I can only speak for the new ones, but its the best filter I've owned in 10 years of keeping fish without a question.

I second that, particularly in comparison with the Magnum cansiter I used to have which was one nightmare after another.

For a 55g tank, I think the Fluval 304 ($70 at Big Al's) is your best buy. If you have extra cash, get a UV like I did (another $80) and hook them together. Instant crystal clear water!

Just had the same problem with XP3 , the main seal had some slime on it , wiped off with corner of paper towel and all was well.

Lots of people see the XP's not fully fill with water when priming. Sometimes it corrects itself by burping through the return..sometimes not.

To avoid this complete, I fill it manually with water after I clean it, then snap the lid on so it's 100% full. Always starts, doesn't build up air inside.
I did both and my problems seem to have gone away. Thanks for the tips!
