"Fair product"
I'm using 2 in a 90gln and 2 in my 220gln. They look "better" because of less clutter... 2 devices hanging down the back instead of 4? They are bulky. The printed temps do not represent whats going on, way off! And one flashes constantly, stating the temp is "off" by 5 degrees? I unplugged that one.

"Good while they lasted"
Bought two of the 300 watts in august 2010, it is now october 2011 and they have both failed. Can't believe rena would produce such junk. I guess that's why they are discontinued.

"Not as good as others say"
I purchased 2 of these within the last 6 months, and one has failed already (stuck on). Was working great until then.

"So far so good"
The 200W on my 75g has not had an issue in about a year, so I've replaced 3 other heaters with them as well in the past 2-3 months. The 50W is the least accurate, about 2 degrees lower than setting. I especially like the flashing LED warning if water temp gets >5 degrees out of whack.

"Works a treat"
I have a XP3 and connecting it was simple. Lock steady at 24C. Just what the africans its supports like. Easy to forget its there. Yes, its a little chunky, but it black and blends in. Reviewed the 300w

I've been through the heater merry-go-round - glad i found this.

"Own an XP? You need to own this."
I replaced a glass heater that was struggling to keep the tank at 72 degrees. A few hours and this had my tank at a steady 78. Built like a tank, looks GREAT! One less piece of equipment in the tank, and blends in nicely. Maybe a little pricey, but WORTH IT!
P.S. Maybe a little wider than glass heaters, but its is not much. You won't be sacrificing any space with it.

"better than the visitherm stealth?"
For those of you who have the rena filstar filters should consider buying this heater so you can use it as the filter intake!! the light indicator is great and the heater is nice and sturdy- plus it's black!
The only downside is that it is wide and sticks out a bit.. either way i'll be getting these heaters from now oninstead of the stealths

"Greatest thing ever"
