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.
