I received the xr30 mount and was excited to get it on the tank. Installation is pretty straight forward. Paint is much more matte than anticipated, but it works. Each piece was a little scuffed, but not a deal breaker. What does bother me is the screw/knob to tighten the mount to the tank. There is only one lenth of screw included. EcoTech is attempting to satisfy a wide market, so they made the clamp work with rimmed tanks. This means if you are rimless, you will have 2-2.5 inches of shiny steel screw hanging out over your tank, clashing with the sleek black of everything else. Also, for the XR30, the only "cable management" provided is squeezing it between the mount and the mounting screw. Not nearly as polished looking as the xr15. The rotating mechanism on the mount takes a little bit of push to move and it would be nice if it had a hinge like the ones innovative marine was using to get them completely out of the way for cleaning.
