Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money This is not what I expect from a company like Tetra. The plastic tabs on the cover broke when I first assembled it. My old style Whisper lasted for years and was a much better design. The carbon insert's housing does not stay closed and are flimsy at best, not to mention replacement cartridges are WAY more expensive than the old style. The plastic is much thinner and can't understand how Tetra put its name on such a disappointing product. It is also does not whisper; it is loud enough to hear at the other end of my house. Please Tetra, make your products with the quality we have come to expect from your your company.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOISY JUNK I thought Tetra products were suppose to be good products, boy was I wrong. I bought a tank kit that has a ' Wisper ' EX20 power filter. Wisper should be replaced with 'Extremely Noisy' EX20. We can hear the thing throughout most of the house. Terrible, Terrible, Terrible. This filter was noisy from the very start. I will be replaceing it with a different brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from XP-70 is junk...should not have made it passed the drawing stage. Less than a year old. Plastic Motor mounting clips fail due to vibration fatigue. siphon tube and motor asembly slide passed vertical position resulting in separation of rubber connector at waterline which can turn into a BIG MESS Poor design....onceTretra unloads current inventory i doubt they will be making many more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very costly I have owed and replaced three EX filtration systems in less than two years. I'm done buying Tetra products. Each one was noisy, and each one's motors stopped working.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Noisy The first two months were OK. The noise level was alright. Then it started to rattle and the noise level was to much. I could hear it over the TV. The filter motor and parts must be made of cheap parts. Definitely not like they used to make them. I will be buying a new filter and it won't be a whisper. Waste of money

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I replaced a previous Tetra filter unit that I had for 5 years but was finding it difficult to find replacement filters and the motor gasket was wearing out. Figured I would replace with same brand since I was very happy with last filter. New filter is much noisier and requires cleaning twice as often. Translates to more filters and more of my time let alone that I can't read a book in the same room as it is loud. I will definitely replace.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Noisy I expected a MUCH quieter filter. I will return this one and try one more time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was good overall... I have an EX30 Filter, and it does a great job (much better than the filter that came with my tank). It is very good at keeping my tank clean. PROS: Good at filtering and keeping tank clean. CONS: after owning it for a while, it gets noisy. Has to be cleaned more often than i like.
