Comes with peace of mind featured

Installation and Operation After owning a many heaters in the past, I find that the Jager has the best build quality of any. Its thick pyrex glass resists sharrting if bumped or dropped accidentally. It has a durable plastic cap with an ingenius way to adjust the temperature (and compensate for error). There is a blue dial that surrounds the top edge of the heater where you can adjust the temperature to your liking. While my heater has very little error (I have it set at 79 and keeps my tank at 79.2) there is a device on the top (red part) that allows you to fine tune the thermostat so that I can tell you precisely what the desired temperature is. (Just be sure to have a thermometer handy)


Performance vs. Expectations I am very impressed with the build quality of this heater. Combined with a temperature alarm, I never have to worry about a crashed tank due to heater failure!


Value for money Considring these heaters sell for the same price as others, I don't see why anyone whould choose another brand


Customer Support Don't think I will ever have to contact customer support about this heater


Liked about it Thick Glass
Accurate and waterproof thermostat with compensator
Comes with high quality suction cups


Didn't like It is a bit long.

Comfort with technology! featured

Installation and Operation The package is very neat, it clearly shows the product detail you'll need from outside the box. The product leaflet inside will give you additional details in installation, set-up suggestions (calibration of the equipment most importantly) and electrical safety. The product doesn't really require much maintenance as long as you've gone through the product insert for proper installation, the heater comes with a holder and suction cups to keep the heater in place. Cleaning is as easy as 1,2,3. Unplug, pull it up (heater will glide up without moving it's holder, then wipe clean. After the calibration part, it's smooth sailing by then.


Performance vs. Expectations Though the product boasts about it's features, technicaly materials that were utilized with this product are topnotch! I was expecting a +/-.5 of a degree in Celcius, that could have been nice. It's kind of a little off even after several calibrations, had to make trial and error. I ended up subtracting 3deg C to the actual temperature I needed, (If you're setting it at 24deg C, set it at 21deg C) your thermometer reading then will end up at 24deg C. The heater does shuts off when it reads the temperature you require (-3deg C from the actual) and turns on again when heating is called for.


Value for money Very happy to have purchased the brand, I had worked with three different heater brands before and ended up with a tank of seafood soup! They had no systematic calibration instructions with them. Now I'm sticking with Jager-Eheim brand.


Customer Support I never needed customer support from this product, it's been five years now and never had any problems with it. Like I said, all you need is to read the product insert, no need for technical assistance.


Liked about it I love how it looks, very classy and practical. Very good craftmanship, top grade materials and it does what it needs to do.


Didn't like As long as you've played with it a little bit when it comes to calibration, it's gonna be no problem at all.
The calibration button was hard to pull out, but easy to push in. Temperature reading was off by +/-3deg C not +/-.5deg C as claimed. Even if you had followed their calibration instruction you'll end up +/-3deg C.

Best heater on the market

Installation and Operation Right out of the box, this thing is ready to go, kind of like plug and play! It is very easy to calibrate and the suction cups are very strong to hold the heater up. I check all the temp gauges with a expensive temp gauge and this jager heater is tied with my 400 dollar chiller for being as close to the water temp as possible.


Performance vs. Expectations this is the best heater ever!!! went through 4 others heaters before i wised up and bought this one.


Value for money +++++ extremely worth my money


Customer Support no i have not dealt with the company, but why need to with a awesome product.


Liked about it accurate, sleek style, affordable


Didn't like longer than most heaters, almost too strong for the recommend tank size,the power coard it too small

Worth the money!

Installation and Operation Installation is standard for a heater. Once you have calibrated the temperature dial setting, you can set it and forget it! These heaters are durable!


Performance vs. Expectations Performs as expected. Put it in the tank, plug it in, for the instruction to calibrate, set it and it keeps the temperature where you set it!


Value for money These heaters are worth every penny! One of if not the best heater on the market!


Customer Support Never had a problem with them, so I haven't had a need to contact them.


Liked about it Pros:
Durable
Accurate once calibrated
Reliable


Didn't like Cons:
The first model I purchased was not completely submersible. However, the two newest smaller wattage heaters that I have purchased are both completely submersible.

Eheim heater

General I have two of these on my frag/growout system, where there is not the redundancy of a controller to monitor temperature. I had issues with another controller long ago, where the thermostat was stuck on and brought my temp up to dangerous levels before I caught it. Now, I set my controller to a degree higher than the internal thermostat to ensure that there won't be an issue like this. In any system where you can't or don't use a backup, the best quality heaters are worth their weight in gold. We spend hundreds/thousands on livestock, so why skimp on a $30 heater that could fail?


Liked about it Clean, simple, reliable, high quality


Didn't like Big size

Great line of heaters

Installation and Operation I have three Jager heaters of various wattages, including the 200W. I've used them for years with absolutely no negatives. While temperature control fidelity isnt perfect, it's as good as you're going to get with a simple heater such as this. Highly recommended.


Performance vs. Expectations Works well, seems to warm water quickly. It's not wise to rely on the temperature control built into the unit if you expect a +/- 3 degree fidelity, but it can be used (better to have a more specific temperature controller).


Value for money Great product, as one of the best heaters available I think they're a great value for the money.


Liked about it Nice construction, quality build, easy to use, and the later versions are fully submersible. I think these are great heaters and they're all I'll consider to use these days.


Didn't like As already mentioned, I don't the the thermostats are very accurate. But, that's true of all heaters, so nothing to be taken away from this product specifically.
