Cascade filter

Anyone have any judgements for these filters? I'm thinking about getting one for a 60g tank used.

Moved to General Hardware/Equipment Discussion.

As far as canisters go, these are not so great IMO. They're hard to prime and noisy compared to other brands.

I tested a Cascade 1200 canister that I bought from craigslist. It was decent. It had more noise compared to my newer canister, but that's what I expected from a used product. Its still more quiet than my HOB filters.
