I'm also using this one and it is great for that price. I can recommend it, too.

Last year I bought a second hand Manfrotto #3265 (it also says #222 on the grip, and "Made in Italy").
Mine is a bit like the 322RC2, but the camera sits on top of the grip handle (rather than on the side of it).

I got it for a great price, and I used it a bit in person before I bought it (from Gumtree, the Australia free online selling / buying community).  So I was happy with that, as it works well and the price was much less than new. It sits on my tripod which I bought about 1.5 years before.

The main reason I wanted to get a ball-head was for macros and 'the quick release possibility'. It complements my existing 3-way Manfrotto head very well.

Hope you'll get a good outcome with your decision and purchase.
