My favourite remote focus unit is the cmotion. It has a modular design so you only have to carry around what you really need. Check it out at http://www.cmotion.at/

I don't know about the others but the Arri does cost a fair bit. I ordered a remote system from them last week and it came to about ?27 000. That was with 3 motors for remote focus, iris and zoom. The motors alone were ?2641 each.
It's a good system, but I've never seem or tried any of the others, so I can't really offer a comparison.
I'm not sure if you've used one, but it's also modular in the sense that each separate controller just clips on to the other depending on what you need. The new version also supports video cameras and it's possible to get lens data on a video camera with pro35 and master primes if you have the right parts for the system. You can also start/stop the cam.
