2 out of 5 eggsAtrocious CS, iffy product.

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

Pros: -Touch screen is cool if it works/screen in mint condition like supposed to be.

- pretty lights

- it's pretty concise

Cons: - installation is iffy at times because tolerances on the frame aren't perfect... which sucks because the screen is super fragile, so apply ANY pressure of any kind when installing and you might instantly end up with a dud as per experience 1 of 2 with these controllers.

- screen is SUPER thin and flimsy and the second there's any damage, the digitizer under it is kinda F'd, which means that chances are, nothing will be pressable. Which sucks, because it's only touchscreen.

- design kinda clashes with most case builds and looks kinda cheesy... reminds me of some cheesy CSI show.

- It has thermo-calibrated controls, but the probe isn't super accurate, and if you run the system without one, it will only go manual mode or "F that, I ain't running at all whatsoever and reading out 0000" mode.


- And the part that really wrecks house is that the customer service is garbage at best. Literally. I got dropped over the phone when I brought it up and No matter how many times I emailed or registered with NZXT, I would get absolutely no response aside from the automated "someone will be with you within __hours, [etc etc etc]." one when sending a message to the company.

That being said, I bought this because I thought there wasn't much better for the money out there. I stopped searching a tad too soon.

If you want anything worth your money, go Scythe.

Other Thoughts: I legit made an account on newegg to post this, the experience I had was so so so so poor for something that's only $35 now.

I even went out and bought a new replacement (other brand, Lamptron FC5v2... which is awesome, but the controls are too dang touchy, man!). That like never happens.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We deeply appreciate the feedback on our Sentry 3,we also do apologize for the two faulty units as well. It is true that the sentry 3 does have an issue with some 5.25 drive bays for other brand cases. Also the thermal probe picks up temp ambience within the case if applied correctly to the location it will accurately pick up the temperature of the CPU ,ETC. We deeply apologize again for the lack of communication if you can directly contact us again we would be able to assist you further +1-800-228-9395.

Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

5 out of 5 eggsNZXT AC-SEN-3-B1 SENTRY

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

Pros: This is a very nice fan controller. I have never used one before this one, but it sets up very easily and installs in a pinch. Functions very well. It also makes a blue themed computer come together nicely.

Cons: It could only be better in my opinion if it had PWM connectors on it. That's all.

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

Pros: I am in love with this thing. It's my first Fan controller to own but it's working great and was simple to setup.

Some of the points with the UI hard to see at any angle except straight on is bogus, you can clearly see the information on the screen at any angle.

Cons: none yet

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

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.
