Choosing an electric water heater brand?
Go to your local plumbing supply and get one, they should have it in stock and most offer delivery if you need it. Do not go to Home Depot, Lowes, or Sears, the reduction in quality is not worth the savings.
All the brands you listed are fine. I rarely see problems with water heaters that haven't yet reached their life expectancy (ten years). Most go well over that period. Those that I do see are typically from a box store. Brands like Kenmore and Whirlpool should be avoided. They make good washing machines but I would never install one of their water heaters.
