Installation of the NZXT Sentry Mesh is as simple as can be, whether your drive bays require tools or not. The sides of the controller body are long enough that the Sentry Mesh is snugly secured within tool-less drive bays. Should your case require tools, then simply use the four included screws and tighten them up. Once installed, the Sentry Mesh looks damn fine. Further attesting to the build quality is the steel mesh NZXT has chosen to use — it is virtually identical to that used by Cooler Master's Storm Scout. If your case's mesh is of an identical style or at least very similar, the Sentry Mesh will blend in seamlessly.
Once powered on, little changes. It turns out there is one white LED under the NZXT logo, and it is rather bright. Depending on orientation to one's case, if channel five's slider (rightmost) isn't set at maximum, the LED may be clearly visible through the mesh and mildly annoying in very dark environments (left). Besides this one inconvenience, the Sentry Mesh is looking good.
