Is there a difference in O2 sensors to justify a price difference.

'99 Disco II. Replaced all four lambda sensors a year ago but got a code 1173. Looks like I need another front right sensor. I checked the vendors and can pay $55 (Bosch), $77(Rover), or $96 (NTK) for the correct sensor. So why should I shell out $77 for a Bosch when I can get a Rover sensor for $55? Is there a difference in quality if it is designed for my specific vehicle. Ad below:

Just different pricing structures set by the manufactures
Atlantic British has them on sale also.

I just purchased 2 NGK sensors both pre-cat at Advance for $75 ea and they come with a limited lifetime warranty! They were the same price as the Bosch, but the Bosch only came with 1 year of warranty. I'd check on the warranty on all of these, if they are the same go for the cheapest...

Bosch supplies O2 sensors for Land Rover Discovery II.
We can recommend Bosch over aftermarket sensors.
