Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lisa Good Fan for the Price
This fan was easy to install in my duct. I purchased it to pull heat from my wood stove from the first up to the second floor. Works good - minimal sound.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DIYDiehard less than expected
According to the description, this fan unit is suppose to move up to 500 CFM of air. However, I plugged it in and the velocity of air coming out didn't give me confidence that it was even near 500 CFM. The motor is very small and just doesn't have the power to move that much air. The good news is that it is relatively quiet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PowerGuy A Little Light on Air Power - Couldn't Overcome Spring to Open Vent
I used this Fan to exhaust my garage using 'Speedi-Products 8 in. Round Galvanized Wall Vent with Spring Return Damper'. The Fan was unable to deliver enough pressure to overcome the resistance of the vent spring and so I removed the spring. As this is a garage, I'm not too concerned with a tight fit so the loss of the spring to hold the vent closed is no big deal.
There seems to be a mismatch between too little power in the fan and too much force to hold the vent open. I live at 5000' altitude, so this may be a contributing factor; it may work fine at sea level. Overall the fan volume of air is adequate and it's really the spring that is too strong in my application.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DHD Works better than expected
I was very skeptical that this would work. Placed in a duct leading into a very inadequately insulated mud room and it raises the temperature at times a good 20 degrees when the furnace runs. It is audible but not annoying as it's under the kitchen. When operating it outside the duct in free air it's very quiet so I don't think I can blame the unit. Use it with the inexpensive DS100 switch so it turns on when the furnace runs otherwise it runs all of the time. Very easy to install as it comes with the AC plug that plugs into the switch or wall outlet. In time we'll see how long it lasts.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BalashiMan Not as powerful a fan as I wanted
The fan is rated at 500 cfm, which should forcefully move a lot of air, but it is a very gentle breeze not very strong.
I bought the 8" fan and after a week bought a 6" reducer and new 6" flex duct which helped increase the air flow.

Moves the air as promised. My only concern after reading some of the reviews was - how quiet is it really? It's been running for a week, now, and I have to put my hand to the vent to feel the airflow to confirm it's running. It is very quiet.
