Questions about new canister filter

I have been thinking about replacing my aquaclear 500 with a Marineland Magnum 350 Pro system. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this beast?

My main concerns are:

1.) How quiet is it compared to an Aquaclear 500
2.) How reliable are they
3.) Do they require much maintenance (impeller replacement etc)
4.) How effective are they for water polishing

Unfortunately there is no way for me to get Eheim parts here in a hurry in teh event of a pump failure so I can't safely go that route. There are many marineland dealers around that could have replacements parts hand delivered to me within 8 hours tho.
