SSL certificate | which one to buy

Hi,
I am in a need for a SSL certificate to communicate with 3rd party component.

I can see many vendors supplying SSL and not sure real difference between them. I can see different Insurance cover with each price tag and I am not worried for it.

Will a cheap SSL cause browser to raise an alert saying cert is from Unidentified source? My site need to work on mobile devices + every OS so it has to be compliant with all browsers. It's needed for business so I don't want to see any browser warnings.

http://www.cheapssls.com/ selling for  8$/year
https://www.thawte.com/ssl/index.html 599/year
http://www.rapidssl.com/ 49$/year
https://www.servertastic.com/rapidssl/ 15$/year

Thanks

You did not provide enough detailing the types of certificate you need.

Your initial suggest that you need a client authenticating certificate.
In your later comment, you suggest that you need to secure a site so tha it can be accessed by others with various devices.

You can get the cheaper while including the complete CA chain to avoid the alerts by browsers.

Yes you can use less expensive SSL certs without errors on clients.

I personally use godaddy. They have $5 specials everwhere for SSL's
