Welcome to the real world!
Again, Changling, be a good fellow and please read my statement fully. Stop skimming over the salient parts and just picking up on what's left. I stated "that I don't get a colour cast from my Lee Filters." However, I do from one of my filters that happens to be made in China (what isn't these days) and it happens to be a variable ND. Yes that's a completely different type of filter, but the point I was making was that it has a colour cast.
Like Chris, I think you've been incredibly lucky that the cheap and cheerful ND filters you've purchased work well and do what you want them to, but as a general rule, you get what you pay for. I myself would always advise buying the best you can afford, whether it be the camera, lenses, filters or any other accessory to go with your camera and on that I hope we can all agree.
