Which one wins? I'm looking at small sealed bearings like alternator bearings.

If there is another brand you find superior, vote "other" and post up info.

I'm gonna say I've had great luck Timken bearings. Only issue I'm having right now with anything Timken is my driveshaft carrier bearing but I beleive it is because of the shop that did it pressed it on wrong.

I bought timkins. Both brands have the same part number on this particular bearing size, so i'm sure they're made by some one else and sold by both companies.

I look at where they are made. USA are usually the best quality, then Japanese.
China made bearings are a crap shoot.
