The Peltier device has the great advantage that it can be DRIVEN up or down
to maintain a control loop.
Most systems allow you to drive them UP but cool down passively so if you
overshoot you are at the whim of the cooling characteristics. With active
drive you can correct for variations in ambient etc.
