- Serves its purpose
- Brightness
- Customisable
- Easy to install
- Touchscreen is a bit slow
- Washed out colors
- Pricey
- Can't turn the unit or the fans completely off
- Placement of the probe
This unit does exactly what it's suposed to do : control your fans. It a straight forward box. You have a touchscreen that works very well, but that is slow for example when trying to turn the screen of the unit off. It takes about 4-5 seconds of hard pressing on the edge of the screen in a awkward position. The screen is very bright and isn't disturbing. It is too bright though when all the lights of the room are off, but not enough bright to burn your face off. It's very customisable with the power/quiet modes and the link system. When you look at the screen at an angle, the colors seems a bit washed out. If you look at the screen at an extreme angle, the screen shows 8's and all the bars full, like if it's starting up. Also, you can't turn the unit or the fans off. That isn't a dealbreaker for me, because I would have always kept the fans going anyways, but for some people that wants silence, that might be. It comes with a temperature probe, so you can monitor the temps of your case. It also has a spare probe if you break the first one. That is great, but it doesn't come with double side tape or some sort of mounting mechanism to mount it. So for me, it hanged by its wire on my cpu watercooler. I wanted the probe to be near the vital organs of my computer. This was the only solution. Fortunately, I'm about to put some tape now that my build is finished. The wires are tough so they shouldn't break. The unit was easy to install in my 5.25 inch drive bays, I only needed to connect my fans and screw the unit in. Very good unit overall.

Now for the conclusion, the only real drawback of this unit is its price. I don't know why it's that high, but there's not much that justifies it. I would get it on rebate. This unit does well is job and I recommend it. I would wait for a sale though if I were you. :)

Experience: 30 Days


Looks neat
cheaply made
Had to RMA the first one out due to the temp readout not working, and the link button not working.

2nd one I got was even worse, the rmp buttons wouldn't work, up down and the slider not working, and the temp readout was ---. Couldn't return to get my money back as the first rma took a month.

Experience: 6 Days


Nice screen size,easy to use,great if you have a rad at top of the pc
can't see the screen when looking up at it,made of cheap plastic
I bought this do to the fact I want to control my fan speeds at different levels for different components. was happy with the way it works but wish it was more stiff then the lose plastic it comes with.

Experience: 4 Days


Nice Visuals, Smart, Flexible,
Viewing Angle, No choice for a SATA power connector rather than Molex
First of all, I've read a lot about viewing angle issues that people had with the Sentry 3 and unfortunately i did discover that if you look at the panel from below, the display is completely incomprehensible, on the bright side however, if you look at it from above, the screen looks crisp and sharp. So as long as you have your system below your desk/eye level, you shouldn't have a problem reading the screen.
Features wise, you'll find some of the functions that come with Sentry 3 can be pretty useful but I didn't really consider having it adjust fan speed (via the thermistor) on its own so when i made the purchase so it wasn't much of a use to me personally. I do like that this controller lets you shut off the fans completely rather than keep it at 40% power and that it's also smart enough to spin up the fans to full power first before ramping it down (say when you go from 0% to 40% on the controller) to insure that the fans spin at a lower voltage.
Overall i went with this controller rather than the more popular and well regarded Mix 2 because the power is digitally controlled so it has some protection against power surges etc; and when you can see the screen you'll have plenty of power at your finger tips (75W) to control just about every fan you can fit inside your case.
