I would like to try it but getting it here in Canada is... interesting. Other than that, for reliability and longevity go with an eheim.
Although I had a Zoo Med 501 on a 10 gallon and it was one of my favorite tanks, I would recommend larger if a "turtle type" filter is used. Many like the Finnex 360, I would personally try the 511 myself, as my 501 has been ultra reliable and super quiet for years.
If you have a nice stand, I would go with something suited for under the tank. If not, and you want a canister, see above. If you just want a simple low tech tank, I would do an AC 20 or 30. Actually, I would get an AC 50 and an AC 20 or 30 impeller for more media.
