Rated 5 out of 5 by Mer3230 This filter is well worth the extra $$$!
This power filter is absolutely the best investment you you can make towards your fish aquarium!!!
EXTREMELY quiet operation!! No rattling, dripping water noise that you hear in a typical power filter. Absolutely no noise at all. I've owned several different kinds of filters and this one is by far the best! Even though this filter does cost a little more than other power filters sold at Petsmart, the quiet operation of this filter is well worth it. Another plus is that you can adjust the speed of the filter so slow moving fish and/or fry aren't thrown around your tank from a strong current. Don't waste your money on any of the other power filters out there..... this one is by far the best investment you can make ...it is well worth the extra bucks to assure peace and quiet in your home and a comfortable environment for your fish! A+++

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jp56 Aqua clear 50
Just purchased the aqua clear 50 today after reading the reviews on how well it works. And trying about four other file that were terrible not working at keeping my tank clear. So hopefully this filter will solve that problem, I will keep you posted after running in my tank for a few days, but what I can tell you right now is I'm very happy at how quiet it is, I have it on my tank in the dinning room were we eat and the kids do there homework. . And can only hear the water flow which is very minimal. Compared to the other three I returned after one day.

by Puckhog Best HOB but not quiet and kind of cheap.
I have the 50 on my 56gal SW. I wanted the 70 but it requires more clearance behind the tank than the one I had previously and wouldn't fit. The filter is quiet compared to other power filters (I returned a few that were ridiculously loud) but other reviews saying they can't tell if it is running are exaggerated. The impeller is noisy and the unit vibrates. Water splash is minimal. Everything is very cheap plastic like all the rest. I would gladly pay more for someone to make a little better quality HOB. I like the 3 stage filtration.
