Default Feedback on TOM 800 Powerhead

Just bought a return pump today.
The brand is TOM 800.
Its small, and the flowrate is 3200L/H.
Power consumption is 34.5W - 25.2W
AC200V / 240V
50Hz

The flowrate is just nice for my 3ft tank. Hope anyone using this return pump could give their feedback and comments.

It's a very good pump, quiet, powerful but vibration is a little bit strong!

Used to have one for my 2ft setup, quite satisfied with the performance.
But i feel it may not be sufficient for a 3ft.

Thanks for the feedback but mine runs in my 3ft tank well.
Any idea how long the pump would last?
Also another factor is the low wattage which would save quite lot of $ in the long run.

I have been using this pump for a long time...at one stage was even using it as a return pump for my 6 footer...actually strong enough. but now use it as a power head in that tank.
Where can you find a Japanese made (not China, Taiwan) pump for that kind of price...One of the pumps have been running for over 3 years and it sill works fine.
Real value for money.

I am having TOM Drive 400....using it for my return pump for a 4 ft tank. the flow is quite okay.

Cautious: from the packaging it writes that it is not supposed to use it for Salt Water.

But since buy liao, will use it anyway.
