Need a titanium heater recommendation

It's going to be for a 94 gallon display and 30 gallon sump, so 300 watts is good?

I'm satisfied with the one I use.

Finnex HMA Heater w/Analog Controller - Bulk Reef Supply

Might want to go with the 500W

300W – 80-100 Gallon tank
500W – 100-120 Gallon tank

Some of the reviews have me concerned.

I bought one that was like that and another model that had a different temp probe. The other one worked better.

Here's the other one I used on a different tank:
Finnex HMO Heater w/ Digital LED Controller - Bulk Reef Supply

Better reviews...

What's the ambient temp in the room? Two heaters at 200w each seems more than adequate.

I run two 300 watt marineland heaters in my 210 with 40 gal sump with no issues. They are about 3 years old without a single issue so far. 68 degree ambient temperature

If it's always 72 in the room, two heaters @ 200w each will be more than fine for that water volume.
