The whispering thing – Multifunction Stainless Steel Shelled Fan for Electronics DIY (220~240V) Reviews

posted by RomByDan on 05/08/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Surprisingly well-built. Considering the price, I thought I'll get yet another cheap fan. You know, kinda like stock ones in most PC cases - just a bit larger and working off AC mains, instead of 12V DC. But when I've put my hands on it - I've realized it's a real bargain. The casing is made of some kind of aluminum alloy, and is massive enough to eliminate vibration. And when I turned it on, it was another surprise. I expected it to roar, but heard only a quiet whisper, barely noticeable even a meter away.
Cons:
None so far.
Other:
The wire was not long enough for me. It is sold as DIY thing, but already has a plug attached. As for me, I'd prefer it with bare wires. But it isn't hard to cut it off, so I won't count this as a con.
Bottomline:
Not only worth the price, but surprisingly well made. I'll definitely buy more of these.
