Well first of all, I don't know why they would sell this item for $50. It is only worth about $15 if it worked.
After installing my own battery, I was able to turn the fan on. I was amazed at how loud the motor was. I don't believe the fan itself is what makes it loud, but the motor. It sounds like a loud electric razor. There is know real air flow coming out of the fan.
Proto's site says it is 2-speed...is off now considered a speed.
It seems to make the goggles less comfortable because my forehead was pressing against the backside of the fan. No I don't have a big forehead. I seems it should have been made thinner.
I is too loud to actually use. It is not worth more than $15 (if it worked right). If you can get it for free like I did, it would be worth getting because you can lol about how ridiculous the MS-RP and the acoustics of this fan are.
I have a friend who rigged up a small computer case fan running off a 9-volt. I would suggest doing the same; add a potentiometer/rheostat to give you infinite adjustablity in speed of the fan.
I gave it a 1 because it seems to be a total waste of money.
1 out of 10
