Not worth the money. It's just a magnet...

I think they are a very cool design but neither materials nor R&D could possibly warrant such a high price.

Maybe $150 to $200 but that would be stretching it.

$420 is just insane! I bet if they dropped the price to under $200, they would sell 100x's of times as many and ultimately, profit considerably more due to higher volume.

Just my opinion.

Before I spent that kind of money, I'd drill for closed loop and use a 4 way Oceans Motions device.

Ouch! Very cool but I agree with the rest of these guys; it's an expensive powerhead. I like the battery backup.

i wish some one else would build a cheaper one also, i do like the idea of no stray voltage(less cluter in the tank) battery backup is a +, and the pump is a beast, but it would be over 500 by the time it gets to my door that is crazy
i have been reading some on a closed loop system and that is probably the way to go,i am going to be building a tank from acrylic i think i will put a cls on it ,also i will try a calfo style overflow (that guy is my hero)
thanks for the input guys
