So far so good By Mascis on 3/30/13

I don't have a controller, so these make it easy to check my temp on an ongoing basis. It's not glass, so there's no worry of explosions. And a small alarm sounds at a drastic temp change. like when the probe came out of the tank accidentally one day.

I have a couple of the larger units in my 57 gallon reef, and they do great at maintaining temperature. Unfortunately, after trying 2 different units, the small 50W unit is not large enough to maintain temperature in my nano tank. It will only raise the temperature by about 4 degrees in a 12 gallon tank.
The Best By Ryan on 3/21/13

This is by far the best heater I have purchased. I have had expensive heaters and cheap heaters, but this heater does it for me. It's easy to operate, the built in alarm for temps too high or too low is a life saver (literally for your fish) and it's not glass so I don't have to worry about it breaking in my tank or sump. I have one in each of my fish tanks and have gotten a few friends to buy them too!
Great Heaters By Gary on 3/19/13

I have both a 150w and 100w. Both have been working great for 6 months now. I have been using a temp probe and they are as accurate as the claim. The built in remote temp sensor cord could be longer.
Love the digital control By Ray on 3/15/13

I have this in my 29 BioCube and it works great. I love the easy to read digital control. It's easy to tell if the heater is on or off and what temp the tank is at. I'm going to get another one for my water changes.

Titanium heater that is easy to setup with a nice digital read out & controller that sits outside of the tank. Worried about reading your heater correctly? Not a problem with this heater, which also doubles as a temperature gauge. I have 2 x 200 watt in my 75 gallon + 30 gallon sump and they work perfectly.

This heater keeps my tank's temperature very stable. The LED is excellent for adjusting and monitoring temp.
Works fine By Ross on 1/5/13

Purchased this a few months ago. Have used it for a few different things, for starters I used it to maintain an even 80 degrees F in a Rubbermaid tub I was curing rock in. Had no issues and kept the water exactly where I wanted it. I later removed the heater and rinsed it off and put it in the main tank. The thermostat portion of this heater is on its own wire so you can place it somewhere reasonably far away from the heater itself.
I think this is a benefit because you can use it in a different flow area to make sure the heat is being distributed around your tank. The digital read out is also a nice touch, I prefer it to the older spin dials I've used in the past.
Great heater for the price By Chad on 12/16/12

After my previous heater couldn't keep my tank at a desirable temp i decided to give this a try and got my 150g with 50g refugium to 79 degrees within a few hours and has stayed there for the past few days so far I'm very pleased

Don't buy this By Zach on 11/26/12
Zach wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
This heater sat on my seahorse tank for one whole year. I keep my tank at a low temp, so it never turned on, but I kept it on there just in case my tank happened to get under 72 degrees one day. One day I took it out and put it inside of a smaller tank to test to make sure it was working. After acclimating it and turning it on, much to my surprise, I dipped my hand in the warm water only to be electrocuted. Thank god this terrible item never turned on inside of my seahorse tank, otherwise I'd have some floating fish. Don't get this heater.

I bought the 300, and Im happy with it so far. It does have an LED controller which is nice. It has been keeping my temp where I want it. I wish they had a bigger heater since my tank is a 120 gallon not including the sump. But this seems to be doing the job.
Quality issues By KC on 11/11/12

This heater may look nice but there are serious quality flaws within. I had ordered this and the first one was defective. The second replacement only lasted one year and won't heat anymore. This heater works great when it does but you just don't know how quickly it goes...

Super accurate and the digital readout is much nicer than the old dial-set heaters. By Zak on 9/13/12

I bought the 150w version for my 40 breeder and it's been working perfectly thus far. Love the digital readout, made me feel much more confident when setting my temperature in comparison to the dial-set heaters I've used in the past where you just sort of guess and check.

Heater stuck on and cooked my tank By btacker on 4/24/12

I have had the heater for 6 months. Woke up this morning and my temp was running 89 degrees. The heater is set on 78 degrees. Worst part is that the light showing that the heater is heating the tank is OFF!
Product shoudl be banned By Devin on 4/12/12
Devin wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
What is an acceptable failure rate for a heater? Especially when the failure is water getting into the heater's electronics and creating an electric current in your tank? Is 1 per 100 acceptable risk? Unbelievable! I bought two of these 6 days ago to cook dry rock and came home this evening to check on the tub, put my hand in the water and was shocked. Water was in teh electronics. This heater had nothing done to it than taken out of the box, put directly into the water, appropriately hung and did not move until this happened. BEWARE!!! lucky I didn't use this unit in my tank and only to cook rock. Will NEVER Use this product when there is anything to risk.
Compact heater By Kerric on 4/2/12
Kerric would recommend this product to a friend
I use one of these hooked up to my Apex Jr. controller. The controller turns the heater on and off (I keep the heater temp controller turned all the way up) and it works well. Before I had the reef controller connected however the heaters controller was in use and worked well but that was only for about a month. This heater (the 100w model) is VERY compact and sits in the return chamber of my sump. I am pleased with it so far.
