Terrrible Product 3 of 4 got noisy within 2 weeks.

Strengths of the product

Only 40MM fan Memory express had in stock.

Weaknesses of the product

Cost Quality Longevity

Additional Comments

I purchased 4 of these fans to replace the 40MM fans in a Switch. After installation, 3 of the 4 are now making rattling noises within 2 weeks. Worst product I ever purchased at Memory Express, With this type of a failure rate these fans should be discontinued. Waste of almost $50 and 2 hours of labor. TBH after reading Chris's post i didn't think they would sell a product that fails as easily as he said, apparently they do.

Quiet but very short life

Strengths of the product

When I first bought this fan it was very quiet I guess it looks pretty good? High static pressure and decent airflow

Weaknesses of the product

Bearing life is terrible - after about 6 hours of runtime the bearing started to make some noise. After 30-40 hours it was unbearably loud. Unfortunately I waited to unpack and install this fan until past the return period so I'm stuck buying another fan.

Additional Comments

Don't buy this fan.

Strengths of the product

I used these to cool some car amplifiers mounted in a tight location, they move lots of air and aren't loud at all!

Weaknesses of the product

Way too much packaging...

Additional Comments

Gets the job done at a fair price.

BEST 40MM IVE EVER TESTED

Strengths of the product

Extremely high static pressure for such a thin little fan. Very quiet

Weaknesses of the product

Cost way more than other choices Packaging is not environmentally responsible. It's twice as big as it needs to be.
