Planted Tank Obsessed

I have to say I like the Marina Slim that came with 10gal kit years ago. For me space was an issue, I didn't want the tank pushed out too far away from the wall, there's no priming, I find it super quiet, and I don't use the cartridges, I just add my own media into it. I do find that it flows too deep into the water and there isn't any surface agitation, but I just clipped a binder clip onto the rim of the tank and it raised the filter enough to give perfect surface agitation.
I also have a Fluval (C70?) and an Aquaclear that I liked for my bigger tank (when I had one), but they are boxy and I didn't like how far out my tank was.
I'm using my Marina Slim again after sitting in a box in my basement for the last four years and other than losing the little flowrate piece, it's doing awesome.
