 So  i  was  searching  for  a  filter  for  my  planted  tank  (new  setup  in  progress  -  dimensions  36  x  12x  1Cool  approx  30  gallons.  I  was  more  inclined  towards  HOB's  because  don't  have  any  additional  space  to  keep  the  canister.  Then  i  surfed  to  these  filters  which  are  a  fusion  of  canister  and  HOBS  (Hang  on  external  canister  filters).  Conceptually,  this  seems  to  be  brilliant  because  i  can  attach  a  spray  bar  to  the  outflow  to  manage  the  flow  of  the  tank  as  opposed  to  water  simply  falling  down  from  the  HOB
 
 As  of  now,  i  am  seeking  feedback  if  anyone  has  used  these  filters?

 Too  small  for  a  30  gallon  and  too  expensive  for  a  Sunsun.  Either  go  in  for  HOB  or  a  proper  canister.  Honestly,  unless  you're  keeping  it  on  the  floor,  you  should  be  able  to  keep  the  canister  under  the  aquarium.  
 Hope  the  following  helps:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5FkSTYkEAE

 Ive  never  run  a  cannister,  but  I  have  had  great  experience  running  a  HOB  filter  on  a  30G  cichlid  tank,  was  well  filtered  and  oxygenated.  
 However  HOB  does  not  do  well  with  a  high  tech  planted  tank  since  it  dissipates  the  injected  CO2.  I  think  for  a  low  tech  should  be  good  as  well.

 I  am  not  sure  how  true  this  is,  Our  tanks  are  not  Soda  bottles  to  fizz  out  CO2  when  disturbed.  The  surface  area  increases  when  there  is  surface  agitation  which  gives  more  opportunity  for  CO2  to  escape.
 
 I  use  pressurized  CO2  and  I  have  a  lot  of  surface  agitation  in  my  tank  24X7.  I  don't  see  any  problems  and  plants  pearl  normally.  The  Co2  indicator  is  a  mint  green  color.  i  am  using  two  of  them  on  the  same  tank  at  opposite  ends  and  I  do  not  see  a  difference.
 
 IME  I  think  that  surface  agitation  caused  by  a  HOB  really  does  not  create  much  of  a  difference.
 
 How  ever  the  water  circulation  in  the  tank  caused  by  a  HOB  is  not  as  Good  as  a  Canister  filter  output.
 
 This  particulat  HOB/Canister  is  not  sufficient  for  a  30  gallon  aquarium.

 OK,  thanks  for  the  feedback  everyone.  Narrowed  down  to  two  filters-
 
 Option  A  -  http://www.indianaquarium.com/Filters/GRECH-Hang-On-Back-UV-Filter---800-L-H---CBG-800-id-3257719.html
 
 Option  B  -  http://www.indianaquarium.com/Filters/Hagen-AquaClear-70-Power-Filter-id-2370981.html
 
 Please  suggest  if  i  am  looking  at  the  right  options  and  which  is  more  reliable?

 Try  using  a  TOP  filter,  it  will  have  more  volume  than  a  HOB  filter.  This  will  also  be  a  cheaper  option.
 
 A  Sunsun  302  canister  will  cost  the  same  as  the  HOB  filters  you  have  given  link  to.

 I  know,  but  don't  have  space  in  the  room  to  keep  canister,  hence,  looking  at  the  next  best  option.
