Not sure what kind you are looking for but I have an extra one of these and thermocouple you can have for $25 plus the ride.

Yeah, had a feeling you were looking for a Ranco-ish type one. Well, it is available if any one wants it.

If you are looking for a more plug and play type temp controller I would suggest any of these three: Johnson A419 (digital), Johnson analog (which you posted) and the Ranco ETC 111-000 (digital). These are the three that you see most homebrewers using in addition to Love temp controllers.

I bought a Ranco which is a digital controller and well respected around here. They are rather expensive ~$100 when bought through homebrew shops online or in person. I was able to find one for about $50 and simply have to wire an extension cord to it which is rather simple with tutorials around here.

RANCO ETC-111000 Microprocessor Temperature Control: RANC1 Climate Doctors

Ranco also makes a dual controller for controlling two fermenters. I thought that would be nice but it's essentially the same price as buying two regular Ranco controllers. With two separate controllers you have more flexibility with location and if one breaks you still have the other to rely on.

No prob. My advice is simply a reiteration of the knowledge I learned here.

Someone here bought this and said it was working fine not as "manufactured" as a Ranco or Johnson but for 35$ who the hell cares as long as it works

I just bought one of these. Seems like a reasonable price. With shipping it was under $50. I'll let you all know how it works. Anyone else use this yet?
