RODI - Which one do you have?

I have been searching the archives for people that have recently bought RODI setups and want to ask if anyone has any other suggestions? I dont know that I like the DI cartidges on top (horizontal) as I could see where water might slip through. Suggestions or thoughts? I want to stay around $100 + SH
Here are some that have been posted.

I have the Filter Direct unit. Besides having to buy a faucet adapter for it, it's worked very good!

This is what I have. But you`ll get a better deal on those ebay sites.

You dont have any issues with the DI cartidges being horizontal instead of vertical?

Wow, that Filter Direct looks like a great deal if it works well.
I may have to stop buying my water at the LFS soon...

I bought this one:

Lots of folks have recommended it. I don't have it hooked up yet.
Make sure you get the one that comes with the extra, free filters....

Nope, works just fine. I have only used mine a few times though, but know of numerous other people who have the same unit with no issues. What issues would there be with a horizontal DI?

I'm gonna need to get one of these soon for my reef tank. This is the one that was recommended to me before but I know nothing about these machines.

Are there better units available for slightly more price or is this one really good?

Personally, I don't know, I haven't hooked it up. LOL! A lot of folks, from this site recommend it.

+++EDIT+++
That specific RO/DI has a reserve tank, for just the RO, for drinking, so that it doesn't waste the extra DI water...I believe.
