I'm sure you'll alot of opinions here but all three of my freshwater sumps are run off Quiet One pumps from the 6000-9000 models. Ive used Mag's in the past with good success but the Quiet's do run almost silent and the due to the location of the tanks that was important.

I have only seen two models of the Quiet One's at Petsmart are they were the 1200&2200 models which are way to small for my applications. How much water are you looking to turn?

I've used the Mag-Drive pump. I believe it was a MD7. Used it to pump water from my 55 gallon aging barrell to my 55 gallon Discus tank (pumped through about 50 feet of 1/2" hose). Worked great. No experience with the Quiet One pumps but I've never heard anything bad about them. So I would say you can't go wrong with either brands.
