Thanks Randall. The STC-1000 is an amazing little unit for the price. And from what I can tell thus far, it works as well as more expensive controllers provided the user wires it correctly and takes care to use reasonable electrical common sense.

It is more expensive to buy the plastic box, power cord, fuse holder, strain relief and wire than it is to buy the controller unit itself. I have never found DIY to be less expensive, but it is fun and educational.

Amazon will always have poorly-rated product comments by people who use the product incorrectly. For example, do not use the STC-1000 to control a 3HP motor. That is just not good judgement. But for heat pads or heat panels in reptile cages, no problem.
