The Tom Rapids Mini Filter is known to break at the input and output spouts on the housing(I've broken one myself). I can say that my zoomed 501 is extremely sturdy and durable.
This is the cheapest place I could find (price + shipping). Put in the code 7GGT5G for 5% off. http://www.reptilesupply.com/product...roducts_id=404
