Aqueon Pro 250W here.

Had it for over 10 months and no problems.

Like mfdrookie516 said. Mine is stable but it doesn't match the dial reading to actual temp. It is set to around 74 but keeps it right on 78-79 degrees. It is oversized for my tank so that may be why.

Kind of related. My Sybon digital thermometer was reading 52 degrees a few months ago. Needless to say I almost had a heart attack when I read that. My fish were fine so I was like WTF!? How are they still alive Turns out the thermo was crap. So I went with an old school glass one.

Finally had time to return the second Marineland yesterday, and I swapped for one of the Aqueon Pros. I put it in first thing this morning, and plugged 'er up after letting it sit for a little while to acclimate. That thing has held 80° solid all day long (which, incidentally, exactly matches my setting on the dial). Hoping to see that same 80 reading when I get back in here Monday morning.

Luckily I've had time to do all this playing before the tank was stocked. I'd be completely hosed if I had installed the 2 Marinelands in a live environment! Or else have some really ticked off fishies.
