Product Quality

I’ve had varing results with different brands of creatine. The name brands seem to consistantly deliver, but it seems to be hit and miss with most of the other brands. I’ve tried several brands and have noticed some difference between them. Has anyone else experimented with different brands of creatine? If so, what brands have you tried and what are your thoughts for each?
I buy my creatine from “DPS” where there is probably (guess) 10 - 20 different manufactures of the stuff. As an experiment, the last batch I bought was “RTO” brand, which was the cheapest stuff “DPS” sells. Has anyone else tried the “cheapest” stuff before? “You get what you pay for” is usually true, is it here or are most brands pretty much equal?
What’s your favorite brand?
What is total garbage?
