Fantastic Powerhead! By Pat on 12/2/12

This thing rocks! I replaced 2 internal Hydor Evo's and it is so much less noticable in my tank. It does make a very slight hum but, to me it's jsut white noise and not irritating at all. Being able to control this thing makes it worth every penny.
ECOTECH IS THE APPLE OF THIS INDUSTRY By Kevin on 12/2/12

This is an easy five star rating. I truly believe these pumps are peerless and the only negative is that because I've had such a great experience with this product, it's made me want MORE of their products.
Good performance but lousy(eco tech) cust. service after warranty is up... By doug griffith on 11/25/12

My mp 10's dry side went bad after only 16 months. I sent it in only to have to pay $93 (w/shipping) to get it fixed.... So as of today I have spent approx $320 on a pump that may or may not last another 16 months. Oh yeah, they charged my credit card before getting my final permission on the amount once they found out what was wrong with it... real professional:(
I would have expected a pump that costs over $200 to last at least 3 years before any real issues and would have hoped the company would have backed it up since it was only 4 months(at most) past warranty, but I guess I was expecting too much.
Good performance, bad reliability. By Dougers31 on 11/19/12

I bought this pump with to hopes of it adding some nice wave acftion to my tank, which it did. Only problem is that after 16 months of use, most of it at only 60% power, the dry side failed. I emailed eco Tech and they said I needed to ship it back to them which I did. They also said it could cost upwards of $80 to fix, which it did, plus I had to pay for shipping, so now I paid over $90 to fix a pump that I already paid $230 for.... not happy about this at all. I would think with it only being 4 months past warranty they would be a little more reasonable since it probably only needed new bearings... which are apparently not super high quality. I have heard from some other folks on our local forum who have had a similar experience. So basically it's a great pump if money is no object otherwise its much less then what I expected for a $230 pump.
Love it, now I just need one more! By Jeremy on 10/23/12

I ran this for about a month and the wet side broke, I called ecotech and they immediately sent me another with a prepaid box to send the broke one back. Customer service is awesome. Also my pump was making a slight vibration noise but this was due to not being properly aligned, while it was running I slightly nudged it left, right, up and down until it quite and it's been great ever since. Can't wait to get another one. I think I will go with the wireless one next time and then upgrade this one so they can work together. I have it on a 75 mixed reef.
Nice Pump By Justin on 9/23/12

I was a bit skeptical when I was told I ought to lay out this kind of cash on a powerhead, but I am sold. I have been using them for a few months now, and they are great products. I have a rimless tank, and really like that I maintain the minimalist look of the tank by keeping the majority of the powerhead on the outside of the glass.
The controller is a bit difficult to program/use, but the instruction manual is not too difficult to follow.
2 of these in my 57 gal tank is almost overkill. These pumps are very powerful - in fact from independent tests out there on the interwebz, they are actually more powerful than advertised.
I would definitely recommend if you have a bit of extra cash to outlay on your reef tank for some very pro gear.
Far Louder than acceptable By Mike on 9/10/12
Mike wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I understand that the motor is outside the water, however the reality is that this pump is bar far louder than everything else on my system combined. I sent the pump to EcoTech and they would only say that it's "within their tolerancees."
I had no way to test the noise level before purchase so I knew I was taking a risk. I fully regret buying the pump based on the high level of noise. I'll sell the pump to someone who has a high tolerance for noise and try something different.
very good By Yutong on 9/6/12

It is a very good product, much better than my previous one.
Fantastic but at a steep price By Brigwol on 7/19/12

The different wave modes are what got me to buy one for my 55 build. I haven't ran it over 50% and have no flow issues what so ever. The price and lack of promotions are the only disappointing thing about this power head.
It is tiny... By Matt on 7/4/12
Matt would recommend this product to a friend
It is tiny (*really* small), but flimsy and overpriced. I had to replace one wet side because a cerith climbed in during a power outage and when the power came on one of the blade sheared off on his shell! (This of course caused the wet side to become a projectile into the corals below.) It's hard to beat the package size if you really need something this small, but be prepared for ongoing costs.

This company stands behind its products By Robert on 5/23/12
Robert would recommend this product to a friend
The first mp10 I received worked for about 5 min, and then stopped, after troubleshooting, got in touch with Ecotech, and they promptly sent out a replacement, no questions asked, great customer support. The new pump worked great and I'm happy with it in my 40 breeder sps mix reef. These guys stand behind their products . If you buy, no worries!
