Eheim Pro 3 2075 vs. Filstar XP3

Hi! I have a 75 gallon freshwater aquarium and am looking to replace a HOB filter with a canister filter. I was leaning towards the Filstar XP3 (because it seems to be a good filter for the price) but came across a great deal in which I can get an Eheim 2075 for about $20 more than the XP3. Given that the price is so close, does anyone think I should choose the XP3 over the 2075?

I don't know about the Eheim 2075 but I do have a Filstar XP3 on my big tank and so far I love it. It's very quiet and seems to be doing a great job on my tank. I have the classic Eheim system on my smaller 20 gallon tank. Both filters are new (one month old) and I suspect the XP3 is going to be way easier to clean now that I've set both up.
