Personally I love the Jagers. They are great reliable heaters. I know of people who are running Jagers that are 20 years old and they are still just as reliable as the day they were made. I can't really suggest a second sine I only buy Jagers. :)

I don't have any Jagers but have heard nothing but rave reviews about them I have been switching to stealths and love em. I also picked up a rena smart heater and have been very impressed with that.Sailor

Jaeger by all means IMO are the best most accurate and reliable. Second that I have any experience with is Stealth.

I would put the Stealth first and Jager second. The stealth has a few great points to it:
1. Plastic, so can not be shattered
2. Lifetime warranty8 tanks running now:
1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.

Jagers and stealths... I'd go with a 150-200 watt on a 37 gallon...75 Gallon South Cichlid: Tiger Oscar and Jack Dempsey
55 Gallon GT Tank: 1 Male GT and 8 Giant Danio
20 Gallon Long: Waiting for eco-complete planted red substrate that has been delayed 2 weeks due to weather.

Never had the Jager yet but also nothing but good things are said about them. I do have the stealths and love them. I must have replaced heaters 4 times to each tank in less than two years when using all the other types.
One nice thing about sleath is you need not unplug them when doing your water changes and I believe jager has the same feature of auto shut-offs.
