I don't understand the point of this product....

Pros: Sleek design, looks incredible.

Cons: Air cooling is what I live for and I honestly don't understand the point of buying something this nice, a high end premium touch controlled fan controller if it can't handle high end fans. 10 Watts? Seriously? I would never buy this. Its completely useless to me.

Overall Review: I buy the high end FFB Delta fans and tame them way down because A. They last forever (I have a Delta from the 80's that still works) B. They're incredibly efficient at lower RPM's and push tons of air even when they're turned way down. C. You have that cooling power when you need it, like when you're overclocking, benchmarking, the wife is nagging, or notice your system is running a little toasty and decide to crank it up for a few minutes.

This product really feels like a useless gadget (that looks nice) for nerds who want to brag about their computer setup and make their friends jealous.

PLEASE make something like this for computer users like me who actually have a reason to use something like this! It would make my day! Oh but wait, this company makes their own fans and they don't want me buying Delta fans. >.>

Should have read it all!

Pros: Gorgeous design.
Touchscreen.
Heavy and well lit.
More aesthetic than function (to me)

Cons: Read this in the Compatibility tab on the Details section of this item:

Compatibility ----- 5.25" Drive bay

I bought it for one sole reason, and that's to make the front of my PC look cool. It said 5.25, however, it is external. So basically, you plug everything in to a PCI slot and then drag a huge heavy wire from the back of your case to wherever you want to place this controller. I do not want that. What I wanted is something that can fit into my 5.25' drive. As it said on the details page. It is about 4 centimeters (too large) from being a perfect fit in a 5.25 slot.

Another problem is all the wires. But I knew that. You have 5 temp sensors and 5 fan plugs. Along with a molex to power it all up. VERY messy. But that's a problem with all fan controllers.

Overall Review: Eh. Oh well, I guess I can power it up without connecting anything and "stair at all the shiny lights"

Works but not very well

Comments: I probably should have researched more before buying this fan controller but I hope this review will help people not make the same mistake I did. I will be asking Newegg if I can refund it. IMO after researching more to see if I wanted to replace this fan controller for a different one I came to the conculsion that I was just going to leave them plugged into my Asus P8P67 Deluxe mobo which controls them anyway. I also recomend this for any one who has the ability to plug case fans into their mobo because it saves you a lot of hassle and cable clutter.

NZXT Controller

Comments: I wanted to like this, But with those flaws, I cant. Talked to NZXT and was told this controllers battery can get drained quick from certain power supplies. So I'm not gonna keep a controller that I have to constantly replace the battery.
