I've used this Tetra Whisper 10i In Tank Aquarium Filter for at least 2 years now. It has worked great. I've not had any issues with it functioning properly. I've recently noticed though that there may be some sort of special cleaning I need to do to it to keep it running properly for another two years. Our water here in MD is hard in my area and the filter motor now seems to stop turning, but I don't think it's due to the motor. It seems to be the spindle or something blocking it from turning. If I take it out and spin the motor, it will run fine for a few days and then it stops. Thus, I think it may need a deep cleaning with some special solution of some sort. If anyone can tell me how or what to do, that would be great. Thanks,

Rated 5 out of 5 by cdstark used these for years
I just purchased a new one to replace one I had for a number of years. I use the whisper filter in my class aquariums. They are easy to set up and are quiet and easy to change the filters. I have 2 medium and 3 large ones (in various aquariums).

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jessleeannnsb Not working!!!!
I just bought this 6 days ago. The first couple days it worked like a charm! Water was crystal clear! Then one day I woke up and the water was foamy, cloudy, and there was stuff all over the bottom on the rocks. I cleaned it out. That didn't work. I took the bottom off of it and cleaned that out and still nothing. Pretty disappointed because this was perfect. :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by KJMC Terrible, not what I expected
My boyfriend and I invested in this product a few months ago but boy was it a mistake. It was good at first, like the first 2 weeks and after that, a mess. It has to be cleaned so much because it just gets so dirty. It says to replace the filter with the bracket inside every month but it happens more often than that. Another thing is that it's not even silent!! Why is it called Whisper and said to be quiet when it's the loudest thing ever. The filter we had before this one was quieter and we barely liked that one.
