Pros Well made solid unit. Brushed aluminum face is real nice.
Cons When using auto mode fans rev up and back down alot. Not even close to the desired temperature it is supposed to rev up. Very annoying. Also it has quite a bit of light leak on the unit. And lastly the touch screen layout is kinda clunky. Some of the area where you adjust the settings are so close to the bezel making it hard to adjust.
Summary Ascetically this unit is well made and very nice looking but unfortunately is flawed the way it functions and usability.
Cons Can be a little tricky to set the exact fan speed.
Summary I have 2 of these in mountain mods cases with 14 120mm fans each, and it has made a significant difference in the noise level. It can be a bit difficult to set the exact fan speeds but only takes a bit of getting used to. Auto mode works great, you set the default fan speed and a threshold temperature at which it will speed up to 100%.
Pros -30w per fan -includes fan extender cables -easy to user interface -Very slick looking
Cons -No documentation -touch screen isn't 100% accurate
Summary This is a great little fan controller and blends in very well with my LG blu ray drive in my R3 case. The screen is easy to navigate(though takes a bit getting used to with the small screen). The additional cable extensions really come in handy as this being in the 5 .25 bay is a lot farther than you'd expect. Once I figured out how to set fan speeds for certain scenarios over the internet I found myself loving this product even more.
Pros 30W per channel touch interface responsive touch controls automatic fan control feature long fan extensions and probes
Cons backlight bleed on edges touch controls too close to bezel
Summary Excellent fan controller that looks great too. Display has a white colored backlight. There is however some bleeding on the edges where you can the light coming through. Touch interface is very sensitive and responsive. Only thing I didn't like was that some controls like the slider and arrow keys are located too close to the bottom bezel so if you have large fingers it will be hard to press it unless you use a stylus of some sort.
Automatic fan control a nice feature. It basically cranks up the fan to 100% at a user defined temperature. No more manually fiddling with knobs.
The Lamptron Touch Fan Controller pairs the company's impressively and powerful controller design with a touch screen interface to create not only a very slick looking device, but one that is able to offer intuitive features that you won't find on your everyday unit.
