Default Dead Laptop Battery

It finally happened. It lasted longer than I expected but my battery is no more.

My laptop kindly informed me about this fact, and that it was out of warranty as well. Cheeky!

Checked out HP's prices but didn't like them very much. Found a couple of sites supplying third party batteries and I can get one that will give me more hours per charge for about 2/3 of what a HP branded one would cost.

I know they say it is as good as an original part and all that. But before I hit the buy now button I just wanted to ask if someone here have any experience of third party laptop batteries and if so, how good are they?
