Small world, Pabst is one of the lines owned by EBM. I
don't think it's a question of whether they are worth the
money so much as can one afford a really good fan. but I
am biased: Noise, heat, and reliability are big issues for
me when setting up a tank. I just hates them cheap fans.
Some care less, some don't use fans at all.
