Which is the best home pregnancy test to use?

Are there any that are more sensitive in detecting the hcG hormone than others?

    Which brand of home pregnancy test is the best?
    In 2003, Consumer Reports ranked home pregnancy tests based on their efficacy, ease of use and ease of result readings. First Response Early Result Pregnancy Test came out on top as the most reliable and sensitive test, earning an "Excellent" rating overall. If you'd like to use a different brand and are unsure of which to choose, ask a doctor or pharmacist.

    And this site shows you how sensitive each test claims to be:

  • It doesnt matter. I asked a pharmacist this once and he said to just get the off brand because the name and off brand were made by the same company anyway! I just go to dollar general and get the $1 tests. Then its not so expensive when I want to take 5 tests to be sure!
    I think there is a website that compares the tests, but its not enough to worry about IMO.
