All I have to ask is, what were they thinking.
Looks like the bit-tech stobbing case fan, Hrmmm, i wonder if bit-tech gave them permission to commercialize it : P
Hmm... Normally directron has ben about $5-10 higher than newegg or mwave, but $40 for a fan? No thanks.
don't those fans cost ~$15 to produce? (using breadboard)
Something like that
a) total ripoff-premod-tat
b) Bit-Tech should definately sue them
I not completely sure but i dont think Bit-Tech has it copyrighted so sueing wouldnt accoplish much, But they can ask directron to remove it or pay royalties
who cares? do you even need a reason to sue people these days?
If you're talking about this lighted fan mod, guess what? The Panaflo one was FIRST! Macro starts out the article by saying "By popular request here is the homemade mod for the lighted fan. Pcmods.com was selling this mod for $50". For those of you who don't know, Directron swallowed up PCMods right around this time last year, so in no way shape or form is Directron "stealing" from Macro.
Never said they did, But i missed that Line : P
My word, they're getting big, aren't they?
For $50, it had better make my computer go a good 600MHz faster, or it's a complete waste of $$$
Slight correction: it was actually CaseETC that they swallowed up. PCModes hasn't been swallowed up by anybody (yet). Nevertheless, PCMods started selling them first.
I see horizontal intergration...
i totally bought 4 of them
right before i killed myself for wasting so much money
you could make that for like £8 £15 tops with a decent fan, $42 blows
I have one of those. Or at least something close. Won it though, no way I'd spend that much on that thing.
PCmods produced the original fan. Koolvin reviewed and I modded it here. .
Brad Williams made his own version as linked to in whypick1's post above.
$42 for a fan is still $42 even if it has lights!
I can make my fan look good when the UV rolls and that was a grand total of £3 so im not chuffed, if your giving em away count me in
$42 :O just plan harsh for a piece of [crap]
