I own both. I bought the aqueon because I didn't think I had the time, so the cost would balance out...boy was I wrong. I made my own sump from a 20 gallon long tank with some glass Lowes cut for me for 48 dollars...Not only that, the aqueon is difficult to clean and backwards with where your skimmer needs to go. It is not set up well at all. Build your own.

+1 I had both too. The Aquino is now in my basement. Build your own. Much more fun, cost effective, and effective for your tank.
