RO? RO/DI? which to get?

Recently one of my bufddy in here showed me one RO and one RO/DI unit on ebay
Clear Reef 6st 100GPD Reverse Osmosis RO Water Filters - eBay (item 110443010163 end time Oct-13-09 20:18:27 PDT)

New 6st 100GPD Reverse Osmosis RO+DI+TANK Water Filters - eBay (item 380165734622 end time Oct-13-09 20:18:32 PDT)

RO price is like $50 cheaper compare to the RO/DI, is having the DI section recommended?

The extra DI stage is really not nessary and will only cost you more when flilter replacement time comes along. How much better then 0 tds do you need?

I have a coralife one that does 50GPD.....it takes a bit of time to fill your tank but if you let it run overnight it's not too bad. Very simple to use and setup....and I like that
