Neo co2 or diy co2?

Hello,
I want to get a co2 system to my 10g, however, I want it to be cheap, since I'm a university student and I don't see myself staying in this country after I graduate.
I was looking at a co2 system that I saw in my LFS, the Neo CO2, however I heard it is the same as diy co2, but I also heard it lasts for 50 days +/- which is a really big benefit for me since I don't see myself switching the yeast every week or so, pressurized co2 is out of the question because it is 70 + the cheapest solution, and I don't have that kind of money to spend.

Does anyone have any experience with the Neo CO2 or ever heard anything good or bad from someone?

First time that I've heard of this product. Seems a bit too good to be true.

If you don't want to use DIY CO2, you could try glutaraldehyde.

Its just a glorified diy system. They probably use more complex sugars and additives to slow yeast activity. Up to 50 days though, keeping a steady pressure the whole time - I'm sure there's some bull behind that statement right there.

I tried DIY CO2 and it wasn't pretty for me at all.

So good luck and hope you don't waste money like I did.
