Looks to be a much higher quality bearing than the amazon cheapies. The mention of nylon in the cage material makes me question it, but its probably no biggie anyways.
The FAG 7200B-TVP is also sold on Amazon btw but is a much better bearing. Twice the price of the cheap Chinese 2 packs.

Several bearing manufacturers have been purchased by companies owned by Soros. Like many of the previous companies he has purchased, most of these companies end up producing crap under the namesake of a reputable brand.

a lot will be said by country of manufacturer. i avoid China, Taiwan, Brazil, Mexico for bearings,
Germany, Switzerland, Japan and USA. i will use.. I have sent back several bearings to my parts houses because of country of manufacturer.. there are many bearing manufacturers out there. someone is still making the good ones.

He said no way, I'll get back with you. When he called back you could tell he was "perplexed". The units he checked in there stock were the same, grit in the bearing! He had called Timken and they said this was such a special application bearing to manufacture that Timken outsourced it to Asia.
One would think that if it were that special there would be some special QC. But I guess not. So bottom line is what you think you are getting and what you really are may not be the same thing. And in bearings, you get what you pay for - usually.
Yeah, I've had brand new stuff from the parts store be junk right out of the box.

If I ever deal with this bearing again, and I'm sure I will at some point, I'm going to get that high quality 7200B bearing

Kind of makes me think of Craftsman.... Used to be decent middle of the road tools, made in America and warrantied.... I have jumped ship to Horrid Fright tools... They are actually pretty decent, I love the composite ratchets, which is funny because a few years ago I never would have owned them because they're chinese and plastic. But I love them now, got 4 of each size 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2

Cheap 7200B bearing! Yes!

https://www.ebay.com/itm/7200-B-C3-N...oAAOSw44BYEB1p

Been using one of those for quite a while now. I can't say I've used a lot of them, but I've yet to have an issue with a Japan made Nachi.

This is what happens to those cheap 7200B bearings. Get a good one.
