Best ventilation fan for seed flats?

vornado fan on seed bed flat

We decided to spend a little extra money on a quality fan for the new seed flats.

The small, cheap fans I've used in the past are loud, weak, and don't seem to last longer than a few years.

The Vornado small air circulator is solid and quiet and nice to look at.

I'm not sure how close your seed-starting setup is to your woodstove, but have you seen the fans that sit on top of the stove and run off the heat? (e.g., an EcoFan?) I wonder if one of those could move enough air for your seed flats.
