2 years
Products Used:
none...but i'm looking!
Marker Setup: Trilogy with eggy2 & co2 with anti-siphon tubes(quite consistent)
Strengths: Gimme a minute, i'm thinking *jeopardy theme plays* sorry, nothing!
Weaknesses: Where do i begin?
Review: What a piece of junk.

1. noise:
everyone nearby knows when my fan is on and i always get comments on how loud it is.

2. defogs?
yeah, right! maybe you cannot be wearing your mask and glasses in order for this thing to defog your lenses, b/c that's what i have to do to get the condensation off my lenses; take this mask off!!

this fan doesn't circulate enough air to defog the windows on a hotwheel!!

3. price:
you pay more than $3 for this thing, then you (like me) are an idiot! $45+, dye is on some serious crack to charge that much for this piece of junk!
but, i was desperate, i needed it and they suckered me in. now mainly that's b/c the stores cannot keep JT fans on the shelf, they sell out so fast...should've been my first clue as to which fan to buy!!

4. construction:
cheap plastic with those cruddy little tiny screws that strip real easy if someone with man-strength tries to screw them in to close the battery compartment.

update: 10.2006 - can i LOWER my rating of this thing into the negative??
went to take this fan off my mask the other day after a game...yes, i still put the fan on there in the insane hope that somehow it will miraculously start working AS ADVERTISED. anyway, i pull it off my mask and *pop* there goes the impeller!! nice piece of junk dye, real nice. were i am man of anger, i'd have stomped that thing into the ground!

however, i am beginning to think that the ONLY way this thing has a rating higher than a "2" on this website is that dye has to be paying people to come on here and write positive reviews about their products. that is the only explanation for this piece of junk not being exposed as what it truly is!!
Conclusion: It should be criminal to make something this crappy and charge money for it!! dye makes a pretty good (expensive) mask, but this accessory has convinced me that my next mask will be from someone other than dye (ditto for barrels and anything else dye makes)

They are not made to be quiet they are made to ventilate.
Sounds like you got a bad one, send it back to dye and they would be happy to replace it.
Please delete this review as it is not true.
Thank You.
