Default Aishi Capacitors (same value, different height)

Hi everyone,

I'm refurbing a non-working DVR (won't power up) and starting by replacing the caps in the PSU PCB section. All caps are Aishi and some have already tested bad and will be replaced, however I have a quick question:

There's a bunch of 1000uF 16V caps, but one is taller than the others. The majority are marked CD288Z, and the taller one is CD288S. A quick Web search has not turned up any useful info, so can anyone let me know from experience whether there's any major differences between the two types that may be relevant for how I replace them. I presume it's either just production line variances or might be more important - ie: ripple or ESR??
