    I set up my aquaclear 110 and it makes NO noise at all. I get up in the morning and look to make sure it is still on. And I only sleep about 8 feet away from it. I am a true convert. Amazing.

    Welcome to the dark side....muahahaha. No really...I love mine for the same reason (and many others). My cat's automated drinking fountain is louder than my aquaclear :p

    You are lucky...I went through two 110s and both were a bit too noisy for the location of my tank. Though it isn't exactly loud, it isn't silent like my canisters. I loved having one though, great filter it is. All other ACs that I have (20, 2x 50) are perfectly silent.

    It is a nice filter! I have 2 and one 70.
    The 70 started making some noise, but when you keep something heavy on the top lid there is no noise any more

    Yes it is. It has a fairly wide profile but it is well worth the extra space!
