Agree when the new models are now reaching the price of some of the other manufacturers I would take a hard look elsewhere (as I was before this purchase). I do like the metal stand on this that makes for a ton of room underneath (versus Waterbox and RedSea) but at $3,000 would look at SCA as well.I agree, I posted earlier about being fortunate enough to get one of the last of the older models in stock...well a week later I got a call from Live Aquaria that their stock count was wrong and would not be able to ship the order. Live Aquaria was really cool about it, called me to explain and gave some in-store credit to soften the mistake. Top notch customer service at least.
I talked to Pro Star about the new features afterward and I just don't see the value in their new pricing model. At $3K you might as well go all-in on a Waterbox or RedSea. Not to mention all the problems with the rimless tanks lately, how good will the warranty support from Prostar be? At $2K it was a great deal and worth accepting a little more risk, at least for me. At $3K...I ended up going the SCA150 and custom stand route.
Your tank is coming along great btw!
So far ProClear has been really responsive to me. Hopefully I won't need to call them ever again.
Thanks for the comments!
