Manrose MF100 W 100mm Mixed Flow Fan
EARLY DAYS YET
Bought to replace an in-duct fan of a different make that only lasted 4 months. A fan to clear a bathroom of steam that shorted out due to water/condensation on the circuit board, when it was specifically sold for that purpose! What's that all about. An electrician friend recommended the Manrose model and the reviews looked ok.
Very pleased with the speed of delivery. Email updates on order progress. Ordered at 6.50pm one day and arrived early afternoon the next . Even got a text advising approx delivery time. Came in its own product box rattling round in a bigger box without any protective packing in between, but doesn't seem to have suffered from that.
Fitted and working shortly after. Looks fairly robust and have to say that it was much easier to connect up than the brand x one. Has little idiot labels to show where the respective wires go so no chance of going wrong. Feedback system forced me to enter a value against RELIABILITY, but unfair to comment on really as not been using it for long enough so went for a middle-of-the-road one. No noisy motor; only fan noise from the vent above the shower. I suspend the fan from an attic beam by wires so there is no chance of enhanced noise or vibration in the ceiling, and it also puts a nice slope on the flexi-tube to remove the chance of water lying in dips.
Overall, fairly painless for a first Screwfix purchase so won't hesitate to use them again. As an add on, my electrician friend said their prices are good and I compared against another well known company and he was right.

Excellent extractor fan
Very good extraction rate for a fan at this price. Very pleased and would install in another bathroom.

Good draw, quiet operation, easy to install. Did not have over-run timer but this would be easy to take from an old timer fan if required. cannot really comment on reliability as only just installed. Very happy
