Especially since they have the exact same specs as the L1A. I'd chalk this up with today being the day of fools.

I just looked at the picture. The only thing that appears to be different from the outside is that it's listed as 1J above the model instead of the 1A.

I don't know if they're allowed to play pranks like this, but you'll certainly get a fan that fits those specs if you receive an L1A.

Look at that page on the right, under "RELATED ITEMS", an 80CFM Delta Fan. :shock:

Indeed very 'related'. :lol:

Guys, that is just a regular Panaflo L1A. Remember that the letter after the "1" is just the designator for the tail. About half the L1"A"'s that I have are actually L1J's.

All Panaflo's are Hydrowave bearing.

Actually, the difference between the L1A and the L1J is that the L1A comes packaged complete with a tail, whereas the L1J does not. Many places are tacking on their own tails to L1J's and selling them interchangeably with L1A's, however, so that's why it's a bit confusing.

I have always liked Panaflo's. However, after just putting some SilenX fans in my case, I'd never buy another L1 fan as long as SilenX' are available to me.

I'd still get their higher flowing fans though.

This ad's been posted on their site since Tuesday anyway, so I doubt that it's an intentional April Fools joke. Man, everyone's really on edge about this April Fools stuff nowadays.
