Hey guys everyone seems to think Auberins is the beezneez when it comes to homebrew PID's. Any particular reason for that?

How about this ebay PID, it does both F and C, has a SSR and seems very similar to Auberins, but almost half the cost?

It doesn't appear to have a manual PWM mode for controlling a boil. OK for HLT or RIMS but not boil.

Do it. You will not regret it one bit. I'd suggest their SYL-2352 PID.

Auber is also great with customer service. He actually answers the phone when you call and will gladly walk you through any problems that you come across. It's worth the extra dollars
