404b & 603b, both have been in operation for well over a year and I cleaned them out about 3 times the first year and that seems about good enough.. There both easily overfiltering the tanks, and the water is always what I expect it to be when testing it.

404 has just a sponge prefilter in the bottom and various bio-media, one rack of bio balls, one of ceramic, and one of hydroton, sometimes a couple packets purigen in the top rack.. I take those in and out more often than I clean it.. I only clean the sponge, flush one rack of bio media with hot tap water and leave the rest intact and drain/scrub the bottom of poop then put it back together full of dechlorinator and water for maintenance.. no mini cycles have been detected and ive been looking.

the 603b has one of the finer sponges at the inlet and the rest is full of hydroton with a few bioballs for good measure.. i dump all the hydroton and balls into a bucket of dechlorinated water, clean the inside of the housing, blast the sponge and put them back in after lightly agitating the hydroton to knock off debris.

both filters are vastly superior to the ones they replaced, a marineland magnum for the 55g and a stock chi filter for the 5.5g.. both sucked, they were loud, took effort to prime, made a mess and needed constant maintenance.. the exact opposite experience of the SunSun filters.

I've had mine for few months and aside from cleaning (probably not the filters fault anyway) it has been super reliable.

Dead2fall #99 picked up a 402b, it's OK for what I paid I guess.

UpstateSCguy Guess I'm an official member of the club. Got the 302 as a Christmas gift and set it up today. So far it seems good. Much quieter than I expected. Looks like I'm number 98.
