4 out of 5 eggsWorks well and easy function

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: Got this when I was newer to computers. Easy to use for all tech levels.
Great flexibility for multi fan control. 40% speed is great to reduce noise level especially if you like a quite pc.
It also looks pretty cool.

Cons: Not major but obviously has a decent number of extra wires to clutter up pathways and get tangled in other cords.

3 out of 5 eggsDefinitely does the job

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: Great product for the price

It comes with 5 fan headers either molex or 3pin so you can almost plug in all you fans needed. The touch screen works outstandingly well and is really bright. the device makes a bleep noise when you touch a button on the LCD and you can turn that noise off as well.
Just works for me.

Cons: Has flaws because of the price

The Plug to power the device was very flimsy and almost broke it by squeezing it to hard when plugging it in. This Item has to be screw in and doesn't work on non screw systems. It didn't come with instructions either so I had to learn how to use it online. I cant take my front pc case cover off without removing the device. Cables are kind of a mess because you have moles and 3 pin on one cable. Make my fans louder when turning the down.

Other Thoughts: If the company had charged 10 more dollars and put in more effort the product would have been a 5 egg product. But the went cheap and it has definitely some problems. Also a product like this should have a manual and warranty.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We deeply apologize for this yes it does in fact require screws to screw in the fan controller or else it would have a fault of coming loose. If you have any issues along the way with the unit becoming defective please let us know were here to help you. You can visit our website at support.nzxt.com once there you would need to submit a request. We would also need an invoice on file for the unit as well, if you have any further questions or concerns feel free to contact us directly at +1-800-228-9395.

4 out of 5 eggsPlastic

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: Controls my array of assorted molex and three pin fans. Regulates voltage from 100% down to 40%. Versatile.

Cons: The touchscreen is loud. Fan banks are selected one by one, not on demand. While aesthetically pleasing I do not see the need for so many temperature sensors, comes with five and two spares, five connections for each fan bank.

Other Thoughts: Made from cheap plastic and circuit boards. Long cords. LCD touchy panel sensor, does what it displays. Power drops off 40% - 0%, nothing lower than 40%

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: -Easy to install

Cons: -Would have liked a bit more instructions

Other Thoughts: -At first I pluged my fans ( x4 AF120 red led ) with the 3pins AND the POWER connectors .... Couldn't control the fan speed, tried without the power connectors, and was able to control the fans.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: Looks nice, pretty easy to use and install. Does what its intended to do.

Cons: I bought two of these about 18 months ago, and now both are broken. The first caught fire about 6 months after I bought them. I was lucky I was home, otherwise it would have destroyed my fiance's PC... and also possibly my apartment.

Despite that I continued to use the 2nd one until recently, about 9 months after purchasing them the 2nd one had the 1st fan controller power short out effectively reducing the amount of fans it could handle by one.

Last week the 2nd channel also burned out, now it can only control 3.

So the lesson learned here is... I bought 2, and they both broke within a year. One is at least stil usable... but I fully intend to replace it with a unit not made by NZXT.

I would never recommend it.

Other Thoughts: I contacted support about the one that caught on fire... they didn't really seem surprised, or particularly apologetic that they could have destroyed my computer and possibly my home.

They offered to replace it, or refund credit... but I mean comon? after one caught on fire... do I really want another one? (and now that 2nd one broke too, absolutely not) and as for credit one catching on fire was enough that I'll never buy from them again.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks, but not without issues.

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: So, it works. Controls fans and controls them well. Temp reader is accurate, nice design, everything works, but...

Cons: The controller makes the fans buzz. You could argue that the controller doesn't do that with all fans, but I didn't buy the thing to get special fans for it. One final thing, is that one cable slipped out of the connector on the controller board! I was able to slip it back into the connector, but it worries me a little having a cheap cable connecting everything.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We do apologize for the inconvenience, sentry 2 should never cause your fans to emit a buzzing sound in turn to full test out whether it is a the sentry 2 or the fans themselves . We would highly recommend connecting the fans directly to the motherboard just to check if it’s not the controller or the motherboard causing the issue. In the end we can offer a parts replacement for your sentry 2 all we would need you to do is visit our website at www.nzxt.com/support/.Once there you will be able to proceed forward with a request for an RMA. We would also need the invoice on file as we base warranty off the initial date of purchase. If you have any further questions or concerns please let us know.

Regards,
NZXT Support.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Controller

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: This fan controller functions exactly as advertised. The screen looks pretty, and the touchscreen works perfectly so far. I also like that it comes with temp. readers that you can place anywhere in your case that you want, so you can get an accurate understanding of which fans you need to be sure are moving enough air. The interface it simple and easy, once you figure it out.

Cons: The package does not include installation instructions, but anyone with a grain of common sense can figure it out after a minute of inspecting the cables, which are all clearly labeled.

Other Thoughts: Just a heads up, this unit is made of somewhat flimsy feeling plastic on the sides. Not really an issue, you just need to be a bit more careful when installing it. Once it is installed, however, it literally doesn't matter.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks As Expected !

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: It works exactly like you would expect!
Nice touch response, easy menu & nice looks

Cons: It'd be nice to have sleeved cables since you have about 40 feet of cables in there (not 40 feet but alot)

Other Thoughts: Does it's job !

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: Works very well with my case fans.
Looks really cool.
Easy interface once you figure it out.

Cons: Not any serious cons. Installation was somewhat tedious and wire management out of the box is somewhat poor. By poor I mean there's a lot of wires coming from this thing and tends to get tangled up in the machine. Along with that the interface is a little confusing at first and the manual is not helpful at all. But its simple once you figure it out. Also as other reviews have mentioned its compatible with 3-pin plugs and has some molex plugs. This wasn't a issue in my case but its something to consider if you have fans with different pins.

Other Thoughts: Overall despite my long explanation of cons I do recommend this product. It works very well and looks very cool and is worth the price.
