Well worth it By Crude on 6/17/2017Crude would recommend this product to a friendThis is well worth the 50 bucks. I upgraded both of my echo smart drivers with these. Yes they do what they claim and make your motors run A lot quieter. I would guess the advance circuitry that makes the motors are in quieter is also easier on them this lengthening the life of the motor.
Great upgrade! By Matthew on 4/28/2017Matthew would recommend this product to a friendI upgraded my MP10ES with this and the wireless chip at the same time. The difference in my 3 year old Vortech was night and day. I can really only hear it if its above about 60% power and even then its very quiet. The dry side also stays a little cooler to the touch now.
I Stand Corrected! By Ken on 4/8/2017Ken would recommend this product to a friendPlease disregard my previous one star review. Was able to have my issues address by Ecotech support and my problems were due to the wetside and not the new QD driver. Now that it has been resolved the noise reduction is definitely significant. I wouldn't say 90% but well worth the money.
Save Your Money By Ken on 4/3/2017Ken wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI purchased this to quiet down one of my MP10's as my tank is right next to my desk and during nutrient transport or gyre modes the noise drives me crazy. Once I switched over, the so advertised "90% reduction" in noise was more like 5% max. If it didn't cost so much to return ship (+ restocking fee) I would return this without question but now I'm stuck. Luckily I bought one first to see if it was worth it. Sorry Ecotech but this failed miserably.
Worth the investment By Chad on 10/20/2016Chad would recommend this product to a friendI picked up one of the older EcoSmart MP10Ws and at full speed it was pretty loud. Upon installing this driver it really made a difference in how loud it was.
One word of caution. This driver DOES NOT have the Wireless RF Module for EcoSmart Drivers.
If the old driver you are replacing has one you can use the one out of it but if you are trying to convert one that is not wireless capable It will cost you $45.00 from there website.
Replacing the module is as simple as unplugging it from the circuit board of the old driver and plugging it into the new board.
