I've been very pleased with this heater it keeps my daughter's 37 gallon tank within about 1/2 Degree F. It's only a couple months old so how long it will last is unknown. Compared to the previous heater that had 2+ degree flux throughout the day this one is much better. The unit is a bit bulky, but for the price you can't go wrong.

So far, so good for this heater. I like the rubber caps on the end of the heater that keep it from directly contacting the sump. I also like that they give a long wire to the sensor so you get reading from somewhere besides right next to the heater.
If the durability is good, I'll be ordering this product again.
Feel safe with this heater By Sean on 12/4/2014

Solid heater that has a nice and easy to read display. The only bad thing I can say about this product is that when you first set up your tank, this thing will beep until it reaches your threshold temperature setting.
I like that it comes with a probe which you can place a separate compartment from where your heater is located in your sump. Can't be a thermometer and heater all in one. Nice way to keep it simple and within budget.
Happy With It By Reality Blowz on 12/1/2014

Got tired of submersible glass heaters failing. Placed this one in my refugium with the temp probe next to my sump intake. My tank is now rock steady at 74 degrees. Has been 3 weeks so far.

SEEMS TO BE OFF BY A DEGREE, OTHERWISE VERY CONSISTENT HEAT AND THE CONTROLLER IS A AWESOME FEATURE. I WILL BE GETTING THESE FOR ALL OF MY TANKS EVENTUALLY!
Love this heater By Scott on 11/14/2014

It is compact and the remote temp prob can be placed away from the element so that the temp is more accurate. I like that it has bulbous ends which keeps the element off the sides or bottom of the tank. I have the 300w on my 90G display tank and a 150w on my 29 Biocube. Both mine are within +- 1F of the set temp and does not drop even in a room 10 degrees cooler than the tank.
Horrible By Barrett on 11/13/2014

The digital display only reads in Fahrenheit, and cannot be changed to Centigrade, rendering it practically useless unless you keep a conversion table handy.

I have used plenty of heaters but for price and dependability it stops here. It is off by a degree I have noticed and they could have used longer cords but that is the only thing I can complain about. I have multiple tanks and use this heater on all of them.A really great heater.

Using this as an in sup heater. Set it 1 degree higher than I want the temperature, and the thermometer in the tank shows the desired temperature.
Works just as expected! By Brooks on 6/30/2014

Got this to replace the "cheap" typical glass ones I have. It has a digital display which is much nicer than the others I had. Used the 300watt and controlling them through the Apex system

I bought two 100 watt with controllers, one for my saltwater and one for my QT tank. They are working great!
Nice Heater for tight spaces By Ryan on 4/14/2014

I was surprised when I opened up this heater. If has a nice digital read out and allows for mounting above the sump. My only complaint with the product so far is that depending on how you have your sump arranged, routing the power cord behind the tank, it might not be long enough to reach the end. Otherwise, great little heaters.

Titanium tube is nice and small for the output compared to the average glass one.
The only complaints are:
Temp probe is a bit off, be sure to check it with a glass thermometer.
It would be nice if the low temperature alarm could be silenced, I used this to warm RODI a few times and it gets annoying.

I have had this 300w heater running for about a week now and it seems to be very accurate. I was skeptical about getting the digital control version because I have always used the analog controllers but I am very happy with it. I have used other brands but I highly recommend this heater.

I have to say its been so far. It's off by 1 degree but is holding consistent. Best heater I've found so far in this price range. I do wish manufactures would add some weight to the temp probe so it stays down if the suction cup comes off the grass. I zip tied the probe to my skimmer rack and that solved the problem.
great heater just a lil off on the temperature By turbotone on MR on 1/12/2014

i own every size of the heaters and use them for quarantine tanks, water make up tank, my 75 gallon mixed reef tank and planning on using the non controlled one on my 120 build being controlled with my apex.. 2 tips.. buy whats recommended for your tank or go smaller and buy 2 of them and placing one in your return and your input section ( being redundant) if one breaks you still have one running and if one breaks in the on position it will be hard for it to climb that high and hopefully giving you time to get to the problem… the second tip is compensate for the thermometer.. all the ones I've owned have been slightly off ,one by 2 degrees one by 3 degrees the other by 4 degrees.. so knowing this you can adjust the heater to shut off minus whatever the temp you want.. i aim for 77 degrees so my heaters are at 75,74 and 73… this might annoy a lot of people but to be honest none of these heaters I've ever owned that had to be dialed in on top of them were correct anyways… I've had to turn up or turn down the heaters to dial it in to my ideal temp anyways.. so at least you get a digital read out and the titanium heater that won't shatter on you..
Heater works great and is accurate By trailjammer on 1/10/2014

I bought this to replace my Fluval heater that went out. The heater is small and compact but puts out a lot of heat. I found it very accurate and reading the same temp my chiller reads which is the first heater that hasn't been off a few degrees. It never fluctuates more than 1 degree. The controller is easy to use and I haven't experience the loud beeping that everyone talks about so we'll see. I'd definitely recommend it but I'll have to see if it will last longer than 2 yrs. The temp probe is small and easy to hide in my nano tank. be careful when working in the tank. I almost burned myself by touching the heater by accident. I wish it came w/a fish guard because it can get pretty hot even in the water when it kicks on.

I have been using this heater to heat up my ro/di water in storage before water changes. I also have the 150 model heating my 40 breeder/ 20 sump set up. Both are great heaters. I would definitely continue to use these in the future.
