Eheim classics are the best for long-term reliability IME, but the flow rate may be lower than you want depending on your stocking.

People are mostly going to say eheim or fluval. I really like my fluval 406.

So far I really like my Colbalt. It's got an adjustable flow and the pump is on the exterior. This means more room for media and that you can maintain water circulation when you detach the canister for cleaning/maintenance.
The construction feels solid, but to be honest I haven't had it up and running long enough to comment on long-term reliability.

I got a CF500UV two years ago from TruAqua, have never had any problems with it, works great half the price of most filters I priced as well.
