I only have 1 ehiem canister and its rock solid and going strong after prolly 5 or so years now. As quiet as the day it was new.

I gotta agree with abbysdad though too, with filtration its definitely quality over quantity, which is why the eheim would be my choice. I just dont like dealing with sponge filters :)

Thanks to all that have responded. I have read mixed reviews on this filter. Most complaints are the prime button doesn't work all that well after a while and some seal leaks and causes tank to drain. From what I have read the Eheim filters are good filters. I figured for 100 bucks that it is a good deal considering it retails for about 250. I think I'm going to go and check it out.
