Never been a fan of the hose connectors with the extra clips, that's all.

Regarding two DI cartridges etc...
You've not mentioned your water parameters that will go through the RO unit.

Add a manual flush valve kit @ least.
Purge/flush before you begin saving the water produced and at the end of run flush again.

When it comes time to replace all of your cartridges it could be cheaper to buy another unit as the same price point.
But I don't know what replacements cost for this style unit.

Aquatic Life RO Buddie Reverse Osmosis Systems is a very simple and effective RO filter. It took me about an hour to have it mounted, purged (as per instructions) and making clean water. Hooked up to a kitchen sink faucet with a water hose adapter that I already had. Starting water is 8.5 ph and 180 ppm. Clean water come out at 5 ppm and 6.7 ph, then stabilizes within a few hours to 7.0. Perfect RO water. First run made 40 gallons in about 20 hours. I run the source water temperature at around 85F for improved flow. The mount is great; the entire filter system can be easily removed from the mount and stored away when not filtering water.
