4 out of 5 eggsNot bad for the basics

Pros: 50w/ch, parallel throttle controls for approximate equal speed control. Direct 3-pin fan interface. Comes packaged with 3-pin extension cables. Packaged extremely well. Variable LED color schemes for matching various accents.

Cons: Knobs are slightly canted. This appears to be by design. LEDs brighten, or dim with fan speed increase or decrease. High-volume fans are hard to control at low speeds. 48w fans do not even operate below 25% throttle speed.

Other Thoughts: I've actually recommended this product in another review. One thing to keep in mind, the color schemes are controlled by jumper configurations on the PCB on the backside of the panel where the fan headers are. This is not mood lighting, it's themed accent lighting. This controller would probably be great for controlling clusters of low wattage fans.
I gave this product 4 eggs only because the lack of fine control was a little disappointing.
I bought a Yeeco DC motor Speed control driver board that is 3-35v @ 5A. to run one 48w 120mm fan in another build. I found the fan control to be far more fluid and precise. Lamptron could use a similar design for this controller, but it would remove the throttle mechanism. Regardless, there should be more 50w+ fan controllers on the market.

4 out of 5 eggsCool Beans

Pros: It's a really nice touch on any computer, and it provides good control over fan speeds. Nice LED features, easy install. Took me maybe 15 mins in all. It's cool beans

Cons: It's honestly not worth it. The sliders are crooked and fall off easily.

Other Thoughts: It's a fantastic product but it's not necessary. I wouldn't recommend a PC fan controller to anyone. But I guess if you really want it, then this is a good choice.

3 out of 5 eggsAlmost great!

Pros: 50W per channel, one of the few controllers that can handle that kind of volt/amp needs.
Looks great! Color changing a bonus!
Great feel turning up and down fans.
Completely shuts off fans in the full down position. Great for those super high CFM fans that aren't needed all the time.

Cons: Slider nobs are crooked...horribly crooked between 20 and 30 degrees. Had to pull them off, break the glue, and reassemble them properly.

Jumpers are improperly labeled for color biggy, there's just a handful, play with it before you mount it in the case to save time.

Components held on only by the soldered connections and therefore many camp bent but the product still worked fine but concerned about them weakening.

Fan jumper came off easily, was able to slide it back on and use it and figure I won't be moving the computer around so no big deal.

Other Thoughts: I feel like this controller was well engineered and with some sticktoativeness on the execution of it this could be one of the best controllers around!

Overall, knowing I can readjust the slider nobs so they are straight and watching for the things I mentioned above, I would buy another.

3 out of 5 eggsTHE ONLY REVIEW YOU''L NEED

Pros: Choosing between 7 different led colors which went great with my Thermaltake Level 10 case that has 4' 140mm fans that changes several different colors. Also Looks sleek and was easy to plug in and install.

1. Price
2. 7 different changeable colors you more than likely wont get to use because to change them you would need to pull out the fan controller & access the back of it to switch out jumpers to change them. Would have been so much nicer had you been able to flick a switch to do so but NO! you must remove the entire fan controller to access the back of it to change the color vi jumper. So for me and the way my system is built this is not a option. Stuck with 1 color
3. The 4 knobs on the front will come shipped to you crookit has mention in other ppls cons below. I had read this myself before buying and what would you know that when i received mines, my knobs on the front were all crookit. YOU CANT NOT bend them in place or they will break for certain. Only positive i made from this was the fact that i was only using 2 of the controllers so i removed the other knobs which are removable to make it more unnoticeable. You could also set your knobs where you want them and just remove all the knobs to make it completely obsolete. Unacceptable for $59.99
4. The instruction book tells you what jumpers you need to place where to get what colors. Its completely wrong and you'll get some other color than what it tells you when you go by the book.. All 7 are there... But not where the manual tells you they are. Botched manual

Other Thoughts: Only buy this product if you absolutely need it because it makes the theme of your case. Don't be bought by the 7 different led's because as said before you would need to pull out the unit and switch out jumpers to change the colors.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Product

Pros: This product looks great with any LED colors (or no colors), it does its job and does it well, and its built to last.

Cons: Price, but you're definitely getting what you paid for in this product.

Other Thoughts: I'm considering buying a second one when I upgrade to a full tower case, this product is just THAT reliable and aesthetically pleasing.

5 out of 5 eggsGood stuff

Pros: -4.16 Amp load capability.
-Smooth adjusting levers.
-Effective at it's function.

Cons: -Very prone to static electricity in rigs with no ESD protection IC's, needs some sort of built in ESD protection since not all systems come with such.

Other Thoughts: -Would only recommend pairing with a motherboard that has ESD integrated controllers.

2 out of 5 eggsDefective Item

Pros: I like the idea of the four separate fan controls which are manually operated and the 50w per channel with leaves no room for error. ( no idea of the rpms)

Cons: Installed this item on a new build and the motherboard would not post as there was no power from the power supply. I in turn tried another power supply only to have the same issue. Ruled out other items by removing the sata wires and then when I removed the perf. wires and the power supply started up. After inspection found that the molex connector was shorting out. There are three molex connectors and I eliminated all but one as the wires were poorly installed. The handles fall off and are not straight in line which is not big issue as they can be glued on.

Other Thoughts: For the price of this item I would expect much better quality.

I would not recommend this controller to a friend!
Looks cheap on a 3k build!

1 out of 5 eggsUnbelievably bad quality...

Pros: None, haven't gotten far enough to try it out.

Cons: Poor quality control, reversed positive and negative wires on a 4-pin connector.

Other Thoughts: I installed this fan controller, attempted to boot and fried my motherboard. Upon inspection, turns out 1st PC Corp shipped the controller with one of the three 4-pin power connectors assembled backwards, effectively ruining my workstation and setting me back a lot of money. They'll be hearing from me in the morning. Don't buy this product.
