Default Recognizing capacitors and levels of quality?

Guys,

Can someone either post or link me to a current comprehensive *chart/list* of what color/markings distinguish the caps to their manufacturers.

It would be much appreciated as I can't find the charts that I was looking at yesterday.

Also, if you fellas could rank(give your opinions) the caps by their *quality* good/bad that would help out quite a bit.

Thanks,

Sphere

Sphere,
You will have to register to see attachments over at http://www.badcaps.net/ but it will be worth it. Give me the referral please. I am Galvanized over there.
Most of the bad and recommended caps are posted in thier forums with pics.
willawake, a Mod over at badcaps has just registered here. He is a very knowledgable tech.

FYI: Enhance built Silverstone ST75F modular PSU I have here is Teapo primary and Teapo and Su'Scon secondary.

The Su'Scon's had me fooled. They're the exact same brown color as Nippon/United Chemi-Con!

The Enhance ENS-0560G/ST60F I have is all Teapo for the larger caps, the little guys, 50V 10uF, plus some other little ones I couldn't read are Jamicon. Or so my notes say.
Jamicon are not good'ens but at least they are not stressed componets...I hope

Zippy and Seasonic use Hitachi as part of their Primary cap set. I have not seen Hitachi being used on the secondary side.

Aren't Teapo supposed to be bad capacitors ? (that says badcaps.net), and Enhance use them ?
