Bought this in the spring and did not use it till November. Probe failed after 3 months. The controller was reading the temp 10 degrees higher then it was. I noticed this bc I have another thermometer. Called JBJ the told me that I need to replace the probe every 3 months. If this was disclosed at time of purchase I would never buy this. I'm now getting and APEX. You should save your money on this. Considering the an APEX jr is not that much more and will not fail like this.

I've had 2 of these fail within just a few months of use, luckily they failed in the off mode.

It works so far, but, the front control pad is coming off 'de-laminating' in less than two weeks of use
No emergency auto shut off. By Jason Bianchi on 1/26/2017

Thermostat came out of tank and read the house temperature and ran for 11 hours straight. Would of liked to see an auto shut off after a certain amount of time with no temperature fluctuation in the reading to avoid cooking the tank. However when the probe is in the tank I can hold a two degree tolerance with a Finnex titanium heating element in a 29G biocube.

I have had this controller on my 2 tanks for three years with no problems. Had to replace one heater after about a year and a half

Bought this item and did not need to use it right away, finally completed build on new tank plugged in controller.....nothing. Not working right out the box, of course it was out of warranty. called JBJ explained the situation, they refuse any compensation, no help what so ever offered. Would not recommend this product.Gave it a star cause i had to.

Only had mine a week, but so far it's working great. I have a total of three temperature sensors, and it's tracking as accurately as the others (so far).

It was awesome for a while. But they should tell you that you will need to replace the probe every year. Spend the extra money for an Apex controller instead!

Accidentally drop it from like 1' and It died. I've opened it up and find out that transformer on the PCB popped out! What a joke how loose soldering should be to let it fall out of it's place? Skip this product.
