NZXT Sentry-2 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Watch Out for Nosey Power Supplies 08/18/2014

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

Pros: Works good. Can Place probes where you want them. Comes with extra probes. I like these things.

Cons: Does not work well with noisy power supplies.

Other Thoughts: I bought several of these. I had some where the temperature reading bounced around all over the place. I RMA'd a couple of them. I got to thinking that maybe I had a noisy power supply (EA-650). I changed out the power supplies, and now the temperature readings are rock stable. So if you have temperature reading that bounce all over, then it is most likely a noisy power supply. The units that I RMA'd probably had nothing wrong with them. I wonder what else those noisy power supplies were doing.

SanDisk ReadyCache SDSSDRC-032G-G26 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Changed My Mind About This Product 07/26/2014

This review is from: SanDisk ReadyCache SDSSDRC-032G-G26 2.5" 32GB SATA III for Windows 7 and Windows 8 -based PCs

Pros: Does work as described and it greatly increases the speed of my Win7 64 bit machine. I am happy with it. Please see other thoughts.

Cons: Could the also offer a 64G version?

Other Thoughts: I previously gave this product only two eggs because it would reset the cache every time I booted into another operating system that also resided on the drive that I was caching. Now that I have moved the system that I am caching onto it's own hard drive, the drive no longer resets it's cache when i boot into another operating system. I make sure that none of the other operating systems touch the drive upon which the cached system is residing by hiding in the boot manager and removing drive letters. If those points are followed, then the cache resets will cease, and it will work for a multiboot system.

2 out of 5 eggs Need to Revise My Previous Review 07/20/2014

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

Pros: Looks good on the front of the case. Works well when they work. Can control 2 pin fans.

Cons: Previously, I gave 5 eggs and a grand review of this item. I must of gotten lucky on the first one that i bought because I bought three more of them, but it has not gone so well. Of the three that I bought, I have had to RMA 2 of them back to Newegg (not Newegg's fault at all). The two units that I have returned have temperature readings that jump all over the place. The temperature keeps changing as much as 10 degrees C in just a couple of seconds. That is not acceptable. Now I have to pay shipping back, and that has got me upset. I did pick a couple up on sale, so maybe I will have the regular price into them after the RMA shipping costs.

Other Thoughts: I thought that maybe I had a noisy power supply for one of the RMAs, but when I got the new unit back, the temperature is only jumping around a couple of degrees, and it is not too bad. Is stable on some of the channels. Before I send the second one back (today), I am going to pull all of the temp probes out and put them in a thermal insulator and see if the temperature readings still jump all over that place, Since thermocouples have a low signal output, they might be picking up some noise, but i doubt that will do any good because when something is not working right, it is not working right. It's too bad that there is trouble with some of these as they are pretty and have the potential to work good. Everything is so cheaply made these days. Hot glue and just cheaply made. Why can't they put a few extra dollars into the design and quality and make a better product? If I had to do it all over again, I would have went with something else. I may yet return them all and go with something else. I wish that they would all work as well as the first one that i bought.
