NZXT Sentry LX SEN-001LX Digital Fan Controller

Benchmark Reviews

  • Conclusion: The Sentry LX arrived to me double boxed. Inside was a very nice colorful and well laid out retail box. Clear glossy color photos of the Sentry LX were there as well as the list of specifications. All this was laid out in a very easy to read and understand format. For such a small box it had more than enough information and best of all those beautiful color pictures of the product.
  • Pros: Solid construction, Beautiful appearance, Large LCD readout screen, Easy setup
  • Cons: Included battery was dead, Only 3 pin fan compatible as shipped, Temp probes add more work and clutter over standard fan control

NZXT Sentry LX

techPowerUp!
15 December 2008
  • Summary: The NZXT Sentry LX may not be cheap. At almost 60 € or 70 US Dollars, it costs as much as some computer cases out there. This means you can expect a lot from the unit as there are plenty of other, similar devices out there, at cheaper price points. The build quality of the Sentry LX is unrivaled by any other such unit. The thick aluminum front should look great in any case, but especially those all aluminum ones out there.
  • Pros: Great build quality, Bright display, Individual control of five fans, Auto or Manual setting for fans, Five thermal diodes attached, Two replacement diodes included, Battery included, to store settings when PC is off, Ability to completely turn off individual fans, Date & time display, Intuitive use, Looks great in any black case
  • Cons: Pricey, Reset button too easy to press, Takes up two 5.25 inch bays, Only available in black, Moving parts of the display may be distracting, No PC interface via USB for example

NZXT Sentry LX Fan Controller Review

  • Conclusion: The NZXT Sentry LX is one of those products that is very close to being perfect, it’s well made, looks great, is easy to install and just works very well. One of the things I really like about the Sentry LX is the large display where all the temperatures and information is easily readable from across the room, you don’t have to push any buttons to see the temperatures or speeds of the fans, it’s all right there for you in plain view.

  • Excerpt: Rejoice! More shiny goodies have graced my doorstep this week. This one takes the form of the NZXT Sentry LX Dual bay Fan controller LCD unit; designed with the sole purpose of making my computer infinitely more awesome than 14 yr old neighbours, despite the fact he'll still kick your ass at Quake/Unreal/Team Fortress.
