Closer Look: Installation
Installing the Sentry Mix is no different from installing an optical drive. The sides are extended well enough so that even tool-less bay cases will have no issue securing the controller in the bay. Although the solid faceplate does not blend with mesh quite as well as, say, NZXT's Sentry Mesh, it's not quite as much of a bother as I had initially thought. All of the LEDs light up uniformly and are diffused enough that they aren't bright to the point of annoyance, but not so much that they are difficult to observe. The white color, however, is rather dizzying. Particularly when viewed directly or close to it and then averting my gaze, the RGB spectrum is visible for the briefest of moments. Doing this continuously only makes the effect more noticeable and the nausea more pronounced. I recommend not using this color. Otherwise, all is well.
