Update:

I took it back and got a marina 10w, still preset though. Since I put it in my temp hasn't budged from 78F very impressed!!

Well, the ol' Marineland Stealth Pro heater burned you too...

I had 1 and never thought I'd have a problem with the recall. Still, I contacted Marineland. They sent me a return label and a nice new shiny Stealth heater. That was last year.

This past September, I heard a loud "CRACK" during the night, turned the light on and didnt notice anything amiss. Came home from work the next day to several floating fish, and a 103f degree fish tank!!!!!

Thankfully you didnt have the same result. Remember, this was with a heater Marineland sent me AFTER I called about the recall, they had me send my recalled heater back and send me the one that killed about 50% of my community tank

WOW!! They really need to their act together it seems like! My tank went from 77F to 88F over night dvd I though that was huge! After letting it sit for a day it kept the tank at 82F, but still, if I wanted that temp I would've gotten a heater that did that!

I'm in love with this marina though, its small, looks nice, and its spot on with the temp accuracy!
