At the time of writing this review, no assurance of quality or satisfaction was provided by the manufacturer. This is unfortunate and disappointing, since many similar products carry such guarantees in an effort to provide consumers confidence when trying an unfamiliar product.
It is a plus that the product is fairly priced, but then again low price is not always a good quality to have. You have to make judgments based on your own findings however, and see what is best for you. It also does not come with a guarantee.
