Positive aspects of the product (pros): Cheap, lots of air, small
Cons: Noisy

 
For the price, it seems to work well. Mine developed an annoying buzz after a few days' use though.

I have an XP-10 for a 10-gallon tank. It will sure churn up the water if I put the entire airflow through one air stone, I have put it on a triple gang valve to turn it down and provide pressure relief by cracking an unused valve open.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Inexpensive, Powerful airflow
Cons: Not as sleek but who cares, A little louder than others

 
I placed mine on a sponge I have for cleaning the glass within my cabinet, and I cannot hear it until I open the cabinet door. Have no complaints so far.

Good, cheap airstone. Cost effective, but only for those with a solid stand to keep out the sound.
