I haven't used them personally, but they are growing in popularity here in the forums. Just like the taotronic LED panels, they are being used and loved.

Only real issue with the jebaos is their longevity. But at their price point it's an easy gamble.

I've only had mine a month or so but no issues yet. It does move alot of water but I have it in my 6 foot tank and I am debating getting another one.

I got mine from ebay for $90 shipped btw. There are group buys here and there though when you can get it for a bit less.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

The 2 I got in April are still going strong . Great powerheads for the price IMO.

They are still a really new product. Nobody knows yet how long they will last. Without the longevity being taken into account they are a really very nice powerhead. Very powerful, moves lots of water, nice wave modes, and good design. They are all around a very good powerhead from what I've seen with playing around with mine.

When I first got mine I was playing around with it on my 55g cichlid tank. This is a single wp25 Fiddling around with the wave frequency gives different size waves. This would have been splashing water out of my tank when the water level was about 2 inches down if it weren't for my hood.
