Default Wurth capacitors

I noticed that these have become available pretty much from everywhere.
Anyone here bought some? Any experiences? I wonder if they are rebadged?
They seem a little cheaper than Japanese caps. They have some Low ESR series as well as polymers too.

Yes, I came across them on Farnell, while trying to find something in stock for a British forum member:

Definitely re-branded. Probably a Taiwanese or Chinese brand. Wouldn't use their electrolytics.
...Their plight, in fact is even worse, they don't realize that they're cantonists, they think they're free men. What a slavery that is - to confuse slavery for light, and bitter darkness for bright light.

Their specifications look pretty good. I have used a few on some vintage amplifiers, and they seem to sound pretty good. No failures so far.

hm, maybe you can get those things from your local metal worker or so...
Maybe I go to one and ask if they can get me a couple Wet Lytics...

Wurth trying to bust into the capacitor business, they have great pricing and the film caps are good.
Wurth electrolytics are made in china and seem like a cheap build (low hrs lifetime) despite the cute red packaging. I don't bother using them.
