Only thing I have heard is they have poor warranty support.

I've got a Lotos plasma cutter. It works, but not the best piece of equipment. No idea about their welders.

I just returned a lotos 140 ST to Home Depot for a refund. I loved the machine while it was working but it blew a capacitor. I really wanted to fix it. But it was not meant to be. I ended up with a bunch of emails between myself and the people at lotos who took forever to answer my questions and in the end actually told me to take it back to Home Depot for a refund. The saddest part was that it was an easy fix but being a new machine I felt a little assistance in getting the parts I needed from the manufacture was not to much to ask. As I said it was a great little machine that ran like a champ and even made my welds look good right up to the point that the capacitor blew.
