    I'm looking for an in-line bathroom extractor fan with timer. Something along the lines of the Xpelair XIM100, the Manrose MF100t or the Vent-Axia ACM100t

    The three units seem to be much of a muchness, very similar in terms of noise, electrical power, flow rate and even appearance; the Vent-Axia is a touch less powerful but quieter, the Manrose is significantly cheaper but that seems to be it.

    So I was wondering if there is a recommended one. I see some have claimed the Manrose's long-term reliability isn't up to par, but aside from that, I seem to be reduced to picking one at random.

    If the cost of the TD Silent is too high the Manrose is absolutely fine. We have one in our ensuite and it clears it in no time.
