Eheim Power Scraper

Has anyone tried this:
It looks very effective, but pricy too. I hate cleaning the back glass on my tank, and don't exactly love cleaning the front and ends. This might make it if not fun, at least more satisfying - I always find streaks left after I get done.

It looks pretty neat, but I have been hesitant to buy EHEIM products after they outsourced to China.
I have some older EHEIM products and thought I would get newer products when I built my most recent tank, but no dice: I had to send back the return pump twice in a month and the vacuum I got didn't even work. In my opinion, until I see that their quality has picked back up, I won't buy it.

I bet you could do a better job with one of these.

That's EXACTLY what I've been looking for. Can you tell me where you got that, or got that picture?

Looks cool, but I don't understand why it's powered? What is the motor or whatever doing? Does the blade wiggle or something?

I always end up with some missed spots too

edit:'s video, not a picture, nvm.....I am willing to try it out, I'm in the market for a good scraper..chinese or not, I still love eheim, and regular scrapers aren't exactly cheap either

Looks like it could be cool. Unfortunately for me, it wouldn't fit in some tight places on my current tanks which are the places that bug me the most. Then again, not sure I would pay $85 either. I hate cleaning the back glass on my current tank but I will stick with what I know for now. If someone buys this, please write a review.
