good fans but one died on me 01/03/2012
This review is from: Thermaltake A2427 Hard drive blue LED cooler
I purchased 3 of these about 5 months ago. Today i was looking at my pc and noticed the one for my middle drive was not working, and after looking closer the fan itself was bent and hanging slightly to the side...... I know it was working for at least 4 months before it died. But this is bad if a fan only last barely 4 months... I have an older thermal take fan from 2005 that is still going strong but the bearings are horribly loud which is why i purchased 3 of these new led fans. Ive had many fans before and non have died so fast. In fact most fans last me 2-3 years before the bearing even starts making nouse.
Overall these are fancy looking fans that do work well, but reliability of these is questionable.
So far the other 2 are going strong and very quiet, no bearing noise and working as they should be.
1 out of 3 purchased died on me in less then 4 months.....otherwise i would have given 5 stars.
Mainly mad due to having to spend time tracing wires behind my pc case due to having all my wires hidden/tucked away.....If one of these didnt die on me, i would not have to trace wires all morning... grrrrr.
I will have to buy another one of these to replace the one that died and so they match with my other 2.......
This time i labeled my hd power wires 1-3, so if one does die again it will be easier to replace.
