    I got my MP40 with the price drop, not sure how I feel about the new one coming out. The noise doesn't bother me much, so the $100 discount was worth it IMO. Although I am glad to see they are continuing to better their product. Very glad to see it will work with pre-existing pumps via the wireless feature.

    While I don't smoke anything, the rest I can certainly understand.
    I think it involves how we choose to spend out disposable money.
    My corals and fish aren't complaining, and I'm fairly happy with my Reef.

    I think my Jebaos are some of the best purchases I have made. No problems with them whatsoever.

    I won't knock anything I haven't tried, but vortechs are pretty impressive. The flow pattern is much different than koralia and jaebo.

    I am not saying vortech is a bad product. If i had enough money to buy anything i wanted, I would probably have them.

    Considering all the advances other companies have made towards creating an equivalent product, not saying they're there yet, over the time the Vortechs have been out, I'm shocked to see noise and output as the only updates.

    On a side note to EcoTech, get someone at AI to fix your yellow lightning storms. They've looked ridiculous from the day the Radion was released.
