Default Price of Rover 75 Wheel Bearings

I'm surprised at the wide range of prices charged for front (and rear) wheel bearings which can range from £19.00 to £84.00! What do Members typically recommend as a reliable source and in which price range?

The biggest difference to me seems to be the quality of the seals, that keep in the grease and keep out (brake) dust. Cheaper ones more often have flimsy ones that easily fall off or disintegrate, wearing out the bearing faster.

I recently purchased a FAG rear bearing and it seemed to be good quality.
