The Sentry 2 is NZXT's latest addition to their Sentry fan controller
series. Unlike the Sentry 1, the Sentry 2 features a colourful touch screen
interface in order to make the fan controlling experience much more
intuitive. Furthermore, the colourful interface of the screen will certainly
add a hint of modern looks to any computer system. Asides from the touch
screen interface, the Sentry 2 packs many worthwhile features such as
support for five case fans, five temperature diodes, automatic and manual
fan control modes, and 10W per channel.
Although fan controllers with knobs make up the major part of the market,
the Sentry 2's flat bezel will be very helpful for consumers that have a
computer case with a front door that could potentially interfere with such
knobs. Given the fact that touch screen interfaces are not broadly used
amongst fan controller manufacturers, it will be most interesting to see if
NZXT has hit the right notes in making the Sentry 2 a good product.
