Avid Bleed kit versus cheap and dodgy

Ok people,

I'm pretty sure my brakes need bleeding on my Avid Juicy 4's, as they very nearly packed up on me at the weekend.

Brake lever on full, only just stopping etc etc (bike is eight years old and never been done, oops!).

Anyhow, kits aren't that cheap for something you use once in a blue moon and I have seen some discussions on using cheaper non-avid ones.

So, has anyone used cheaper kits, and are they as good, or do I really need to pay top-dollar for a branded kit?
