Water Heater Brand to buy?


I've a 16-year old Bradford White, nat gas hot water heater that I want to replace before it starts to leak.
It is a high efficiency unit (PVC exhaust, forced fan induction).
I haven't contacted a plumber as yet and wondered if anyone has suggestions as to brands to avoid? I'm assuming the stuff at big box stores are junk.
I'm thinking of another BW: M1TW50S6BFN.
TIA,
Bob

Doing a web search on water heaters will show you who makes what brands. A.O. Smith makes a few different brand units. I would stay with buying from a plumbing supply rather than a Home Center.
