Titanium vs. Glass heaters

I have ordered a specially built 185-gallon acrylic tank and am shopping for the best heater. What is the best heater or heaters to buy for this tank (freshwater)?

Anyone have experience with both glass and titanium heaters? Which gives the best service? Which will last the longest? Would you suggest two smaller heaters or one large?

Give me some input as to your experiences with certain brands of heaters, and let me know what you recommend.

I like the ceramic ones from marineland (marineland stealth) For a 185 i would suggest going with 2 200 watt heaters. place them horizontal. one near the filter intake and one on the other side of the tank.

I have had glass hydors and have no real problems but they dont keep the temp as steady as id like.
