And, unfortunately, you're stuck with what you can afford.
I bought the steel bit I have to put standpipes in tanks (10 and 20
gallon) for a rack system. It was my first experience drilling
glass, and I broke one tank by trying to go too fast, but the rest
came out good enough (i.e., the fittings don't leak). The bit seemed
well balanced and did not cut sloppily, just slowly. MMV. I had the
advantage of a drill press, which no doubt made all the difference as
far as quality of cut and hand tiredness goes.
However, it took me a whole day to drill the tanks. In retrospect,
the diamond bit could've paid for itself in time savings alone.
