So far so good. It is only on my salt water changing station so I don't use it that much yet, but it is quiet and seems to have plenty of power.
I think its a decent pump.
Very Strong Pump By Jorge on 1/21/2014

Fast shipping nice packaging...had the pump for about 2 months now and is very good the pump is very strong so I had to tune it down a bit. This sits on my 125g tank, it has very small noise so no complains in that area, overall good pump couldn't be happier with my purchase. And also this goes thru a UV light system and a chiller still strong flow. highly recommended. Thanks BRS for being of good service for us that leave far away (PR) and for having good prices, cant say the same for your competition Marine De...*cough cough*

This is actually the second pump that i bought. This was bought as a backup for the first panworld 50px-x which has performed flawlessly, powerfully and quietly on a 180 gallon reef with a 50 gallon refugium. Five stars

Awesome pump By James on 7/21/2012

This is my first experience running a larger tank (140g). I did alot of research on pumps looking for efficiencies in power, heat, flow, and price. I wanted a great price so that I could affort to buy a 2nd as a backup. Since the first one ran so impressive, I agreed to buy a 2nd as a backup spare. My pump is 30' from my tank and works perfectly...initially I had to dial down the power but once I tuned the drainage I was able to increase the flow to max. Very happy with this pump :)
Pleased as pump By Jbkilg2 on 7/15/2012

This is my return for a 180 display with 100 gal sump. I had to adjust my plumbing from the sump to feed it by adding two 1.5 in overflows t'd to its 1" intake (one 2" would do the trick). Originally I had a foot of 1" PVC connected that reduced from one 1.5" overflow. Cavitating occurred so I immediately shut it down. The wider pipe closer to the intake did the trick.
I have no complaints about noise and it is pushing a lot of water.
good price, great performance, terrible support from panworld By Darrell on 6/2/2012

This pump pack a punch! awesome flow, super low current draw, and pretty darn quite for the amount of flow it puts out. that being said, you just better hope nothing ever breaks on this pump. my impellar shattered at only a few months of use. Sent pump in for repair since it had a three year warranty. it took months to get any info back from panworld. they refuse to communicate with the general pupblic (us the reefer) and barely communicate with their vendors. they refused to warranty the pump, or even offer parts for me to purchase so I could repair it myself. they kept my pump and never returned it to me. I also had to pay shipping to send it back to them. so basically I donated money to panworld with nothing to show for it. the guys at BRS was great to deal with in trying to get this issue resolved, but panworld would not give in and take care of their customer. long strory short, dont buy this pump thinking you are getting a great warranty and customer service from the manufacturer, because you not. If you want a great performing, great priced pump, then go for it.
micro bubbles By Dan on 5/10/2012

I had a lot of micro bubbles which I learned is from the pump "cavitating". Its sucks harder then the inlet can keep up. I turned down my output valves and all is well.

I have found these pumps to be quiet, long lasting and about as efficient as any others.

Using this for a while now for a return pump. Not one issue. Easy to clean. Runs great and fairly quiet. In addition it runs very cool. Definitely recommend.
