I've also ordered them at Advance for around $3, but honestly cannot remember the packaging, so thanks for posting that.

Yes, there has been quite a bit of comparison done and from what I recall, there is no real or discernable difference in the two.
It still does pay to carefully check each new one over for defects before putting it in your car though. Bill Wren had an experience with one that came with a nicked o-ring in the package.
