Apex or Reefkeeper? Lite or Full?

I just order a reefkeeper elite and it should be here tomorrow.

[quote="aaronnohren" post=10734]I was under the impression they were simply a display, used for imputing code and quick viewing of current tank params. Convenient, but not necessary. But, that's why I am asking.[/quote]
It was my understanding that the new version of the Apex Lite was basically an apex with no head unit...

I actually have an Apex lite with a an extra part that gets me closer to the full version. The lite comes with the head unit standard. Think of it like the ACIII and the AC Jr, you lose some functionality but for many, the difference is negligible. For instance, look at the reefkeeper pics below. There is going to be an obvious "ease of use" and capability difference but on each the head unit is necessary.

If I am wrong someone please correct me but I am 99% sure it is neccesary to perform the tasks. Having said that if the computer was hardwired or connected with a wireless adapter to the controller you might have a case/chance to run without.

If you want internet access, you need to get information off the head unit to plug in your router, and vice versa.

Here is what I was talking about: [URL]http://www.neptunesys.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=61&Itemid=40[/URL]
If you read the description the head unit is an optional add on. The Internet connects directly via a built in ethernet port (or wireless adapter) so no head unit needed. I remember talking to the Neptune people at MACNA, it seemed like a great controller, especially considering the low cost.

Can be configured through optional LCD Display or a standard web browser

yeah thats kind of a game changer. I emailed Kurt @ Neptune to be sure but it seems like the APEX Jr can be configured with no head unit. While typing it looks like all three versions have the same verbiage on the Neptune website.

I guess if you have the capabilities to do it might be worthwhile. My questions is where are you going to get a controller with no head unit? The Jr only has 4 plug ins and that is its max. Just dont box yourself in with a Apex Jr, get an AC Jr instead or an Apex lite.

What do you want the controller to run. Future upgrades?

From the man himself. I stand corrected.

Hi,
With the latest version of the firmware (4.11) it is possible to
perform all the monitoring, control, and configuration through a web
browser. A display is not required.
