Does it matter what RO/DI unit I buy?

I was looking at this but will it work as well as the other 6 stage that costs 100 shipped? This is only 70 shipped.

Being that it's only 1 filter before the ro membrane, I would think you will clog up the ro membrane pretty quick and need to replace it more often. Besides that, it should work fine.

Shipping on that with insurance turns out to be $104.

What about this one?

Your choice. I picked that one because the filter canisters are clear so you can see the condition of your filters. Mine is clear and I would not want one that is solid. Comes in handy. Only around $10 difference.
