Well picking out servo's always depends on what you want to do with them. if whatever you're using them for needs allot of torque, make sure you buy a strong servo. or maybe you're looking for something that doesn't barely require and torque at all?

The brackets were designed around the Hitec/RCD servos however other brands may fit... some better than others. I don't believe I have yet seen anybody compile a list per-se of which work better or worse than others.

Might check, I believe Futaba servos turn in the opposite direction!

They fit the brackets (S3003/3004 exemplars)

My brat started with Hitec 645MG's. As the payload increased topside I found them struggling to maintain an upright posture. I have since upgraded the thigh and knee servos to Hitec 5990TG's and am much happier. Best advice, buy one a month, you'll be happier in the long run and spent less.
