All of those brands are just fine highly recommended..
Neither is really better than the other..

We would need more details to suggest why one option would be better than another.. or more specifically how exactly to build the best system for your specific situation..

Incoming TDS?
Chlorine vs Chloramines?
How do you intend to use the system?
Drinking water also?

How many/how big are your tanks that you need 300gpd? That's one heck of a lot of water?

Mcgyvr is correct that any of those companies would be just fine. I'm partial to BuckeyeHydro myself. Great service, the ability to customize their product to exactly what you are looking for, and fast delivery.

I'll try to be nice if you try to be smarter!
I can't help that I grow older, but you can't make me grow up!

Current Tank Info: 120 mixed reef with 40b sump, RO 150 skimmer, AI Sol Blue x 2, and a 60g Frag Tank with 100g rubbermaid sump. 2 x Kessil A360w lights, BM curve 5 skimmer

I have two spectrapure UHE100's that I added an extra dual stage to (so I can run two carbons instead of a single). While they are only 100 GPD - they are wonderful units. I have them both plumbed into my utility sinks and store the water in 90 gallon rotomold containers.

Fully automated. High and low float switches allow the unit to turn on automatically and off when the container is full. Autoflush the membrane - it had everything I wanted in my RODI.

150 Gal Quarantine. 310 Main Display Tank
