Marineland's new In-sump Protein Skimmer

Does anyone know of anyone who is using Marineland's new In-sump protein skimmers.
According to company brochure:
Bottom mounted motor
Smallest footprint
Needle wheel impeller
No external pipes,hoses or sponges
Adjustable industrial-designed drain line inhibits escape of bubbles into sump.
Sounds great to me. My current Berlin skimmer is not producing enough bubbles, therefore not enough gunk. I believe that its life is about done. Running for about 10 years now. Gone thru several pumps. Venturi valve seems not to work as well any more. Figured time for a new skimmer but only have so much room in my sump.

Well guys I look forward to ANY responses.

I have the 100 model in my new setup and seems to be working fine. But I do not have any fish yet. I am still cycling.
