Protein Skimmer=Venturi, Needle Wheel, Air Stone, etc...

Of all the posts I've read nobody has determined which style as the best... It seems like trying to build a better mousetrap... What gives? Which is the best? If it was determined, I could narrow my search. Gimmie some insight here. Thanks in advance...

I would say toss up between needle wheel and downdraft, with needle wheel maybe getting more air into the skimmer.
