Question In Line Heaters?

Can I get some opinions on Hydor In line heaters. Are they reliable, accurate etc? I read somewhere they are noisy..Any suggestions for other In-lines heaters? I have always used Jager, but I like the idea of getting equipment (multiple heaters) out of the tank.

I've had my Hydor for awhile and it's worked great. Mine makes one little click when it turns on. I sleep with it in my bedroom and never have any problems. It's good to know the thing is working since they are usually tucked away somewhere out of sight. It's a very peaceful click, nothing at all like a Co2 solenoid cutting on or off.

I recommend them.

The Hydor only makes an audible click when it turns on to begin heating the water. Other than that it's flawless if you follow instructions on how to properly install it and use it.

If you're seriously considering buying one; Drs. Foster & Smith is having a sale on them with the cheapest prices you can find. And if you're a new customer there; PM me before buying and I'll give you a $10 coupon you can use (it only works with new customers and unfortunately they sent it to me after I made my first purchase with them).

I got the Hydor 300 W on the output side of my Eheim 2028 at the 46G.
I love it ! Keeps my temp stable in a range of +/- 0.1 F, the only flux I get when the morning sun comes in for an hour
