Would this be a good choice for my reef tank?

Has anyone used the TidePool 2 wet/dry filter from Marineland? Here is a link to the product description. It would be for a 120 gallon reef tank.
Thanks
Zero

If it is for a reef...I recommend only using a sump and/or refugium (a glass tank is usually cheaper than a wet/dry system), and allowing the rock and sand to preform nitrification and denitrification.

isn't this a sump? Sorry, I am still learning and don't really have a firm grasp of all the equipment yet.

Remove the biowheel and it is a sump, a Wet/Dry filter contains a sump, but a sump doesn't necessarily contain a wet/dry, if you see what I mean.
