Advertised Vs. Real Performance

This is probably the most crucial page, showing how accurate the data provided by the manufacturers/brands on their products is. Since nobody so far could verify these numbers, it was an open field for every brand to declare whatever it wanted, but this stops now. I should also note that I follow the specific guidelines (ISO7779: 2018) for taking noise measurements in information technology and telecommunications equipment strictly.

In the table below, anything in Red fonts means bad news, while the Blue fonts are good!

Advertised Performance Real Performance Difference
Max Speed (RPM) 2500 2461 -1.56%
Max Input Current (A) 0.45 0.44 -2.22%
Max Power (W) 5.40 5.26 2.59%
Qmax (CFM) 100 94.18 -5.82%
Pmax (mmAq) 4.66 4.07 -12.66%
Max Noise Level (dBA) 41.2 45.4 +4.2 dBA

The difference in static pressure is high, while in airflow, it is notably lower but still above 5%.
