Thumbs up Valvoline & Castrol GT LMA brake fluid

Well I purchased the Valvoline brake fluid which I read is pretty good compared to Castrol GT LMA, I bought it on sale for $5.99 for 32 ounce bottle at Advanced Auto Parts in Yonkers,NY, the sale ended 8/29/12.
Since I don't track my car , I believe this is a good fluid.

Valvoline Synthetic
High dry boiling point up to 480F
Minimum wet boiling point is 311F

High dry boiling point up to 446F
Minimum wet boiling point is 311F

I've used both brands in various cars over the years with no problems.
