Genuine Mitsubishi and better quality. Peace of mind and IMHO wouldn't get anything other than genuine when it comes to timing, head gaskets, etc. I Definately wouldn't trust the 2nd option in your picture "Mitsuboshi" :-D

As dodgy as it sounds, Mitsuboshi are OEM manufacturers for some Mitsubishi belts (My genuine Mitsubishi alternator belts are just Mitsuboshi belts in a Mitsubishi box.)

I wouldn't be surprised if the Mitsubishi and Mitsuboshi belts are identical. But still, for the sake of $30 I'd be ordering the genuine part.
Nothing says "poor workmanship" more than wrinkles in the duct tape.
