Which Skimmer to buy?

Hey, need some advice on which skimmer to buy. I've been running a Prism skimmer on my 55 gal FOWLR tank. It's been ok but i'm looking to upgrade to something better and hopefully quieter. After reading a bunch of forums i'm just not sure which way to go as one very important thing to me is the noise level. So I'm between the AquaC Remora, the CPR Bak-Pak, and this Coral-Life Super Skimmer i've been reading about in there forums. CoralLife is very attractive given it's price, but i don't want to make the same mistake again as i did with the Prism.
Could you guys let me know which way you would go, and why? That would help me out a lot. Thanks. Keep in mind I want a quiet skimmer that does a good job as well.

Sorry, it will be a HOB skimmer.

Sump or HOB? The CSS isn't that quite but I've heard the AquaC Remora is pretty quite.


If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P
