I have this on my 65 gal, I have it set at 78, my tank will swing to 79 then to 76 in one day. Its hard to read the dial. Plus it has this two way dial up system that maybe I really did get. Im getting a reefkeeper, witch should fix this problem. I know a lot of people like this product, and mine maybe just a lemon, but I prob won't by this brand again

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.

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.
