Sunrace cassettes?

Has anyone here used them? How's the shifting performance?

I recently purchased a Sunrace CS-MX8 11-42 cassette for the gravel bike. I was previously using a Deore XT 11-40 cassette, and the shifting is just as good with the Sunrace - the rear derailleur is a SRAM X9 and the shifters are SRAM Force hydraulic. The large cog on the cassette is aluminium (as was the case with the Shimano cassette), and the six biggest cogs are mounted on aluminium spiders. The quality of manufacture seems just as good as the Shimano cassette it replaced. So far, it hasn't creaked at all in use.

I haven't had it on the bike for long enough to comment on its durability.

I've used many Sunrace freewheels over the years, and while the ratchet and bearings often showed signs of cost-cutting, the cogs and shifting performance were always top-notch.
Their newest product is a 12-speed, 11-50t cassette for use on Shimano hubs.
And their 7s, 13-25t and 13-28t freewheels offer useful ratios in a very good-looking piece of kit imo.

Thanks guys!

I'd seen reports that they shift well, but wanted to get some confirmation from trusted sources.
