I saw it on Ebay.....

NIB OCTOPUS BH-1000 HOB PROTEIN SKIMMER W/ OTP1000 PUMP - eBay (item 200366471504 end time Aug-23-09 08:33:17 PDT)

I probably wouldn't buy from this seller, as I usually only buy from actual ebay stores, but that gives you an idea of the price.

Here's a link to all the octopus HOB models: Hang on Back HOB Reef Octopus Protein Skimmers. My favorites are the bh-2000, bh-300f, and the bh-800s. You can choose any of their models and still get a great product IMO. I just like those models in particular. Once I upgrade to a 72/75g I will more than likely get the bh-300f.

Oh, and when I was doing some research, they say the Sicce pump on the 800 is usually quieter than the Resun pumps on the 300F and has less noise issues.

Hmmm.....so I may get the BH-800s..... I have really only heard complaints about noise on the bh-1000 and 2000 because they are external pumps but the noise wasn't very loud.
