A no-brainier for the Nano Sol By Ken on 1/1/2013
Ken would recommend this product to a friend
I can't imagine having a Nano Sol without this controller. It completely simplifies all of the programming and opens up all of the flexibility this light has to offer. Currently, mine is set with equal color across with 4 programs. Each program ramps the light intensity up or down nicely over a pre-set time period. The thunderstorm mode is cool but I don't use it. I would give this 5 stars but the control knob is not as precise as I would like. It sometimes changes the value I have settled on when pressings it to enter. This simply means cycling back through several screens to correct.

Must have if using AI sol By Vitiock on 10/31/2012

The AI sol really needs a controller to really experience it fully, this controller really works well and is simple and easy to use while still being full featured.
Good... But one small issue By mckay on 8/10/2012

So these are great for controlling AI Sols. I would recommend this over the ALC unit by Digital Aquatics as this unit give you control over all 3 light colors on the Sol Blue for mood options and precise color control. The ramps work great and allow for nice variations of lighting throughout the day and night.
Only problem I have is the controller knob is really sensitive and tends to "double click", so I overshoot the menu or setting I want - so I have to go though the entire sequence and try again. Kind of hard to explain, but its just a bit finicky is all. Not sure if it's a flaw in my unit... it's not bad enough to return it - just kind of annoying.
You Have To Have This By Gerard on 7/3/2012

The controller makes the Sol a much better LED unit than just basic on off you have without the controller. On a side note the moonlight setting is really bright for my taste.
Works great By Aaron on 6/27/2012

Works great, easy to use and program. If you have sol's or nano's, don't go without it.

Great controller By Jason on 11/23/2011

Once you get the basic idea down of how the controller and timers work - you'll have no problems setting up your lighting. It has plenty of timer slots available for whatever your needs may be and is extremely easy to get around in and modify. Dimming, sunrise/set, storms, lunar cycles....it has it all. Very nice
