Seio Aquarium Water Pump

Is anyone using these pumps? If so, how are they working for you?

The only thing that worries me is that they are made by RIO

Sorry to revive this thread but I saw Marine Depot put these pumps on sale. Anyone use one. 620 gph pump in the tank seems like a lot. I seem to have too many dead spots though...

I read some on RC about these and most say they don't have the starting issues of the old RIOs. Most there go with the 820 though. This is a lot of flow!

Darin, can you meet or beat the Marine Depot price for the 620? PM me what you can do or post here. Might get some orders going
