They emit a lower noise pitch than Gentle Typhoons and are better CFM/dB
What the San Aces and Deltas have in common are fine and sharp tipped blades that actually prevents dust from building up on them. Not sure about GTs
Have you heard of the term "When one manufacturer gives a longer warranty it only means they aren't too sure about their product" ?
No they are not BS, they are probably correct in a certain way but different manufacturers use different techniques to measure their products. There's no industry standard. Perhaps the industrial manufacturers do use the same technique but for the consumer products it's definitely a waste of time to look at specs. And a manufacturer will probably want to look good on the box so assume manufacturer's specs are very "best-case scenario"...
That's what I meant.
No I have never heard of that term and frankly, it's nonsense IMO. So a manufacturer kind of knows he's making a crap product so he gives longer warranty so customers have a longer period of time in which the product can fail and they in turn can receive a free replacement?
There's little reason to give warranty as a manufacturer other than legislation and showing their quality is better than that of the competition.
A 6 year warranty is basically saying: We are pretty sure that this product will last you 6 years or otherwise we replace it for free (which is bad for us, since we had to produce something for 0 profit (and the costs of making it)). Not: It will probably break down after a while that's why gave it a longer warranty, because we love giving away free stuff and reducing our proft ...
Please, whoever said that deserves a good punch in the face. Maybe he forgot the /sarcasm tag or something?
Either way, it's off-topic.
The blades on the GTs are rather thick BTW. But personally, thick or thin blades, they all get dusty and I clean them way before I would actually notice dust on the tips.
And just to be clear, I don't think San Ace's, delta's etc. are bad. Not at all. But they do cost a pretty penny as well.Edited by Bloitz - 11/18/13 at 12:05pm
