Agree to disagree. Opinions are like A-holes; everyone's got one. On my +300gal system the Reeflos are quieter than the skimmer, cooling fan and exhaust fan so the amount of sound they produce is...

The gold was used but looking pristine when I got it so I'm going to guess its been running for at least 4 years now. They are just shy of 23 lbs each which would cost $24 regular parcel to Burnaby.
