Default Plate Chiller

Can someone recommend a good but inexpensive plate chiller? I do 5 gallon batches. Thanks.

I use the B3-12A 40 Plate. Amazon has them for $112. Temperature drop is ~200 to 65 for me doing 10 gallon batches.

It takes about 20 minutes. I regulate the flow to get the temperature I want. Water temp is around 55 here.

I use a Shirron plate chiller, picked it up on ebay for around $70. I can chill 5 gal from boiling to 70deg in 15-20min. The wort is gravity fed and use a submersible pond pump to pump ice water through the chiller.
