Scythe Kaze Master Fan Controller
So how well did the Scythe Kaze Master perform in today's review?
The build quality and presentation of the Scythe Kaze Master is both solid and attractive. The inclusion of the VFD panel over a traditional LCD panel is also a nice touch; with the increased brightness of the VFD panel apparent. While some may prefer the Kama Meter's screen over the Kaze Master, or vice versa, both provide attractive and easily readable real-time data. It really does come down to the end-user's personal preference.
Fan control during the testing phase was excellent and temperature reporting was accurate. I still have a problem with the 'high temperature' alarm being set so high, however. The inclusion of an customisable alarm trigger would certainly be a welcome feature and somewhat more useful.
Pricing for the Scythe Kaze Master is close to that of the Scythe Kama Meter and perfectly acceptable. The slight price hike of the Scythe Kaze Master would more than likely be attributed to the inclusion of the VFD panel. Scan Computers UK
have the Scythe Kaze Master listed for £35.24 Inc 17% VAT
In conclusion, if I had to make a choice between the Scythe Kaze Master and the Scythe Kama Meter Fan Controllers I feel that the Kaze Master just pips the Kama Meter at the post. The inclusion of an easier to read display; better response to fan control and its slightly better looks makes it the ideal candidate for your Dollar, Pound or particular currency.
* Real time reporting without having to turn a knob to a different channel
* No changeable faceplates like the Kama Meter
* High temperature alarm set too high to be useful.
