    Re: News - NZXT outs touchscreen Sentry 2 fan controller

    Wow finally something that is worth the price tag, all other fan controllers i see have some basic interfaces with buttons and cost £20-£30 and this should cost around that but has touch screen!. I still dont see the need though, i have a hiyatek(think thats the name) and it supports 6 fans has 2 LEDS per dial(i dont like them so took em off), comes with a 3" mount for say a hard drive and only cost me £7 from ebuyer and it does the exact same job. Its just a resistor, nothing fancy in any of these units i bet.

    It looks like the consoles off Star Trek! Didn't think it'd be that cheap with a touchscreen and all.

    Woh, only $29.99 for touchscreen. Thats not bad at all Better than any of the cheap plastic buttons on other fan controlers i'd guess.

    Though, the display does look kinda of cheap:

    its not an expesnsive thing to do a simple touch screen. In many ways its cheaper (no moving parts). They only get expensive when you need high levels of accuracy in where on the screen is been touched, and how big the touch is (ie stylus tip or thumb).

    Will be interested to see the price if it ever make it across the pond to us.
    But for the cost it looks very good, wonder what it uses for temp gagues on it's auto mode?

    Often its cheaper, when making a crude touch screen, to just use kirchof's principles!

    Looks good, but ...

    Seems rather cheap, but I'm wondering perhaps too cheap?
