Red Sea turbo co2 Bio system?

So I was wondering if the Red Sea co2 system was worth the money? I know a DIY would be cheaper but I'm really bad at that kind of stuff, although I would be able to make my own refill no problem ( i think any way). So have any of you had good luck with these?

Are you talking about the pressurized unit that Red Sea sells, or the Red Sea Bio CO2 system?

If it is the former, there are cheaper ways of obtaining a pressurized CO2 system (take a look in my Primer to Pressurized CO2 for more information).

If you are talking about the latter, it is simply DIY CO2 (i.e. yeast and sugar) in a fancy package. I would just go with yeast and sugar in a 2 litre soda bottle and save some money.
