I am not sure of comparisons with other brands but I am happy with mine.
I would avoid the petsmart brand "Top Fin", I had 2 products and both were cheaply made.
The only benefit Top Fin has is that most products are guaranteed for life. The TF filters and cartridges are made by Tetra, just rebranded. They're definitely cheap but if it breaks you don't have to run out and spend the full cost of buying another.
