Fllowing Comparison with Other Competitors is Cited from http://www.nakedwhiz.com/productreviews/auber/auber1.htm

The barbecue temperature controller market was pioneered and has long been dominated by The BBQ Guru's line of controllers which currently include the NanoQ, the DigiQ, the CyberQ and the ProCom4 controllers. They have been selling controllers since early 2004. They were followed in 2006 by Rock's Barbeque and The Stoker controller which introduced internet connectivity, web-based control and multiple cooker control.
About Auber Instruments

Auber Instruments was founded in 2006. It manufactures and sells controllers and measurement instruments for industry and home use. The company conducts all research and development at its facility in Alpharetta, Georgia, USA. The founders, with more than 50 years combined experiences in the R&D, manufacturing and sales, are veterans of instrumentation business.

In early 2010 another company, Auber Instruments, entered the arena with what appears to be a low-cost simple temperature controller. When we saw the Auber Instruments controller, we immediately wondered how it would stack up against the BBQ Guru NanoQ controller, as both models are basic entry-level controllers that control the temperature of your cooker, but nothing else. And with the Auber model selling for about $145 and a comparably equipped BBQ Guru NanoQ coming in at almost $185, it begs the question: Is the Auber Instruments model a worthy competitor for BBQ Guru's entry level model? We have seen both positive and negative opinions from users. Has it cut corners to enter the market at a rock-bottom price or does it have the features and ability to match the competition? Reading the product instruction manual, it appears these fellows know what they are doing when it comes to process control, so have they been able to turn that know how into a successful consumer grade barbecue temperature controller? We will attempt to answer these questions and more with our in-depth testing in this product review.

Yes, I already have one which works great on my visions grill. I also have a primo, so this would come in handy, especially for ribs, where I don't need the meat probe.

I sure hope so, because I just ordered one and I'm not that far from you. If you order one and it helps him, he can send yours with mine and maybe save some money, if mine hasn't been sent yet.

To place order, please make payment of $99 to eBay@allchinas.com via Paypal.com.
No more promotional.
By the way the outlet is PID variable voltage instead of SSR,.
better!
