I have one of the Sunsun can filters and it's been working great on my 44gal planted hex for the last year. Keeps the water nice and clean, very quiet. Gets cleaned every other water change and I have to put my hand on the top to make sure that the pump is working. It's just that quiet! Honestly, I Don't have any real experience with any other can filters so can't contrast but, it's been a great filter so far! I use activated carbon in a filter sock, ceramic bio media, and filter floss... Can't knock it on price either!
