I got the reef keeper lite plus to start out on my first tank, and I would never try anything else. It's affordable, and does so much out of one package. Literature is pretty crappy though, so some fiddling is needed to learn all the ins and outs of the myreef 2.0 software

Easy installation. Feature rich. Easy to configure from both pc and display. Wouldnt have a tank without it.
A MUST HAVE FOR ANY AQUARIUM By Tim on 10/9/2012

I always thought that these controllers were for big systems with more stuff to monitor. I was wrong. I use to spend a lot of time adjusting heaters when different seasons rolled around and trying to time cooling fans to cool the lights at the hottest part of the day. I would constantly have to check the temperature and was never at ease. Now I have everything plugged into my ReefKeeper Lite. I have the tank set at 78 degrees and it stays there all day and all night long. If it gets too hot the cooling fan comes on and if it gets even hotter the lights will turn off for a little while. At night it cools down and the heaters come on. I also have powerheads and refugium lights plugged into it. I recommend getting the Lite Plus package because it comes with the extra strip of plugs. Four plugs just isn't enough and you'll end up getting more.
Keep in mind that this comes with almost no instructions on how to set up. After two hours of pulling out my hair I just called digital aquatics and they walked me through it making it extremely easy. Just call them when you open it because it'll save you time and frustration!
The value controller By Matt on 10/8/2012

I purchased this controller to control lights, ATO, an automatic water change system I DIY'd, Ph for my Kalk ATO water and to control temp with a fan/heater.
The SID that came with the unit didn't work, but Digital Aquatics sent a replacement. The Reefkeeper Lite will provide you with basic functionality, and I added the MLC unit to control LED moonlights, too.That's all four modules allotted with the Lite, so I cant add anything else to control, but if you're looking for basic functionality, this controller is the best value.
Some of the components feel flimsy, especially the connections, but everything works. There is a bit of a learning curve, and the MyReef 2.0 software is so-so. Updating firmware is a chore. For the money though, I got my buck's worth.

I love my RKL. It controls everything from my lights to my heaters to my dosing pumps. It tops off my water and keeps my tank perfect. There is no comparison, this is the best product on the market to control your aquarium.

I have the Lite Plus unit on my tank and have used the 4th module for a 3rd PC4. I love this unit but I am already planning to upgrade to the Elite unit mainly because I fint that I need more PC4 units and also I want the NET and LS2 with Salinity and second PH probe.

This product is great and can do more stuff than I know how to do. The only downfall that is has are the directions. Trying to figure it out was really hard. Thankfully I used the videos on this website to help me along.

The product is very good once you figure out how to setup. You are only given a one page fold-out as instructions and are expected to browse the forum for help. I guess I expect thorugh instructions after spending nearly $300.
