This is a review for the 50w. This is probably my least favorite heater I've tried, including a no-name cheap glass heater. TL;DR - it didn't fry my fish or steal my car, but it can't hold a temp. I've used it in 3 different circumstances - 5 gal glass tank planted and occupied, 3 gal of water in a 5gal bucket, and a 3 gal acrylic quarantine tank. The temp varies by a ridiculous 4-5 degrees, leaning towards the cool side. I set it to 80 and it'll average about 77, but sometimes I'll spot it at 81. My tanks in the same room with other heaters do not have this problem. It does *kind of* work, so I guess if you need something that gives you an approximate temp and doesn't explode, this is for you. But seriously, just get something cheaper.
Very impressed with the durability of this heater!
I have had a 50% success rate with these heaters. Chewy graciously replaced a 200W that was stuck on a high temp. The 200W replacement works ok. I have a 75 W that works but is stuck on 74 degrees. Another 75W works but is difficult to adjust. Another issue I have with this heater model is that the suction cups to the mounting bracket fall off to easily. Not planning to buy these again. Nice concept but I expect better quality given the price.
I don't Like this fish tank heater I read over the Instructions a few times but I can not get the temp to go up I need it set at 82 degrees.
