are cheap PS's actually cheap

What do you think about these super cheap skimmers? Theyre very cheap, so I assume that as a product they really will be cheap, but just seeing what others think.

I heard that the visi jet skimmer was a piece of crap but who knows?! I bit the bullet and went with the cpr bak pak for $125 for my 30 gal. Works well!

The airlift skimmer is an air driven skimmer requiring an air pump, depending on the pump necessary to run the skimmer, it could end up being a fairly expensive skimmer. Of the two posted, I would go with the air lift, the visijet is a stretch to call it a skimmer
