Description:
Powerful motor pumps drive precision Needle Wheel Rotors to introduce large amounts of air and water into the skimmer body. This is done without compromising continuous delivery and velocity due to the turbulence reducing bubble plate chamber. The result is a consistent foam head and nutrient extraction. Vertex™ IN-Series Skimmers represent the Ultimate solution to noise reduction. Rotors engineered with the incredible strength of Rare Earth Phosphor Magnets and the frictionless ride of ceramic shafts, polished to an exceptionally high gloss, ensure that the entire impeller assembly spins with amazingly nominal resistance and vibration.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Easy to use and adjust
Cons: none really

 
I've been using this for almost two weeks now. It only had a 4 day break-in period before it started working. Its easy to adjust and made the water in my tank prefectly clear after 5 days.

If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
