I think that any filter companies mid to upper line are all good to great.

A better question is what not to buy.

Personally on my Honda’s I like Purolator or Bosch filters. I’ve been running them for years now and have experienced zero problems with them. But honestly, Honda’s are hard on oil or filters so you can pretty much run whatever meets spec.

The best are Fram Ultra and Wix XP/Napa Platinum (Napa puts it on sale a few times a year at a great price)

There is certainly nothing wrong with Baldwin/Hastings you've been using, though smile

According to most UOAs here at Bob's from Dyson, Butler, CAT, or Blackstone labs, Honda engines show to be quite easy on their oils over a variety of oil change intervals(time & distance). IDK of any test that shows the specific results of filters over an OCI other than someone that posts pictures of their own filter that has been cut open & dissected.

Judging by the fact that they said, you can run pretty much anything that meets spec, I assume they meant "aren't."

Of the ones you have posted, I would just stay away from the Bosch (Purolator made). Past and current issues with Purolator made filters just turned me off of them.

Nothing wrong with purolator/bosch its old old news. 1000's are used everyday. I havent even seen a new one cut open on here.

Mann are purolators as well, where are all the european issues?

Haven't most euro cars went to cartridge filters, biggest issue with Mann-Hummel/Purolator filters lately have been the tapping plates on spin-ons not being deburred and cutting the adbv.

Never heard of it and i have worked as a mechanic and used all the filters. Do you have inside information or something, never read or heard about it even with all the reviews out there. All the filters are decent these days except for the cheapies.
