High Tech masterpiece.
From the packaging to the component design this is a top shelf heater. Nothing has been skimped on. Nice long power cords, thoughtful heater attachment devices with the use of magnets. No suction cups to come loose! They thought of everything. Very easy to calibrate. I hope it lasts a good long time. Great product!

Good so far
I have only had this for a couple of weeks, so can't speak to durability. I do enjoy the precision control (tenths of a degree fahrenheit) and the ability to calibrate it to a separate sensor if desired. However, strait out of the box it registered within one-tenth of my separate sensor... no need to calibrate. So far, I would recommend this product.

Good features and easy to read temperature
I have over a half dozen of these JBJ controllers and use them all with Hydor ETH external inline heaters. They are easy to setup and have large LED number making it easy to see all my tank temperatures at a glance. The detachable probe wire is quite long allowing for easy placement.
I have contacted the manufacturer directly and they have confirmed that it can handle up to 1000 total watts of current. They specifically said that as long as the total wattage of ALL heaters connected does not exceed 1000 watts and that the extension cord is rated to at least 1000 watts (9 amps) there is no problem with multiple heaters connected. I personally have a number of these controllers with up to three 300 watt heaters connected.
I have two minor issues with them. The first being that the under water probe attaches to the tank wall with a suction cup which hardens over time and no longer stays attached. The second is that there is a two degree swing on the tank temperature as it will turn on when it is one degree low and shut off when one degree high. It would be nicer if the swing was only one degree.
