Question Best Heater on Market?

Good morning all,

I believe my heater is about to go out as it is struggling to keep the temperature above 72 and I am cranking the setting all the way up. I Googled what the best heaters were and got mixed reviews. Has anyone tried the Fluval E-Series heater? Other than the price, it seems to do really well and I like how it has the burn-guard on it, preventing fish and invertebrates from getting burned. Any other reliable heaters out there? Thanks!

I have a Aqueon Pro in my 10 gallon and it keeps wanting to short out unfortunately. The heater I have in my main tank is the real issue though. It is the last piece of equipment I did not replace when I rebuilt my aquarium, and now it is time. Cost is not a problem with me, so I am more than willing to pay more for a heater that will last longer and be precise if you guys have any suggestions.

Durability isn't there?? They are virtually indestructible, mine isn't glass its incase in a non corrosive material, I have not one complaint about it.

They have a limited lifetime warranty, I've had mine about 1.5 years but I also don't have to over use it as my house alone would keep the tank at 76 degrees, yes my house gets miserable in the summer I have no AC so I actually needed to buy a cooler for the tank tbh but right now I just use clip of fans

I run 30 aqueon pros.
You won't find better for less.
Search for a sale ..I hit Kens all the time but have found them on ebay/amazon sometimes for a deal.
I still won't buy another type?
What do I know ? Besides my rams like to have consistent temps in the 80s...
My oldest pro maybe 10 years old?
They are the only heater that properly addresses proper sizing for temperature desired..Shame the info is in the box !

I absolutely will not get any other brand from now on, the aqueon pro is amazing, I don't need no fancy digital one. The price is decent a little expensive but to me well worth it as my tank never drops below 78
