I bought my tank and stand used and the prev. owner said it was "built in" to the stand (was bolted on in the inside of the stand). This pump was so loud that I could hear it upstairs... Maybe it had some water damage or something but it was driving me crazy. I replaced it with another used pump wasn't as powerful but peace of mind beats that any day!
Cheaper than most other pumps, but, like most of the other reviews say, it is really loud. I have the 30-80g model in my 55g and I like the fact that I can adjust the airflow. I only have 1 device attached to it and was a little disappointed when one of the outputs stopped working about 8 months into owning it.

"Loud but still ticking"
I have had mine for almost three years. Its the smaller unit although it is loud i have to wrap mine in a old t-shirt it is still going strong almost three years later. Doesn't have enough insulation. If you dont mind the loudness or dont sleep next to it its an ok buy.
I didn't think it is that loud. I mean as long as I didn't put it on a hard surface, it seemed to do fine. I've had mine for 3 years, but I don't use it all the time. Only when I medicate tanks. The air pump was used who knows how long before I got it.
