I have a reef keeper lite. Have to say I am not happy with it. I is a pain in the ass to connect to a computer there customer service sucks. the system works fine with the tank front controler but i really wanted to use it with a laptop that I bought just for the fishtank room. In this day things should just be plug and play and the reef keeper makes you have to update the modules before use in a special order jump through some hoops of fire and sit on top of your protein skimmer with your left foot in a tub of rodi water while holding a steel rod during a thunder storm,which for some reason i was not able to do. i just gave up on it and use it from the main display. it also uses phone type wires vs usb wires, i would not buy there syestem again or tell any one else to..... pick another brand

Okay if you don't want to expand your system By Brandon on 4/5/13

This controller did what I needed it to but left me with no room to expand. I was never able to get the Thermometer to read the proper temperature and had offset the controller to compensate for the difference. It's made of plastic and feels kind of cheap, I recently just switched over to the Apex Controller and so far I like it far better than Digital Aquatics.
Must have great value By Brad on 4/2/13

Ok so at first I thought the RKL was a frivolous gadget for my aquarium… After upgrading my tank I can’t see not using a controller. This unit was a great value AND they have excellent support! I just wish the internet connection was standard. I don't really want to give up my last module just to gain internet access. I plan on adding a bunch of switches and spill sensors on my last module.

Not real happy By Toby on 3/25/13

I think knowing what I know now I would most likely go with the Apex. Less hassle and no expansion limits. 1st of all when item was received the directions were pi@@ poor. No mention of the Myreef software at all. Only shows how it connects up. Figuring out programming is all up to you. Google and more Google. Finally found software download link on the DA forum. Then how it connects to the software?? You guessed it..on your own again. Not to
Mention I received it on Friday but can't use it because it was missing a bus cable. Contacted BRS an they said they would send DA an email. I guess I could have done that. Ordered an extra PC4 that should be here today and was told by BRS it wouldn't most likely have a BUS cable with it either! You kidding me?? I have had alot of time to figure out programming though since I can't actually use my $300 paper weight.

After buy the RKL, I do not know how I operated without it for so long. The RKL is probably one of the best investments I have made for my tank. It keeps my temperature right where it needs to be without me having to do anything, the fear of electrical fires has since left, light timers, power head controls, auto top off, you name it and the RKL can control it, and I can go to bed at night with confidence that my tank will not destroy my house. It sounds funny, but its true.
Exactly what I need. By Drew on 3/7/13

After viewing the BRS how to start a reef tank video series I decided to make the investment at the very beginning. I love the fact that I can control the temperature, dosing pumps, top off, and lighting schedule all with the same interface. I also set up some float switches that will automatically shut off my sump if something were to block the overflow. It's hard to put a price on the peace of mind this product offers.

This product works very well but trying to figure out how to work it was an absolute pain and the instructions that came with it left me with more questions still. There is only one fold out page with rigid controller setup options and it doesn't explain all the options you aren't using.

For all of you that want to enjoy your tank and not have to turn lights on or check PH all the time or control what you dose in your tank then the Reefkeeper is the controller you want. I only wish I had got the Elite so I could have more modules. The Lite only lets you have 4 the Elite lets you have 64.
