    I see them in nurserys a lot. I think they're for water features as they generally have very long cables

    They're not too bad. Noise about the same as most pumps. Better than astro pumps I reckon.

    Their consistancy is not 100%. Iv'e had 6 of them and the only one's which get my blessing are the 3000lph one's. Anything smaller is k*k they last about 3mths . Iv'e 2 3000lph on CLS's which have lasted 2yrs so far with no cleaning. They give a reasonable head aswell. (that sounds sick)

    The impellers wear out really quick, like maybe 4-6 months tops. I have used them in my water feature/pond, not in my tank.

    I am using a Hailea HX6540 at the moment - as close to silent running as you can get.
