SunSun HW-304B 5-Stage External Canister Filter with 9-watt UV Sterilizer, 525 GPH

I have a 150 gallon freshwater aquarium I will be setting up soon. I'm looking around for canister filters. I probably will buy 2 of them. Anyone heard of the SunSun HW-304B 5-Stage External Canister Filter with 9-watt UV Sterilizer, 525 GPH? Thanks.
Matt

SunSun HW-304B 5-Stage External Canister Filter with 9-watt UV Sterilizer, 52...

I used the Search function with "304B" and found these threads that mention this filter. I tried to select threads with less than a dozen posts.
Cascade 1500 or SunSun 304b canister filter???
Quietest canister filter.
Will an eheim 2217 be enough filtration for a 100g tank?

I have 2 running for over 1 year and I have not had any issues. Got rid of the green water in days (uv function). Had no leaks, no noise complaints. For the price of these filters I would recommend them to anyone.

Agreed they are reliable.

Only thing with my SunSun is this:

If i dont put the lid on perfectly it wont seal properly and water leaks. As in, it drains out about 10 gallons in a day.

Mine is second-hand though, which might be part of the issue. Just saying, be careful to watch for leaks.

Yeah i have mine on top if a cookie sheet just in case.

Its only happened 2 times, and the second time i fixed it right away. The first time was bad though, the carpet was completely saturated in front of the tank.
