This is a very simply and effective controller for the price. It gets the job done!
Wish I'd saved the money By MC on 12/29/2014

I bought this unit with a pair of nano 425 pumps. The controller has been working fine fore ~4 months now, and seems to be well built.
My issues are 1) You get either synch or switch and a period. This was my fault for not reading more about it before ordering, but for the price I expected a little more. 2) My unit has very loud relays in it. The pumps themselves are very noisy switching on/off, but the smartwave also makes a loud "clunk" when it switches a pump on. 3) The power leads are very inconvenient. It would be a huge improvement if the two pump leads were just regular receptacles on the bottom of the unit. As is the leads are stiff and a bit of a pain if you want to plug in a power strip instead of just a powerhead.
Looking back on it I wish I'd just bucked up for a vortech or some other DC pump with variable speed.
Good Beginners Wavemaker By Chris on 7/22/2014

I have some loud clicking when the larger hydor pumps initiate. Not an issue with the wavemaker (this product) itself, but the inexpensive pump. This product does what it says it'll do. I've been using it for about 10 months now with no issues. I have it runner a couple of hydor pumps in my 70 gallon basement sump where the loud clicking isn't an issue for me.

How do I rate a product that works but not with products from the same company. The controller does it's job, but the koralia nano powerheads start in reverse 80% of the time. Why release a product that doesn't work with what you sell.....

Extremely easy to use and achieved the wave-like motion I wanted.
great switch By Michael on 2/1/2014

Profuct works as advertised. I wish it had a RANDOM setting that would not make it so rhythmic. The product seems well built and does what its supposed to

I am using this to control two 600 gph powerbeads and it's working great to add current to my 75 gallon reef tank. Simple to set up and offers several options.

Just plug pumps into it and plug in and ready to go . I think easiest wavemaker to use.
Hydor Smartwave Controller By Doel on 4/25/2013
Doel wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I had it & it worked fine for about two months and now one side runs constant so much for random flow. Save your money & get a better controller, you get what you pay for, & I didn't get much LOL.
