Which chiller?

Hi,
I've trouble deciding which chiller to get for my tank. Can anyone share with me bad/good experience with any brands?
I was looking at Eido, Arctica, Eclima and Aqualogic. However, Aqualogic seems not available in my country.
I've read that Arctica and Eido have models that are compressor-less. Anyone tried these models?
My tank is 50 gallon and my ambient temperature can be as high as 32 celsius. I'm thinking of getting something larger for future upgrade.
Any useful information for me to decide the chiller will be appreciated.
Thank you.

My tank temperature fluctuates between 29 to 32 celsius between night and day. I'm thinking of getting a 175 gallon tank as upgrade.

You can get any chiller that is at least 1/5 HP for your 50 Gal . as for your 175, you need a 1/4HP.

Thanks for your reply. I've decided to take the Arctica 1/4HP that can support up to 240gallons. It's rather quiet and very efficient for my tank size. Took only an hour to cool from 30 celsius to 26 celsius. :P
