5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: Almost everything about this is a pro:
1. Can support all the fans in my case (5)
2. Can change the color to match my case lighting.
3. Blends in great with my case.
4. Easy install and this is coming from someone whose never used one.
5. The minimum being 40%. Despite others saying it's a con I disagree. Why would you want your fans below that??? Are purposely trying to overheat your PC? I think this is an idiot proof design and like it. I say it's a pro because that means you can change rpm %'s by a finer and slower amount because the range is shorter (If you don't get it compare it to zooming in and out on Google Earth. If you were looking in a town would you want your slider range to be from Space to as close as it can go or county to as close as it can go; with the latter option you can zoom in more finely and slower and not accidentally zooming too far out or in.)

Cons: As nothing is perfect I do have a few complaints.
1. Ever since installing it seems to interfere with my headphone jack which is right above this causing buzzzing sounds as if my PC is trying to talk to me and I believe it's because there is no sheilding above the sliders on the inside.
2. The no sheilding above the sliders, just gave me the feeling that it was a cheap product as sheilding would have been easy to incorporate.

Other Thoughts: Other than my computer occasionally sounding like a transformer trying to talk to me it is a great product and recommend it to anyone who would like manual control of their fans. It is definitely better than software options because you can adjust fan speeds without having to minimize any windows or anything else, just move your hand up or down (unless your PC is on the floor or in a cabinet which as a person who does repairs and maintenance on computers I recommend you put it on top of a desk).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat fan controller

Pros: --The sliders are a bit hard to slide, so it makes it easier to make less mistakes, also allows better precision
--LEDs aren't too bright, but they let you know it's on and where it is in the dark
--Easy to set up
--Fan numbers on the cords are clearly marked so you know which is which instead of having to figure it out

Cons: None that I can think of.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality Control

Pros: ???? Absolutely none!

Cons: Very poor quality power cables. Extremely disappointed by the craftsmanship. I would expect NZXT to have far better quality control. Potentially dangerous (see below).

Other Thoughts: Had the controller installed for a good six weeks. Got another optical drive & decided to relocate fan controller. Upon trying to remove the fan controller I noticed that one of the 3 pin power cables was not functioning (half the upper 120mm fans were not spinning anymore). Upon closer inspection I found one of the 3-pins was completely disconnected. I disconnected it from the molex power cable (from the PSU), pushed the pin back into place & reconnected the power source. I then reconnected the PSU plug & tried to boot. PC would come on for a second & then turn off. After that the PC wouldn't turn on at all unless I disconnected the power & reconnected it. So I disconnected the fan's power cable from the power source, booted up the PC and it went through the POST w/o a problem. After a few moments I noticed smoke coming out of the fan unit! I immediately switched the power off & completely removed the fan unit from the PC. Haven't had the time to make sure the MB wasn't damaged, or the RAM for that matter. Will test tonight.
I generally leave the PC on all the time. Had the computer been running while I was enjoying the 4th of July fireworks, the house could have potentially burned to the ground! DO NOT purchase this unit unless you plan on somehow permanently securing the molex pins into the connectors (super glue or some other type of fastening material such as gorilla glue).

4 out of 5 eggsGood product

Pros: Works as intended, looks pretty good.

Cons: had to knock off an egg for lack of ability to actually turn fans off completely. Not sure if any other fan controllers can do it but its something i would like to see in a fan controller and i was a little disappointed when i realized i couldn't.

Other Thoughts: For those of you who are bummed out about not being able to turn the LEDs off, why dont you try holding the button down for 5 seconds :P

5 out of 5 eggsNice and easy

Pros: Setup is ridiculously easy.

Cables are long enough to span the largest cases.

Sliders provide enough resistance for the perfect fan speed.

Different color LEDs to match case LEDs.

Molex powered.

Cons: The molex connectors that came with the controller were bent so it took a little while for me to force the cables to connect together. Nothing to dock an egg on, however.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: Easy to install and the cables are long enough to reach anywhere in the case.

Cons: I only wish that it could turn fans completely off, otherwise I've found nothing wrong with it!
