The Eheims seem to have come down dramatically in price lately.  You can get
a 2217-Plus with all fixin's (media, etc.) for $159 at Pet Warehouse.
That's only $60 more than a 403 from the same place, and the 2217 is rated
for a much larger tank (159 vs 100 gallons, according to the specs in the
Pet Warehouse catalog).  An even better deal is the 2213-Plus.  It's only
$89, versus $79 for a Fluval 303.

(Note: I have never used a Fluval, so I make no claims about the quality or
alleged lack thereof of the Fluvals.  I'm just going on price comparisons).
