Looking to buy 5000-8000 stone, which would be good for me?

Ok, so I left edgepro back in Canada, and so far I have a 220 and a 1000 grit stone, both are king, and I am looking to get a higher grit finishing stone so I can practice and keep my knives nice and sharp.

I have found numerous 5000, 6000 and 8000 stones, all at reasonable prices, but now I have found a few brands and not sure which route to go.

For example I can get a 6000 grit king for $14 or I could get a 5000 grit Shapton for $20. I don't really want both, and either 5000 or 6000 is going to be fine I'd think, but am I going to notice a difference between the brands? There is also Shrimp brand with a naniwa finish, but I don't think thats actually naniwa brand, naniwa just refers to Osaka according to my fiancee.
