Default Dexter axles vs. off brand

Need two new 3500lb axle for my trailer. My two choices are:

1) Off brand: $220 per
3500 lb axle, ezlube spindles, 10x3 electric brakes, springs included

2) Dexter: $240 per
3500 lb Axle only with brakes
+ additional $30-$40 per spring so around $320 for comparable setup


Is Dexter worth the extra money?

I've always ran Dexter axles and never had any problems. Don't know if they are worth the extra or not.
