Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great cheap product or the price this product works wonders with the ability to change colours to suit most systems but lacks features in areas. for example the white looks more pinkish, the sliders feel very loose and there is no off buttons to switch all the fans off. It does however look good and does it's job I would recommend it to someone on a budget. 28 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice quality! Cheap, good quality and very powerfull fan controller. 18 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fuss free fan controller Just sliding controllers to adjust fan voltages. The simplicity of the device means it's built to last. There are no RPM reading so you'll adjust fans speed with the position of the slider and general fan noise that suites you. The minimum 40% voltage control was still too much power to run my power efficient Noctua fans silently at this lowest setting, so I added fan resistor cables to drop the voltage further. There are clearly more sophisticated flashy fan controllers out there, but the reason you'd pick this one up is exactly this reason. 18 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bargin for your money Simple 6 connections to plug your fans into, does the job... The colours look really nice and my computer is so quite now! 11 November 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent This is a very good value fan controller, does its job very well. Keeps all 6 of my fans in check, especially my loud Cpu fans on the radiator! I like the fact the LED colors can be changed on the front, brilliant for anyone who has a specific color scheme throughout their rig. 23 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fan controller for the price. Its a very good fan controller for the price in my opinion. It can support up to six fans at once, which should be enough for any average user, looks very clean with a black matte finish that goes well with my 450D from the obsidian series but any case should be fine. It has changeable colours from a button on the left of it which is switchable from white, blue, red, green and orange. So it could support certain themed rigs. I've had no problems with this product so far and would recommend it. I'm not to keen on touch screen displays for fan controllers but that's just me. To sum this product up: A very well made fan controller at a low price. 09 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product, good quality and looks good Its a good price and offers 6 fan control with the most simple operation, compared to touch screen fan controllers it beats most of them just for ease of use and asthetics to be honest. Can change LED colours to suit your preference or case so can't ask for much more, also has a nice rubbery matte finish so it feels and looks great. 08 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Useful fan controller I bought this to control my rad fans with and I'm not dissapointed. The sliders are smooth and responsive and the quality of the whole controller made it easy to work with. All the connectors came pre-labelled which made installing fans a lot easier. It also fits in nicely with the look of my Switch 810, which is a distinct bonus! The only 'downside' is that it runs my fans at 100% for 2-3 seconds during a cold boot but it's not really a problem for me. 27 December 2013

regarding power draw

A customer who reviewed this item stated that it requires 180watts of power. I assume this is not correct. Please confirm that the unit can use up to a maximum 180 watts but will actually only use whatever the power draw of the fans connected to it are, which will normally be considerable less. Thanks

Answer: 
My bad, you are correct; it will use upto a maximum of 180 Watts (30W per channel); therefore it will only draw what it needs.
However, I was trying to get across that customers need to be aware when installing fans and that it will use 180W if required by the unit and therefore it could strain the power supply. It all comes down to what type of fans you install at the end of the day.

Answer: 
That's sort of true but not going to happen. 180 Watts is assuming you use 6 fans and each one draws 30 Watts each. Since a typical single fan draws around 1-3 watts max depending on it's size and efficiency.

It has 2 molex power connectors to feed the fan controller. But it works fine off one. This controller is clearly over engineers at 30 Watts per channel. I expect that's so it can be used to power other things like water pumps.
