UPDATE Aug 2012: All of these Marina air pumps get noisier over time. I've also broken the nipple on every single pump I've owned when I've tried to remove the air line. The 200 is not quiet from the start. Even so, I buy one every so often because they are cheap and most of them start out quiet. I get the 100 because I want the air. Originally I gave this product 5 stars. Now just 3.
My guess is heat and poor quality plastic.
So after I made my first water change the cord broke. Very disapointed. I bought two and the other one is happily chugging away as silent as ever. But the faulty workmanship of the first one... Changed my 5 star rating to a three to reflect my disappointment with the first.
*Update: I just bought a new 55 gallon and unplugged the air pump to move it (did NOT try to unhook, it just required moving fully assembled) and I look down and the nozzle is broken. I never touched it after hooking it up that 1st time, yet it snapped. I'd like to buy a replacement but I fear this is going to happen again after reading the other reviews. I'll have to find a better built brand.
**Update:HOW TO FIX IF THE NOZZLE/NIPPLE BREAKS OFF:
The nozzle is only surrounded arbitrarily by the 3 corner shell (what you see from the outside). The shell serves no purpose mechanically. The nozzle extends well into the air pump. Simply break the 3 sided shell (plastic facade) off with some pliers and just slip the tubing back on. It's only an illusion that the nozzle is that short (the part sticking out). If you take the 4 little screws out and open it up you'll see what I mean. It's back up and running, same output.
UPDATE: March 17th. I haven't had anymore problems with the air pump since making the adjustment.
When the Amazon box first arrived, I took out the air pump, connected the airline, plugged it in and let it run. That was the last time I touched it.
Two weeks later, the air pump was still going strong but my plants were all dead. The two black nozzles where the (2 foot) airline connected were barely hanging on: snapped under the routine pressure of running 24/7.
From a previous (horrible) experience with an Aqua Culture air pump, I was already cautious about poor quality air pumps, so I made sure I connected the airline only once. There was no constant tugging or pulling on the plastic nozzles: I connected an airline once the first time it was plugged in.
The pump's longevity simply isn't there.
I uploaded a picture of the broken pump after 2 weeks:
They can refund my money, but they can't refund my dead plants.

Great pump, very quiet. More quiet than the whisper pump I have. Documentation is actually helpful! (more than just plug in airline and plug into wall). Read morePublished 23 days ago by David Schmidt
After about a year of working well, I heard the pump rattling around on the floor next to my aquarium. The recessed nozzle hookup just cracked clean off the unit. Read morePublished 2 months ago by M. R. Stodart
