Customer Reviews

Compact, decent power

,

Like many reviewers, replaced the stock fan in my ReadyNAS duo with this one. Runs great (similar temps) but much, much quieter!

Louder then expected

,

Louder then expected at full speed in my PVR. Need to restrict speed to be usable in AV system.

Rubbers were not those in picture but ones with pull pin in both ends, suitable for thin (1 mm) sheet. There's also black screws included.

Item ordered yesterday afternoon, it delivered this morning! wow what a service! my readynas is whisper quiet now! thank you! Finally can leave it on all day!

Do the job

,

Put them on my CPU heatsinks. Not as effective in cooling as noisier fans but the benefits in noise - which is impressively low - outweigh the higher CPU temperature which remains in acceptable limits. Would recommend. Are what the quiet pc game is all about.

Sanity Restored

The noise and vibrations caused by the horrendous fan which ships with the Netgear ReadyNAS duo was driving me insane. Was recommended to buy one of these. Arrived the next day. Fitted in 5 minutes. Whisper quiet. Sanity restored.

Excellent

Thank you for super speedy delivery! The fans are great - silent and cooling my Thermaltake DH102 much more efficiently than the two standard ones.

Peace restored

I used this fan to replace the standard fan on my Netgear ReadyNAS Duo, and the difference is amazing. It's now possible to keep the NAS on all day while working nearby, and it doesn't distract. In fact, it was so quiet that to start off with, I was worried the fan wasn't working at all and kept getting up to check on the airflow. Maybe it was just me being ham-fisted but I couldn't get the rubber mounts to work, so used the standard mounting screws without any obvious detriment. I may well be replacing other fans on my computers...

Excellent replacement fan

,

As another review had done, I replaced the fan in my netgear NAS device, this time a Netgear Stora whose fan was incredibly intrusive. After a bit of fudging around I managed to get the fan to fit. It was no fault of the fan but the 3pin header was a different size the one on the fan to the one on the NAS, so a bit of splicing of wires was in order.

Anyway a very good, quiet fan than means that I can leave my NAS on permanently.

Good but not so quiet

,

As always, objective sound levels measurements are misleading. At full whack, this thing won't make your ears bleed, but it is not exactly quiet either. The only way we can achieve the close to silence experience is by reducing the rotational speed and for that a fan controller of some sort will be required. Nevertheless is difficult to achieve a precise control of speed with this fan. When set at 5v it still spins at about 1000 rpm which is higher that I can achieve with other fans. Crucially, however, at this minimum level it is definitely silent and still manages to push a considerable amount of air. As for the rubber mounts, they are a bit of a pain since you require a special thin screwdriver or similar tool in order to force them through the mounts on the fan chassis and they break rather easily. Also the item you get does not match the one pictured on the website. The ones I received have their chassis closed and not open. So a happy customer at the end with some reservations.

Shhhhh!

,

Great addition to my ReadyNAS. Before - the fan used to make a racket on startup and wasn't that quiet during normal running. Now - almost no noise, apart from HD noises.

Superb

,

Got this for a ReadyNAS Duo, and it's made it virtually silent, easily quiet enough to go in my lounge.
