I give the same review to all these filter cartridges…I love Marineland product since I have always had and have great results with these products as long as used within guidelines…these filters do their job Perfectly as long as you change them every 2 to 3 weeks…Big Als has the best price on this product …if your looking for a great filter use the Emperor and Penguin products for your main filter in small tanks and as a supplement in larger tanks….they add extra water filtration and do a terrific job.

The past few batches of the cartridges I bought appeared to be of poor quality for 2 reasons.
First, much of the charcoal granules fell out when I rinsed them before use. I realize some pieces will fall out when rinsing them out to get rid of the charcoal dust before the first use but the amount that came out was like half a teaspoon full.

Second, the fiber they use must be cheaper and thinner than in the past. Before I could rinse out the dirty cartridge and reuse it several times. Now, when I rinse a new one out after a week or two, the blue fiber filter falls apart and out comes the charcoal.

Poor value considering the cost.

    Comments about Filter Cartridge for Emperor 280/400 - Rite Size E - 4 pk:

    These pads do an excellent job of mechanical and chemical filtration and can be rinsed once or twice for reuse before being discarded. I have two Emperor 400 filters on my 75-gallon saltwater tank and one on my 14-gallon freshwater tank. But the 400 is a bit of overkill for the small tank--an Emperor 280 would probably be plenty. The pads fit both--two pads in each 400 and one pad in the 280.

      Filters work great but even better with black diamond carbon media. With 2 e filters and 2 median filters I have been going 2 months with crystal clear water and I had to rinse them once. That's with 4 six inch goldfish and a pleco in a 30gal tank and old emperor 400.

          Comments about Filter Cartridge for Emperor 280/400 - Rite Size E - 4 pk:

          I use at least one Emperor filter on each of my 10 aquariums and have been for years. They do exactly what they are intended for. I've read several reviews on here with bad ratings which is what prompted me to write about them. Too often, it's only the disgruntled folks that write reviews so I thought I'd chime in.

          Those people writing bad reviews claim that the filter floss falls apart. Well, that only happens when you try and clean it for re-use....which is NOT what these are intended for. It's like trying to recharge a non-rechargeable battery. C'mon people! These filters are designed to be "replaced" every month or so, and if you do that, they work perfectly. I've probably gone through over a 100 boxes of these things over the last few years and never had an issue with them. Oh, and when you pre-rinse them, do so with the filter floss side down. It's not a "design flaw" that carbon can tend to fall out of the cartridge if you hold it the other way, it's a "human brain flaw" for not understanding how gravity works.

          Don't let disgruntled corner cutters or uneducated people persuade you away from these simple and easy to use filters.

              Blue outside filter media is very thin and falls apart after about two - three weeks. The filter cartridges used to be great and you could re wash them and use them several times over. I called the company and received very poor customer service. They told me they had not changed the filter media but it was very obvious to me that they had. I would not recommend purchasing this type of filter and media.

                  I have to drive over 60 Miles for the nearest pet store to get these and they are out of stock most of the time. This site made it simple and easy to get them right to my door at a fair price. The product works great no complaints at all.

                            The blue fiber that they currently use on the filters is differently different than what has been used before. The current filters do not last more than about 2 weeks before the blue membrane begins to really fall apart. I called the company and asked if they has changed material, they said no but it is very obvious that they have by my experience and others who have written a review before me.
