Downspout diverter recommendation?


We've got 4" round downspouts coming from our main roof, and we're setting up rain barrels to make use of them, for plants and the fishpond, inter alia). (We got one barrel free from the city for converting from estimated to metered water billing.) And so I'm in need of a water diverter.

There are aluminum deals like this:
http://shop.gutterworks.com/4-Round-Diverter.html

and then more whiz-bang-y plastic jobbies like this:

Any successes or failures reportable by the forum folks?

Thanks,
Tim
