Here is my temp controller. I bought from qualitylink2000 off of ebay and it arrived in 2.5 weeks. I scored it for $15+$10 shipping. Pretty standard build nothing new here just thought I would share...

These seem to be the same units but they 'convert' them and put a sticker on. With luck you have the correct one.

I see no sticker on anything except the one on the top which shows everything as 220v. How would I tell aside from that?

That I don't know. I'm just saying they may tell you the unit is the proper one but just not correctly labeled. I'm just pointing out they may indeed tell you that and if they do it may well be correct. Just prepare for that possibility.

the way i have done it...

1)i ordered from globalconn ("Buy Now" option)

http://stores.ebay.com/globalconn

2) follow up after the purchase with a message to the seller about purchasing the product with a little reminder that" i am in the USA and need a 110V model."

globalconn has messaged me back the next day both times, stating "Noted and will ship 110V.-globalconn"

seem like cool people

I did the same thing with Qualitylink2000 when paying via PayPal there was a small easy to miss link that when clicked opens a comment box.
