Which heater do You like?

Hi all,
I wanted to know what ya'll Like for heaters? I suppose Ebo Jager. I have been a firm customer to The Titanium Proheat's.
Unfortunatley yesterday I was doing a water change, and every time I would stick my Python in and start draining, the GFI would kick out as soon as the water hit the faucet. After proscess of elimination, I determined that the heater was causeing it. It doesn't bother me or the crabs as I had my arm in there for two hr's while cleaning.
But I need to change it out and just wondered if there was a more popular brand. The other thing is, Do the algea grow on glass heaters like it did my titanium? and could the algea be the reason it went bad?

Tell me what heater you like. Thanks! :P

my visitherms have given me no problems (except when I removed it from the tank plugged in, let it sit 10 mins, then dropped it back in the tank )

I ordered ebo jagers for my up-and-coming SW tank. Ebo's happen to have an auto-shutoff feature if they get too hot

Visi therm and Ebo Jager are the best IMO. The Won titanium heaters are so prone to sticking on it is pathetic. This heater has more returns and end user problems than any other product i sell. I have heard the pacific coast titanium heaters are susposed to be better. I run a visi therm on my own tanks.

I have 3 won pros, a few visitherms, a few made by whisper, and 2 ebo jagers. I've never had a problem with any of them, maybe I'm just lucky?

I recently bought a visi-therm "stealth 100" all black, no glass, and a thermostat to set the temp. It is very accurate! Keeps my tank at 81 and never drops at all. I didn't like not being able to see an on/off light at first, but the built in thermostat is very accurate which really surprised me to be honest. (according to the glass thermometer I use)
