I have a similar RO/DI, but I have heard the 75GPD is a better unit. You might also want to get one with see through containers.

I bought 1 from Ebay a few years ago, very similar to the 1 you linked. I also have the water storage tank like Scott mentioned.
1 thing to remember, in a few years the only thing you will have original from the unit are the filter canisters. All the filters will be changed out, so in that respect, there is really no difference in any of the RO/DI units beside the capacity of the ro membrane and the quality of the replacement filters.

I agree with cccapt. I have the exact unit you linked to above. I love it I order my replacement filters from the same seller on ebay. I have no complaints or issues with the unit or the seller. I've been using it for nearly 3 years now.
