Is this the right RO/DI System?

Is this the right type of system to buy for my 75gal FOWLR aquarium i'm in the process of setting up?

I just bought this one from the same seller after looking all around.

150GPD 0ppm Reverse Osmosis+(2)DI Aquarium Water Filter - eBay (item 110477085307 end time Jan-10-10 19:40:01 PST)

...many others on bulkreefsupply.com, etc, but IMO they're all the same. BRS looks like they use better quality filters and fittings, but you can't beat the price. I went with the 150 GPD because I maintain 2 tanks in addition to my own, and it's going to supplement my household system.

Many others on this site have used the same units, I haven't heard anything bad. I would have liked to see the 0.6 micron filter stage that the BRS units use, but I can buy that when I change out the filters.

Looks like what I just set up. I also added a 3gal holding tank.
I have a 1 micron filter, never have seen a .6, I'd go with it if I can find one.

1 Micron MATRIKX® +1 - English

This says in the detail that it's a 0.6 micron carbon block filter (I wonder why they call it 1 micron, or "+1", but whatever.)
