Buy it. Seriously. By fissy guy on 10/17/12

I bought this pump (the 750 model) in March of this year. I was worried due to the cheap price that I would get cheap quality out of it. ...let me tell you, you can take it apart fully (which I have done several times for cleaning and inspecting, as I do with everything else in the tank), and it is still performing now almost 8 months later with just the same power it did on day one, and hasn't given out on me once. If it ever died, I would buy another in a heart beat.
Bottom line--- IT LASTS, and IT WORKS VERY WELL.
Over 3 years and still going By amber on 10/17/12

I bought 2 of these when I set up my first tank. Since then I have tried adding different brands over the years when I wanted extra flow but they all died or had issues while my original Koralias are still kicking with zero issues ever.
I take them out and bang them in the sink to remove bulid up and while I know I shouldn't, still they keep on blowing. They are silent and dont run hot which makes them perfect products.

Easy to install with good flow. I bought two to push water around my rock. Strong enough for LPS corals and not harsh on the fish.
Don't waste your money on suction cup pumps. By turtleghandi on 10/7/12

I have both the 550 and the 1050 pumps. I got them to replace some cheap suction cup pumps that kept falling down. Both are working great. They have stayed right were I put them (thanks to the included magnet) and I don't detect any stray voltage in the tank. The packaging (on Hydor's part) could be a little better. The parts were just sort of rolling around in the boxes. Its not really a problem since none of them appeared to be damaged, but it makes them seem cheap and I could see how it might result in some damage during shipping.

Satisfactory for small tank By MJ's Custom Aquarium Water on 9/21/12

Pro's - magnet is awesome, it is going nowhere. Unit is very quiet, I don't notice it turning on and off. The quality of the build should last.
Con - I have a 550 and even in a 34 gallon tank it is weak. I have a much smaller one that generates more current. A little unimpressed with it's power.

I have two of these, one on each side toward the rear of the tank and they keep good flow throughout the tank. I supplement them with two nano powerheads on the sides toward the front of the tank. Corals are thriving and growing well.

Good for the price, but there is a catch By Joshua on 9/3/12
Joshua would recommend this product to a friend
I currently have 3 Evolutions, 2 of them work perfect and the other has to be "bump" started. The price is right compared to the next best thing, the Vortech. You can buy 10 of these for the price of 1 of those, so for the hobbyist, this is the way to go.
