When I was growing up we had the Kreepy Krauly pool cleaner. It worked great for several years, though it seemed to get stuck in one particular corner every once and a while.

I am wondering if the cost is worth it? I see a lot of other automatic pool cleaners for around $150. And they all seem pretty similar except with varying levels of plastic "flair" on the outside.
Should I go with what I know or do people here know of a really good alternative that is cheaper and will perform just as well.
