The controller does the trick. This time of year one day with A/C on and the nexted the heater kicks on. So far this unit has adjusted well except the 2 degree tempture swing.

My friend and I both bought one of these and both went out quickly. Mine said 45 degrees making the heater never turn off. Came home to 100 degree tank and 14 dead fish !!! DO NOT BUY THIS GARBAGE!

I bought this at Christmas but the controller arrived broken so JBJ agreed to replace it. 5 months later, I came home and the controller registed my temp at 0 degrees regardless of the actual temp, stuck the heater on, and killed my established reef that I've kept for 8 years. Never trust this controller

I agree with craig it is a nice product but i dislike the 2 degree swing i also wish it was only 1 degree.

Works great, some complain of the temp swing. Basically, you set it at 78 and the heater will turn on around 77 and turn off just above 78.
I see no problems with this as most tanks seem to heat themselves due to the lighting used. I needed something that would not allow my heater to nuke my tank, which had already happened. That same day I came here and bought two, life lesson 1,045 learned. A small price to pay.
Get one of these from the beginning By Jackri on 12/4/10

My first heater shorted out bring the tank to almost 90 degrees. After that I got a pair (one for back up) -- they both failed fortunately this time in the off position (they can fail on or off just as easy).
I'm done with the cheap temp controllers and always be running my heater through this controller. We often overlook some of the basics in reefing like temp control or salinity trying to save a buck on an expensive set up.
Good Quaility By craig on 11/25/10

This unit works as they say, but it has a 2 degree swing set it at 79 on at 78 off at 80.This would be an excellent unit if they would reduce the swing to 1 degree. This is a very good product with good quaility and price.
