    Universal Plastic Developing Tank with 2 Reels is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tank doesn't leak when agitated! I am a photography student developing film for the first time. The plastic reels that come with this tank are extremely easy to roll the film onto, considerably easier than stainless steel reels. The lid seals on very tightly due to use of a gasket and it doesn't leak chemicals when agitated. The construction and quality of this product is very high. Also, with the tank only holding about 20 ounces of liquid it requires less chemistry then some other universal tanks by about 4-6 ounces. I have developed 4 rolls of film with this tank so far and it has worked perfectly each time and results have been consistent. I am glad I chose this tank over all the other plastic tanks.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best I've tried I use this mainly for 120 roll film development. I like it the best of the 3 brands I've tried - (also Paterson, Yankee). The reel has an improved design, with broad plates replacing the small, triangular tabs at the film insertion point. This gives the film much more support during loading, very important with 120. Also, it has matching broad tabs where your thumbs rest to walk the film on the reel -- fewer thumbprints on the film. I also prefer the screw on type daylight lid of the Samigon (and Yankee), it has a much more secure feel than the Paterson. This one was a little fussy to seat, with a tendency to cross thread; but once seated, it was rock solid. Almost zero leaks with the friction fit cover on, again a nice change from the leaky Paterson

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from cheap tank I think this gets good reviews because people dev 5 rolls and everything is hunky dory. I've had this 6 months and it leaks everywhere. It's gasket is very hard and the threading is really poor.I was very careful with it, but the theading goes bad and chemical will leak everyhwhere. Reels are Ok, but any plastic reel will load is if it isn't wet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the best if your on a tight budget.. However its been worth it when i dont think about my reciept. it feels way lighter than the patterson tanks also less bulkier. and you can never go wrong with those super easy to use reels which is the only reason i got this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remarkable reel design. While of good quality, the tank itself is indistinguishable from the Omega universal developing tank. What sets Samigon apart is the reel design. You can simply push a 36-frames roll all the way in, without even having to walk the film in by ratcheting the reel halves. If you already own an Omega tank, consider buying a set of Samigon reels (Mfr #ESA325), as they are fully interchangeable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy-Peazy! New to B&W film development? I was too. I spent many hours digging around the 'net looking for the correct equipment, the correct developer, the correct everything. After all this research I still didn't have a clue as to which development tank to buy so I took a shot and picked this one up. It's fantastic. It does everything you'll need it to do and it does it easily. The plastic reels are easy to load (honestly, that was my biggest fear - that the reels would be a * to load) and the top is watertight. An amazing product an amazing price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good choice I've just started developing my own B&W 120 and 35mm film at home. This is a great tank, especially for those starting out. I was going to go with a different tank/reel combination, however the two reels included in this tank have the larger built-in guide tabs making it much easier to load the film. It allows me to process either one roll of 120 film or two 35mm rolls with the two included adjustable reels. I don't believe you can do a 120 roll AND 135 roll at the same time, I'm pretty sure the tank is too short for that. My only complaint is that the top cap does not screw-on or lock-on, its only a rubber cap so if you don't hold it on really tight it can leak during agitation. It's also slightly bulky so make sure you have a large+ changing bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Performance/Solid Value With the necessary practice (required of all reel-based developing tanks),loading the film is straight-forward and the developing process goes smoothly and without leaks. The tank seems to be well made and represents a solid value.
