Vent-Axia ACM100T W In-Line Bathroom Extractor Fan
2nd purchase - very good fan
2nd time i've bought of these, this time to replace a cheap fan builders installed a year ago that has already failed. Previously installed one in an ensuite that has worked fine.
Easy to install in retrofit position.
ONLY problem was VA had stuck sticker showing airflow direction on the wrong side of fan which prompted a bit of head scratching once installed!
Fortunately the good design is such that it was a 1 minute job to switch around within the mounts without having to remove and reattach the ducting.

Powerful bathroom extractor
Got this to replace extractor in ensuite after we got issues with condensation with new power shower. Found numerous issues with old set up least of all a 6 meter run to the vent with use of standard vent ducting leading to 2 litres of water being drained from old ducting after bathroom refurb.
Got the vent-axia in-line extractor & insulated ducting.
Easy to install as can be in a loft space. Good mass flow/extraction, bathroom mirror still useable after showering.
There was some evidence of water leakage around the join on the vent inlet spigot after a week or so but were talking a couple of drips in the middle of a cold winters day.
Please with extraction rate. Time will tell on reliability, 3* (average) as not sure on this point as yet.

Needs a bit more work
The title refers to the terminal box. When you take the cover off to connect up, the circuit board can easily slide out of its slot, this leaves it vulnerable to damage. For this product, at this price, I would expect the terminals to be in one box and all the electronics and controls to be in another. I gave it 3stars for reliability, it has only been in for a couple of days so too early to tell.

Bought this fan for our en-suite and as it is in middle of house has a 7m long ducting to draw air out. So after 2 years of a steam and condensation filled bathroom along with one fan upgrade which made no difference decided to spend on a top of the range fan. After reading reviews this looked to be the one and after using for first time the en-suite was steam free and no condensation so although early days it looks to be a great investment so highly recommended.
