinese brand in that case.
Thanks mate
