Sub $400 reverse osmosis on boat?

These under sink portable 600 gallon/day reverse osmosis machines have peeked my interest to incorporate on my boat:

https://www.water-filter.com/reverse-osmosis-water-filtration-system?msclkid=bd50a2b0b1f2101e3ea5c0b0aed9df3d&ut m_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=PLA-ALL%20PRODUCTS&utm_term=4588743064801250&utm_conte nt=Ad%20group%20%231

While there are many available of questionable quality… would these be feasable for just drinking water use or emergency use? I have a large LiFePo4 bank (420Ah) with plenty solar/wind, and my trusty perkins 4.107 as backup power to run these little (to be determined) miracles.

To be clear, this machine wont be used to fill my fresh water holding tank but just to fill pitchers for drinking water to conserve onboard water storage when i have excess energy to burn or am motoring.

Looking for feedback before i pull the trigger on this risky idea.

btw, replacement filters and membranes are relatively cheap for these compared to marine desalinators..

thanks for your feedback, concerns or experiences!

IIRC, these "undersink" units are for processing fresh water, not salt water.
