Anyone know anything about this blue concertina?

So I'm looking to get an Anglo concertina. I had a $70 one I got off Ebay, but the bellows really creaked and made playing difficult. I sold it and I'd like to get a better one, but under $250 if possible. I know Rochelle is supposed to be a good beginner brand, and I also saw this cool looking blue one:

Does anyone have any experience with this model?

 

thanks

Well, the bellows will act effortless (as action/buttons won't presumably), but the sound will be rather squeaky.

I would suggest staying off it...

 

(I haven't come across this model by now, just recalling the nevertheless poor wooden Italian one I own)

I think you would be much better off getting a Rochelle than one of these other CSOs (concertina shaped objects)! Any extra expense will pay dividends in playability and reliability.
