I am in a different country so can't help with specific brands but I would expect all external filters to work well or they would not stay in business.
I am currently using a Jebo on my 250L which has been running trouble free for 7 or 8 years now.
Some of the really cheap models do not last as well and the plastic is thinner and more brittle so parts break more easily. You tend to get what you pay for. Have a play with one in the shop and see how it feel to you as you clip the hinges down, you can feel if they are flimsier than other brands. You also need to be able to get replacement parts easily.
