Reef Octopus Skinmers

Looking for someone to simplify for me, the differences between the regular RO, the Extreme, the Diablo, and the SRO.
Have been looking at them all, and am getting confused on the actual differences between them.
Any clarification would be appreciated! :-/

The difference between the regular Octopus (the "NWB" models), the XS Extreme (the Diablo is the same thing but made by CoralVue) and the SRO is the pump they use. The NWB uses an Octopus (OTP) pump, the XS (Diablo) uses a Sicce pump and the SRO uses a BubbleBlaster pump. They all have the same bodies.
For example the NWB200($280), XS200($325) and SRO300($415) all have the same body but use different pumps. The cost of the pumps reflects the differences in price.

I think another difference is where the pump is situated. Some have the pump next to the skimmer and some have the pump under the skimmer to save space. The ones with the pump next to the skimmer are cheaper.

I love my NWB 150.
