These pumps are awesome. Love the wireless communication with my Radions. The flexibility to make these pumps do exactly what you need is unprecedented. Plus they look great doing it. Little pricey, but a must have for every reef junkey.

What can I say about this powerhead that hasn't already been said. It's an excellent product that works. The cost is high, but I replaced 4 other powerheads with it and I am getting much better flow.
The best purchase I have made for my tank By Aaron on 1/12/2015
Aaron would recommend this product to a friend
This pump is outstanding. I no longer have any algae growth in my main display. All of the detritus is swept up by it's variable speeds and ends up where it belongs, in my sump/ skimmer.
No other pump even remotely compares.
As far as the noise, I can only hear it when it goes above 75%, and it's more of a gentle whur. My overflow is much louder so it does not bother me.
The "EGG McMUFFIN" of pumps! By SKIDOG on 1/12/2015
SKIDOG would recommend this product to a friend
Quickly. They are AWESOME. You see those beautiful tanks on the internet. This is ALOT of their success. My tank went from ""nice" to "INCREDIBLE" after 12 hours of running 2 MP40s. I have a 90gal. I think ECOTECH MARINE shouldn't charge as much for them is the ONLY reason I put 4 stars for value. Don't get me wrong, they are still worth EVERY PENNY! If you have any doubts listen, I held off for quite awhile but now I KNOW I should have PULLED the TRIGGER on this purchase along time ago! 5 STARS PRODUCT!
spendy but the best always is By nathan on 1/12/2015
nathan would recommend this product to a friend
1st this pump is to much 400 would be much better (which is why i gave it a 4 in value) with that said i still bought 2 with battery back up and absolutely will never buy anything else. you can do so much with this pump, and the peace of mind you get if the power goes out is very nice.i have heard of a few people complain about the noise but i must say it isn't that bad, don't get me wrong they are far from silent but what do you expect the motor is on the outside of the tank
Yikes By Mike on 1/12/2015
Mike would recommend this product to a friend
Even though this wireless pump is not wireless (except apparently with one exception that's useless unless you have more than one), is kind of noisy at its highest settings, and is obviously expensive, I love it. I have never seen a product have such a pronounced effect on livestock in the tank. Even the freaking fish are enjoying the "reef crest" flow mode, and the elegance in the middle of my tank has expanded impressively within a few hours. It's a snap to install and use. Looks like I can remove the other clunky powerheads I was using and eliminate the clutter without any problem. And while I can hear it whirring at the higher flow rates, it does not bother me at all. I think the MP40 is a better choice for a 75 reef compared to a single MP10. Even at full blast in reef crest mode, it's not overpowering. I have it dialed back to about 70% and that seems to do the trick.
AMAZING PUMPS By William on 1/12/2015
William would recommend this product to a friend
These pumps are by far the most amazing pump on the market. The ability to adjust the flow and the variety of flow programs is outstanding. They are well worth every penny you spend for them. They are well styled and do not take up a lot of space inside the tank. I give my highest reccomendation for these pumps.
awesome By andrew on 1/12/2015

The pump is well made and makes the tank look great. it moves so much water around in my 75g.
Pretty Good but By john on 1/12/2015
john would recommend this product to a friend
The unit gets out of balance and then noisy. In my opinion after using this and tunze top unit the taam Polario is way better if you have a large tank. The water is pushed everywhere and no noise at the top of a center overflow it is hardly seen.
Only 170.00 ! But it is a large soda can size so under 150 gallon mabe too big.
cutting edge, this is the frontier of pump technology By joshua on 1/12/2015
joshua would recommend this product to a friend
With its endless features and unmistakable performance, this pump is by far the best thing on the market.... So I bought TWO!! Although one can be run on a system, I'd recommend getting at least two, one at each end to tak full advantage that the programmed modes have to offer. The sleek look of only the wetside being exposed in the tank is great, no bulk or wires in your display, and the ingenious power transfer through the glass is nothing short of a breakthrough. A+ Ecotech!

Powerful, Programable and Pricey By Geoffrey on 1/12/2015
Geoffrey would recommend this product to a friend
I use the MP40w and two MP10w VorTech's in my 90 gallon reef tank. I can get the water flowing anyway I want. I prefer the tidal surge mode on two pumps and a constant fast mode on the MP10w positioned at the bottom of my tank. I have owned them for a year without any issues.
Great pumps, but no consensus on which pump combinations to buy By Laura on 1/12/2015
Laura would recommend this product to a friend
I bought 2 mp40s & an mp 10 for my 95 gallon build (per Vortech rep recommendation), a nd had to return 1 mp40. I would have had to run all pumps at 25% to prevent everything from blowing all over the place! Still, great pumps.
good product but expensive By Benjamin on 1/12/2015

I bought 2 of these pumps 1 year ago and had not any problems. They are a bit noisy, and also have many features such as wave maker, feed mode, which offset the slight noise they produce.
A Great addition to your investment By Micah on 1/12/2015
Micah would recommend this product to a friend
THIS IS A GREAT POWER-HEAD like its advertised small footprint fully controllable great flow and under flow little to no noise ect... I like the fact that it can be sync with radion led fixtures and an option of a backup battery in case of power fails. My only gripe is the cost, but I am a firm believer of you get what you pay for, so worth the investment...
highly recomend By Jeremy on 1/12/2015

I love this thing wish i had money for another one. I have it in a 120 gal with 2 other small power heads and if i run it over 50% i have a sand storm, It moves alot of water. highly recomend but i think they are overpriced but they run excellent.
Worht It By Jeffrey on 1/12/2015

All in all this is a very nice piece of equipment to invest in. Plenty of movement when its not on full power. An it looks so much cleaner in the tank the other poweheads
It does move water... By Matt on 1/12/2015
Matt would recommend this product to a friend
It does move water, but it's flimsy, inflexible and over-priced. Having the motor outside the tank is a gimmick IMO and just looks ugly on the outside of the tank and creates potential for the pump "wet side" to be knocked (torqued) off into your corals or rocks if the pump jams for any reason. Don't skimp on the sticky pads to hold the cord on the outside of the tank for the same reason.
This pump will flow an area about 2' x 3' depending on your rock and coral layout.
Need earmuffs By Justin on 1/12/2015
Justin wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
The flow is amazing but it comes at a huge price(the noise). The pump has been broken in and setup correctly but the noise is still unbearable. I will be returning the pump and getting a Tunze.
If noise is not a concern, this is the pump to get. I did noticed a difference in my tank within 2 days.

Great pump, actually FUN to use. With all the work we have to do for our tanks, it's nice to have a toy every once in awhile that is a joy to use. Can't wait to buy a second and have them work together

This is the best pump hands down. I was worried when I decided to buy it because I had heard that they were loud. I can tell you that mine is quiet!! Noticed a big difference in the polups on my acros the first 5 hours.

I have been impressed with the pair of MP40's that I purchased. Only down side is they can be tricky to configure. But, besides that, I have been pleased.
