in my expericnce of having a similar filter i would say that its main advantage is the backflush system. This allows cleaning by reversing the flow through the filter,squeezing the sponges together and flushing out waste.
The sponges are usually quite small so the trapping of waste particles could be reduced and the surface area of the media is quite small.This is where your benefical bacteria colonises.Both these issues can restrict fiteration.
They are fine if you are stocked at a reasonable level,perhaps consult with the manufactuer about safe stock levels and the max pond size is 500 gal for this filter
