Default Dumb Question

The hood lift supports on my '05 are failing (don't ask how I know). In searching for replacements I've found a variety brands ranging from about $7 ea to $20+ ea. (BOXI, Monroe, Sachs, StrongArm, Stabilus, etc.). Are there any differences between these? Does anyone have a favorite type they'd recommend? Does it matter? -- BTW, I found OEM replacements at $75 ea.

Not a dumb question, my rear hatch shocks are doing the same and I ought to look into swapping those out too.
