Better than I expected! By Randy on 1/12/2015

My biggest concern before purchasing and running was if it was going to move enough water in the hard to get to places, especially for the price and the fact that you can't aim them, but with the undertow it creates there are no problems. I admit, I am cycling and haven't seen how it performs with corals, but after watching movement of bubbles and food (generating ammonia) I have no worries. If these are in your price range I don't think you can really go wrong. Oh! And much more silent than I have read concerns about too.
bad experience By coral junkie on 1/12/2015

I ordered a mp40 tried to hook it up and they sent me the wrong power supply. So now I have to wait another week for echo tech to send the right power supply. I think they should test their products before sending it out
Great pump ... By Christopher on 1/12/2015

This is a great pump and well worth the cost . Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because programming it for the first time is a pain and there's no reason for the price they can add a phone application or drop down display on the controller to make programming simpler.

This is the third Vortech I own. There's nothing bad I can say about it. It works as it is advertised. I highly recommend it.
powerful and sleek powerhead By Paul on 1/12/2015

Although a bit pricey I really like this power head. Set up was easy and direction were good to follow. I'm still not 100% sure on the mode programing and night mode but will be spending more time getting that programmed. One thing would be good since I have the Radions would be having the similar software to program via computer. I love the variable speed adjustment. The flow definitely stirred up the debris very nice and was easily sucked up into the over flows of my 220g
Great pump but... By Jason on 1/12/2015
Jason would recommend this product to a friend
This is a great pump, I purchased this after being advised by the folks at Ecotech Marine. It is awesome but need two to keep from blowing corals to death on one side to adequate flow in the opposing side of the tank. I have a 90 gallon tank.
For low profile lover's, a MUST! By Randy on 1/12/2015

These rank at the top of my list for best purchases for my tank. Those of us who are sticklers for neat and orderly displays, the Ecotech pumps provide for the cleanest look that won't detract from your display tank!
I originally bought two MP10wES for my 125 gal reef tank but after reviewing recommended flow rates for most LPS/SPS corals in my tank size, I opted for the MP40wES. I'm very glad I did! My corals love the flow! BRS customer service was top notch and expedient at returning and sending out my new pumps. If you are on the fence about these, BUY THEM!

Hello, fellow reefers
I have been in the hobby for two years with a lot of up and down,
Just like everyone new to the hobby. When i saw the price tag for this pump. I was shocked "465 for a pump that is even more expensive than an ipad mini. But after buying this pump . Its worth every dollar.
Ask any true reefer who has alot of the latest and greatest equipment.

This is a great product...it is expensive but it is an important part of any reef tank. The programming it not easy....the buttons don't really respond to touch very well ...push and hold....and be patient, processor is a little slow. It would be really nice to have software to program and upload to the controller. Really tough to program two or more up under your tank.
Great product By chefbill on 1/12/2015

This is the second one that I have purchased. I like the programing options and ease of use. The only down side is that you cant aim them in different directions to change flow patterns without moving the entire unit.

as good as they claim. with so many options and variable speeds it is not hard to imagine why this is touted as the best in power heads. Although I wish it were a little less pricey, you do get what you pay for, and this is worth it.
