You will love it! I got mine a few weeks ago and it's been great. Very quite. I've already redone the media for more filter pads and I put so many filter pads in there that I thought it was going to really limit flow...not even.
One suggestion, buy the eheim spraybar kit, #2, I believe. It's about $20-30 and well worth it. The spraybar that comes with is ok, but there's a little semi-circle fitting that goes over the hose on the tank corner that really sucks. The eheim #2 has all kinds of fittings, 3 spraybar tubes, and 2 nozzles, and an easy fill top part for priming if you prefer that way. #1 is the pickup side, #2 is the pressure side fittings.
