the 406's are going for $140 on the e-bay at the moment, mine is getting delivered it today

has anyone compared it to the 405?

if not i might take some pictures and compare, since i have a new 405 at home as well.

I just snatched up one of the 206's from Amazon for only 99$ (which was way less than I paid for my 205 two years ago). Hopefully it will be here next week.

I think the biggest changes are probably the +15% power output, and the "Bio-Foam". I'm not sure if "Bio-Foam" is supposed to be replacing ceramic media or just supplementing it.

decided to put mine to use, not all too many changes

the impeller cover only clicks in via 1 side and no more clear brittle plastic.

color changes here and there, a new aquastop valve, and clear tubing and plastic for intake strainer and output nozzle

media trays are now white, but no other changes, comes with egg crate foam for bottom, 1 tray bio max, 2 trays carbon, and filter polishing pads.
