    They were there in a pinch Product Review by Wynn (Posted on 2/26/14)

    Excellent!

    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 The interface seems a little outdated, but I can live with it because I wasn't going for pretty.Every product is going to have one kind of problem or another...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.

    Great controller Product Review by ERIK (Posted on 2/26/14)

    Excellent!

    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).

    Life changing..... Product Review by ROBERT KENNEDY (Posted on 9/16/13)

    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

    Excellent!

    Comments: I would recommend this to all the new people. After all the reading and all the learning on what it takes to run a saltwater reef tank I was taken back, but then came across the apex controller takes so much guess work out of the puzzle and now its like having a personal assistant in running my tank, and it grow with it. Just can't lose with this controller.
