This panel is on sale for $50 with a few breakers. Was thinking about buying it to swap for my existing which has rust, and only 16 slots. I'm assuming this is cheap for a reason. What are the biggest down sides of a cheapo panel like this?

That's not extraordinarily cheap for a 100A panel. As long as breakers (Cutler-Hammer?) are readily available in your area, I wouldn't worry about using it.

I was looking at some prices and you're right. Same size panel in GE advertising a copper bus is $68 regular price. I looked at that panel and the bus didn't look copper at all. Would it be aluminum coated copper for some reason?
