@ 2003/03/06
I'm confused.. in this review
http://www.iamnotageek.com/modules.p...id=50&pag e=1

you can see they say they have a PC-Mods rheobus..

however.. it clearly stated here by Polyp & other that it is a no-name one

Welcome at our forum ~77~
@ the idea of anything Packard Bell!! Alot of people do OEM products... look at all of the heatsinks out there, many are just relabeled OEM devices. Just about every one OCZ has ever sold can be found elsewhere with a different name on it...

And, thanks for the welcome!!

No problem!! I don't get around to many other forums... but I have always liked the name of this place!!

Is the site based in Belgium?
Comment from jmke @ 2003/03/07
yep that's the one!
thank you for your time :-)

OK... I understand now. I saw people suggesting I was wrong (which I have learned to live with, haha), but wasn't sure what the issue was this time... No big deal.

I guess whoever manufactures them leaves them "plain labeled" for OEM type sales. But, the specific unit I reviewed was provided by PC Mods and can be found on their site here: http://www.pcmods.com/details.asp?ProdID=597

Hi, thanks for your reply

it seems indeed the sunbeam comes in pretty much the same package.

was just wondering cause in the local HW stores in Belgium these rheobuses aren't called "PC-Mods.."

it's called "Klax Fancontrol Unit"

on this dutch .nl site

exactly the same model , again

they try to confuse us!

Hi... this is the reviewer!!

I was registering to reply here when I received your e-mail... what a coincidence. My HTTP referral log lead me over here, so I though I'd say Hi.

Not sure what people think we're wrong about, but this is a summary of what I said in my e-mail, perhaps it will provide clarification although I am not sure what the issue is really:

I do not think that PC Mods manufactured it, but they are selling it without
a brand name other than their own advertised... The packaging mine came in
does not mention any manufacturer, so since PC Mods provided the review
sample, and they are the reseller, I am referring to it as the PC Mods 3.5"
Rheobus. I have seen a few other sites posting reviews of this item
recently, all sponsored by PC Mods as well, and they also refer to it the
same way. Like this one, for example:

If I had to hazard a guess, I would say the manufacturer is Sunbeam Tech. I
did a review a few months back on another rheobus and it came with similar
packaging, documentation, and accessories...

don't know for sure, I asked the reviewer @ Ianag to see if he could clarify things
Comment from B|oweFish @ 2003/03/06
guess so...
Comment from jmke @ 2003/03/06
indeed, got one from Polyp, it looks exactly like that one, but it isn't from PC-Mods at all..

could IANAG.com be wrong?
Comment from B|oweFish @ 2003/03/06
hmm i've got one to..

Noise Isolator is printed on the box.. I've bought it @ Cosh and their selling a Noise Isolator 4-Kanal Fancontroller ( http://www.shop.erfrier.net/warenkorb.php3?nlang=1 )
