I like using these heaters as they are reliable. I have had a 300 Watt heater for almost 5 years now. Just use it in winter time but it has been very effective and reliable. Price here is about $10 less than at my LFS.

Had been keeping my tank right where I want it. I have two forms of monitoring my temp to make sure is doing what it's supposed to and so far so good.

Bought a unit 4 months ago. The power light was on but it was not heating my tank. Went to the Jager website and had to write two complaints before i heard back a week later. They gave me a list of questions and trouble shooting to go through. I answered all there questions and never heard back from them. I Will never buy another of there products

After 6 months of tank temps fluctuating + or - ten degrees, it totally failed. Woke up this morning to a 66 degree tank.

I've owned this brand and I've never had a problem with one, Nice size and easy to read temperature dial. Seems to be accurate too.
Just wish it would've been a smidgen smaller to fit in my skimmer.

50W heater fit perfectly in my Nuvo 8 and it works wonderfully. I set it and forget it. Looks like great quality and not the cheap glass I have gotten in the past.
Well built By Stickley on 10/1/13

Jager heaters have a good reputation. When you hold one in your hand, you get an inkling of why--they are heavier than most glass-tube heaters and clearly well made. Of course the real "guts" are inside the tube and the things you want (reliable thermostat, even heat production, etc.) aren't something you evaluate by eye. I keep buying them because they haven't disappointed me on any of those fronts.
That said, my next heater purchase will be a TI heating element with a separate controller. I don't want to worry about the glass breaking or having the heating coil in the same tube as the electronics which will eventually degrade the latter.
So... Best of the old-style heaters? Yes, IMHO. Best heater overall? Probably not anymore.

This is a great heater. They are larger than the cheap ones you find at the chain pet store. Make sure the size you are buying will fix in sump/tank. I bought the 300watt and it wouldn't fit in my sump but the 200 watt works great.
I have two thermometers and this heater keeps my water at the perfect temp with no measurable temp swings from when it is on and off. This is important for the health of your corals and fish.

Have always used these heaters in my 10 years experience in the hobby.
The heaters do need to be calibrated, but once they are set, they are very accurate.

I bought one of these to go in the back of my Innovative Marine Nuvo 24 and I can't go on about how happy I am with it. Perfectly calibrated out of the box and the tank temperature is pegged at 79 all day long. This is how a heater should work. Don't even bother buying a different brand.

Needed two heaters for safety sake verses one big one and these work well for me, the jager name still means strong

I've used these for the past 15 years on both salt and freshwater tanks and I have yet to have a problem with one. I highly recommend these as they are accurate and a good value.
awesome heater By bruce on 4/13/13
bruce would recommend this product to a friend
I did a ton of research on heaters and everyone seemed to recommend the jager heaters. I bought 2 75w for a 160 tank and sump. I guess I wasn't paying attention and when I got the heaters, it said 1 was good for a 26 gallon tank. I needed a heater for by 45 gallon Brute water storage, so I threw 1 in it. It had the water heated in no time. The storage is in the basement and the ambient air is probably 63. That is pretty impressive. I will probably buy one more larger heater for the tank and keep the extra 75w in the tank as well. BRS, I would suggest addiing the recommended tank size for each of the wattage.

I have six of the 200w Jager heaters and have never had one fail in three years. They are all hooked to my Ranco controller and work flawlessly.

Mercedes (Jager) Vs. Ford (Marineland, Fluval, Aqueon)
That should sum it up.
