Fluval 403 hands down. Nearly 30 years n counting. Only replaced media, a couple impellers and a few o-rings. Flow is still way strongHowdy,
The members of this site have a huge experience with equipment. Many of us have had fish tanks for years, some for decades. Low-quality sucks, we want equipment that lasts. When we set up a tank, we're in it for the long run!
What are your favorite brands, what can you rely on? I am not asking for the newest gadget you bought, not for the set-up with the fanciest extras. I also don't want to know what sucks. I want to hear from those of you who have been running one piece of equipment for at least 3 years and would purchase it again if it ever broke (however, hoping it will last for many more years).
Here is mine:
Eheim 2211, run-time 16 years, still counting
Bring it on!
I know this question might inspire a brand war. But I am counting on your cooperation in keeping this a positive thread. Please only state positive experiences and refrain from negative comments on other member's experiences. Thank you

Had three AC110 over the years (previously aquaclear 500 i think ?), each kept for 3 or more years without any problems
My eheim heaters are going strong still, each are 5 years or more
Had an eheim pro2 canister for many years , it was very silent, leak free , etc, but eventually everything started going wrong, still i had at least 5-6 good years with it
