Howdy. I got a 9010 in my one tank and in my 2m main tank I got the 9420.
This one is awsome, rated 2000l, if i need to upgrade ore want to skim more all i need to do is add another pump to it, then it can handle 4000l. Will take some pics the weekend and post them.

I have no problems with noise with the 9010. When you take off the collection cup, you can hear it, otherwise very silent. Yes, it's the "long square one" as opposed to the one in the first pic (I think those are called Tunze DOC skimmers). Rated for 1000liter.

Yes they are very quiet, only when cleaning the cup is it noisy because it flushes and cleans itself while you clean the cup

Installed the 9020 last night, switched it on and it bagan to make beautiful bubbles right away. Still need to fix a waste collector tank somewhere - for now the two tubes are just flowing into a 2liter ice-cream tub resting on the baffles. Already some dark-green gunk in there this morning.

So, I've upgraded my skimmer from a 9010, to a great-condition second-hand 9020, doubling my capacity. The 9010 is rated for 1000liter and the 9020 is rated for 2000liters. I have about 850liter, some of which are liverock, so this should be just great!

Thanks RaveMan!
