    Comments: This unit is the best expense I've made to date I have added the feeder, the conductivity module and the leak detector to my original purchase and controlling the tank parameters is a breeze. My PH is at 8.35 and constant, temperature is at 78.4 my ORP is 398 and my salinity is at 30.1. Their is no more guess work. This controller handles my Echo tech pumps my Iwaki main pump my dosing pumps and kalkwasser and ATO reactor. I've got automatic feed cycles and leak alert when needed.

    Comments: First of all, the thing just works. When I plugged it in, I was immediately able to get control and readings on my computer. It has a built-in web server which works with most browsers (not Safari on the iPad). The interface seems a little outdated, but I can live with it because I wasn't going for pretty.Every product is going to have one kind of problem or another... at least with me at the helm. What makes Neptune worth the money is that the Neptune System office actually responds to questions. Their excellent documentation answered all my questions. When I started coloring outside the lines, the Neptune office was there for me with real/live human help (unlike Digital Aquatics).Kudos to Neptune Systems. Y'all done good on this one.

    Comments: Functionally, this controller is great. It does most of what i need out of the box nd you can buy additional items to increase its functionality... I do have a few complaints. First, What moron decided that we should move form nice sturdy controllers (keep in mind that the RK2 had a metal housing!) to these cheap feeling crappy plastic housings. the thing feels like a toy in your hands. I would like neptune to take a hint from Apple and start building some more solid products. The wires are thin and feel like they are designed to break. Particularly the one that is on the head unit. for 500 bucks, I would like a water tight gasket on the system. Also, it is unacceptable that the consumer is required to buy an aftermarket internet adaptor to get this unit to work wirelessly. Everything under the sun has wifi capability-- why no this? Given the low cost and functionality of smart phones these days, I bet the technology is there...its just not being used for aquariums. Also, the need for a breakout box to use float switches is a bit pathetic. So unlike most, I give this controller a c+. I want a unit that has all the features I want to use without a ton of crazy add ons and extra gadgets to attach.

    Comments: I had an Octopus controller for almost 10 years and it worked well, but needed web access while I travelled and this unit definitely works great. This unit, a dns service, and a few webcams have enabled me to view and maintain my tank from overseas. Only complaint is spotty safari browser support (though firefox on mac is so-so), and it had problems recovering from a power outage once so I had to reset it manually).

    Comments: My experience is the same as many others who have reviewed it. It is a great tank controller that gives me up to the minute information and peace of mind both when I'm standing in front of it, or when I'm hundreds of miles away. I would give it 5 stars if it were a little more straightforward to use. I'm a techie by trade, and was disappointed to have to leverage so many skills from my day job to set up and program the thing! That being said, there is a great community of enthusiasts who are of great help when you get stuck.

    Comments: I initially considered a controller only for real time parameter monitoring. I was done with hassels of checking my tank regularly for temp/pH/salinity. I thought I was spending far too much money when I decided to buy the Neptune system for this limited reason but thought that I might find some way to make use of the other features. The negative reviews found here (although limited) made me even more scared. It was only after purchasing, installing, and learning what it can do, that I can now say the unit is truly life changing. I have (as most reefers do) a huge investment in my livestock and a sentimental attachment as I have propagated and raised it like an adopted child. The ability to know in real time via my cell phone app is both comforting and freeing, and not just the chemistry of the tank..... The ENTIRE system! If temp gets to high, a fan turns on/refugium lights turn off/and an email is sent to me... If my external protein skimmer goes volcanic and overflows it capacity/it shuts down and sends me an email. I've integrated literally every powered item into my control and (as one negative reviewer points out) this "overglorified light switch" can be programed to work them all based on its probe inputs using basic logic like if temp to high/turn off temp inducing units/turn on the fans or if the salinity is too low/shut off the ATO unit. I've even connected that switch you see at the city aquariums where you induce a current momentarily to see the livestock respond or stop the current momentarily to look down into the tank. This allows my guests to interface with the tank and I don't have to worry about it getting turned back on/off correctly. Next to my Radion LED lights, this is probably the best single piece of "optional" equipment I have ever bought. And guess what, it already controls my VORTECH pumps and Neptune just announced it will have a firmware upgrade (free) that will control my Radions!!! simply awesome. The minus half star is for th

    Comments: I've had this controller for 2 weeks and seemed to work fine. Then the energy bar that you plug everything into had outlets stop working. This is the second issue I had with them and I once again expect them to not do anything. Stay away from there products!
