What Filter for a 15G Tall??

Hey all,
I've been trying to figure out which filter would be best for my 15 gallon planted tank. Right now it has an Aqueon 10 on it as an interim filter before I get something to take its place. I run a Cascade 1500 on my 125 and love it! Was thinking about going for a canister on this tank as well. Here are some of the options I've come up with thus far:
SunSun HW302- 264 GPH - $51
Fluval 206 - 206 GPH - $93
Fluval 106 - 145 GPH - $82

Thoughts, Comments, Concerns?

I've heard good things about SunSun minus their flow rate (which is overkill for a 15 anyway) so you could roll with that. You could also go the cheaper route and get an HOB like an ac30.
