I'm trying to track exactly that:
Taotronics and other Chinese LED panel reliability question
I've seen reports of dead drivers, LEDs dying, rust, and fire...
My concern with these, especially what appears to be the not-so-reliable newer ones (vs the ones that have been in service for 2-3+ years), is that over time, replacement costs (or costs of shipping to/from the manufacturer for repair) will become higher than the cost of more expensive lighting rigs. I suppose, in the end, you get what you pay for.
