I have two of these internal filters. One is the second largest model, 2210, and the other is the smaller, 2208 model with an extra module on to improve the media area without increasing the flow.
This feature is absolutely superb and has allowed me to use a large area of foam without completely blasting water all around the 2ft tank that filter occupies.
The venturi is powerful, but I have never used it for long periods as it isn't best in a Planted tank.
The main selling feature of this filter is it's multi-directional pump that pivots in the top of the filter housing to provide a wealth of directions to the output. There isn't complete freedomk in this as the case restircts the angles slightly, but it is very, very useful.
They also ought to sell this filter on it's absolutely superb bracket and sucker fitting to secure the filter to the tank. I have had one of these filters for well over a year now and the suckers are as secure as the day they were bought. I don't know how ehiem have done it, but other manufacturers ought to take note.
