ro/di unit

What's the difference between a plain RO unit, and an RO/DI? Maybe if I knew what the letters "DI" stood for I would be able to figure it out myself. Looking into purchasing one. Are there any prefered brands out there? Any to stay away from? TIA

Ok, did the smart thing and read the article about RO/DI units. So now I know what the difference is. Still would like any suggestions on brands. :P

many are happy with their purchases from ebay (aquasafe, filterdirect etc...) I'd go with a 100GPD one. The ebay ones have good prices.

Well, thanks for the advice. Had spotted one on ebay which caused me to post the question, now it's on it's way to my house. Hope it works out good, if it doesn't I guess it will be a learning experience that didn't cost my $200.
