You are going to need to answer some simple questions.
Flow rate from the well.
Flow rate needed in the house.
Iron level in ppm.
Ph level

How much maintenance are you planing on for any given year?

It is not as simple as popular or cheap...

It is still a puzzle when people spend big bucks for every thing else in the house and then look for the cheapest water treatment going.

i see your points. does it defeat the purpose of an iron filter if the inside of well casing is rusty and the water line from the well is galvanized steel?

It would be a very good idea to have a well driller do service to the well and pump.
Test the pump for out put and flow , and work over the well as there could be so much build up that any water test will have false information.
If it can be done it would be good to replace the line from the pitless to the house, some thing that you can ask the well driller.
Doing the above could be your fix, if not then you know some facts about the well and the water test will be a more truthful one, then you can get the Right Equipment for what the water quality.
