They are cheap, but it seems with a good reason. Two of them had to be cut down quite a lot to fit properly and all of them are far softer than the OEM hoses once they are hot, for what that is worth. The top hose lacks the reinforced centre section of the OEM hoses too. I haven't bothered fitting the bottom ones as I'm not convinced enough of the quality to go through the effort - I'll buy genuine Mazda hoses. I can't imagine these lasting the 17 years that the original fit items have managed, I think I'll stick with genuine parts from now on.
