Tha product arrived almost before I have entered my card number and purchased the item. I was also pleased to note that there were two belts in the pack and not as advertised only one. Whether that was a mistake or not I don't know (hush!) However, when I completely opened the pack I compared it to the original belt: different thickness (slightly wider), slightly thicker and more worrying slightly shorter. I had had previous belts via Argos which were the original VAX belts and they didn't last 5 minutes. These weren't from VAX and had a different code numbers. I was abouot to send them back but thought I would try them. Well they worked, they are stronget and they work better than teh VAX ones. Touoch wood: they are also lasting a lot longer and they are cheaper. I guess an all round win for me. Thanks Amazon and Partner, no complaints here.
