[Greenbuilding] best low gpf toilet these days?

I've had three Toto Aquia dual flush toilets in my home, and I have never once needed a plunger having three small children flush every type of toy down them over the past several years.

(I do alway need a cleaning brush near by, due to occasional "drag marks"...)

I'm mystified why this performance would seem to have deteriorated. But of course in the meantime the 1.28 gpf standard has come along. Would anyone care to offer suggestions of what models are particularly good values?
