Most recent replacement was with a Rheem. They wanted a 60 gallon version for the large family in their summer house. It has a "vacation" setting, so its energy use in minimized while they are gone. I receooended turning it off ... but they were fearful about re-lighting every trip.
You also have to know that tank manufacturers have their metallurgy down to a real science. For a 5-Year tank under normal usage it will die in 5 years +/- one month. Not kidding. I got home after replacing a 5-Year tank one day and my neighbor was hauling a new tank out of his truck. "Yeah, mine died within two months of the five year warranty." he said.
