  • Both 300 W models failed very quickly By on 6/1/2017

    I bought 2 300w units for my sump. The first one quit after two months. The second one failed yesterday after 3 months. Don't buy these heaters.
  • Update! By on 12/28/2016

    I had bought 2 of the 300w units and the first one failed after 2 months. I swapped in the spare and it quite after 3 weeks. Both had the same issue where it was showing 70F (set at 76F) and was trying to heat but the element was not getting hot. I had the titanium version ( which lasted 5yrs and was much better. I don't know if this was a bad batch of heaters but I won't trust them again. BRS was great at getting replacements to me.
  • Easy to set... but reliable? By on 12/28/2016

    I bought 2 (1 as a spare) of the 300w units for my 90g tank. For about 2 months it held the temp dead on. During a feeding I noticed the unit showing only 70F and confirmed with the thermometer. It looks like the element failed. Swapped in the spare and was good to go. BRS took care of the warranty which was great as the warranty states it is only valid if sold and used in the USA and I'm in Canada. I had the stainless steel version which lasted 5yrs and is a much better unit IMHO.
  • Quit working after 3 weeks By on 3/31/2016

    Worked good for 3 weeks,easy to set temp and the led numbers are easy to read.But because of quality I can not recommend it.
  • Good For the price By on 3/7/2016

    Nice heater and a good value. It is very easy to set the temperature. I recommend getting 2 at half the wattage required or 3 at 1/3 the wattage is even better. All heaters will fail at some point don't take the chance with a single heater no matter what brand. I also recommend a controller backup to warn you of a problem.
  • Nice Heater By on 7/28/2015

    I love how easy it is to set it and forget it. Love the digital temp display too. Price is great. I did have one fail after about 3 months but that was years ago. I have owned 3 and also a different model from the same company. Only that one had problems.
  • great heater By on 2/2/2015

    have had no problems. seems accurate and a lot better than my older heater. i have no complaints.
  • Great heater for the price By on 4/29/2014

    Does the job for prepping water temp for water changes. I like the external temp probe to easily tell me when my water is ready. I do take some of the advise from users above and would hate to use a cheap heater on my main system so I keep a Fluval E heater on main. Great bang for the buck Finnex.
  • Cheap but works By on 3/7/2014

    What can you expect for the low price. It works, so no complains here. It's been holding the temperature steady on my 30 gallon.
  • QUIT AFTER 2 MONTHS By on 1/4/2014

    I started using the 300 in the sump of my 100 gallon system just over 2 months ago and discovered that it has quit working already. With the amount of money and attachment I have invested in livestock I can't afford to have a heater quit working on me like this.
