Now there are other making very good electrolyts.

May I suggest a visit to RIFA website. Evox RIFA capacitors.
They have very high class big capacitors.
They are often WHITE.
Here is their

Evox-Rifa used to be the best 10+ years ago. If the designs are still similar, they would be my first choice. The build quality, tolerances and even MTBF exceeded all other designs regardless of brand name. I think I read somewhere recently they were bought by a huge conglomerate(?). I admit; I didn't do any further research on this buy-out as to design change, etc.

These look like the Evox-Rifa replacements by Kemet. The PEH169 series seems to be "equivalent" to the original Evox. I used originals about 10 years ago; they had the best specs. then and had a MTBF of 20 years!

The three in your second list beginning with 'Sam' are Korean rather than Taiwanese. I'd rate Samyoung the best of the Koreans based on specs, no idea about reliability in practice.

>>OM abraxalito

You are correct
Samyoung is a joint venture of Nippon Chemicon located in S Korea.... Taicon has tie up with Nichicon. Teapo acquired G Luxon and now both are same. Panasonic have acquired Sanyo capacitor division (Semiconductor by ON, formerly Motorola)

>>OM Eldam
European brands are:

Epcos
Frolyt
Rodenstein
Vishay
