Pros: The Fermonster 7 gal. provides plenty of headspace so a blow off tube shouldn't be needed, and I like the transparency along with the gallon markers. The lid with the gasket gives an air tight seal, as does the hole with a #10 stopper. Cons: However I am giving only 4 stars because of the thin gauge plastic, making the Fermonster susceptible to damage if not handled carefully. This makes the harness a necessity for moving, and you'll also need the wrench to remove the lid.
I really, really like this fermentor and I am really sad that I spent money on a glass carboy. This is the only fermentor I currently use now. It is plastic which kind of stinks, but it is light and very durable. I have been using this same one for 2 or 3 years now and I brew about 15-25 beers a year in it.
Buy the wrench! It can be VERY challenging to get the lid off if you give it a good twist shut. I like the volume and head space...it works perfectly for me as I make 11-gal batches. Plenty of head space. Easy to clean. I agree with the other commenter that to get five stars, we need a simple carrying harness. It's especially difficult to pick up from the floor.
Purchased the 7 gallon FerMonster as an upgrade to my 6.5 gallon fermenting bucket. I am very pleased with it. Watching the yeast develop was worth the price. Due to it's light weight you can easily shake up cleaning/sanitizing solution. The red lid can be difficult to unscrew if you "crank it down" , but the #10 bung hole allows you to easily grab a sample or trasnfer with your siphon. I highly recommend purchasing some form of harness to handle the container when it's filled with fermenting beer. The reason I'm only giving 4 stars is that I think the fermenter should be sold with it's own carrying harness.
