I have a cheap one off Amazon and one from GW that I purchased...some time...ago.

 

IMO, there's not much difference between the two except that the cheap one off Amazon (for about $15) has many more bits than the GW one does.  But I may not use them often enough to be able to tell the difference.

Godhand products are nice, but tbh, I think your paying for the name as there are cheaper, equivalent products that do the exact thing they do.

 

As far pin-vices, for me, the tool has to feel comfortable in my hand before I'll use it. I tend to like the ball end style or my current one is the Army Painter one. It has a comfort grip on the end + the shape fits my big hands, long fingers. I don't like the "shaft only" style of pin vices. Those make my fingers ache & cramp up.

 

Also, don't skimp on drill bits, there are places that sell cheap ones, but try & put a little bit of cash in them as they are generally made of better materials.

As long as what you get has good jaws there isn't much difference between them that isn't just personal preference. The one I have was $13 on amazon and included 18 decent quality small drill bits. Not a lot of reason to pay more than that.

 

Be careful about God Hand pricing if you get one. They sell for $25 in Japan, if you are paying more than $30 you are probably getting ripped off by the seller.

My personal favourite is my DSPIAE one, specifically the second generation with the tool-free chuck.  It's designed to use their bits, but it not only spins freely and cuts well, but it does it WITHOUT SQUEAKING.  Also, it's a lovely shade of red, and fits comfortably in my hand.
