Thus far it's been good. No leaks, very quiet and it primes well considering the input/exhaust lines are partially horizontal.

I wish they would make canister filters wider and shorter so we'd have more room between the top of the filter and the bottom of the tank. I've shortened the line between the filter and the CO2 diffuser so there is less of a bend right out of the filter.
