Which canister

I got a flyer from one of my lfs's and there are 4 canister filters. I was just wondering what everyone thinks is the better deal. The first one is marineland multi-stage canister filters starting at $69.99 after mail in rebate. It doesn't say anything about gph. The next one is eheim canister filters starting at $89.99. Included when you buy one of these is s media and valve set. Then there is an API nexx filter. Rated up to 55 gallons. Then they have a Rena filstar canister filter for $99.99. Rated for up to 45 gallons.

Anyways I was just wondering on what everyone thought was the best deal.

Do research don't buy till you compare from amazon.com they usually blow the pants off every 1.

I no that buying online is cheaper but I'd rather not have to go through the hassle. And I would do the research but the only thing is I. The add it didn't say how much for what rating just starting prices other then the API.

What exactly do you see as the hassle of buying online? Amazon is remarkably easy to deal with, has great prices, fast shipping, excellent customer service and return assistance, etc.

I no it's easy but there is always the chance of it getting broken or lost. Then you have to call and explain what happened. Also it doesn't beat going out buying it and bringing it home right then and there.

To each his own I suppose. Last time I received a broken shipment, or failed to receive entirely, from a reputable online dealer was, well, never.

Saving 30-60 dollars sometimes even more is better than instant gratification IMO .
