American Audio has a clone of the Technics, but I believe it's made using pot metal, not aluminum, and has nickel contacts, not gold.

So, aluminum vs. pot metal; gold vs. nickel; weight of the original Technics vs. heavier or lighter headshells.

Some have said the Stanton headshell is a good alternative.

That same ebay seller has one that looks a bit more like the Technics with gold contacts:
