Yes, they are very good. Worth every penny and kick the crud out of other brands priced twice as much. I own two, a 303b and a 304b.

I can't wait to get another tank so I can buy one of these they are a fraction of the price of the top
Brands and work just as well.

Seldomly have I heard bad things about these filters and I'd buy a canister over a HOB any day.

Yup, canister over HOB any day. The AC110 is a good filter though, so it basically comes down to your preference.
