    Lets face it. A lot of the fans we see for sale are cheap junk.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of some really high quality fans that have a long life?

    Chasing something that is 30mm, 40mm, 50mm or 60mm.

    NMB (Panaflo) might be worth considering. Not as easy to source as they used to be (I remember buying Panaflo branded ones from PCCG a few years back).

    If you run any fan at a lower voltage, you almost always increase it's life.

    Do you want new or used?

    How many are you chasing?

    Why are you asking for 30 or 40 or 50 or 60mm - don't you know what you need?

    What sort of airflow do you need?

    How much noise can you tolerate?

    Noctua recently dipped their hands into the industrial market, not sure on sizing though.

    These are pretty sweet units. 10-15 years ago they were all anyone wanted (unless you could tolerate a screaming delta). I have never had one fail and have had them running for very long periods of time. Proper Panasonic industrial kit. You can often find them new on Ebay.
