good flow By Andrew on 1/6/12

They are clean and quiet and move a great deal of water more diversly than my previous power head a maxi-jet 1200. The pivot ball construction allow for wide array of positions. Evo pumps are good and I am very pleased with the purchase , I look forward to using them in conjucntion with the smartwave wavemaker, my only concern, or would like to see explored is the design to move the power cord outside the tank like the vortech, the magnetic mount is great, but would have an even cleaner look if they could evolve the technology to an external wire configuration. It a great balance of flow enough to move the water but not too much to blow softies around

For the price its a good little pump that works best if it is run continuously. Shutting off for feeding times or water changes can be frustrating due to the pump often going into reverse. Shut it off and then back on and sometimes it corrects itself.

I used two of these side-by-side with a magnum 5 and an older Koralia 4. Produces more flow then the 4, and nearly a much as the 5, but is smaller then either of those. Quiet, and controllable with a wavemaker. Excellent pump and a fair price.
Hydor Koralia Evolution 1400 By pk on 11/20/11

This would be a great pump if the magnet shaft didn't split and swell up so much that it wouldn't turn anymore. This pump starts up sometimes, sometimes it doesn't and sometimes it starts in reverse. Outside of these things, it great!
great, but large By Mario on 11/17/11
Mario would recommend this product to a friend
After seeing many tanks with vortechs and tunze, this powerhead is relatively large, but it is perhaps the quietest pump i have owned. It also gives very good, wide flow, but if only Hydor is able to make it smaller somehow, it would be amazing. It also does not work well on a wave maker, as there is an annoying clicking sound.
Good Performance By Anthony on 11/1/11

I am using these on my 40g long frag tanks which are 48" long and they move the water nicely. As always the magnet holds perfect and they seem industructable for 7 months and counting. Very easy to take apart and clean. For frag tank flow or basic flow for any reef that you do not need control these are great powerheads. Overall a great value for ther money.

Bought this for my 50 gal reef tank. I have a deep sand bed and this pump is at the top of my tank and is still constantly making waves in the sand. Also Very quiet.
better than the 750 By Ryan on 10/12/11

I have both the 750 and the 1050. the 1050 is rock solid, even on a wave maker. it starts silent and remains that way. great pump.
get the 1050 By Ryan on 10/12/11
Ryan wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I have a 750 and a 1050, the 750 is louder on startup (makes a clunk noise) and sometimes starts in reverse. my 1050 is dead silent and never starts backwards. do yourself a favor, if you tank can handle it get the 1050gph
great for my purpose By austin on 10/7/11
austin would recommend this product to a friend
got this, will prolly order another one. i wanted a smaller powerhead to i can get different levels of flow in my 180. this one along with the magnum 7 seem to be enough, however, 1400 gph isnt as much as I thought it would be, but for a smaller level of flow in difficult areas, its size allows me to achieve these results
Was great for a while By Luke on 10/4/11
Luke wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I have bought many of the Evolution pumps by Hydor and they all did great for a while, but after a few months of owning them(I do clean them regularly) the 1400 and one of the 750's will sometimes not start up or start up in reverse. This is not good if you want to run them on a controller because it wont be on or not provide the right flow. If you just have them running all the time they are fine. I am changing to all VorTech pumps for now on...
Very happy with this product By Dan on 9/29/11

I got two of these for my 90 gal reef and couldn't be happier. For the money, they can't be beat. The ones I received are quiet, have great flow and look good in the tank. I would definitely buy these again.
