3 brands of powerheads

I got a little lost between 3 types powerheads.
Can anyone explain what is the different and the additional features between them?
1. Gyre xf250
2. icecube gyre 3K
3.glamorca 3k*

There is a big difference in price.

They are the basically the same...
Difference basically comes down to a brand and their markup

Don't know about the icecap as that is not available in the UK but the Glamorca has less flow than the 250, less control options and you can't hook two up to the same controller as far as I'm aware.

They are a lot cheaper than a 250 so if you only need 1 pump might be a good option but I have never owned one so can't speak for reliability, noise etc.

The gyre 350 is out now in the UK, I have two and they are far superior to the 250, much much quieter so you may want to wait for these to come out before deciding

Can't speak to the differences. There is a new series of Gyre coming out soon (in the US, believe it is already available elsewhere) so, if you end up going that route, you might want to wait for the new series.
