Is there a decent third party offering out there as OEM are pretty expensive?

Forum sponsor CORGIDirect sells replacements for about a tenner a piece. I don't know how their quality compares with the OEM ones but they've been selling them for several years (perhaps longer?) so I'd expect them to be satisfactory.

Iirc, someone said they weren’t that good.

Sorry to change the subject slightly, but still kind of on point. Which motorised valves are people using at the minute. We always used Honeywell but have had to replace a number recently that have stuck open or worn out the gears(2 to 3 years old).Started using ESI ones but not for long enough to know quality of them. Any other suggestions?

Still use Honeywell. Never had any issues with them but I do hear people saying the same as you.

The topic of 'geniune' motor vs 'copy' has appeared on this forum several times in the past.
It used to be the case that the Honeywell part had blue wires, and copies usually orange or red.
There are lots of cheap one's about, but no genuine Honeywell I can see at anywhere near the same price. It is claimed they are different specifications, but who knows?

They still sell the 721s so quick swap or you can upgrade to as you say t3 but you will need to swap the receiver and wiring etc
