That's not the same. Lower specs. Original is carbon drive.

Works fine for me, not sure how long it'll last but it is cheap

@jim0 until it snaps on a duel carriage way and leaves you stranded. Some things are just not worth going cheap on. Use as short term backup not a replacement.

@lhk Turns out it lasted 11 months which was about 6000 miles until it snapped so not bad for £45 and can be ordered and delivered within a week  where as the original seems to be £160 and take 2-3 months for shipping to UK and that one shredded some teeth after a lot less mileage before snapping itself, so i'd say buy this one but replace it every 6 months or 3000 miles.
