Default Anyone have problems with "Fake" ATC-1000

I am looking into buying a temp controller for a freezer and I found the STC-1000 wanna bes on ebay. They look the same and have the same ratings. Has anyone bought one and did you have any issues with them? Thank you for your time.

I have this one. For the price difference, it's not worth it. It's a single stage as opposed to the double stage STC. That being said, it works just fine. Let me know if you need any specifics on it

It's not a fake... it is just single stage. Heat OR cool You have to switch modes yourself. This will be great for a chamber in a controlled environment such as a Keezer in your living room that needs no heat.

Well look at that! Don't I feel stupid for missing that. Its hard to tell the different between the two. The only thing I see is if they listed it as a dual stage or say it automatically switches between modes. Thank you for pointing this out to me! As always you guys are the best!
