Manrose XF100H 20W Axial Bathroom Fan
Overall good piece of kit
Not the most glamorous or elegant fan, but it does the job well enough. It's noisy but not too noisy and doesn't vibrate like the old fan did so the noise is loud in the bathroom but doesn't transmit to adjoining rooms. The timer is easy to set, the humidity detector seems to work fine. It has two screws to mount the front plate which isn't as neat as some other fans, but hey - it's pretty cheap. Overall, good product, but not the quietest.

Bought as replacements
I bought two of these to be replacements for 10 year old timer models from the same supplier that had worn out. They work well as described in the advert. My only gripe is that the manufacturer has changed the screw hole and the cable entry locations This meant that I had to carve up my brand new devices before fitting. Unlike other reports these do not protrude any further into the room than the originals .

2nd time working fine
First one continued running indefinitely but the 2nd seems to be doing the trick. Only time will tell.

Had two of these fans now in my new bathroom. The first one was faulty when first installed so I exchanged it without a problem. The second lasted for about 4 months then the bearings started to make a racket then it wouldn't switch off automatically. Seemed like a good fan at first but has proved useless in the long run. Look for something a little bit more expensive and it should last longer.
