Best of the worst hot water heater brands?

Guys, looking at adding another 50 Gal hot water heater to an existing 1996 50 gal Ruud Pacemaker as im looking to put a 96 gal bathtub upstairs. My father really likes the AO Smith brand so I started researching those, in particular the ProMax series. My research all went downhill after that. When googling for ratings I found a ton of angry customers all with the same complaints about pilot lights cutting out constantly and what seems to be from faulty tanks dripping water on the pilot. I then started searching other brands and at you can't find a single unit with better than 2of5 stars overall rating and lots of angry reviews. What gives? The Ruud I have was put in by the previous owner in '96 and I have had no problems with it at all (knock wood). Are they still a solid choice? I can't find much feedback on Ruud or Rheem on the web which may be a good or bad thing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
