Just a "dry" run with water. Everything worked as it should and I'm happy with my choice. The lack of an analog power control in the electricbiab model is a deal killer for me, though I've seen plenty of comments from those without one that they don't feel it's absolutely necessary. The quick disconnects in the High Gravity system are veeeeery nice to have, but you could always add those on yourself. Brewhardware.com has good prices on SS disconnects that I hope to upgrade to eventually.
I prefer the High Gravity's recirculation system and the temperature probe placement (with quick disconnect), but these are all relatively easy modifications to make on your own. So I guess it comes down to your controller preferences.
