What makes a good protein skimmer?

So tax return season is on me, and I'm wondering, what makes a good protein skimmer?

Easy to setup, use, maintain and most important of all is how well it skimms.

is there any brand preferences? The one I have looks pretty simple compared to most of the ones I see online.
