Well... Ill say I have a rena xp, fluval 305 and two aquatop cf series 3 and 400uv... The Rena and the fluval leak... If I were shopping around, I might start on the bottom shelf.

That being said, I can't recall any negatives on any eheims and haven't own any of their products...

I have used both companies and a few more. I personally prefer eheims. They just feel like they are built better. But, this is just my humble opinion
