The orange can Frams "Extra Guard" are the ones that have the bad rep. I've actually had one fail on me. I was changing the oil on the Bronco, put on a new Fram orange can of death, put in six quarts of oil. started it up, and was backing vehicle up, putting the back under the carport, and noticed steady stream oil the ground as I was reversing, I cut the engine off immediately (the whole episode took about 7 seconds, got back out and saw that I had lost a noticeable amount of oil (probably a quart or so) and it was coming out from the oil filter. I took the oil filter off and noticed that the rubber gasket was now missing, and oil was leaving the vehicle/filter due to it's absence. It looked around on the ground and found it, it was in two pieces. I hopped in the TR6 and headed back up to the auto parts store to get a new filter. This time I went with the stock motorcraft filter which at the time made buy Purolator (IIRC it was a Premium Plus casing with Pure One filter media/internals), and I stuck with those for the duration of my ownership of the vehicle.
The Fram Ultras (their high end filter) has a good reputation, I've used it before and had no problems. Realistically any brand-name oil filter is probably going to serve you well enough. The orange frams are definitely built to a price compared to higher end filters, the $2-$3 difference is worth the piece of mind to me though.
