Yeah, it's true that you get what you pay for but the basis of a good system is there in a T8280, I honestly can't fault it with the controller mod...

I actually like the fact that hit heats the board more gradually cause it puts less stress/shock on the board, but I understand that if your a business doing 10 -15 boards a day a T8280 isn't really gonna be an option, time is money as they say...

Min = minutes :P. Well I use my own holder so its a bit higher, and as Drunken said i did that to have the temp raise gradually (i do 5 boards a week so no problem for me). I can get it to 11 minutes 180C mark but i like it so better.

There is more to it than just the bad oem controller. I understand why they are popular. Cost. And you can get by with them, but 1200W is pretty low
power using IR elements. With IR you are better off having more power so you can have board higher above plates to get less "convection" and more
"radiation". Better job of heating pcb without getting caps too hot.

Seems like my T8280 is starting to behave strange. Well with 270C i get now 165C on one side and 140C on the other side. Whats really strange since i got yesterday 180C with this setup over whole heating plate. Any sugestions what to check maybe the "stock" termocouple.

When you say one side do you mean top and bottom of board. If so and youve the two plate model could be a plate dying . Eaisest way swap the plate over simple job of opening up and swapping the wire layout if the problem swaps itself around so the temp difference is swapped then you know the plate is on its way out
