Positive aspects of the product (pros): great price, very quiet in my 30 gal
Cons: none

 
The one great feature is the adjustable air flow, I had another power head and it did not have an airator built in. This eliminates your air pump and air wands, stones etc. Very low maintenance, and even better I picked it up on sale a couple of months ago for $14.99. I would recomend to anyone who wants to try it.
