I take it he has had both?

Anyway, I have a prizm, yes they need adjustment (but it isn't bad). I have had mine for a while now and it skims great for my 32 gallon hex! Plus I bought mine for $41.00 on ebay. It depends what kind of deal you get... Keep your eyes open and you can pick a skimmer up cheap on ebay (no matter the brand).

I've been running one for quite a while. Too lazy and cheap atm to replace it. It works OK, but honestly I get the same readings with or without it. I tried constantly adjusting it to keep it running, but it would then start pumping water after a while. So I set mine in one place and forget it. When it stops producing foam I clean the cone and it works again without being adjusted.
