I think it's a brilliant idea but ultimately flawed as what someone liked another will hate.
I personally think the eheim 2211 is too low on the flow front for anything bigger than about 3 gallons where as other people will say it's great for a 10gallon, it's all personal conjecture. A lot of people really like HOB's, I've used them and hated them... it's all personal preference.
I've used a 1200 lph filter on a 4 gallon tank, some people complain that a 300lph eheim blows their substrate around on similar sized tanks.
