why are these considered a no no?
Tinking about doing cloth this time around, but i spent a fortune on a few different expensive brands last time and they all had leakage probs, i wouldnt have minded sooo much but some cost 40 dollars and that just gave me the shiz big time.
So... Ebay cheapies? Anyone actually like them?

I have some with a microfibre insert. Unfortunately, microfibre alone just doesn't cut it with DS but the pockets themselves are great and I just use them with bamboo inserts.

I've brought some, they haven't arrived yet so I haven't played with them yet, but reviews are decent for them . I intend to buy some bamboo boosters as well. All up a stash of 30 (with 20 boosters) will cost me around $170 total. If I don't find them very good I can still use them as covers and just stick prefolds in them
There are some good videos on YouTube as well for the osfm cloth cheapies and they give a good idea of what they will be like

I've got some and love them too. I think mine are babyland. I have to change them every 3-4 hours.
I also use bamboo prefolds with some second hand baby beehind covers....so my whole stash is pretty cheap.
I have tried a few other mcns but prefer my eBay cheapies and prefolds as I can always get a decent fit.

What are some of the better eBay brands to try?

Just be wary of the fabrics. If they are good quality fabrics, then maybe they might be ok.
If something's advertised as "waterproof fabric with absorbant filling" or something vague like that, ask what exactly it's made of.
And keep in mind the price, if for eg you think oh I'll get these but I'll have to buy some xyz boosters from elsewhere, it might add up to be just as expensive as other brands.
Though speaking of which, for extra boosters I would just buy a metre or 2 of fabric (bamboo) and cut it up no hemming required, don't bother paying top dollar for extra ready made boosters.
Also with microfibre it is very absorbant but doesn't hold the liquid very well and hence is prone to compression leaks, but if you team it up with something else that does hold (eg bamboo) then it can work quite well.

Yeah I'd just be cautious of the fabrics they are made of, plus microfiber is known for compression leaking and they can get detergent build up quite easily which can cause even more leaking.
On top of that, I just personally don't like the idea of paying for a poorly designed product that hasn't had proper testing. I much prefer supporting WAHM's.
