A new way to keep a fan onsite for the right price is to build your own fan unit, and there’s now a growing number of options.
But before you start, you’ll want to know the pros and cons of each option.
We have the scoop on the most popular models and reviews for each one, and we also have the latest news on the latest in air cooling, the new Xbox, the upcoming Samsung TV, and more.
Here’s a quick rundown of the options.
Industrial fan unit: The most common model is the fan you’ll use in your living room.
It’s a mechanical design that looks similar to the one found on your desktop computer, but instead of being bolted to the wall, the fan has to be mounted on a pedestal.
It comes with a built-in fan controller, which allows it to be easily controlled by your TV or other devices, and it can also be set up to automatically spin up when the fans are turned on or off.
You can buy a model that includes a built in fan controller for $150.
This type of fan is popular among gamers who use it as a stand-alone device to keep their games from freezing up, and is generally recommended for home theater use.
The best fan controller deals tend to include a one-year warranty, though it does come with a limited number of fan speed settings.
You’ll need to get a separate fan controller with the unit for $100 or $150, and you’ll need a fan controller compatible with your computer.
If you’re looking for something more compact, the $30 Fan X1 from Fan Xperience is the only option for $50, while the $40 Fan X2 from FanXperience also comes with one-month warranties.
If it’s a budget option, you can pick up the $50 Fan X3 for $60, but the $150 Fan X4 from FanZette sells for just under $100.
The $90 Fan X5 from Fan Zette also comes pre-installed with an optional Fan X6 controller, but it’s not compatible with most PC or Mac computers.

The Fan X9 kit from FanTech comes with the Fan X10 controller, while a $90 fan controller called FanX10 includes a $30 controller.
The fan controller is designed to work with all popular models of fan controllers, and can be bought separately for $10.
The unit comes with built-up air inlets that help keep your fan on for long periods of time, and a heat sink to keep it cool.
You won’t find a better deal in this space than the $75 Fan X11 from Fanxpress, which comes with an $80 controller and two fan speed options.
You don’t need an air inlet or fan controller to get this model, though, and the FanX11 includes a full-featured fan controller that can operate on multiple computers.
For $100, you get two fans for $25, and FanXX11 also includes a one year warranty.
