Prusa PEI textured bed surface weak compared to 3rd party

In my experience, the bed surface from aliexpress.com are better than the Prusa PEI textured bed surface.

The texture is deeper so the prints stick better and you can print parts with a smaller base.

I bought mine from this seller: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3256805385886261.html

Seems like the other sellers on aliexpress sell the same thing.  The specialty texture options are nice, but not really as practical as textured PEI.

I have purchased some off brand ones and have had issues with the finish coming off...How long have you been using this? Has it held up pretty well?

For the past 3 days I've been printing Printed Solid Jessie Black PLA on the textured side of FYSETC Prusa Build Plate MK52 MK3S+ MK4 Spring Steel Surface: Textured PEI+ PET-CF Double-Sided Flexible PEI Sheet - big parts and tiny 1/4"x1/4" 3 layer high parts... they've all stuck well and pop off pretty easily and the textured finish looks very nice.  I think I only wiped it with IPA once.
