Vortech mp10s worth it?

Been reading about these, people seem to like them a lot. But do you guys think its really worth the money rather then a couple powerheads? I'm setting up a 40 breeder reef so I'm wondering if i should get 2 mp10s. Would that eliminate any dead spots in the tank?

Thats a much more reasonable price. Have you had experience with them?

I haven't had experience with them I think they are too powerful for my setup,if they had an mp-10 version I'd jump on it.(I only have a 34 solana cube)

It would be interesting to see how they are. If only it wasn't in extremely broken english.

That's not an MP40 knock off... that's more like a tunze knock off.

And to answer your question, OP... yes... they are most certainly worth it. Look for one online used though. I bought mine used for about half the cost of a new one. Loved it.

I think I'll go with the vortech just to be safe. I'll keep an eye out for used ones.
