Default Calcium Reactor Choice

I am looking into purchasing a new calcium reactor. What are some good units to get?

Was looking into the GEO 612 or a ReefTek.

Any Suggestions or reviews on these models???

Might be a little pricey for me right now. Looking in the $300 range. Which would you go with between the GEO and ReefTek?

in your price range there are a few good models
octopus cr-140
korallin c1502
aqua crx-1
all these are in the 300 dollar range and are pretty sweet reactor. these units also have package deals if needed
