What a great product, and up to the usual Akasa quality standard. For me, I wanted the ability to control two of my 4 fans, so I now have one spare controller for future use if I need it. My fans are now running much quieter with no increase in cpu or system temperature. The two USB 2.0 ports are brilliant. They work well. However I agree a single block USB plug at the motherboard end would be better than the eight single little plugs as mentioned in earlier posts. The instructions do not cover the fitting of these plugs. However, it does use standard wiring and colours (as outlined in your motherboard manual) and is NOT difficult to fit if you just check the wiring colours in your existing USB plug interfaces if, that is, you find reading the manual a chore. Each cable and plug on the Akasa unit is labelled. Just make sure you get the + and - connectors in the correct positions (motherboard manual again can tell you). It's easy. One other point...most motherboards now come with a spare USB block plug, labelled and ready to take the 8 separate USB cable connectors on this unit if you want to use it (you don't have to). Or you can buy one from Maplins. My Asus motherboard came with this feature. So anyone that is put off by the comments in other reviews here really shouldn't be. It quality, it's good, it works! Get one. Thanks to amazon and it's partners for this good service.
