I had a set of Staun brass auto-deflators that I loaned to a buddy a couple years ago and never got back (he PCS'd to another base). I loved them. It took me a little bit to get them set, but once I did, they worked perfectly. I paid significantly more than $19 for them, but some of that was for the name. I say read some of the seller's feedback specific to those deflators. If the feedback is decent, go for it. They're only $19, so even if they don't work, it won't break the bank.

Americans sleep safely in their beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do them harm...

Those look like the Smittybuilt clones of the Stauns.

I have never used those auto-deflators myself, but a few in my club have them. They seem to like them I guess.

For me I love my Currie EZ-deflator. Same thing as an ARB model. Very very fast. Best $30.00 I ever spent.

I have a set of them and they work. It took a while to get them all set to the same psi. I just pull the valve and air down most of the time since it is way quicker. If it is going to be a little bit before we hit the trail I will slap them on and pet them do there thing.
I'm here to participate. I didnt come all this way just to watch.
