Which inline external pump ????

I am going to purchase an inline external pump and was wondering what one was the most recommend and the quietest.

My choices are as follows.
1. Gen-X PCX-40 (Mak4) "1190 gph"
2. Iwaki MD40RLT "750 gph"
3. Little Giant Quarium 4-MDQ-SC "850 gph"
4. BlueLine HD40 "780 gph"


It would be great to hear from anyone that has had experience with any of these pumps.

If you have any other pumps that I should have considered please let me know. As I am always open to suggestions.

Thanks for the help

Is the Gen-X quiet? As the tank is located right next to the sofa.

Thanks

I have the bigger brother of the one above and its fairly quite for the water it pushes. Just a low hum.

The Gen-X is very quiet. Although everyones definition of quiet is different! Usually the small GPH pumps are not that loud. When you get into the bigger pumps then they start to get loud!
