Tetra® Whisper EX70 Filter System
Third one over three years, noisy and the motors go out. Messy clean up.

I don't have the newest version of this with the change indicator. It's very quiet and I haven't had any problems with it. The directions it came with did not mention the pre-screening portion of the filter. it was only after numerous changes that I found that there was another part that could be cleaned beside the filter media. (none of my previous filters had this). I have a 55 gal and it does wonders keeping it clean. I am adding a pump head to the other end of the tank to get more movement in the water towards the filter. I don't see what all the fuss is about concerning noise. It's very quiet.

Great function but a little loud
This seems like a good filter. It is easy to use and install and can be easily customized to use the media of your choice. The "waterfall" output is much smoother than a lot of other filters so you don't have all that splashing noise. It is easy to adjust the impeller and the customer service rep I spoke to was very helpful. The only negative I have is that the motor was a little louder than expected. It was a little loud for a kids bedroom but would be great in any other room in the house.
