There should be a "marketplace" section to discuss various experiences with sellers and their products...

An SMA attenuator is hard to mess up in that frequency range.
Bot do take note the VSWR is okay but not great.

Hi

I think that for the price, I'd want to see a little more data. Is the attenuation +/- 1 db over the range? Is the VSWR 1.2 at 6 GHz and 1.05 below 3 GHz? Lots of things you might want to know.

I doubt they are really good for 2w, they look like they are a bit smaller than minicircuits 1w attenuators. And +1 to a vswr vs freq and attenuation vs freq plot would be reassuring.   Since they make them, maybe they can provide them if you ask.

AF6LJ:
What for $9.00?
They are dirt cheap....
Would I buy them to be used as test equipment?
Nope...
For a beginner and for use in a piece of gear I was building they are fine.
