Installation is simple, fan connections are labeled on the rear of the panel as well as on the connectors themselves. Though it does add a good bit of extra wires to your case, with a little routing and tucking they can be managed quite well. For the sake of brevity I'll skip the setup process and bring us directly to the installed product:

Though it can take up to 4 fans, I only have three fans that can be controlled by the Kaze Master: My AC Freezer 64 Pro, Zalman VF900-CU and Yate Loon 120MM front intake. For the time being I opted to not use the thermal sensors.

Pretty sexy, yes?
As you can see, if there's no fan connected to a channel there's no speed displayed. I wish the same went for the temp sensors. Even with nothing attached they dipslay 0.0Â°C.
The display is bright and clear and readable at any angle. As seen in the next pic, the speed display is a slightly greener color than the temperature readout.

The knobs are small and spaced far enough apart so changing speeds is easy. They extend about half an inch(11-12MM), which gives plenty of room for the door of my P182 to close.
Turning a knob to the 7 o' clock position turns the fan connected to that channel off, while full speed is achieved by turning the knob clockwise to the 5 o' clock.
On the rear of the panel there are two jumpers, one for selecting Celsius or Fahrenheit for the temperature display. Changing the jumper position switches between the two. The second jumper is for the speed/temperature warning beeper. Disabling the beeper is done by simply removing the jumper. When enabled the alarm will sound if:
A temperature sensor fails
Temperature exceeds 75Â°C
Fan speed reaches 0 RPM
In addition to the 5.25"(KM01) version there is also a 2 channel 3.5" controller, the KM0135. Both sizes are available in black or silver.
Prices are ~$35 for the KM0135 and ~$40 for the KM01.
