simple question: brake fluid

CT sells Prestone synthetic DOT4 (230 deg temp), while speciality auto stores sells the german stuff, ie: Ferodo DOT4 (230 deg temp), at a much higher cost. My question is, can the CT product be used in our cars, or will it have negative effects on the seals and or higher percentage of absorbing water, ABS problems? I dont race my car just street drive it. I change my fluids every two years. To me, if i can get it locally from any auto store and it says DOT4 then its good enough.... or is it? thanks in advance.

The Prestone stuff from CT is perfectly fine for the street.
