Ebay Protein Skimmers

I've been looking at bidding on a protein skimmer on Ebay, but there are a ton of them on there in my price range, and I really don't know one from another as far as quality: Odyssea, Clean-Up, Sea Clone, Marineland, Berlin Airlift, Oceanic....the list goes on and on. Any of these particularly good, or are they all about the same?

TIA

My tank is 60 gallons. I'd like to stay under about $100 if possible.

BTW, I'm looking at a FOWLR setup, possible keeping a dwarf lionfish. I want to be sure I get a skimmer that can effectively handle that bio-load. Thanks again.

Do not, I repeat do not get a sea clone.

Trust other people and read up on skimmers. From what I have seen on multiple boards the best are Aqua C Remora, Balpak. But do some research for yourself.
