Default Good Temperature controller for minifridge fermentation chamber?

Are these things any good for keeping a bar fridge temp constant?

Thanks, I found that one not long after posting. I ended up purchasing a wine fridge with a built in temp controller instead.

Wow, that's a hell of a lot less expensive than my Love controller!
