[AquaComputer] Aquaero 6 - Page 10  

post #91 of 1963
Fair enough smile.gif
I have Aquaero 5 xT (some other stuff such as power adjus2s, flow sensors, etc)and one of your cases. The only thing that puts me off about aqua computer products is a lack of good user manual documentation. I have to go searching for answers on forums in German at times, especially if the set up involves using multiple monitoring devices from aqua computer. Your site however, in contrast, has user manual, quick turnaround on questions, and both are niche companies focused on the enthusiast market. May be Aqua computer can provide a streamlined comprehensive user guide with this new release that incorporates the reality that many of its customers use multiple aqua computer products which have to talk to each other via aqua bus , and a usb hub (depending on the set up), given all the usb connections for monitoring of each device.

Oh, I'm in the same boat. I have little complaints about Aquacomputer myself. Inability to use the Aqualis horizontally, not spacing or tapping their ports to accommodate many compression fittings out there, lack of documentation. These are all things that I hope they work on correcting. I'm not trying to bad mouth them, every company has things they need to work on, these are just my personal miffs. I hope Shoggy can take some of these points as constructive criticism, because I believe if they work this stuff out, they will be bar none one of, if not the best WC accessory company out there.

Seriously, Shoggy. Horizontal Aqualis tube reservoirs. Vertical is too over-used. <3

I understand the pricing of Aquaeros fine.

I can't get over the pricing of an replacement aluminium sheet, might as well let people choose silver or black as not everyone likes a silver case.

Besides flat aluminium is cheap.

They should at least just throw it in >_>
Money is still money. Doesn't make sense that they will charge so much just for a piece of aluminium when you can at least use that money for extra fans

It makes perfect sense. Their profit margin on a product like this is extremely small. Name one other company that has a controller that is even remotely similar. You can't. R&D, design, manufacturing, materials, marketing, employee salary, warranty, and profit all had to be factored in to the cost of a product.

This is an enthusiast grade product, not your average 30 dollar controller made of plastic.

Alphacool Heat master,Big NG fancontroller and,to a lesser extent,the CW611.

All of which are cheaper and less bug prone.

The bit that sets the AC unit apart and the only reason i use one is the Aquasuite.

None of them are as expandable or provide as many options as the Aquero itself, however.

Not strictly true,the Alphacool unit has more options but at a cost of user friendliness.
The Aquasuite is the important part of the AC kit for me.

Seeing as most people will have to buy one to match their case anyway, why not offer custom engraving?

Woohoo, you're getting me excited Shoggy. I have the Poweradjust black faceplate already shipping, can I order the black faceplate for the Aquaero 5 and use it for the Aquaero 6?

There seems to be an old and a new faceplate for the A5.

That engraving sounds sweet. smile.gif
