Eheim, Penn Plax or API

Hey guys, i'm moving to college soon, going to bring my tank with me(10G) to breed some shrimp. Anyways, I need to get a new filter because I am planning to do CRS. I've been looking at these three filters.

Penn Plax Cascade 1200
API Filstar XP3
Eheim 2215

I really don't know what to get, they all seem to be equal in reviews and all. Personally if you were in me legs what would you get?

Yeah Eheim is probably the way to go. If not then API would be next.

Hmm, I read some reviews on the XP3, apparently it has a leak issue. Anyone with this experience.
