These days, I don't believe there are any terrible brands on the market,
such as Frank Adams, Zinsco, or Federal Pacific. Probably the general
consensus is that Square D model "QO" is the best, but Murray, Cutler
Hammer, Homeline, Westinghouse, GE, and all the other universals, are fine
I'd recommend picking a panel that has listed GFCI and AFCI breakers
available, should you ever decide to bring your house completely up to
current code. I've seen Siemens (ITE), GE, Square D at least at the big
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
Easier installation, neater organization due to the lack of neutral
pigtails on the breakers. Normal breakers don't need a neutral
connection, so the typical GFCI or AFCI breaker has a neutral pigtail.
Seems like a nice idea.
