Best option for cheap canister filter?

I have been looking at cheap canister filters since adding a co2 system to my tank. I will NOT spend over $100 on one. I have found 2 that I can't decide between. The first is a SunSun hw-302. The second is a Jebao 200 gph filter off ebay.

Sun Sums are good. You could also check craigslist for a quality filter

You could get an Eheim classic on Amazon for <$100.

I love the sunsuns. I have a few of them in different sizes. My eheim classic is a pain to clean and prime.
