I have used the whole line of pumps for many years. It's a great bang for your buck.
The good the bad and the ugly sides of the pumps...
The plastic suction mount bracket breaks easy and with age gets very brittle
on the other side I mentioned age so the pumps last quite a long time.
Impellers with age tend to fall apart however I mentioned age again the pumps last quite a long time.
I used the model 1200 and 900 in Circulation Mode the pump can reverse water flow every now and again. I purchased the two pumps used and something may have broken or was missing from the previous owner. I am only mentioning this because I lost a fish and can not rule out the possibility it got sucked in because of the reverse action.
The pumps are so popular other companies make accessories for them such as magnet holders.
All and all I give them a 4.5 stars
