How reliable is the Express ELISA test?

I was wondering about reliability of express ELISA blood test. The results are given in 15-20 minutes after the blood taken. It sounds like way too quick for such a serious test.
Please give me your opinions. I would appreciate if anyone who is specialized on this area answered my question.
Sorry for my English, I'm not a native speaker.

Any test taken outside the window period is as reliable as it can be.

No, not all tests are reliable at 3 months. ONLY APPROVED HIV TESTS ARE.

Thanks for the answer. Now I want to ask another thing on this matter: can a person transmit HIV during his window period?
