Media Reactor

So i was searching a catalog and came across media reactors. They seem pretty cool. Is it worth having? Seems like they're more for bigger tanks to me...

They are usually for specialized medias that (supposedly) require lower flow rates (really only GFO), usually only in reef tanks. In FW a canister is ideal.

You can run carbon or gfo in them. it's a place to use chemical media other than a canister filter.
