Bulk reef supply has some under 200 bucks if you really want to get into the 5 stage systems... I've heard people mention an eBay model but The name escapes me. If it were me I'd get the BRS one... I've heard great stuff about them.

The eBay model is called barebones filter, I bought it for around 60$ and it works really well

Id be careful with this. Only reason i say that is because you get what you pay for. A $60 ro unit is prob going to be a) extremely inefficient b) not quality built c) not reliable. Go with the brs Models. They are tried and true, also backed by great customee service
