Sentry LXE Areas Of Concern
OK, now on to some of the problems I ran into with the Sentry LXE. First and foremost is its desktop design, not only does it add another device to the top of your desk, but when the touch screen is pressed the Sentry LXE slides all over the place. Even though there are two thin rubber type strips on the bottom of the unit they do little to keep it from sliding around, so what does this mean? It means you have to use two hands to make any adjustments using the touch screen.
I feel it was better left inside the drive bays of the case as you could control everything with one hand, and it didn't take up much needed room on my desk. I mean come on, how many optical drives do you really need? Another big problem was the placement of the touch zones on the screen itself. They are way too close together. When trying to adjust the speed of my fans I found that the + and - buttons were so small and so close together that unless I was really paying attention I would be pressing both of them at the same time. The same is true for the various fan controller channels; they, too, are close together and at times it is very easy to press the wrong one. A great idea would be to remove the date and time from the unit and place the touch zones a bit further apart to make them easier to use and either make the base of the screen unit heavier or use something else to keep it from sliding around when touched.
