I purchased the 406 canister filter shortly after they were released. I have 3 405's and the improvement of the 406 over the 405 is dramatic. More powerful, less noise, simpler design and an improved priming system. Same configuration as a 405, with the weak points vastly improved. There are parts that wear out over time, but replacement parts are available. Mine has been running for 2 years with media replacement the only thing I have had to do. Good return on investment and is truly trouble free. If you are looking for a good solid canister filter that is not over done with electronic gadgets, dependable operation, hassle free set-up, comes w/DVD and comes with everything you need to install and operate the filter, I would suggest this product. Manufacturer has a good track record and excellent customer service.
