I haven't read about the Aqua Medic yet, but the Kent Marine you linked appears to be an in-sump only skimmer... thus you can't use it with the wet/dry sump that you have now, you'd have to make your own sump and be sure to size the skimmer chamber large enough to allow this guy to sit in it.
Also just a general reaction, while perhaps you've found some great skimmers for cheap, this isn't one piece of equipment that you want to skimp on... I guess the Aqua Medic sounds like it's used (you said 3 months old), so maybe that's why it's so cheap, but I would expect to spend closer to $200-$300 on a skimmer for a 75 gallon tank, to get a quality one. But like I said above that's just my knee-jerk reaction, it doesn't mean you won't find a good skimmer for less.
I'm at work now, but I'll read about the Aqua Medic when I get home, and will give my opinion on it then... otherwise you should consider searching around some other options of skimmer. Hopefully others will chime in as well with their opinions!
