So much better than the cheap ones! By Casey on 8/29/2012

I've always ran the cheaper magnets and I aquired one of these with a tank I recently purchased and all I can say is wow. Not even on the same level with the others. It grabs/cleans way better than the rest, yes its a bit more pricey. But honestly, after using it, I dont think I could buy a cheap one again. Worth every penny.

Love this cleaner. Works great and it's fun to try and get it around corners. Makes cleaning the glass easy and fun.
Must Have! By McKay on 8/10/2012

I would consider this a "must have" item for anyone who takes this hobby seriously. Makes light work keeping your glass sparkling clean. Only heads up... be careful around the gravel line - especially if you have fine sand/gravel. These magnets are extremely powerful, and if anything gets caught in the pad it's very likely to scratch your glass. I usually use this to a half inch or so above the gravel line and use a kent scraper for anything below that.
Just about worthless By Nathan on 8/3/2012

I really wanted to like this magnet. It's outer wood shell is stylish and it floats. The problem is for my tank it's just too powerful. I have a 55g glass and the magnet skips around like a 1950's record player. There is no way to get it to slide across the surface of the glass.
I've tried going up, down, fast, slow, etc. It just skips. I'm assuming that although it's listed for my thickness glass, that it's just to powerful. Oh, and keep your fingers out of the way of this thing. It looks like it could do some damage if you got your fingers caught in between the two magenets slamming shut.
Now I'm out ~$50 and don't have a functional magnet.

Great for glass By David on 7/12/2012

Great product with extremely strong magnets that enable you to remove even the crusty stuff with just a few passes. I use it on 1/2 inch starphire and it works like a charm.
I would be hesitant to use on acrylic however. One sand granule or other substance harder than acrylic and you just turned your tank into a scratched up mess.

I use 2 of these on my tanks the magnet is super strong and cleans fantastic. I have used cheaper brands and they were ok. I tried one of these and will never go back to the cheaper magnet cleaners.

I have had other brands in the past. This works fast and if you ever wear it out you can replace the pads. Buy once and pay a bit more but in the long run you come out on top
Excellent performance, but pricey By gbr_huskers on 6/29/2012

This cleaner works like a charm and is an excellent upgrade to the scrubber I previously used. I have to admit, however, that it costs more than it should. The magnets are super strong and it cleaned both sides of the glass to a sparkling clear finish. Hard to say that the results justify the price, so value was rated medium for me. I don't regret the purchase.

This is the best mag cleaner I have encountered..magnets are strong which means only one pass is needed to clean the algae off the side of your tank
