Tough and reliable

Comments: Decided to get back into the hobby, plugged it after 3+ years sitting in a box (probably not cleaned very well either) and works like the day I bought it. Bit larger than other powerheads but I like the easily adjustable flow and mounting.

Larger than I thought

Comments: The product says 360 degree rotation, when in point of fact, with the length of the pick-up and it's base, really only has about 90 degree movement side-to-side, and about 45 degrees up and down. I bought this because I have a tall hexagon tank, and while the filtration is large enough to handle it, it does not have a very strong output. I used this to get some water-flow down to the bottom, and it has done so very nicely. Little bit larger than I thought, but overall, pretty good.

Comments: I use 4 of these in my aquarium. Two have the spray bar attachment and tqo utilize aeriator tube. They do a fantastic job of aeriating the water and the spray bar attachments, complimented with the other two create just the right surface action and current. I would recommend these to anyone as well as any e-heim product. I swear by e-heim. incidentally, my aquarium is 300 gallons and 8 feet long. That is why I need 4 to create all the surface action.

Bulky and disappointing flow

Comments: My main issue with this powerhead is that the spherical shape makes it a lot bulkier than I was expecting. The cord is also very thick. It's OK for the money, but there are much smaller, more powerful units out there.
