Default MyPin TD6-SNR PID for RIMS?

I'm trying to piece together a RIMS setup. Will this PID/SSR combo work?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Digital-PID-...70773791107%26

Obviously I'm trying to save a few bucks and it seems people have had success with the MyPin PIDs. I couldn't find any mention of this particular model on here. I saw people were using the MyPin TA4/TD4 for HERMS. Any insight appreciated...

What's the difference between TD6 and TD4?

They will work though MyPin PIDs can be frustrating to the uninitiated. The "GUI", to abuse a term, is less than intuitive and the instructions are not written by a native English speaker to say the least. They also don't have a manual mode so they don't work so well for the boil. That said, they are cheap and should work just fine for the mash/HERMS. I'm currently using a TA4 for a sous vide machine.

The Auber PIDs are worth the extra money though just for ease of use.

TA4 does not have a manual mode. TD4 does have a manual mode. I am not sure about TD6.

Reading the description from the seller states the TD6 has manual/auto tuning modes.

So it sounds like this TD6 will work if I'm willing to put up with a crappy UI and instructions? I might just try it out and see if I can make it work. I'm already way over budget on the single tier I built and this RIMS was an afterthought. Never had interest in automation until I stopped using a cooler mash tun. I can't seem to hit target temps with my new setup and I'm tired of messing up beers trying to "figure it out".

The D means it has a manual mode. The 4 or 6 refer to the size of the unit itself. 4s are 48x48, 6s are 96(h)x48(w). Now that I have mine figured out, I wouldnt hesitate to buy again.

I managed to download the TD series manual from the MYPIN website.

There are a few translation glitches and it's not immediately obvious to me how to set the manual mode, but I've certainly seen worse.
