Best extractor fan for bathroom

Looking for some advice, I had one of these for my en-suite and it worked well for many years (100mm variant)

until it broke.…

I then got a man rose unit from Screwfix which seemed like a similar spec but it’s not nearly as good In practise. Kind of makes sense as the blades of the fan are tiny vs the xpelair.

So I then bought another xpelair unit which only lasted 18 months before packing in so I’ve put the old manrose into service again.

So can someone recommend a powerful fan that is reliable?

IME the vent axia in line fans last 5 or 6 years with daily use, and are reasonably quiet.
