4 out of 5 eggsGood Product

This review is from: NZXT SEN-001LX Sentry LX Aluminum dual bay fan controller

Pros: Nice big interface, which makes it easy to control the fans. Obviously!

Cons: -It would've been nice to have to battery that was supposed to come with it.
-It also would be a nice if the install instructions were written better, or even just contained more information.

Other Thoughts: -I would recommend this to my friends.
-Other than the above cons, I believe this is a good fan controller.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful..no issues

This review is from: NZXT SEN-001LX Sentry LX Aluminum dual bay fan controller

Pros: I have been using it for quiet some time now, its been great, totally problem free. Don't mislead by the false reviews of this product either they didn't know what they're and/or didn't install it properly. I'm running four 120mm fans and one 140mm fan all with all LED's and works beautifully. My computer is just even more wonderful the overall noise level is much, much lower and the computer is now cooled much more efficiently resulting overall performance and system health.

Thank you for the awesome product, NZXT

Cons: - It's hard to read the date and time at certain angles

1 out of 5 eggsThis controllers are JUNK!

This review is from: NZXT SEN-001LX Sentry LX Aluminum dual bay fan controller

Pros: Looks good.
Long wires.

Cons: !<<< DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT >>>!

Pretty much junk. Out of 4 units only 1 is more or less stable. Had to return 3 units just to get the same problems:

1. Fans would speed up randomly then slow down
2. Alarm will go off even when disabled
3. Connected fans not recognized
4. Will not control speed
5. Screen failures
and so on

That's garbage in my books.

I don't know why I gave this awful product so many tries. It is completely unreliable.
If anyone wonders, I have 9 Apolish Vegas 120mm variable speed fans.

!<<< DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT >>>!

4 out of 5 eggsOver all a decent controller

This review is from: NZXT SEN-001LX Sentry LX Aluminum dual bay fan controller

Pros: Time and date is a nice touch, being able to see the temp in all five zones with out having to switch between them is nice, and the display is still read able at a angle a little messy but u can still make it out.

Cons: Didnt do research not products fault but it only accepts 3 pin fans but with a little modification it can power a 4 pin so definitely do ur research would of been nice to have it open to accept 4 pin but hey can't have it all

Other Thoughts: Over all I like I immediately voided my warranty when I got modifying it but hey it works looks nice. It gets the job done

2 out of 5 eggsCheap Parts, cheap software.

This review is from: NZXT SEN-001LX Sentry LX Aluminum dual bay fan controller

Pros: It looks nice on the product page.

Cons: - The LCD viewing angles are beyond horrible.
- Even when the controller is in manual mode the alarm will still go off and the fans will spool into the 1200-1500 rpm range.
- Alarm has no manual off button.

Other Thoughts: This isn't bad or good since you can look it up on specifications but it can only put out 1.2A on 5V per line so thats like 1 big LED fan or 2 small fans with no lighting.

4 out of 5 eggsPure awesomeness

This review is from: NZXT SEN-001LX Sentry LX Aluminum dual bay fan controller

Pros: This thing looks so insanely cool. The fan speed monitors and temperature probes work great. It keeps the date and time accurately and hasn't failed yet.

Cons: The beeping noise is really annoying and the build quality is somewhat questionable.

It takes up 2 5.25" drives so make sure you have enough space to install this without getting in the way of other hardware

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a good way to make your pc look unique and cool, this is a good choice

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy unless you want it for visual appeal

This review is from: NZXT SEN-001LX Sentry LX Aluminum dual bay fan controller

Pros: Looks nice.
I've had it for a couple years and the display still works.

Cons: Pretty much useless in function. It won't keep your time or settings and will obnoxiously beep at you if it somehow can't read the temperature of a part. You will have to manually turn off the temp alarm every time you boot up. I've kept one of the sensors in the same place for the past years and only recently started beeping more than usual even when I put new electrical tape. No clue why functions the way it does. Just don't get it unless you want to deal with these things. There's literally no useful function to it.

3 out of 5 eggsLooks Great

This review is from: NZXT SEN-001LX Sentry LX Aluminum dual bay fan controller

Pros: Looks great and does what it says in the box. Gives a cheap case a bit of style and an NZXT nametag on the front.

Cons: Not really useful

Other Thoughts: Looks great, there's no denying in, but is there really any use for it?

In fact, I think it interferes with the MB onboard smart fan control.

Still, its staying in, because it looks awesome.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY-It will die prematurely

This review is from: NZXT SEN-001LX Sentry LX Aluminum dual bay fan controller

Pros: Very colorful and informative display. Looks cool.

Cons: I've had two of these and they have both died within months of installation. The LCD goes completely dark and you cannot see anything. Any fans attached ceace to function. In addition, the unit is designed so that the RESET button wipes out the clock and other settings. NZXT was not helpful in repairing my units. The Sentry LX is not as functional as it is pretty.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Fan Controller

This review is from: NZXT SEN-001LX Sentry LX Aluminum dual bay fan controller

Pros: Very good fan controller. Easy to install and easy to setup. The auto function works decent and plenty of cable length.

Cons: First off the construction is questionable. The metal blocks on the back are crooked and I feel the terminals could get pulled out easily. I was also disappointed that I got the beeping that everyone is talking about. It's pretty annoying and happens at least 4 times a week. It's so loud that it wakes my cat up every time and she freaks out. I have a feeling this is caused by a momentary drop in voltage and the controller thinks its one of the fans stopping so it sounds an alarm. I bet if they built in a time delay to a fan stoppage alarm it would stop this random occurrence. I am also not a fan of the pictures of the fans spinning. It serves no purposes and I think actually takes away from the looks of this. My last complaint is how 'dumb' the auto fan function is. It literally just senses temperature and adjusts accordingly.

Other Thoughts: I feel in addition to the temperature sensors the auto setting should also allow you to set the position of the fan in the case as well as it being positive or negative. If it knew all of this information I feel it would make smarter decisions on the rpm's of the fan. I am forced to run this on manual mode. Unfortunately even with all of the problems of this controller you will not be able to find a better one. It's sad that no company out there can build a solid controller with these features that;'s build with quality and longevity.
