Decent 300 gph sump pump

Was looking at the MJ1200... Reasonably priced. Any thoughts and or recommendations? Do not mind spending a little more but would like to stay under $75 range...

As you know I'm looking at them as well! I heard good things about the Eheim. They seem to be a lot more expensive than the mag drives. I did read that the mags put off a lot of heat. I would be curious to hear from others on that issue. I live in Texas and while I do run my AC, I would want to know if it will heat the water up considerably or are we talking about a degree or two? Not interested in purchasing a chiller because of my mag drive!

I have a mag 18 otp 3000 and 4 powerheads nada Marineland pump plus lights with no heater and the temp is ~78. House runs at 73 so the mag doesn't do that much.
