Does anyone know if "FULL", "NPN", or "Denso" brand oil filters are any good?

Would you say "FULL" or "NPN" are just as good or better than the Subaru brand filters? I'm asking because I order my parts for my VW and BMW at this site ( http://sd.autohausaz.com/autohausaz/...6@Oil%20Filter ). They seem to have great prices on the "FULL" and "NPN" oil filters. I tried searching but couldn't find any info. The site notes "FULL" being OEM. Does "FULL" make the oil filters for Subaru?

The main thing to look for (aside from filtering properties and burst resistant structure) is a no drain back valve. This prevents dry starts.

I use NAPA Gold filters usually, although I have snuck a FRAM in there once in a while (not a good filter BTW).
