A few links that sum up each of the three filters fairly well. Note that Sawyer is only listing bacteria and protozoa. Sawyer does not even mention other contaminants. Both Berkey and Trio list a plethora of other contaminants that their filters reduce well below EPA standards for drinking water. I am merely pointing out what is plainly there before us. I point it out simply because most people seem to overlook these life affecting facts. Y'all do your own research and make your own decisions.

This guy calls the Mini "the best water filtration system so far" yet in his article flat out admits the Mini is inadequate and recommends using a Berkey. Maybe he was unaware of the Trio and how easy it is to DIY a replacement Berkey filter into a gravity system.  http://graywolfsurvival.com/3151/prepper-gear-review-sawyer-mini-water-filtration-system/ "the Sawyer Mini filter, as with almost all filters out there, doesn’t filter chemicals so you need an extra step to be absolutely positive that the water you’re drinking is safe. The Berkey SPTREP Replacement Filter for GSPRT Sports Bottle is what he’s talking about. Run the Sawyer first and then into the Berkey so it lasts longer."
