Excerpt: Almost a year ago, I reviewed the NZXT Sentry LX , and found it useful, but lacking in a few key areas. This week, I’m taking a look at the NZXT Sentry 2, and it’s obvious that NZXT was listening.
Pros: High Quality Components, Looks Swank, Installs easy, Super intuitive controls, Cuts noise, Conserves electricity, Wide LCD viewing angle, Half the price of the original
Cons: May require some additional cable management, Ships with poor thermistor adhesive
Overall the NZXT Sentry 2 is an improvement to the original Sentry controller. It brings a lot more color and functionality than the original. It’s very easy to use and it works just like it’s supposed to.
Excerpt: The first touch screen fan controller? Today I’ll be looking at the NZXT Sentry 2, the inexpensive younger brother of the Sentry LX I previously reviewed. The Sentry 2 fits in a single 5.25” drive bay and features a color touch screen to handle user interface.
Summary: NZXY Sentry 2 is a good fan controller. Its strong points are the presence of five temperature sensors and the capacity of controlling five fans, in manual or automatic modes. The high temperature and stopped fan alarms are also very useful.
Conclusion: Fan controllers have become just as unique as our computers. NZXT has added some of the best attributes of fan controllers into one simple easy to use unit. The Sentry 2 is easy to use, has a bright & large enough of a display to read our temperatures quickly and effortlessly.
Summary: When we power up the PC with the Sentry 2 installed, we really get to see where it shines. The touchscreen display is sharp and colorful, while not overly bright like a lot of lit accessories.
Conclusion: There were 2 problems with this peripheral. The most obvious one I’ve already pointed out: Cable management. There are 10 cables alone for plugging in your fans, and then there’s also the main power cable as well as some additional ones for whatever purpose (Due to a lack of instructions, I was...
Pros: Overall package and bundle, Compact, Wireless Connection, Software
Conclusion: De fancontroller is een leuk apparaat om vijf ventilatoren te bedienen. Alle basisvoorzieningen zijn aanwezig, maar ook temperatuursensoren en warmtebeveiliging die in te stellen zijn op de graad nauwkeurig.
Cons: hoeveelheid snoeren, goed wegwerken is lastig en afwerking niet mooi;, temperatuursensor-snoeren aan de korte kant voor sommige posities;, te weinig stickers meegeleverd om de warmtesensoren vast te zetten;, geluid van warmtebeveiliging te zacht en te irritant.
