Saw a set of Minouras at Performance this winter--wasn't impressed by the appearance and they were talked down by the sales type. I don't know how representative that model may be. Ordered some Kreitler Poly-lytes in the end--nice rollers; a bit more resistance than the large drums.
I have the standard Kreitlers with a fan unit. These are nobill

one's idea of an extraordinary value play -- the whole deal is rather pricey. It's good stuff, no question, but I would have a hard time convincing you that they're worth twice what some other rollers go for. So, I won't.
In any case, in retrospect, I kind of wish that I had bought the Kreitler Dyno-Myte's without a fan. I believe that you can adjust resistance within the necessary range just by shifting without having to deal with the noise, etc. of an added unit. I needed more resistance than the standard-sized rollers provided, but I think that the smaller rollers really may have been the ticket instead of the fan. The fan is smooth, but it's noisy and ain't worth much as a fan.

I have the Tacx Sporttrack Roller-foldable TA1050 from LaBicicletta cost 99 bucks. Has the small drums which provides plenty of resistance with just your gears.
Good Deal!
