I would never use any heater with a built in controller.

Link below is the controller and titanium heating element I use.

The Aqaumedic controller is about the best stand alone heater controller out there.

I have read way too many stories of reef tanks that have been completely wiped out by a cheap heater that either cracked or stuck on.
