Looks like a very nice fan controller for a decent price I would love to hear from anyone who's used one of these. I might throw one of these in the new box to.

I hope the view angle is larger than the older sentry. Looks good tho.

to be honest the left panel of info showing date/time could be replaced by something much more useful. like a card reader or even a graphical equiliser, or lots and lots of USBs, beautiful USBs (cackles)
