eheim 2213 for 46 gallon tank?

I'm looking at moving up to a canister filter for my new 46 gallon tank and have settled on an eheim. The 2213 is rated for a 66 gallon tank and only $85 or so. Anyone have experience with this model? Is it enough for a 46g tank? I don't really trust mfg recommendations. Tank is currently cycling, but eventually will be a community tank, a few natural plants if that helps.

personally i would go with the 2215. the extra room for media plus the extra gph thats what i would do. the 2213 is 116gph but thats just how much it can pump doesnt count all the media and going back up to the tank.
