Great price considering what you get!
By Amazon Customer
I gave this 5/5 stars because the fan is really powerful, and quality built with METAL fan blades. I stress this part because 2 other similar fans I purchased in the past died after 4-8 months when the plastic blades/impellar imploded and shatter from the high RPMs. The housing is powder coated aluminum, and although quite heavy, its light considering its size. Be cautious if hanging this in a grow tent, make sure your tent doesnt have plastic corner supports or it will probably snap with the weight of the lights, filter, ducting and fan. As long as your system is completely sealed, this fan is pretty quiet (1/2 the noise of kitchen stove fan on a low setting). Great job of moving air, keeping lights cool, and filtering smells.
Upate: For those that wish to know, the 4 inch fan moves 190cfm and draws 74 watts of power. The 6 inch moves 442cfm and draws 95 watts of power. The 8 inch moves 745cfm and draws 137 watts of power. Making the 8 inch the most efficent, followed by the 6 inch, with the 4 inch being the least efficent. Info was found on the instruction manual and i like to compare the cfm per watt used between brands.

Love the iPower Carbon Filter and Inline Fan Combo!!
I've read a lot of reviews prior to buying this product and I was leery, to say the very least but this 4" Fan Combo has resolved a lot of my tent growing problems i.e. noise, high humidity, smell, mold spores, having a clean growing environment. It is very easy to install, no assembly required. (YouTube videos on installation, if needed) If you are worried about sound, it is no louder than a high powered fan, the noise comes from the air being forced out of the duct. I purchased an insulated piece of duct which resolved the problem, and also a fan switch to control the fan's speed. So far, so good, I couldn't be happier. iPower gives you a 6 month warranty backed up with Amazon's warranty you can't go wrong with this set-up.
