Try searching as this topic has been discussed numerous times. The main difference is in the materials they are made from. A no-name SS will usually be made from aluminum and a Skunk2 is steel and has sealed bearings.

you'll notice the diff when the $50 one snaps when trying to shift. get a b&m one, good shifter and a good price.

I have been through 3 different aftermarket short shifters with the first one been the no name brand. There was no problem with it, didn't snap or anything. But the bushing wasn't as up to par as the latter two I have used.
