Is there a real difference between media reactors and canister filters?

Also for a cheap reactor could you just use a tee with a clean out plug on either the return pipe or overflow pipe and put in a mesh bag with which ever media you like?

Canister filters can be made into a great media reactor. Real reactors have raw materials inside, no nylon bag, and slowly tumble water through the media substantially increasing the media's effectiveness.
