Anybody ever try the CubeMaster?

http://cgi.ebay.com/12G-NANO-TANK-by...QQcmdZViewItem

That's a link for a Cube Master Deluxe. It's a nano cube knock-off. It claims to have thicker glass than the jbj cube as well as all the other goodies. Is this a cheap made knock-off or is this a quality alternative?

Cube Masters - Any users??????

Same question - different year. Just saw the 2007 version of this on Ebay. 36W over 12g, claims it runs cool w/ no fans, and thicker glass than the NanoCube. Anybody have any experience with these? SOMEBODY must have bought them!

Specs look good. Why not buy it and write a review?

Found them at a LFS around here the other day for $170! O_O. I've read the reviews on them over at Nano-reef.com (they usually have all the new gadgets figured out before we ever even heard of them) and I've heard some not so good things. They tend to run really hot, the pump isn't as strong as they'd like (so it's probably fine for a planted tank) and after a few months, alot of people reported the ballasts going out. Other then that, they seem to like them, save for having to do massive mods like they do on pretty much all tanks...

Are you sure it was the 2007? They claim to run cooler than the 06 model without fans.

Fairly certain, but I'm not positive.
