Setting up(whats best)

I have just bought a 6ft tank(150) and i am unsure about what filter to use.In my present tank i have an undergravel filter and apart from waiting for it to mature(about 4-5 weeks) i have had no problems with it. But on the other hand i`ve seen lots of power filters in various shops which look like they could do a good job. Do power and box filters take more cleaning and general looking after?Or are they as easy as an ug type? I am also thinking of sand instead af gravel(if the power filters prove the best).Is this a good option? Sorry to ask so many questions but i want to get it right.
