I've used the 2028 for a 75 gallon, and it's a great filter. However, I think the self priming and flow measure is a little overrated. The nicest feature IMO is the media baskets. With that being said I definately prefer the classics. I'm running a 2213 on a 29g, 2215 on a 65g, and a 2217 on a 58g. Flow rate can be adjusted with the shut-off valves. Make sure to invest in the filter that will last you. My 2215 is close to 10 years old now and I've never had a maintenance issue.
However, I've heard nothing but great things about the filstars too.
