MARINELAND® Emperor Power Filter
Highly recommend this product
This product filters extremely well. It's the best in the market, unless you are going to buy a canister filter. In regards to what the other bad reviews are out there, here's the thing: it's called regular maintenance! In terms of the noise, when I didn't align the wheels properly, it made the noise. My boyfriend fixed it for me, he aligned it, and cleaned out the parts (standard maintenance as stated in the manual). I have two of these filters, one for my cichlid tank, and the other for my turtle tank. Very happy with product. =)

What is wrong with you people?
Here is what I have to say... The emperor 400 is the best filter I have ever owned! Now you people probably haven't had any experience with the emperor. You need to make sure that you check the impeller every 3 weeks in order for your filter to run properly. This is not a heap of junk or a waste of money. So, just make sure you maintain it properly and you'll go down the right path! Hopes this helps for people who are interested in buying this!

Hunk of junk
I have, for now, a 350. It's a filter, many companies make them, and this one in no way stands out in filter performance. The only thing that stands out about it is that when I am home, it sounds like I am back at work at the factory. It might run silent for a couple days, then out of nowhere the impeller will begin making the most horrendous noises and no amount of messing with it will shut it up. My options are turn the filter off and kill my fish, or give them a heart attack and irritate the entire family. I'll go back to a cheaper brand, at least my others ran quiet.
