You could look at the spec sheets for both filters, the bit under "power consumption". Just a suggestion.

I have no experience with Fluval canisters (yet), but be aware that Eheim effectively offers NO warranty on their product. Their "consumer support" does not respond in any way if you mention "warranty". Their instruction manuals make no mention of a warranty. Proceed with them at your own risk.

I have to disagree. I had a 2074 that began having electronic issues that was still under the 3 year warranty. I contacted Eheim NA by phone and they replaced the filter with no problem. They will only honor the warranty on items purchased from authorized retailers which eliminates a lot of Ebay sellers and the purchase of used equipment from an individual.

Both are great canisters. Both will of course have lemons/bad units as any large-scale manufacturing product does. I have a Fluval 406, and really like it. Honestly, you can't go wrong with either. Look into what suits your wants/needs best. I liked the stopvalve and basket design on the Fluval, some hate it. Mechanically, both are good filters.

I have a Ehiem ECCO 2232 and I could not be happier! I can't even hear it running with my Fluval Edge 46l tank.

...If the Eheim and the Fluval were sitting next to each other on the same counter, which would you really take home? There's your answer!

Both are good brands.
