Bafang or other motor brands?

Does anybody know how much it maters what motor type e-bikes and kits use? Is it like "Honda" vs "Ford" or is it more like it just doesn't matter and all the motors in the e-bikes and the kit packages pretty much the same in quality?

-An e-bike I think has "Bafang" motors:

-A kit I'm considering that looks like a similar motor:

I found comments about Bafang and 'Tonkin' or Tonxin motors but does it really matter? Somehow I didn't think I would be so confused about something like electric assist on my bike but now that I see all the options i guess i should get some opinions.

Thanks, anyone with ideas!
