PC4 is Reliable By Terri on 5/4/2015
Terri would recommend this product to a friend
Third PC4 I have purchased. They are reliable. The only thing I would like to see is the number of outlets increased. 8 outlets per bar like the Apex. 2 of the outlets designed for equipment that switches on and off frequently such as for ATO's, dosers, etc.
Works but could be better quality By Nick on 2/5/2015

I have two pc4s. The first one was defective and drew 11 amps with empty sockets. Quick replacement from factory worked fine. Second one has loose plugs, wiggle in plastic holder. If I had to do it again I would spend more and the the Apex setup.

Great product, no problems after years of use. It is so easy to set up and use. I would not have my tank plugged into anything else, very reliable.

I have added 2 of these module to my existing reef keeper to fully automate my system. Units are very robust and work without issues.

These are great. I liked the one I received with my RKL so much, I have 3 on my new tank setup. Just the convenience of being able to turn everything on and off at one panel is nice. The solidly mounting plugs ionside the cabinet, even better.
Works well By Aron on 11/29/2012

This PC4 outlet lets you control 4 different parts of your aquarium with a pretty straightforward method through the display unit that comes with the reefkeeper. I think for durability it's pretty good but I've had the sticker labeling the sections on it come off which makes me question their quality. Also, it's quite expensive in my opinion but that's nothing new in this hobby.
Gets the job done By Micah on 4/26/2012

Got the controller somewhere else but purchased the stripe here, and i got to say it could be buggie at times but not often like any other controller, just reset and calibrate and bingo . If you don't have one then get one it is a very very useful tool especially in a hobby that is complicated enough. one of the best purchases i have invested in. I would buy it here so you can add up points I wish I found this site when I first started ;)...
under average product and bad support By BOMBOM on 3/11/2012
BOMBOM wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
i got this controller year ago, and i couldn’t be more disappointed.
the controller work fine if you are intending to use it only as a timer for your light(which you can do with 10$ timer unites rather than use this controller). but any other functionality like
- temperature control and reading
- PH reading and control
- collect statistics
- controlling chillers
- controlling fans
forget about it, anything except timers are buggy and always crash and give bad reading. i tried to contact the customer care, they were not useful at all, all what they will say is: calibrate the probs, restore the unit to factory default, or my personal favorite, wait for news software release.
i think getting other unites like the neptune is much better choice and better investment for the future/

filled my first pc4 bar up the first day i got my reef keeper light and now i need one more. I was a little Hesitant of buying a cotroller like the reef keeper light but for the cost and performance of this controller I could not go wrong, and now that bought one and set it up I dont know what I would do with out it it runs my hole tank. so if your thinking of up grading from power bars and timers this is for you
Love it By Ralph on 7/13/2011

I love the way I can keep adding more to the system. They are easy to hookup. My only problem is I keep finding ways to fill them up and need to get another.

I love this Device! I use it to control everything. The heater option allows me to keep my temps with in .1 Degree and that's way better than trying to set it. Also I use an old heater that use to burn up and set the default to off and the RKL make this device work flawless. I also love that it can tell me amps as well as graph anything I want. It's the best add on you can buy!

adding to my Reefkeeper By cory drysdale on 9/7/2010
cory drysdale would recommend this product to a friend
This is the 3rd power supply Ive added to my system which constantly evolves in taking over running my entire system. The Reefkeeper Elite is such a great system with thought out products that you cant go wrong. These power bars are amazing. Im using them to run high load pumps right down to the non powered switches for my ATO.
The web site for Digital Aquatics is constantly being updated with other peoples issues , solutions and new products. You can go wrong here!!!
Great PowerBar!!! By Patrick on 8/3/2010
Patrick would recommend this product to a friend
Don't be fooled thinking that the systems that offer 8, or 16 power ports per bar are actually giving you anything more than DA in this case. The DA PC4 (as do all other bars that I'm aware) are rated for 15A, which isn't exactly hard to exceed in most cases as soon as you add anything with a heavy load (a simple T5 4x54w can push upwards of 4 amps!). While yes, in some cases with smaller loads it'd be nice to have one larger bar to place those on, they've rather spent the time putting in better relays for some of the channels, and have worked to ensure that the PC4 is the best quality currently available in most, if not all of the entry level controllers.
Good Value By Andre on 5/26/2010

This is an easy addition to the reef keeper light and is much better value than buying seperate power bars and timers. Installation is nice and easy.
