Mixed Review By David on 5/13/13David wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have purcahed several of these in the last few years. Up until the last two, I would count them as reliable. The first lasted nearly 3 years between two systems. The last two have lasted less than 6 months combined. These would be awesome probes otherwise.
Luckily no major problems, though the first time around, it took me some time to track down the issues I was seeing in the tank as temp related. When I checked the controller log, there was a very wide temp swing overnight and 3 degree gap between optimal and high temp during the day.
Nearly KILLED me, FINNEX won't replace! By jeremy on 4/19/13jeremy wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis item malfunctioned and released electricity into my sump within 2 weeks of use. It shocked me pretty bad. I tested it a few times to make sure it was the heater and I recreated it each time. I contact Finnex and mailed it in to them which cost me $18.
They refused to replace the heater because it tested "within spec" whatever that means. I am out $58 due to this AWFUL product.
DANGER --- DO NOT BUY FROM FINNEX!!!!
Well built By Brad on 4/2/13Brad would recommend this product to a friendIt's too early to tell on overall life, but the unit seems well built and works great with my RKL.
Works Well By RLDCPA on 3/31/13RLDCPA would recommend this product to a friendI originally bought another brand of heaters (2 300w heaters with a thermostat) but they were not enough for my 230 gallon tank. So I bought this Finnex 800 watt model and has worked great with my Neptune controller.
As these are fairly inexpensive as they have no thermostat in them, I bought another and put it in another compartment of my sump. I figure 2 will be safer if on ever fails. And the Neptune Apex logs your power usage so I will now exactly when it fails if it does.
If feel that using a controller is the way to go rather than a thermostat built in to the heater and cheaper in the end anyway.
works good for the price By Jimmy on 3/27/13Jimmy would recommend this product to a friendBeen using this for awhile, so far it's been very reliable.
So far so good By cdbstl76 on 3/15/13cdbstl76 would recommend this product to a friendI have this on my RKL running in the sump of a 100 gallon system, 75 main, 25 sump. My previous heater of a different brand was leaking current. This one isn't having any detectible excessive current leak. So, that alone make me happy. Over time, we will see how this unit works.
Accurate heater By holder45 on 2/26/13holder45 would recommend this product to a friendInstalled 500W on 120G display with 40G sump. Using Reef Keeper Lite as the controller, it maintains constant temp within 0.1 degree Fahrenheit. Running less than a month, but so far so good. If it lasts, then it will be a 5 star purchase.
Ok but doesn't last. By Matt. on 1/12/13Matt. would recommend this product to a friend500 watt Heater worked just fine for about 8 months. Not what I would describe as a "deluxe" heater.
Work like charm By Justin on 12/26/12Justin would recommend this product to a friendI got the 800W for 300 gal system and this product works. Thanks BRS
so far so good By joel on 11/27/12joel would recommend this product to a friendI am heading into my first winter with a freshwater discus tank at 83F. I needed good heaters instead of the 6 random ones I had laying around. I have 2 800 watt heaters in the sump connected to my apex. If you can hook up to a controller instead of buying the one for it, It is a great deal at 50 dollars. So far this has been a great heater. I will be interested to to see how long they last.
so far so good By joel on 11/27/12joel would recommend this product to a friendI am heading into my first winter with a 230 gallon Discus tank at 83F and needed heat. I went with two 800 watt heaters hooked up to my apex. This option has worked much better then my 6 random sized heats I had in there. The cost is also a better option if you have a controller. At 50.00 a piece they work great. As for the life expectancy, it is to soon to tell.
Good Heater By Alen on 11/27/12Alen would recommend this product to a friendI purchased one of these heaters with out a controller, I use it on my RKE, it works great, haven't had a problem with it yet.
It doesn't come with suction cups, but the ends have good rubber on Them you don't have to worry about hitting it on the side of your glass.
