Lamptron Readies FCT Touchscreen Fan Controller

Lamptron, known most for its fan controllers ranging from the retro aviator switch Hummer to the analog rheostat-driven FC3/4/5 series, and the speed/temperature digital monitoring-equipped FC6, is now out with a touchscreen-based FCT "Touch", that completely does away with buttons, switches and knobs for touch-based control. The FCT occupies a 5.25" drive bay, and takes 6 independent fan channels of up to 30W each, along with fan-speed and thermal-zone real-time monitoring. It comes with two CNC-milled bezel options: graphite black and silver. Pricing is not known at this time.

This does look nice. Would like to see a pic with the screen showing an overall status of all fans, though that might be hard given the real-estate.

while this looks pretty awesome, and I might buy one, all I could think of when I saw the title was "lambtron" the chinpokomon from south park.

If you are okay with knobs instead of a touch screen, the Sunbeam Rheobus Extreme also provides 6x 30w channels ($27 here).

I've never wanted a touch screen controller due to reports of durability problems, compared to their cheaper, less sophisticated, but fully functional alternatives.

I really like the simple and clean look of it. Not to over the top like some on the market today.
