Is a K&N CAI a decent brand?

I found a used one near me for $100. Seeing as they go for ~$400, I'm ready to jump on this, I just wondered what the general consensus was as far as quality & performance.

There is literally a ton of members running a K@N cai with zero regrets. For $100 go for it.

I got me the Typhoon one from K&N, and although I can't compare it to any others, it sounds freakin' awesome - I straight-piped my exhaust (i.e. fairly loud) and if my windows are down the intake completely drowns out the exhaust it's so loud. For $100 you should for shizzle get on that.
