2 out of 5 eggsWorks, but poor build quality

Pros: Once it's working, it's problem free.

Cons: It was a bear to install. Until the unit was insulated with electrical tape where it contacted the case, it would spark.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Serves its purpose & the soft blue lights look awsome with my build.

Cons: I noticed that the dial for Fan 1 was pushed in further than the rest & a little stiff to operate prior to installation. I took a chance on it & thankfully it works.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost perfect

Pros: Pretty design.
Easy to read.
Comes as promised.
All aluminum touch.
Lights around knob dim based on current power output on channel

Cons: Doesn't fit into my case without having to cut metal off the slot of my case. All other DVD players fit normally without modification to my case.
Knob could be a bit more sturdy and industrious.

Other Thoughts: Problems aren't really a bit deal. It will just eat up some time or manliness.

3 out of 5 eggsNice, but Could be Better

Pros: Bright blue LED, Good Fan Control

Cons: The Molex Extender that comes with it was a piece of garbage. When hooking up the molex power source the board bent a lot and it made my heart jump. It needs to be more sturdy than it is.

Other Thoughts: I'll update if anything changes.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great for COOLER MASTER fans and fits perfectly in my NZXT M59 case without any sort of modifications to it. Comes with extension, knobs turn smoothly and LED on them go brighter as you can increase power. Turns all Fans off including the LED on them, as well as the light on the Knobs itself.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I am not a fan of touch screen Fan Controllers, and didn't want to spend too much on a manual fan controller.

I have this in my NZXT M59 case, and it fit in there like i glove. I did not have any issues with fitment, and required no modifications. It is powering my 2 Case Fans, along with 2 COOLER MASTER R4-L2R-20AC-GP 120mm Blue LED Case cooler. Dims LEDs on the fans as well, and O get no LED flickering.

As others have stated the board is flexible, especially when you plug that power cable in, but i don't feel like that was enough to knock an egg off. Overall i love it.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent for the price

Pros: The controller works great. The LED's in the knobs are not very bright but they are just right. They control my 4 80mm rosewell blue LED HDD fans and LED's just fine. I haven't noticed any drop in voltage either so that's good.

Cons: The bracket that it is in fits in a 5.25 in bay but not the way you think. The company really should think about theses things when the advertise them. The fan controller is a few mm to wide so I had to install in by going into the back of my case. Then in order to mount the controller I had to sink the controller back about 1/2 into my 5.25" bay. Its annoying because it makes may case look strange now.

The board that you plug into flexes far to much for my liking when you plug in the 4-pin molex. I was afraid i was gonna break it. The paint on the controller for the knobs comes off very easy.

Other Thoughts: The controller works great but PC CORP really over looked the size and quality of the product when they made this. Also PC CORP you really should think about your description and dimensions for this product. I like it but am far from satisfied with it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It controls fans as if it was made to! Has nice blue leds behind the knobs. The leds grow in intensity as you turn the knobs. This product is very well built! It even comes with fan extension cables.

Cons: Does not spit out free money or candy.

3 out of 5 eggsworks well...

Pros: Knobs light up, controls fan speed, can shut fans off. Works well enough for its intended purpose.

Cons: Connector and soldering for fan wires are cheap/poorly made. Unit was slightly larger than the drive bay, had to sand down the edges of the controller and slightly bend cage to get it to fit.

Other Thoughts: As said time and time again, you get what you pay for. Not a bad controller but you can do better than this one. *Didn't buy this from newegg.

2 out of 5 eggsBad build quality.

Pros: Looks very nice and works well after being repaired.

Cons: Very poor build quality. Others have mentioned it being a tight fit, I actually had to sand down the sides for it to fit into the bay on my FT-02 case. One of the knobs was also soldered on crooked and needed to be re-soldered (it was sideways enough to rub against the knob opening).
