Are the other brands that are out there just as good? Are there any quality issues with the other brands?
Not in my opinion, no.

CRT's have less filter media in them, and the seams are folded, not welded. The Allen screw that holds the bypass valve together can come loose.

Ready is made the wrong length, so it crushes slightly when using the stock cover. Their cover has problems with improperly cut O-ring grooves, leaking, smaller than stock oil passages, and lacks a tab to prevent the oil filter from being installed backward.

The Scotts is still the best one you can get, and it's worth the money. IMO.

though i havent had any problems with my Ready filter and cover except i do have to be careful of O-ring now and then when installing, just thought that was part of it, after reading gray's reply i might just switch.
