I think it's worth 20 pounds to get a better filter. The 2217 is (IMO
) a better design and uses significantly higher quality biological media than the fluval.
There's also a 2215 model by Eheim, which is slightly smaller. That would probably be in your price bracket.
If you just don't like the Eheim design after looking at it, don't buy it.
