I suppose it depends on your budget & tank size. remember it is better to over filter than under filter and the eheim 2217 has more gph than the 2215. I have a 2215 on a 29 gal & its not really enough flow, so I upgraded that one to the 2217. If you find the flow to be to much it is not a problem because you can easily crank it down. Now have the 2215 as a spare since I do have a number of tanks. I know from personal experience that the Eheim classics are just that classic. I have had some in service everyday for more than 20 years. So there you have it my 2 cents :-)

Eheim Classics will run quietly forever. If you don't have room for a 2217 but want that kind of output, put a 2217 impeller into a 2215 head... if you still need more flow, use more coarse media and a thinner layer of floss on top of the stack (but you will have to rinse it out more often) or better yet, add a power head or two.

I have no experience w/ the last option in the original post but would recommend Eheim Classic over the rest of the list.
