Best fluid trainer : Blackburn or Elite fluid primo trainer?

After asking myself whether I should buy a fluid or a mag trainer, I decided to go with the fluid. I tried the Tacks Mag trainer (Swing) and the Blackburn fluid trainer. I was also considering an other fluid trainer, the Elite fluid primo (see link below). After talking with the seller at my LBS, I am down to 2 choises (mentionned in the title). I've heard from the Blackurn, but not from the other one. Anyone has it at home or any experience that I could take into consideration before making my final choice?
I am giving myself the weekend to think it over!

elite trainer: (couldn't find the manufacturer's website)

I took some time investigating the various fluid trainers and I went with Kurt Kinetics Road trainer. Awesome!

cyclops. I have a magneto that I hae been very happy with that has travelled to many races. I was really quiet, but I dropped it at a race, and since then, its made a "clacking" noise, but it still works fine.
