Help with mini-cannister filters (ie Eheim Aquacompact)?

Hi there, new 10-day old 20gal long heavily planted aquarium here. Right now I have a HOB Tetra Whisper 20 and I want to upgrade to more filtration capacity and something quieter. I just bought an Eheim 2211 but I'm reading that it needs to be below the tank and I only have space on the side... So I guess it wont work (or will it?).

Eheim's website shows a mini cannister filter which might work. Does anyone have any experiences with them? I see very little about them around the web... Also they seem hard to find in the USA for some reason. Any thoughts or advice?

Check out the Finnex px 360. Good reviews and I love mine.
