SWC 150 BMK Equivalent???

Finally narrowed down my choice on a skimmer. It was between the SWC Xtreme 120 Cone Skimmer and the SWC Xtreme 150 BMK. Long story short, I decided to go with the 150 BMK due to it's compact size, stellar price point and also the fact that it would allow me to upgrade to a 75 gallon tank without having to get another skimmer. Problem is that I ordered the skimmer and then I get told that they are not shipping because of problems with the pumps on this model.

Anyone care to weight in on a possible alternative skimmer? I have a 40B with 20L sump. I was thinking SWC 120 or Reef Octopus NWB110 but I've read reviews that say these two might be a bit undersized. NWB 150 looks good but the footprint is so much bigger. HELP!!!!!
