5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

This review is from: NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: Awesome little thing to add to any computer. Easy set-up, works great

Cons: The noise when you touch the screen is really obnoxious but, you can turn it off. Out of the box it is a little intimidating. The tape to put the thermometer onto the cpu is practically useless

Other Thoughts: Recommend

4 out of 5 eggsNice Controller

This review is from: NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: Works really well. Does everything it was supposed to out of the box.

Cons: Like other people say, the screen can be hard to read sometimes, and gets annoying. I mostly just got the controller to, you know, control my fans, so it's only worth an egg to knock off.

Other Thoughts: Good price for the build, feels and looks solid.

2 out of 5 eggsDOA

This review is from: NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: Awesome control for my fans, ONLY get this on sale, for 40$ its not worth it. Its a fan controller what can i say?

Cons: DOA, but newegg quickly replaced the first unit. Would not recommend because there are better fan controllers for the price. The touch screen can sometimes get hot/not work depending on my room temperature.

Other Thoughts: I am disappointed with NZXT, as they seriously need some quality control on theses units. Go look for a different brand.

1 out of 5 eggsBroken!

This review is from: NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: Cool looking.

5 out of 5 eggsworks great

This review is from: NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: Works great, set it to performance mode, stuck the thermal probe in the fins of my gpu heat sink, and I was good to go. All 5 fans adjust depending on my gpu temp.

Cons: Viewing angles maybe but why are you staring at it? Set it and forget it.

Other Thoughts: Yes

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful and is a pleasure to use.

This review is from: NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: The screen is an absolute pleasure to look at, control of the fans ranges from Off/40%/ and increases at 10% interval. Link mode is a welcome addition since it allows control of all 6 of my fans at once. 15w per channel can support up to 3-4 120mm fans. 1 Thermal sensor instead of 5 works wonders for cable management, I mean seriously, how many of us needs 5 thermal sensors?

Cons: Screen is washed out if looked at from a direct line of sight, but I don't know anyone who has their computer right in their face so it should be fine.

Other Thoughts: Wonderful product and simply the best fan controller I have ever owned.

1 out of 5 eggsfailing

This review is from: NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: awesome look and great build quality.

Cons: touch screen doesn't work. I opened the box hooked it up turned it on and the only part of the screen that responds is the temp read out :-( sry nzxt love your other stuff but this thing was junk right out of the box.

3 out of 5 eggsEh

This review is from: NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: 15 watts per channel
removable fan connectors
touch interface
black cables
shows RPM
can turn off sound and screen
detects failed fans
support for 3 and 4 pin

Cons: only 1 temperature sensor. the Sentry 2 had 5 with 2 extras. You CANNOT control your fans without a temperature sensor plugged in for some reason. So if your sensor dies then youre out of luck.

bad viewing angles. I have my pc on the floor so I cant see what im doing unless I lean all the way back and look at it from the front, luckily I learned how to configure it quickly.

White light bleeds through the 5.25 bay space

Other Thoughts: Overall I highly recommend the Sentry 2 over this. Both have a 2 year warranty both configure 5 fans and can be split, but the sentry 2 offers more temperature sensors, a better viewing angle, is 15$ cheaper, and can also be configured to power fans through molex.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggscontrols fans, horrid viewing angles

This review is from: NZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 Sentry 3 5.4'' Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: 1: Controls my fans well:
2: comes with extensions to reach every fan around my case
3: can turn screen of which is nice if you're room is dark

Cons: 1: VERY VERY bad viewing angles. if anyone has ever played a game on a nintendo 3DS, its 10X's worse than that. You have to looks perfectly straight on to see what you are doing.

2: the colors what you are selecting are blue and if you're not looking straight on, you can't even slightly make out what you're picking being that the touch screen color is close to the blue (you can see the touch sensitive parts of the screen when off, hard to explain in text)

3: Does not like tool's free mounting. My Corsair air 540 didnt seem to want to hold it (even with the one end locked in) i had to take about the 5.25 bay mount and screw in both ends. For some this is not an issue but how the 5.25 bay's sit in my case (sideways) its a pain.

Other Thoughts: the product quality is good. i really like NZXT stuff, i just find this screen very poor. a cheap 30 straight talk smart phone from wal mart has a better screen than this.

I recommend getting the NZXT Sentry mix 2 or mesh fan controller. they are just slider nubs. granted you can see the fan's RPM but at least you can see what you're doing without having to look straight at your case.
