Hey thinking about buying these power heads for my 75 gallon setup. Any one using them and i see there are apparently two versions with different controllers? Anyone know what the difference is? Thanks.

Avoid anything that isn't a PP or SW series.. SW is just the newer and PP is basically last years model..
I have 2 x PP8 in my 80G (4ftx2ft) tank but feel that the flow is a bit too powerful/directed and think that 4 x PP4's would have been a better choice (if I must stay with Jebao)..

I usually have no problem recommending Jebao products with a disclaimer that they can fail sometimes.. Many have good luck but it happens.. My PP pumps have been going on 2 or 3 years now with only being cleaned once.. No problems at all..
Older versions were junk but PP/SW seem good..

I do wish the flow was more spread out though and not so directed..

I will probably upgrade at some point but IMO for the price you can't beat them..

yes seems there is a new "OW" series on fish-street... make sure you bring your "Chingrish to Engrish to English" dictionary if you try to make sense of anything written on that site..:fun5:

Seems they just allow more rotation of the whole body not and claim more "durable/longer lasting" design/construction..

They do claim that they are now using a 4 pole motor.
