I use to have a xp2... but had to give it up because it was constantly whining... that's why I have fish and don't want kids. No whining! Go Eheim!

I use an XP3 and am totally happy with it. As far as noise, the only time I hear it is when I open the cabinet to get something out. I did compare Eheim vs Rena when I originaly set up my 50. Lfs had them set up side by side (different model of each) and to be honest I could not justify the extra $ for the Eheim. Yes they are quieter but to me the levels were minimal. I'll proudly take the #9 spot.

I've never had a Filstar but have heard good things about them (except for the noise... ).

However, everytime I look at one I'm reminded of a plastic garbage can!

So I suggest you guys should change your club name to the garbage can filter pimp club!
