Started out good but now they are all failing

Strengths:

Price is very low I personally like the look of them and they have pretty good noise / performance ratio.

Weaknesses:

I have over a dozen of these in a lot of computers in my home that run 24/7 If they are mounted horizontally they start to develop some kind of wobble which then turns into an abrasive squeaking noise that is unbearable. Even the ones in the front of my case mounted horizontal have started giving me problems however. The lubrication seems to wear out at about the 2 year mark and the fans do not spin freely so they either end up stopping completely or move extremely slowly. These are all under warranty, but when i consider the cost of shipping them back and the resulting downtime i would have waiting for replacements it seems not worthwhile to bother.

Additional Comments:

Do not expect that just because these have a 7 year warranty that this means they will typically last this long. Despite the high failure rate i have had after a few years of 24/7 use that i have put these through I think that i will buy more, or perhaps buy the P-12's when they come in stock. This is mostly due to the cost being low, and the fact that when these are working they are very good fans. If you ran these for only a few hours a day perhaps you would see them lasting longer than me?

Good, quiet fan, great bang for your buck!

Kinda lame sticker on it. But who cares.

Would buy again for DIY cooling or a machine you're not really picky about. Completely happy with this fan.

Good value PWM fans

Strengths:

Cheap, reliable, reasonable volume. Good if you want a cheap PWM fan and you can throw them on a rad if that's your thing.

Weaknesses:

Colour may not match with every theme. Can be noisy under full load.

Additional Comments:

Buy this if you want a cheap, good, PWM fan that fits your budget or tastes.

None

Additional Comments:

I have 3 of these fans, and love them. The are quiet, problem free, and blow a good amount of air. I love that they are PWM and cost less than $10 each. I will always buy these when I need fans.
