I bought this power filter about 4 months ago and I really like that it is very very quiet. It is adjacent to my computer room and phone and the other unit was so noisy that it was difficult to carry on a phone conversation because of the noise. While i like it very much the first one died on me and I just got it replaced with another Whisper ex 70. I still bought the same one but i wish the first one would have lasted longer. I would rate it excellent and the best if i didn't have my first one just die on my after 4 months. I just may be a inadvertent problem with that first unit

I loved my Whisper 70. Easy to use, easy to change filters and SUPER quiet. That super quiet feature was what really won me over since my tank is in my living room. After a time, the filter started making some noise and I bought the necessary part from the manufacturer and fixed it. Happy again but, again, after a time it started making an unpleasant and loud noise. This time, even though the filter was still working, I ordered two new ones. I just thought I'd already gotten my money's worth. This time, however, the noise started after only a week. Now it's really loud and I'm super unhappy. All aquarium filters filter but I bought this one because it purported to be quiet. It's not.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Oscargirl This product works great
When i first put the ex70 on my tank the water was horribly dirty but within hours of running the water was crystal clear

Rated 2 out of 5 by Brinords Seems to keep water fairly clean but VERY loud
I've had this filter- Tetra Whisper EX 20 for less than 3 months. I've been having intermittent issues where the pump is VERY loud. Make a loud vibrating/humming noise. When it wasn't doing that, it was a great filter. Now it's loud, annoying and irritating! I've attempted to clean it, nothing helps.
