I've had three different brands of heaters. The two I'm using right now are Marineland (for my betta's tank) and Eheim Jager (for my Tetra tank). The Marineland isn't as slick looking at the Eheim or as well designed and constructed, but I've found the temperature gauge on the Eheim is 5° off the thermostat. Bit annoying, but just takes a bit of adjustment to get right. I would still recommend one of these, and they're only a bit more expensive than the other brands on the market.
EDIT: I just read your latest post about one of your Tetra dying. Please google before adding anything more to your tank. I don't know what kind of catfish you got, but some of them can be too aggressive for a community tank with Tetra.
the one i had malfunctioned and brought the water to 90 degrees, but
my room is 76 degrees on average and my thermometer reads 72-78 all the time so ill be getting a heater next week.
