I put together this comparison table a few months ago:

The LHG-5nD and RB911G-5HPnD-QRT (QRT-5) are both good options if you
don't need maximum antenna gain.

For more gain, an option that isn't listed on that page (though a very
similar one from Arc is) is Mikrotik's mANT30 dish. I just picked up
one of these:
Couple that with a BaseBox5:

If you give me your location I can give you a better idea of how much
antenna gain you'll need.
