Works, but noisier than they used to be By Edward on 1/28/13

As the title says, it moves as much water as it says it does, but it produces a humming sound that the older models didn't. On a budget they are great. Otherwise, may want to consider something else like a Cobalt or Eheim Compact.
Great pump for the price By Shirvon on 9/25/12

This is a great little pump, I use it with the propeller rotor for flow in my 20 gal and it sure keeps things moving.
I would not recommend it for a wave maker as it is a bit noisy on start up.

Great little pump. I use it for so many things (mix saltwater, backup, reactor...) It's not very exciting but works when you need it. Great price and very versatile. Nothing else I could ask for. Thanks BRS!
Good pump for the price By Louis on 8/16/12

As many others have said this pump can be loud but for the price it can't be beat. I use it as a replacement pump in my 14G biocube and love the flow it creates.
Low cost, good flow, but a little loud By Ron on 7/26/12

I got this to use with the reactor instead of the recommended 1200 as it draws about 1/2 the watts with only a little loss in flow. The flow is fine and the price is fair, however the pump is loud to me. It is louder than my skimmer skimmer pump - skimmer is a reef octopus. On the plus it connects right up with the BRS reactors.
incredible value for the price By Corbin on 3/29/12

These may not be the nicest powerheads, but on a budget these will add flow where you need it in a smaller tank. They do make some noise, and the motor is slightly large. Even so I purchased a second unit for my cichlid tank. There is just no arguing with the price.
Good Price By Dominic on 2/17/12

Good pump, moves the water nicely. It is just a bit noisier than I expected. All in all not a bad pump for the price.

I have a number of these connected to a natural wave outlet for 2 years. Makes great flow and have hold up well
So frustrating By Aaron on 9/7/11

For an affordable pump that is a versatile as this one, I guess I should keep my expectations low. However, I can not understand how MaxiJet got this one wrong. The housing disengages from the pump and its LOUD! If you're using this pump in a reactor where you have to restrict the flow, be prepared for a loud vibrating noise coming from underneath your cabinet. Louder than my skimmer, louder than my Mag9.
Great Reliable Pump By Joel on 9/5/11

I bought one of these to run my BRS single GFO reactor. Pump itself has worked great ever since I bought it. However, I ended up switching to a maxijet 1200 as over time I found that while the 900 worked well enough, I wasn't quite getting the flow I wanted from it, so if you are considering one for your reactor you may want to step up to the next pump as I did.
