Acousti Silicon Grommets = FAIL

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
In short, don't buy these!

After falling in love with the grommets that come with the SilenX fans (as much as one can fall in love with grommets, anyway), I decided to purchase more grommets from SVC to go with the fans I was ordering from them. SilenX doesn't sell their grommets separately as far as I know, so I didn't have any other option...

They are not durable at all! They break easily, do not stretch very much, and won't even fit through holes that are the diameter of their shortest width without breaking.

I have e-mailed SVC and informed them of the crappy performance of this product, as I have been very pleased with SVC in the past and they don't sell inferior products in my opinion. This is a good way to see what their customer service is like, as well.

Just trying to save you guys some cash!

Well, I see that there are few of us who use grommets apparently.

it's actually good to know someone else's use of a product wasn't a good experience. I just don't think you gave it anough time to get responded to. Or, maybe everyone just wrote in to tell them how crappy their product is.

The Grommets sucked for me to. I ended up using them on other mods about the case.
