Default Quick Element Question

I see that Home Depot sells several different 240v 5500w elements. Is any one of these preferable? Thanks.

Opinions (by their very definition) differ on whether or not ULWD elements are necessary. But, since they are relatively cheap, I'd recommend playing it safe. The 5500W elements are "rippled" to get the maximum surface area. Here is where I bought mine:
