Cons: Backlight faded to black in 6 months making the unit completely useless. A real ripoff at just under $50. Replaced it with an NZXT sentry which has the same functions plus a power switch for the backlight for almost half the price of this one
Cons: When I first got this on my new computer, the display was very bright, almost annoyingly so. My computer runs 24/7, and after only a few weeks the display was noticeably dimmer, and it has continued to fade. Now, at 10 months out, the display is so dim that it can barely be seen in our normal roo...
Summary: This would be an ideal fan controller but for the LED backlight issue and the compulsory temp sensor connections. After 6 months of use, one cannot read the panel by ambient light because the backlight illumination is too dim.
Pros: Attractive controller panel, settings easily modified, sufficiently bright out of the box, does what its supposed to do.
Cons: The LED brightness cannot be adjusted, and the control panel becomes unreadable within a few months as the LED backlight progressively dims. Even if you don't intend to use the device for temperature monitoring, you must attach the 4 temp leads or the alarms never cease.
Summary: If you are getting a case with a lot of cooling fans, this is perfect to manage them all. It splits the power instead of having to run so many lines to each fan. Only thing I would do to make it better is for it to tie up with USB or some other interface and have software to manage alarms and...
Summary: Easy to install, poor and confusing multi-lingual directions. Hard to adjust fan speeds and yes, the tape doesn't hold the heat sensors very well. If you have multiple cooling fans, it is a very adequate controller.
Summary: Wile you can adjust the fans, the temp sensors are a pain to get on properly (find a place close to the real heat) The tape is a joke. I did not use the temp sensors. I just needed the fan control any way to add more fans to my case.
Summary: I ended up taking it out because the Corsair 600T case it was mounted in has a built-in dial type fan controller. The temperature alarm function would have been useful if I could get a good reading on anything.
Pros: Looks cool; Fits neatly in a single drive bay; Construction appears solid -- no cheap plastic parts here; Works as a fan controller, so long as your fans use a 3-pin plug and not a 4-pin.
Cons: Doesn't remember fan settings between reboots; setting speeds for four individual chassis fans at 100 RPMs per button push gets tedious quickly; external thermometer leads don't give useful readings -- when my 580 GTX went from 45C to 80C, the controller read anywhere from 30C to 36C. Same for th...
