Evergreen Panels

Does anyone have any experience with Evergreen Panels? First I was looking at thin film but a friend told me to stay away and that evergreen are some of the best panels you can buy. Is this true? Are they worth the extra money. I am of course referring to just evergreen brand, as I have already posted and learned the difference between thin film and mono/poly Si. I found them at Sun Electronics (sunelec.com) for 2.68/watt and haven't found them cheaper anywhere else. For that price I am fine with getting a few, but money is hard to come by so please if anyone has evergreens i would love to hear from you. We are talking over 2,000 for 4 panels, so would really like to know what im getting. Also if anyone has dealt with this company I would appreciate the input.
Thanks,
Adam

    Here are few pics of mine. Love them. One of them is B grade, but outputs more power than A grage ones! You can get them now for little as $1.74/W. I paid $3.68/W and $2.68/W for mine last year.

    Based on recommendations from here, I've got 20 of them stacked up, waiting for install later this month. I hope I was steered right, and I think that's the case.

    I have 8 older Evergreen, Cedar line, 115 watt 'B' Blemished panels, Up and running for 4 years now. I even purchased them from sunelec. Last year when prices were/are low and I was flush, I decided to go ahead and replace my older panels (from original system I had added the Evergreen to). I had a hard time contacting anyone at sunelec and purchased UL listed NingBo panels off of ebay instead.
    Home system 4000 watt (Evergreen) array standing, with 2 Midnite Classic Lites,  Midnite E-panel, Prosine 1800 and Exeltech 1100, 660 ah 24v ForkLift battery. Off grid for @16 of last 17 years. Assorted other systems, and to many panels in the closet to not do more...lol

    As a matter of fact I just purchased two Evergreen 210 watt from sunelec today. I did some research and heard good things. It did take a few days to get my order placed, due to their system not working. I ended up having to place order over the phone, since my online order would not go through. Julienne in Miami was helpful.
