Love these for what they do, but... By Brent on 8/16/2014

After learning about the importance of alignment, I managed to get one of two pumps running silently. Unfortunately, it seems no matter what I do the second pump vibrates, and somewhat loudly, too, when the running at about 40 percent. I have tried rotating the pump, the motor, moving the pump/motor to different locations, but to no avail. For now, the it's bearable, and as I said, I love these pumps, working to gather, doing what they do well.
Very controllable but a little loud By tarheel on 8/8/2014

This pump has great options/features but it is much louder than I was expecting.

Pricey but worth it By Charles on 6/23/2014

I wasn't sure if I was ready to spend the money for the upgrade to Eco Tech Vortech from my Hydor Evolution power heads. Well it's been 2 month now and I am glad I did. The corals growing at much faster rate than before.
The Best By MechEngineer on 5/22/2014

If you have the money, this is the best pump on the market. No wires in the display tank and eliminates heat transfer from the pump motor being outside of the tank. 4 out of 5 stars because as others reviews have noted there is a slight noise when you go above ~50% power. I run two on my 90 gal seahorse tank on the first or second settings so this doesn't bother me.
Pretty good pump By Chris on 5/6/2014

I was pretty skeptic to buy this pump at first because of the price, but if you have the budget to buy this then I think it's worth it. The customization on this pump is insane with the various settings to use on it. It does make a little bit of noise when ramping up to higher percentages but it's nothing that really bothers me personally when sitting 4 feet away while watching TV. I only run mine at 40% on a 29g tank so I imagine if it is being run at 100% it might make a bit more noise. If you have the money in your budget and want a pump that you can really customize to your liking, this is the pump for you.
There is a reason why its #1 By Daniel on 5/4/2014

I switched to the MP10Wes after using marineland 800's. Number one reason I like it is my fish love it, and my LTA came out of its crevice and now peacocks around my tank. It mentions the feed mode which is great, but the sleep mode, which isn't mentioned, makes my system just a little bit easier by automatically remembering the time I put it on...by itself. I ordered an Apex but I won't be in a rush to get the WXM module because I don't see a need for it right away until I get multiple MP10's.
Great wavemaker! By Wayne on 4/30/2014

I have a 30 gal system, and the mp10W is the perfect size for it. It makes a great wave, moves water like a champ! It comes with a little sponge sleeve to protect fish from getting chopped up if they're curious. I have a lawnmower blenny that never has had any trouble with it, even though I've seen the blenny INSIDE the head when I had it turned off. It's nice having the small one with the Wireless option, because if I want to upgrade in the future, I can simply buy another one, and mount it to the other side of the tank.
Louder than i expected By JoeSuff on 4/30/2014

I was able to purchase one of these at a great price slightly used on C~glist from a guy shutting down his frag tanks. I was excited 'cause i was going to use it with a MP40w on a 120 tank and place it on the back glass behind the rock. Unfortunately when i added it to the tank i could hear the motor frequency wind out as i played with the different settings. I never was able to hear it in the in store display. But due to all the white noise in a store it never bothered me like it did in my living room. I plumed my sump to my basement just so i wouldn't have to listen to my tank. In the end I was able to exchange it for credit on a Calc reactor from the same person i purchased it from. My solution was a pair of Tunze 6055's they are almost dead silent.
Great little pump with many setting options By Sunny on 4/30/2014

I just bought an MP10w ES from bulk reef supply for my 65 gallon aquarium. I am in the process of converting my FOWLR to a Reef. At this point I only have two small fragments. I decided to go with the wireless option so I can add more in the future once I add more corals. The product came packaged very well. Installation was a breeze. For now I have it set on the random lagoon mode, yet to play around with other settings. They have a whole bunch of options on this little pump. The pump has been operating for a couple of days, seems to move a lot of water and is very silent. Overall I am very happy with the purchase. I preferred to spend once on a quality product rather than buy a pump first, then add a wave maker etc. I think the product is worth the money.
Best Powerhead you can buy By Tristan on 4/30/2014

Ive had my mp10w es in my tank for a month now, and i have never been happier with any other piece of equipment. Excellent build quality, excellent performance, ultimate controllability. Powerful yet broad flow, many modes to create whatever flow pattern you could imagine.
Made me buy a second one By Richard on 4/30/2014

I think the is pump is amazing! After setting it up and adjusting the wet and dry sides and let it run in everything went smooth as could be. I just bought another one on Saturday so I can run them together. I have seen videos of them running in Sync and Anti sync and I can't wait. If you have the money to burn I would definitely put this at the top of the list.
