They work. It's a decent filter. I'd rate it 7/10. Better as a water mover than a filter. Just ditch everything and load that sucker up with bio balls or plastic pot scrubbers.
If you're looking for large quality canisters, I'd go with an Eheim 2260/2. If you're baller and want the best quality canisters, I'd go with the ADA canister filters.
