Are there similar modes to the Vortech?

There are 6 different modes . 3 of which you can tinker with and you can make waves if you like . They have a really nice broad flow . They are not close to the adjustability of the vortech but they are only around 75 bucks compared to $500 for a mp40

Oh wow ok... So if I can't scrape together $500, does the $70 include the drivers and everything? Any fallbacks to these guys??

No issues with mine so far. It is still a new product though. It comes complete with it's own wired control box . One does about 3500gph. The only issue I had is they were a touch noisy for the first few days but they are silent now.

I have one as well. I think the wave making selections and controll-ability is about worthless, but I do like the flow it puts out when set to full power. It's worth the 80 bucks or so.
