Comments: I opted to for this controller because it made by the same company ( Kessil ). Saw another brand but it was over $100.00 and I didn't feel like spending too much $$$$. This controller controls two Kessil A360WE. Programming it was fairly easy. Though at first I wanted to start my scene at 9am and gradually ramps down at 1am. You have 6 Timepoints to play with. Apparently I couldn't set the last timepoint to 1am because as soon as try to review the 6 scenes. The individual timepoints for all 6 changed to 0015 hrs for my examples. I had to edit the time again and set the last timepoint to 2359 hrs and everything worked. I just wish you can extend the time parameters after 0000hrs and I'll be happy, that's why I gave it 4 stars. But with that con I really liked this Controller. Btw before you program it go to Kessil website and download the latest firmware update or else your controller might suddenly freeze up and won't work.

Comments: This is a great way to control your Kessils! I love how it ramps up throughout the day and then back down the later it gets. Super easy to use and is very well made and thought out. Great value and looks really nice next to the tank. 5 stars!

Comments: This spectral controller was just what many were expecting ... smart, easy to use and very practical for proper programming of our " a360 we kessils" ... a very important tip !!!!, this control the maximum time possible that you can set it for 12 hours ..., keep this in mind; otherwise, will not let you program it ... but it is very easy to program by following this advice and tutorials on youtube nobody say that about this important point, I think it is an excellent product, it feels solid in the hand, not cheap, much better than the aqua illumination of which I am also owner ... nothing compared to this ... an excellent price, and 5 star plus for this useful device

Comments: I wanted a budget friendly controller for 2 A350W lights over my 75gal tank, the controller features a screen that for the size of the controller is a little small, but easy to read and understand for me. The Spectral Controller has a solid feel with a nice weight to it, the weigh comes from a magnetic back panel that allows wall mounting with included steel plate. For a first model the controller works well, the light is controlled in 5% increments,as well as the light spectrum, which brings me to my first complaint, 5% light intensity is rather bright. The transition of light intensity is smooth and flicker free if the controller is sleep mode, if not the lights flicker like a simulated lighting storm, and that is second and last complain so far.

Comments: Well worth the wait! I'm convinced this controller will set the bar for lighting control for both beginners to advanced aquarists. Easy to use, sleek, and looks as sharp as it performs.
