I had the RK elite setup a while back, and while I had it I LOVED it! BUT I ended up selling it off and to be honest, I don't really miss it. Then again, I never fully utilized all it's possible features but it did cut down on the cord clutter just a little bit. Keep in mind those same cords are still gonna be under the hood somewhere, just now they will be plugged into the RK strips. lol
if I had to do it again, I wouldn't. Now, if you were to use it for dosing and calcium reactors and all that kind of thing, it might be a good investment.
