The $3 (shipped) ebay diffuser I got for my SB-800 clicked in place and registered with the flash just like the original. The overall appearance and quality also looked about the same. I frankly think $3 is high for a small piece of average quality plastic. The one you get from Nikon comes from the same big red slave factory in the east as the ebay one and is worth about the same.
There's no reason for us to support a 1,000% markup by Nikon just because they think they have a captive customer base for their accessories. They could have made a hefty profit at $7-8 and you would not have thought twice about buying one. But they decided to go for broke on accessories, so that gives you a chance to teach them a lesson in free market economics.
Blah, blah, blah...If you can swing $500 for the flash, pay the $20 and get the Nikon part.
