Which HPT is the best one?

What brand of HPT is the best and gives the best results? I've heard that First Response is the most accurate. Is that true?

I've also been told that the tests you get at the dollar store are just as good as the more expensive ones, but i've also been told the opposite.

I would love to know what everyone thinks.

I have had great success with clear blue, I know they say the dollar general test r the same as the dr use and if thats true they aren't as sensitive as clear blue, i took a clear blue digital with my second and it came out positive, next day went to the dr and took theirs and it was negative, the following day took another clear blue digital at home and was positive waited 2 days went back to dr, very very faint positive, i was one week late at the point of the first test so i wouldn't trust the dg ones till u were 2-3 weeks late. (i always test with first morning urine)
