Default Are any of these fan brands good?

Hello, i'm curious to know anyone's experience with anyone of these PC fan manufacturers because i want to separate my good fans from the garbage ones. (The good fans i would only use for projects that require a fan for cooling and the not so good fans would only get used for experimenting, prototyping, modifying or blowing up)
Note: If you click on the name of the brand, it will show you the sticker on the back of the fan i have.
Here are the brands i'm looking to get some more info about...
Delta I don't have any experience with this brand.
JMC I don't have any experience with this brand.
ADDA This fan is a bit louder than all of the other but it's also more powerful at the same time.
Jamicon The only thing i know about Jamicon fans is that they're made by the same Jamicon that make those cheap capacitors that may or may not fail prematurely.
T&T I don't have any experience with this brand.
Elna Fan I think this is a ball bearing fan. It's also made in japan.
Sunon I come across this brand a lot in electronics, mostly in computers.
Top Motor I don't have any experience with this brand.
Nidec I don't have any experience with this brand.
Sanyo Denki This is also a ball bearing fan and is also made in japan.
Power Logic I don't have any experience with this brand.
Yate Loon Out of all of the brands, i have the most experience with Yate Loon and they seem to be a decent brand.
Muhua Industrial Co. I don't have any experience with this brand.
SuperRed I don't have any experience with this brand.

So those are all of the brand i want more info about because it would also be nice for others to know what brands are potentially crappier than others.
Thanks.

Delta: One of the best brands, in my opinion, and that's also a ball-bearing fan so it should last quite a long time.
JMC: Never heard of it. Neither has Google for the most part.
Adda: Sleeve bearing, probably not very good.
Jamicon: These seem to usually do okay, but I still wouldn't trust it much, being a sleeve bearing.
T&T: All I can find on the bearing type is "oil bearing", so probably sleeve. Never heard of the brand.
Elina Fan: Never heard of it, and can't find any information.
Sunon: Sunon fans seem to last well, and that one is ball bearing.
Top Motor: I haven't seen these much, but it at least claims to be ball bearing.
Nidec: Pretty good brand, and it is ball bearing.
Sanyo Denki: Good brand, ball bearings.
Power Logic: Sleeve bearing and not a very well-known brand.

The best ones out of the group are probably the Delta, Sunon, Nidec, and Sanyo Denki.

I checked the fan to see if it was a ball bearing fan and it is! I did not know that.

JMC does have a website, it's www.JMCproducts.com . They seem to want people to call them badly as the first thing i noticed was the 'Call Us Today' in the upper-right corner.

The only other time i've heard of T&T is when the controller board in one failed causing a PSU to overheat and fail.

It's a ball bearing fan so can it be that bad?

Also did not know that fan was a ball bearing fan

Someone online was calling Power Logic a good brand.

Sofar it seems that these have been called the best brands and i did not even know that half of these fans were ball bearing fans which is nice to see.
But i do have some other brands which i forgot to add. (Three brands. I will be adding them in the next post)

Note: I edited the first post to have these brands so if you read the first post it now has these brands on it.
Here are the three brands i forgot to add.

Yate Loon Out of all of the brands, i have the most experience with Yate Loon and they seem to be a decent brand.
Muhua Industrial Co. I don't have any experience with this brand.
SuperRed I don't have any experience with this brand.

Those are the three i forgot to add.

I decided to check the fan and in appears to be a sleeve bearing fan.
But i can't really blame you for the misinformation because the fan is at least 8 or 9 years old.

The fan feels cheap so i'm not surprised.

So it's also a decent fan, cool.

You don't have any garbage fans, all are quite OKish.

I don't see any reason to throw any of those away...

The best are Delta, Nidec, Powerlogic, Sanyo Denki. But they might also be notacible loud because they are not optimized for noise but rather longlivety.

And the rest isn't shit either. They are also good...

The manufacturer's site said "ball type", although it certainly wouldn't be the first time that the specs were wrong on a fan.

Something is wrong on their site or you read something wrong. Yate Loon's D80SH-12 has it right there in the label.
If it was a ball or 2 ball bearing fan it would be a D80BH-12

That's not what i'm doing, what i'm doing is separating the good fans from the 'OKish' fans.

That's good to know. so far most of these fans are somewhat quiet.

I just found out that the Delta fan i have blows the most air, more than the ADDA fan. The Delta fan is also a lot quieter than the ADDA fan.
