What should have been made a time ago!
I have purchased fancy $70 digital controllers that are way less accurate that this heater. This unit is easy to set up and has all the right parts in it. Electronic switching of power- no bi-metal contacts. In working with this heater, I have to say that if I need another one this is exactly the one I will buy not anything else. It keeps temperature pretty close to where you want it and easy to work with. If I was to build my own heater device- and I almost had to until I found this, this is the way I would build it and I am a 40 years Electronics Technician and BSEE. These guys got it right!

Good heater if you get a good one
Recently purchased four of these units in the last month. 3 of them work fantastic. Holding the temperature within 0.4F on my digital thermometers. That said, the one unit I had to return worked, but provided excessive temperature swings of up to 1.5F.
I have one complaint. I'd prefer Aqueon build the 150watt unit slightly shorter than the 200watt model. Currently, they're both the same length. That said, a 150watt or 200watt unit will work in a 30 gallon breeder if you install the heater so that it's touching the bottom glass. If you maintain the water level at or near 1/2'" below the minimum water line mark on the heater, the heater will still function properly.

100 watt excellent aquarium heater!
I have only used this for a few days! so far this is a really nice heater! It raised the temperature of a 30 gallon from about 58 to 76 very fast. Nice heavy duty covering around the heater , easy adjustment knob to set the temperature. Cord & plug are a good quality and long. The red-green running light is great! Easy way to see if the temperature is at the set point (green light) or when the heater is running (red light). I have been using aquarium heaters since the days of cheap hang on glass breaking, hard to adjust cheap junky heaters! Buy this heater and you will be happy.
