Hm, I know the kind of board you are refering to. They usually have a 
light green solder mask while the others do have all kinds of other 
colors. But to me this looks like only one specific maker and I only 
have one of their boards, all others in my collection are of good 
quality and, from what's printed on them, from all kinds of makers. The 
sticker on the expansion port bracket always says 'HKC' though, which I 
read as 'Hong Kong'.
