I wasn't sure about this fan at first, but it was dirt cheap so I figured I'd give it a shot.

I wasn't sure about this fan at first, but it was dirt cheap so I figured I'd give it a shot. I've been very pleased thus far; my Wii used to be quite hot to the touch in WiiConnect24 mode, and now it's no warmer than I'd expect an electronic device in standby mode to be.
The fan runs reasonably quiet; it's certainly audible but I've heard worse. I haven't had a chance to test that the USB passthrough port works since there currently aren't any USB peripherals available for the Wii, but it's nice that they thought ahead and included it anyway.

My one gripe is the red LED, which is constantly on and is quite bright. It's not a deal-breaker, just an annoyance.

The Wii is still too new to really know whether temperature is a stability or reliability concern, but I don't aim to be the first victim of Wii overheating, especially when a solution exists for a measly two bucks. I'd recommend this to any Wii owner, especially one who lives in the middle of the desert like I do.

Edit: Roughly three weeks after receiving it, the fan died without warning. I guess you get what you pay for; can't say I should have expected different given the price. Buyer beware!

Fan was noisy and bulky. It got the job done but was too noisy to bother using. When in standby it would not turn off.

This USB cooling fan is O.K. It fits the Wii great and can run while the Wii is in standby mode. It seems to do an alright job of keeping the unit cool. However the fan is some-what loud and can clearly be heard even when I'm watching T.V. I would recommend only if you don't care about the constant fan sound (and red LED light).

Fan came in on time. It worked ok for a few days then it stopped working. It would have been fine had it been more reliable.

My Wii would always shut down. We had a giant stupid fan pointed at it to get it to work. This works great, never have to turn it on or off since it runs off the wii power and it is quite and compact, fits right in the back. Never shuts down. Love it.

Cools my wii down as I play games for a long time. It helps the wii maintain the same speed and not slow down between switching games.

The air intake fan in my Wii recently gave out (I am assuming from having recently been set on an enclosed shelf, on its side, and using it for Netflix). with that, the Wii would overheat after about an hour and shut itself off. Rather than spend the big $$ to get it fixed, I decided to see if there were any solutions. Lo and behold, I came across the Wii Mini Power Cooling Fan - and for $3.99, I figured I have nothing to really lose.

It plugs into the back of the Wii using one of the two USB ports, and conviently has its own USB port, so you still have access. Power up the Wii, turn the fan switch "on"...and nothing. My heart sank. Turned it off, turned it back on, and it started right away. Guess it just wanted to give me a little scare.

It ran for approximately 2 hours straight last night, and the Wii never got any warmer than it did when we had the fan. So, I am pleased.

the question is, how long will it last? At $3.99, I don't expect this to be a long-term fix. But, for the time being, I am happy.

Edit 9/12: okay, I didn't expect it to be a long term fix....but only 3 weeks?? It has completely stopped working. Lesson learner...I have ordered a higher quality fan.

Edit 9/28: The darn thing started working again. We used something to "nudge" the fan blades and it started spinning again. Have had to do that a couple times since the 12th, but all in all, again- for the price, I guess it's hard to complain too loudly. I have the "higher power" fan in storage for the inevitable day when this one really does bite the dust.
