Great pump if you're not using a controller By jeremy on 8/27/2012

Circulation pump - pros- this thing creates a ton of flow, I was really impressed with the current this pump makes.
Cons- if you are using his pump with a controller it can be quite noisy when starting or if the power goes out when it comes back on its noisy.
Power head - pros- as a power head this pump performs as expected, my pump pulls double duty mixing small batches of saltwater and as a circulation pump with no problems.
Cons-none so far
Utility pump- haven't used this as a utility/ return pump yet. I can imagine it would work ok in an application with minimal head height where not a lot of flow is needed. Maybe in an ATO setup...
Nice reliable pump By kenny on 8/25/2012

Purchased a Maxi Jet 1200 to run my dual BRS reactor. It works well with the reactors. It seems to be very reliable and is priced just right. It can be a bit noisy, but mine is in my sump area so the noise is not an issue....

Wish I had read more reviews on this power head, because it's complete trash.
I can hear this thing running from two rooms away. Sounds like plastic machine gun

I got this for the Dual BRS GFO and Carbon Reactor.
This pump is the loudest thing in my 90gal system. I would not recommend it. It noise and vibration from this pump is so noise that I have a hard time telling if anything else is on. I can hear it over the TV.
I would not recommend it for anyone.
Low Price Pump For General Use By Lorenzo on 6/7/2012

I own three of these pumps and use them for my tank maintenance to transfer water between containers and ultimately to fill my aquarium. I have not had a problem with them with noise or failure. I've had mine for 4 months. I also like the extras you get for using them as water pump, aerator or circulator.

Good Pump for the Price By Christopher on 5/18/2012

For the budgeted reefer, this pump is about as versatile as the come, I've used them as power heads and as pumps for reactors having success with both.

Purchased this a year ago with my BRS 2 part reactor and it has been working like a champ. Never an issue so far!
