What is the best heater?

I'm sure I'm not the only one that has had issues with heaters that you can't tell where you're setting the temperature and fail in around a year or so. What is the most reliable heater manuf. out there? I have a 20g tall tank that I just sold my fish to my LFS that I'm starting from scratch with and I'd like to possibly breed fish in it so I want to make sure I'm precise. I'm looking forward to hearing all of your opinions.

My fluval M series heater keeps a really consistent temperature, and it was cheap...

greetings.

i have a 200 W Akvastabil heater, it has worked flawlessly for about a year now, the only tricky part about it is changing the temperature on it, it isn't accurate anymore so i have to change it a bit and come back a few hours to see what temp the water is now. but it is compact if you compare it to the models in the trade today with the same amount of Watts.

sincerely,
nereksnad.

Eheim jäger, best heaters for the money. They will last 10+ years easy.

I second that! Mine was secondhand and it's still the best heater I own. Still can't believe I got it for $3, though.
