I have experienced arcing (dielectric breakdown) on one of  
these--manufacturer unknown, but assumed PRC origin. This was after 1 year  in-line. About 
500 watts at the time.
I don't know how you avoid this 'trusted source' issue. Except to be  
willing and physically possible to replace.
The situation is even worse for ferrite from PRC, among other parts.
