The GM one is significantly smaller than the other two. I had one "under the "AC/Delco" brand name I bought at Kragen. After a while it wouldn't hold, so I bought a Harbor Freight.

No matter which one you get, make sure you read the directions on how to bleed the air out of the cylinder. That does seem to be required on these floor jacks from time to time.

I see you are currently banned, so I'm not sure if you will see this, but this is on sale for $89.99 today if you haven't bought one yet:
