Easily set the temp and forget about it. All the wires are long enough to give you plenty of elbow room for placing. Appears to be very well made.

Best titanium heater for the price. Easy to use digital temp control. Comes with separate heat sensor to give you a more accurate reading and can be placed apart from you heater to give you a more accurate reading of the temperature in other parts of your tank besides directly next to the heating element. Could use a longer length of cord for both the temp probe and the heater, but for the price I'm not going to complain too much.

I bought one 300w. This heater is wonderful and keeps the water at the desired temp. Buy one.

I bought this for my new 80 set up and its worked very well. Holds the temp at 80, without even a degree of fluctuating. Highly recommend :)

Best titanium heaters out there for the price. But in an ideal world, the temp alarm settings would be adjustable and the auto kill would be a separate sensor built into the tube, so as to prevent overheat in run-dry situations. A couple more inches for each cord would also be nice, but this is not a perfect world. :)

I have had great success with the 150 watt heater in my 40 gallon system. It keeps the temperature very consistent and the temperature probe and digital readout make it very easy to keep track of how well it is working.
Great heater By Heinz on 6/26/11

The heater is easy to set and adjust the temp so far it has been holding my tank around +-1 degree. It is extremely nice not having to remove the heater to adjust it. Others have said the cords are a bit short but 32 inches from control head to heater is perfect for my setup. I just wish that they would have put the power plug on the top of the controller so that the cord to the heat would come out of the bottom. Doing that would give some people a few extra inches but there again it depends on your setup

I previously owned Marineland Visi-Therm Heater for 1 of 3 of my tanks. I have Marineland Stealth Pro’s for the other 2. I have had limited luck with these heaters. When the Visi-Therm Heater went out, I lost my Philippine Yellow Tang, Swissguard Basslet, and Hi-Fin Goby, I decided it was time to change brands. I read the reviews on different heaters and then turned to BRS and I decided to give the Finnex 150W Heater with Digital Controller a try. I really like this heater. It does an excellent job with a much smaller footprint (~7 ¾” L vs. 13 ½” L) and uses 50 Watts less than the heater it replaced. Purchased on 2/8/2011 and plan on purchasing these as a replacement when the Stealth Pro's burn out.
worked great until I ran it dry By pico on 1/24/11

I have 3 50w and they all worked great with the exception of one which ran dry and stopped heating/leaked. I can't blame the heating element but did think it had an emergency off for those situations - buy but dont run dry.
Good Heater By Jake on 1/12/11

I have this heater in addition to the HPS line. This is by far the better of the two. The external controls allow for easy adjustment without getting wet.
The only change i wish this had was a way to silence the temperature alarm. I routinely use this heater to heat my RO/DI water before using it - if the temp of the water is below 65, there is a constant alarm with no way to turn off. Its not too bad in my garage, but if you have this in your house, you're going to get annoyed quickly.
Nice heater with temperature display By Christiaan on 1/11/11

Have been using on on my system for the last year it is a good heater with a nice temperature display on it. the only problem with it is that I am using a controller to control my temperature and every time the heater gets powered on there is a beep so if you are planning on using this heater with another control I would recommend the one with the analog control.
Excellent Heater! By Kyle on 12/13/10

This heater is wonderful!! Comes with its own temp probe and everything! Digital readout is bright and easy to read. Maintains the tank temp well. Needs a little longer lead out from the heater to the control box but other than that it has been wonderful!
