I used this one before...

Actually I find that it has quite alot of space (for me) to put media in.

But what I dont like is that the hose will have dirt inside very fast. Might be due to the low flowrate.

And the flowrate actually reduces very fast over time.

I noticed my flowrate seems to be dipping after using it for only 3 weeks.

And the hose is extremely difficult to wash as well. So it was either wash the hose, or get a new hose.

I'm not sure if the Eden501 would give similar problems as they have about the same design...
