Summary: Good fit for people that are looking for the following: 1) looking for an inexpensive cooling solution. 2) Do not care about fan noise. 3) Their receiver has an available switched power plug to connect the fan unit to. In comparison to the Niles cooling unit the Antec looks very cheaply made. If I didn't have a point of reference I might not feel this way. If the Antec had a trigger connector I may have not returned it.
Summary: This is a very simple double fan design enclosed in a plastic case and decorated with what appears to be aluminum. Unit does move some air but not what I expected. The components it serves remains a little cooler than without it but it is quite noisey as others have mentioned. Need to turn up the volume to compensate for the noise.Pricey for what it is.
Summary: Just took out the unit to use for a day. The product does what it claims and brings down the temperature of my Denon amplifier that heats up quite a bit inside my AV cabinet. There are two modes; low and high. Felt that the fan in high mode could be a little quieter but than again I didn't quite bother me as the cabinet door would have muted the fan noise.
Good for keeping things stacked on your amp or receiver cool

Summary: As other reviewers note, this unit is designed to sit on top of a component that vents through its top. It will help keep the component immediately below it cooler by helping draw air through it, and it will keep the component above it cooler by not letting the heat from below cook what is on top.
Summary: low profile. reasonably quiet. don't like the dust accumulation with these. They are very nice looking and people wonder what they are in the cabinet. Because of heat issues, i have gone overboard and got the cooler guys cabccol as well. Only issue i see now is dust which requires a little more cleaning than i am used to.
Summary: Used a couple of holiday gift cards for this item, it does the job, but this was made around 7 years ago, and it's limited design shows. No remote to switch between speeds or the off position, but again it does the job.
