Review: Vantec Nexus Fan Controller


Recommended Posts

Vantec has released yet another stylish bay device. The NXP-201, or better known as the Nexus Fan Controller is the newest addition to adjustable fan rpm and loudness. But before you buy this at your favorite online store join me as I show you the problems I have encountered while owning the NXP-201.
A very nice review by our own Iroc! A must read if you are considering this product!

For sure, don't buy one without reading this review. Iroc doesn't pull any punches and you get the straight dope. Nicely done, my man.

Wow and I thought I was the only one that had the static problem with the Vantec controller.

I (kinda) have the same exact one and after a pretty good shock while adjusting a knob, mine quit working immediately.... all four channels! And mine wouldn't reset like yours, it was completely dead! :(

I sent it back to Vantec and I'm currently awaiting a new one. (That's why I said I "kinda" have one now.)

I hope they revise their design soon to cure this problem.

By the way, I too noticed the buzzing noise right off the bat when I installed it. I remember saying to myself, "That sucks... I thought it was suppose to help quiet your computer down."

Good review :)

Welcome, das7282! And thanks. We are totally honest with our reviews here. If we Hack somebody off, so be it.

Hey, welcome to COD and Rb is right, we won't sugarcoat it for anyone. On the sly you will hear a lot of people mention the buzzing, just not where anyone can hear them. As mentioned in the review, Sidewinder has had trouble with them also. It's frustrating to know about a problem that everyone agrees exists, yet does nothing about.
