The Best of the Worst- Free Standing Heavy Bags

Hello all,
Due to having non family member tenants I have to get rid of my hanging heavy bag (vibration/noise complaint). That means a free standing heavy bag is my only option since the ceiling is only about 7 feet high, maybe less (cant get a freestanding bag hanger). I have seen nothing but complaints about them but I just want something to hit with a decent amount of force, it does not have to be pro grade. That being said, upon doing some research I have sort of narrowed it down to
http://www.ringside.com/ringside/ringside-freestanding-boxing-heavy-bag.html - Looks very well built and similar to a regular heavy bag, and I like my cobra reflex bag from ringside (even though this forum seems to hate it)
http://store.titleboxing.com/title-power-reflex-freestanding-heavybag.html - This looks like the title version of the ringside, I assume they are identical but if anyone has any preferences among the two please let me know
and lastly the wave master XXL
http://store.titleboxing.com/titleboxing-wavemaster-xxl.html - Honestly, the wave master looks the cheapest made of the 3 but some people say its not so bad.

Any input would be great, and remember, I am looking for the best of the worst, it has to be serviceable and somewhat close to a real heavy bag. Also, its for purely boxing, no kicking or crazy gyrations. It will be in the basement and cannot vibrate the whole house.

The freestanding will vibrate the house if you hit it hard enough.

Your best bet is to buy a fresstanding hanger.
