    Petra's Tech Shop Opinions

    I'm considering buying a set of fans from them seeing as they seem to have a good deal
    http://www.petrastechshop.com/12yalod1cafa.html

    however I've never bought from or even heard of them until recently (I usually stick to newegg/zipzoomfly)

    Their website seemed kind of simple and lack luster but i know that doesn't necccarily mean anything, so I decided to check their reseller rating (http://www.resellerratings.com/store...h_Shop_ShopPTS) but with only 93 reviews in the past 6 months, I'm not entirely convinced of that 10/10.

    and so I ask you good people of OCF, of those of you who have made purchases from this vendor, your thoughts?

    I made my first purchase from them recently (last week or two). Shipping was fast, the packaging was done right and everything arrived safe.

    I got a hand written thank you letter for my purchase. Hard to beat that!

    So... one purchase a good history does not make, but it is a fantastic start!


    I'm sure others will give quite a few thumbs up for PTS

    I buy all my fans from jab-tech.

    Edit: Petras is a very reliable seller, but as far as price, jab-tech is better and just as reliable.

    There's been a huge controversy re: Jab-Tech's Yate Loon fans ... hense why a previous poster said Petra's gets them direct unlike other stores.

    when you realize that you get cheap yates from jabtech ull start spending the lil extra to buy legit yates...

    Check out my comparison of jt low speeds vs petras low speeds.... jt's have a cheap small motor thats ment for an 80mm sized fan vs the legit 120mm fan sized motor in the petras.

    My cable box's DVR extra 500GB BlacX needed a new fan last week, so I picked this <15dBA fan from Petra's for like $2


    A dab of silicone on the 4 corners and the BlacX is back to dead silent again.

    Just like Jab-Tech, Petra's is on the top of my prefered vendor list.

    Doesn't a fan need a gap to hit the hardrive with enough air?

    There is a gap, I leave about 4-5mm between the fan and the hdd. The silicone dab can make the gap any size you want dependig on how much of a dab you use.

    Because I'm guessing measure CFM isn't cheap.


    Also measure DB is very very vvery hard to do it accurately, also all the companies measure dB differently (from 2ft, 10ft etc)

    Its just diffucult to measure CFM not expensive. As for db, if both fans sound the same at the same distance, then it hardly matters if one is less quality. Cheaper price beats out higher price if the db is the same.

    I have been very happy with all yates I have gotten from jab-tech, and at over a dollar cheaper, its fine for me.

    Back on topic, PTS is great to shop. I recommended them to a few of my clients and so far everyone was satisfied. They also answered every email from the clients when they had questions.

    Props to Alex for great Customer service.

    Petras and Jab-Tech are both great places. For Yate Loons, I would suggest Petras based on experience and researched over at XS forums.
