I've bought other cable releases from elsewhere - one in particular locked up the shutter after realease. To keep using the camera, the battery had to be taken out and reinserted. Hardly ideal on the job. This one works well so far... no lock-ups. If anything changes I'll edit this review.
Edit: I've been using this for a couple of weeks (Canon 5D MKII) now without incident.

Purchased this cable release on a whim at the same time I bought my new Canon 7D. I'd been meaning to pick up a release for a while, but had been choking on the price tag for a Canon-branded one. Figured this couldn't be too bad for the price, so I tossed it onto an existing order and hoped for the best.

Overall, the construction feels a little "cheap", in that the button is rather squishy and the slide-to-lock binds a little bit on mine (I would call the feel "inexpensive imported plastic" overall), but functionality is 100% perfect. I have shot approximately 900 frames with the release now, predominantly using it to ontrol my 7D in bulb mode for fireworks and lightning shots, with a smattering of portrait and low-light macro shooting in the mix. I am quite pleased with it, and for the price I paid I am quite satisfied. If it were to fail on me at some point now, I would most likely purchase another.

Is it as finely built as the OEM product? Not even close.
Does it work? Flawlessly.

UPDATE - 11/13/14: I now have some thousands of shots taken with this, and it is still working well. The binding in the slide-to-lock appears to have gone away with time and use, it's decently smooth now. Two years and a bit in, still going strong!

This thing does what it is supposed to do: pressing the button is like pressing the shutter on the camera.
The wire is not very long, maybe three feet, but this is more than enough for applications where what you want is avoiding camera shake.
The button locks down so that you don't have to keep your finger on it when shooting in bulb mode. I sometimes shot a burst of pictures when I wanted just one because the buttons gets locked down, but once used to it there is no problem.
The only other problem I ever had was the plug falling from the camera without real reason beyond gravity. Not a big deal.

[Edit after another two weeks practicing a lot very low light imaging in bulb mode]
I can now say that the locking mechanism tends to not work as well as I wish it would: a number of time I pressed, slid and removed my thumb just to hear the camera stopping exposition.
So now when exposing for less than 30s I either use manual mode or I just hold the button; and when exposing for longer than that (the max on my camera except in bulb mode) I pay attention to sliding the mechanism firmly, removing my thumb gently and not bumping the remote when I let it hang down.
Somewhat a pain but not a deal breaker.

It works fine, but doesn't "click" into place in the camera, like the Canon remote cable release does.
It could come out by mistake, if you're not careful.

Bought this remote for my 20D. I have had no problems with it. The remote and plug seem to be well built. For the money, this remote can't be beat.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By dakota winds on July 10, 2012
I am not very happy with this product. Performance is inconsistent. I recently used it for 4th of July fireworks. I was shooting in bulb mode so I needed the shutter release to stay open until I manually closed it. It wouldn't always open the shutter when I wanted it to or hold it open like it should. It didn't always fail, but it was enough to make it nearly impossible to use with fireworks. I don't recommend this product.
UPDATE: The shutter release no longer works at all. I had the cable for 2 months and used it less than 6 occasions. The return period has lapsed so I can't send it in for a return and the postage wouldn't be worth it anyway.
