5 out of 5 eggsDurable!

Pros: Variable speed

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Bought this fan 11/25/2009 and it's been running 24/7 since then. Bearings are just finally starting to get noisy. Pretty impressive. I'll be picking up another!

5 out of 5 eggsJust about perfect.

Pros: Works like a charm.
Just plug into a usb and set speed.

Cons: At full speed it is noticeable, but I have a very quite system.

Other Thoughts: I removed the stand.
Replaced the nuts and bolts to hold it together with longer bolts.
I secured the fan to my computer desk on the side rear.
This was to draw (force) air flow through a filtering system I created in the cabinet door.
Hope it will help keep the dust down for when I clean my computer system. I live in a dusty area.

5 out of 5 eggsHandy usb fan with stand

Pros: quiet, comes with its own stand, adjustable speed, usb, includes retractable cord

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Handy item.
I have a router that runs a little warm. Placed this facing the rear of the router and temp immediately dropped by 20C.Nearly silent unless on full speed, and even then its very quiet.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat mobile Fan

Pros: Very quiet but still provides great cooling. Adjustable knob is great and seems sturdy. I have had no problems.

Cons: I dont like that the only way to turn it off is by unplugging it, but I can get over that.

5 out of 5 eggs4 Years and Still Going !

Pros: With speed control knob set at minimum the fan is very quiet.

On minimum speed we have two of these which have been running trouble-free for four years!

Using one fan as intake and the other as exhaust (both on lowest speed) these move enough air to keep our enclosed equipment cabinet cool. When A/V receiver is playing loud for a couple of hours the temperature in the cabinet is warm but never hot.

Cons: Orange color fan blades.

Increasing speed makes it a little too noisy for home theater use, but in a less critical environment i would still rate the fan as quiet when running at medium speed.

Other Thoughts: n/a

5 out of 5 eggsIdeal for my application

Pros: - Reliable 120mm fan with virtually zero bulk (the bulk being the stand)
- Excellent rigid metal stand with very little mass
- Low noise especially if below ~80% speed
- Adjustable speed knob (doesn’t seem like it will break/wear out)
- Metal grilles (front and back of fan)
- - Grilles can easily be removed for cleaning or other reasons
- Convenient retractable (via push button) USB connection cord utilizing flat cable
- - USB connection length measures 64’’ without a lot of tension (could stretch another inch or two but I wouldn’t recommend it) [162.56cm]
- On/off controlled via USB
- Practically unbeatable price + value when compared to other products in this application field

Cons: -Rigid metal stand can vibrated on some surfaces depending on fan speed (mostly unnoticeable but see below)
* * Rigid metal stand can be improved with sticky felt or other such materials to remove this Con
- Fan not simply replaceable without proper knowledge/tools (not marketed to be replaceable though…)
- Rigid metal stand not adjustable to modify fan vertical angle (at least the manual doesn’t advise as such)
- - Bending the metal stand to modify fan vertical angle could weaken the metal’s structural integrity if done repeatedly

Other Thoughts: I purchased 2 of these fans to help cool an enclosed tiered level entertainment center which houses multiple pieces of equipment (3x game consoles, 1x satellite television receiver, 1x surround sound receiver, and a mess of hidden cables). I had been planning to buy computer case fans and mockup the entertainment center myself but came across this product which is exactly what I had been designing and ended up highly satisfied. Now the entertainment center which used to be able to get up to 120°F (48.8°C) over prolonged periods of time will not go above 90°F (32.2°C) and averages around 75-85°F (23.8-29.4°C) which is a substantial difference. I setup both fans in a type of intake and output style, similar to a computer tower, and they generate a perfect jet stream flow which I measured with colored smoke.
The connection to the USB cable is a type of modified (probably proprietary) 2-pin power connector. The fan itself appears to be a 3-pin 120mm fan. Two of the cables for controlling the speed are wired off to the speed knob and the other two go to the 2-pin connector. I have no doubt if I wanted to swap, repair or replace this fan with another 120mm 3-pin, 4-pin or 3/4-pin fan I would be able to fairly easily.
In my application these two fans both power up when I turn on equipment inside of the entertainment center which is ideal as they turn off with the equipment as well. This could be a Pro or Con for some but is strictly a Pro in my situation. A small side note to this is the fans are truly very portable; I can connect them to a USB adapter on my smart phone or even my mobile battery charger pack and have the fans operate. A fully charged 4000mAh mobile battery charger pack that I’ve had for a while was able to operate one of the fans for well over 8 hours.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat fan for External Hard Drive Cooling!

Pros: The larger 120mm (vs 80mm version) is nice because the larger fan moves more air at lower RPM (and consequently less noise). You can hear a soft hum if you turn it to max but I've found that when dialed to about 80% and not placed directly in your face, you will barely hear anything.

I own 3 of the vertical standing (fanless) Seagate Backup Plus hard drives. They're among the cheaper drives and have a reputation for running hot. Looking at SMART monitoring data, my drives had hit >60C on several occasion with 69C as a peak...definitely not ideal. While there is some conflicting data about whether heat damages these external hard drive, I am of the firm belief that if not bad for the hard drive itself, will be bad for the other electronic circuitry.

I've been doing an external HDD-to-HDD transfer for about 4 hours straight now and the temperature has not budged beyond 38-40C.

My setup: 3 vertically standing Seagate Backup Plus drives with the TT fan set up behind it to blow air perfectly through the width of the air slats/vents of 3 drives. Why not get an external enclosure you ask? 1) Cost 2) Doing so would require all 3 drives to be persistently on. Also, I do believe that minimal use (backup drives) is somehow better than constantly on; if not the HD motor, then other parts or possibility of data corruption/loss.

Anyway, I can selectively plug in the specific hard drive I want. I'll leave the fan on regardless because it saps negligible amount of power (~3Watts). The box rates the fan at 30,000 hours (~3.5years) continuously makes the $23 bucks I spent a great investment.

Cons: No on/off switch; somewhat audible at max setting though from ~80% to 100% offers no real world incremental temperature benefit (for my use).

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Adjustable fan speed, 120mm fan, has a wire stand, USB powered.

Cons: wire stand is kinda flimsy but functional

Other Thoughts: I have a htpc that was running on the warm side. I wanted it to be located in a somewhat confined oak TV home entertainment cabinet. The ambient temp inside the cubbyhole of the cabinet was pushing 85 degrees while outside the cabinet was 65 degrees. The cpu fan was working overtime to cool and was quite noisy so I added a pci slot fan but the cpu was still to noisy and was still to warm for my liking. So in looking for a solution to get cool air inside the cabinet I stumbled upon this Thermaltake fan. I am very pleased with how quiet it is and now inside the cabinet is only slightly warmer than the outside ambient temperature.

5 out of 5 eggsThermaltake Mobile 120mm Fan, Adjustable Speed and Retractable USB Cable

Pros: *Adjustable fan speed
*Good Air flow
*Able to power from USB port frm. Asus router.
*IMHO not loud at full speed.
*Multiple uses with any USB power source (ie, USB A/C wall Ph. charger).


Cons: * Zero at this point.

Other Thoughts: Fan appears to be interchangeable w/ other 12cm/120mm fans if the Included fan quits working. Parts appear to be of sound quality. Unit has been operational 24/7,@ full pwr. approximately 2 wks. and without any change in performance.
