There are many plates out there. Some better, some not so. I've read about a SW Motech plate breaking behind the mounts:

And I've seen this:

Also not a really good design. Personally I have the AltRider rear rack which I use with a Givi Mounting Kit for my Givi V46 and it works fine. I avoid heavy stuff in there and for touring I prefer side cases plus a waterproof Ortlieb duffle, but day to day the Givi/AltRider combination works great for me.
