I have the 200w model. I've had it for about 2 months, maybe 3 now. It has been spot on since I bought it until this week.
An external thermostat is a good idea to be on the safe side. I also asked him if my room temperature could be the cause and he said its doubtful.
I'm just really nervous because today its 50 degrees outside and my tank is running no heater until I get home in 3 hours. it was 77 this morning when I left so I'm hoping that worst case scenario it dropped to 75, anymore than that and I'm going to worry.
Note to self: purchase back up heater!!!
