New HOB Filter with Protein Skimmer thoughts

Have you guys seen the new Coralife marine filter with a protein skimmer attached? I think it's a pretty neat,but wonder how effective it really is. What are your thoughts on it?

Looks like junk to me. The cup seems like it would be pretty small and I doubt the pump is very strong. I wouldn't waste money on it. Skimmers are really only as good as their pump

Finally got it! Been on for a day now. Seems to be working good so far. Had a half a cup of funk today. Was easy to take off and dump out. Did a water change today. I will say it is kinda loud but my tank is ok the den so it's not a bother. If your tank is in a space that's close to you it may be an issue
