Introduction:

Today we have a new product from NZXT on our bench - the Sentry Mesh Fan Controller. It is an addition to their line of in-case fan controllers.  NZXT is well known for manufacturing all kind of PC components such as fan controllers, case fans, PC cases, power supplies and more.  NZXT also manufactures some peripherals for laptops and PCs.

First Impression:

The NZXT Sentry Mesh Fan Controller comes in a very plain cardboard box as you can see above.  It has some very simple graphics that are done in black. Once we remove it from the box, we can see that it is shipped in a plastic bag along with the mounting screws. The installation instructions are shipped in the bottom of the box, but I doubt you'll need much help getting this installed in your system.

After removing the NZXT Sentry Mesh Fan Controller form the bag, we can see that the front is simply covered in a steel mesh.  Who would have guessed that?  It has five sliders for adjusting each fan connected to it and the NZXT logo on the right side.

The NZXT Senrty Mesh Fan Controller is mainly constructed of plastic except for the front mess and circuit board. I would have preferred that it had been constructed from aluminum or steel.  On the other hand, with it being plastic you don't have to worry about it shorting anything out if you carelessly plug wires in while the system is running.
