heater question...is this good? Pro heat 2 titanium?

i was thinking about getting the Pro heat 2 250 watt heater (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MakeTrack=true) for the sump of my 90 gal FOWLR. i like the idea of titanium being non corrosive and having the temp and controls all in one unit...has anyone used this and had success?

I just ordered one, not thats any major help to you. I did quite a bit of research and felt that it was one of the best heaters for the function/price.

105 lbs Live rock from LR.com
2 Yellow Tail Damsels
2 Green Chromis
1 Emerald Crab
3 Peppermint Shrimp
4 Scarlet Hermit Crabs

My only concern would be the probe control. Should that come out of the water for any reason you're fried. Otherwise they look like nice heaters. Some things I like about it are they are unbreakable, the on/off indicator and the temp display. The heaters I have the thermostats are vastly off from the temp they heat to. I hate the heaters that I have for the above reasons. I may just replace them with these!
