best heater

my g-ma wants to get me something for my new aquarium for christmas and she said under 50 dallors so im thinking i should get the best aquarium heater under 50 dallors. I was thinking either of these.
http://www.marinedepot.com/aquarium_...um.asp?CartId=
I relly like this one cause it has the external heat adjustment and it seems like a high end product(cause its expensive) but i dont think im going to get it because the cosomer reveiws are all terible.
this one looks good http://www.marinedepot.com/md_viewIt...product=EJ1115 I like this cause it is very accurate and the costumer reviews are terrific.
If any of you know of a better heater under 50 bucks let me know.
also should i go with the 100 or 150 watt for a 15 gallon with 10 gallon sump(that makes 25 gallons total)

I recomend Jager as it is an EHeim product. I've not heard of any troubles with them.

I do wish it was set up like the unit in your first pic. That looks to be a nice heater. I have not had any experience with that one myself. The digi gauge is very a very nice touch.

Don't think of it as an expensive heater. Think instead of it being a good deal for two pieces of equipment as it doubles both as a heater and a temp gauge.

Your second link did not open for me.

Fixed. Apparently the word "good" was stuck to the link hence the link didn't work.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Now that's funny to see the link was to a Jager Eheim product.
