Same heater, less $. I just ordered one from here. Fast, cheap shipping as well. Have used these guys several times with only good experiences. I would also reccomend these heaters. I really like the external temp control.

I have heard of a number of cases of Viaqua titaniums failing, but only one for a Won Bros Pro-Heat titanium failing....personally, I have 16 of the Pro-Heats, and no problems so far, FW or SW.

I have 2 Pro-Heats and they work great. I am starting a new tank and bought a Viaqua. I hope they work just as good.

Just curious, what's wrong with the old glass tube heaters? Why is a titanium better. I don't really see a price advantage one way or the other. The reason I ask is I need a new heater.

Here is a link from the company about the heater.
http://www.wonbrothers.com/product/heater/ICHEATER.htm
I have bought my heaters on ebay. Here is a link for one.
http://cgi.ebay.com/UNBREAKABLE-PRO-...QQcmdZViewItem
It is not the same person that I dealt with, but if you look around you might find a good deal on one.
The link I have is for the ones with a dial to adjust temperature. They are very good. They also make one with a digital dial to adjust temperature. Either way you can't go wrong. HTH

From what I have read the titanium heaters are much more durable and therefore probably last longer. It doesnt take much to break a glass heater. Plus I think the titanium ones are more accurate...dont know but just a guess.

Thanks Degbowl for the link! I appreciate it!

I have had no issues with my heaters but they have never came on that I am aware of. I guess I should recommend MH lights.
