Pros: They all work and are quiet. They're fans. They spin and do the good air moving thing with the blades and the power and the wind.
Cons: Doesn't chop up a banana when banana put through the fan. Very inconvenient as this machine is located in the kitchen and takes up valuable counter space with no apparent cooking utility. I do, however, use it as a vent hood now.
Summary: These are good fans for the price but they are sleeve-bearing fans so they must be mounted so they are blowing horizontally (case of fan is vertical) otherwise they get noisier and have shorter lifespan. Not good for top case exhaust. Also, I have 3 of them setup on a PWM splitter so that one motherboard header controls the speed of all three of them and they are all powered from the power supply (as not to blow the motherboard header).
Summary: I installed all of these backwards, inadvertently creating massive amounts of correct airflow in the case. These fans literally make the stupid things you do turn out awesome. I keep one on me at all times in case I get in a jam and need to stupid my way out.
Summary: I had a few 5 W, 12 Vdc solar panels sitting around and decided to use them to create solar powered vent fans. These fans worked well for the project. Very quite and move enough air around to make them quite handy for the task I had for them.
Summary: Cheap and quiet, can't beat that. I read in forums that these weren't good for horizontal mounting like in the case of top mounting exhaust configuration. I haven't had any problems with these all the time I've had them.
Summary: perfect pushes not as lot air as noctua 20$ things but for it's price it's the best and i could not hear any of them plugged in all 4 putted right near me and was listening at max speed 1200rpm and i must say it might be even quieter than 19dba that's written on product specification putted one in my pc front to take air in and in fron of it is located hdd which was always at 36+ celsius now it's not going more than 34 celsius always loved cooler master for affordable...
