Very cool looking unit, touchscreen is really nice, and it supports 6 fans and is only $10 more than the FC5. Seems like a good buy

If only it had a convenient way to monitor all fans at once. Still pretty nice. But the price is indeed a premium.

pretty cool, but I think the small "buttons" will make the process harder. If the "buttons" were bigger like when the dude slide the bar, then I think that's better. Given the quality, and features, it justifies the cost.

But I prefer using the knobs due to the simplicity.

It's cool, looks a little hard to navigate. Especially if you have large sausages for fingers. Finally someone came out w/ a touch screen that can actually withstand some high amperage fans like Delta's/San Ace's, and the like.

Unfortunately, it's too little & too late for me. Tech station, and in the near future phase change....I don't need it anymore. I'll just save the 2nd bay for a 2.5" f.f. hotswap backplane. Thanks anyway.

I was very excited about this controller until I saw this vid. My fingers are too big for the damn screen.

No way can a unit like that be that cheap; if it was, Lamptron would probably go out of business for losing money on each unit.


Anyway, looks like touch screens are still too finicky for my taste. But since it's Lamptron's first touch screen unit, perhaps the next one will be better.

The color of the lcd was supposed to be white. It looks light blue to me. Well I hope the release of this will drop down the price of the FC5-V2.

Wish they would release a 6-channel version of the FC-5 V2.
