This thing does it's job, but it has so much potential.

Summary: To start, the retail packaging was full of typos and grammatical errors, as was the convoluted manual. It appeared as if a high school student with a general idea of what this product is took a stab at writing the documentation and they ran with it. After that, I expected the craftsmanship to reflect that. But to be honest, it works fine. Far better than the touchscreen variants.
Summary: I didn't realize this product only supported fans with 3 pin power connectors. Many fans on the market still have the traditional 4 pin molex connector. at the price point for this product NZXT should provide adapters.
Summary: The date stays right but the time does not work right. Going to try to exchange it. will let you know the out come. update amazon chat said I hade to contact manufacer. but then I hade amazon call ne and I am getting a replacment sent to me.
Summary: So I read all sorts of terrible online reviews AFTER I bought this product and cursed myself for not being more careful. Nonetheless, I figured it wasn't that expensive so I'll give it the old college try... When I opened up the package, I noticed there was a lot of hardened milky adhesive glue on the PCB - which struck me as shoddy work. However, I took my chances decided to hook it up to my PSU anyway (via molex connector).
Summary: All ability to see the digits on the screen is LOST when you go even 5 degrees above eye level. This is fine and never noticeable if your computer is on a desk, but all digits appear to be on full brightness regardless of their proper states if your computer sits on the floor. The unit is also beautiful, classy, impressive, and has a great fit and finish. The electronics aren't top of the line but perform well enough to give it a solid 3 stars.
Summary: Does a decent job of controlling fans. It saves your settings with a CMOS type battery even with long disconnects of power (unlike the Sentry 2). It has an odd way of controlling the fans, in that it registers the range of RPM available by each fan, and lets you control the fan by settings the RPM. This is in contrast to most fan controllers, which allow you to control by percentages (60% of max power, 40%, etc.). Not sure how I feel about this. Seems to work adequately.
Summary: The only place to install the sensors are on top of of the heat sink not below. If you install below the heat sink will crush the probes. Therefore you can't see actually temps. This unit can't be used to monitor temps other them ambient. It is a great fan control. 3 stars for the fan controller only.
Summary: As others have said, if you look at the display from an angle you can't read it. It also lost the time for me, I have not replaced the battery yet to see if that will resolve it. Everything else works. It is cool looking though!
Summary: I am using this product a little differently than it was designed for. Instead of cooling a PC, I actually wanted something to help control the heat in my entertainment cabinet. It houses a fire-breathing stereo receiver and an XBOX, among other things, and I wanted it to be a little cooler inside. I purchased a number of 120mm fans which I mounted to the back of the cabinet, and I wanted something I could use to control them.
Summary: Hello,I picked this unit up for it's ability to control numerouse cooling fans . I can, some what, control five fans and monitor temps of five components in the computer tower. Given the price of just under sixty dollars it's pretty good deal. If it was say, ninety dollars, I would knock it for hard to read numbers and medium amount of control over the fan rpms. It's is nice looking,works and so far reliable.
