Looking for a new filter

I'm looking to get a new filter for my 10g tank. I don't know what one would be better for the tank. The tank is currently divided with a betta on each side. Here are my choices:

AquaClear Aquarium Power Filters

Aqueon QuietFlow Aquarium Power Filters

Marineland Penguin BIO-Wheel Power Filters

Tetra Whisper EX Filtration System

The amount of noise does not matter to me. What are your opinions, and recommendations?

I've been thinking of the Marineland. I've heard that for the aquaclear's free filter replacements, you have to own it for a year and keep all receipts. once owned for a year, they will send you the same amount back for free.

Get the aquaclear. There my favorite. Quiet, highly effective, and a good flow. For the filter replacement things, just rinse them in tank water or buy new ones, there pretty cheap.

I don't like biowheel filters either. I had two Marineland Penguin 350's on a tank and the biowheels caused tiny bubbles in the water. So many bubbles that my water had a cloudy look to it. I ended up removing the biowheels from the filters which solved the problem. Plus, I didn't like how the biowheels always eventually end up slowing and stalling or stopping all together and the trouble it was to clean out those tiny grooves they rest in.

The AquaTech filter is basically a Marineland Penguin without the biowheels. I'd choose the AquaTech over the Marineland and save a little money and headache.

I use the Aquaclear.

The biowheel will create too much surface agitation for your betta.

The whisper has crappy media design with the carbon attached to the filter pad, so I would avoid that one or use different media.
