Well your either looking at a large fountain, sib or some Catherine wheels give that duration and all can offer colour.

Depends what effects you want and if it's for ground or aerial view.

Thank you @Rich, first typo for this years competition :p

Too slow on the edit there ;)
@callistos have a look at Rampage by AF, seems to be some stunning colours in it, big range of effects too :) £59.99 is a fairly standard price for it, which i think is good for a 150 shot, 1000g cake. Lasts about 100 seconds too

Technically it wasn't a typo. I am using my phone as Internet down and auto correct decided to make an appearance and add lings to sib as it didn't recognise it lol.

to be fair, if it wasn't for auto correct, there wouldn't be half as many typos as there are, which is no fun ;)

I had to read that reply to you back to myself and found 2 auto corrects which would've given me 2 more entries lol. Corrected them before sending.

haha, shame you found them :( ;) 3 entries in the space of 30 minutes would have definitely been a record :D

oh, and back on the topic, Manta by Tai Pan is another very colourful cake, just over 50 seconds duration :)

Manta's fairly small, 450g or so, 42 shot. About £25-£30 would be a reasonable price for it. Some very good colours in it though, my personal favourite effect being the brocade and blue stars :)

Planet Fireworks 3 Minute Spectacular is a good choice;a great Single Ignition Box with a wide range of effects and long duration, and is easy to use;just place on a flat level surface, light, step back and enjoy. ;)
