Out with the old, in with the NEW – III

I think I might aswell make a series of these as I have loads, quite a lot of stuff broke lately in the last month or few and has had to be replaced, plus some cheap shit I bought when I was broke is just bad so it needs to be replaced with something decent.

One of the ones that surprised me was the fan, it wasn’t the cheapest one..I bought it from Tesco quite some time back.

I woke up in the middle of the night when I heard a big crack…the freaking fan in my study broke.

The top completely snapped off…

So I proceeded to Tescos to acquire a new fan, I think the the problem with the old one could be attributed to fact it’s not push button, it’s power settings are changed by a slider, which is inherently bad for something that’s quite tall and thin…

Khind Fan

I bought one with push buttons, so fingers crossed it’ll be ok, it was horrible with all my computers on and no fan!

Can you guess what the next “Out with the old” will be?

    All my fans spoilt too.. then I noticed only the one with the most basic functions, i.e. push buttons one will last… Those with remote controls will nvr last for more than 2 yrs

    All my fans fail too… remote is the 1st to go and now to save cost, I use duct tape to hold the joints 🙂

    A good replacement for that fan – one of those Mistral ones, totally stepless speed control, can even stick them on the ceiling as air-conditioner booster fans. Unfortunately they only come box shaped. 🙂
