Advice on protein powder...I know, beaten like a dead horse

Currently workout Mon-Thu for 1-1.5 hours. 1/2 cardio and 30-1 hour on weights and/or personal trainer. I drive straight home and make a shake with this stuff:

1 "hefty" scoop with water and frozen blueberries and I'm good. I know it's not the purest way to do it but my diet has already increased in health 1000% since 2 months ago.

Prior to working out I take one scoop of BCAA in a 12 ounce bottle of water.

Should I be doing something different or are there better products. I'm not looking to go nuts or anything either. I will say due to my diet I've now dropped from 206-195 and increased some muscle mass too. I feel a lot better now that I work out so I will be doing this quite frankly until my schedule doesn't allow it. Also, I am consuming total around 100-130 grams of protein per day. Is that too much or too little considering my weight?

I've been using MP Combat Powder. I drink two daily (one in the morning, one in the evening). Even after some really hard workouts, I haven't been sore since I started taking it. It's very reasonably priced on Amazon.com, too (vanilla and chocolate are the cheapest).

picked some up on bodybuilding.com

Excited that it also includes BCAA's in the formula.

I would just stick with gold standard by Optimum Nutrition. I have used them for years and when it comes to PP the main thing is just picking a company that isn't shiesting you with aminos and calling it protein on the nutritional label. There are third-party testing services and they point to ON being ON...point. Paying a little extra to know I'm getting what I intended makes sense to me--just like paying more for an oem part.
