Aura Ventilator?

Hello,
I'm replacing a roof on a 1600 SF ranch style house that currently has 2 old turbine vents. I've been researching the options to see what else is available and the aura vents look interesting. They claim to have the same free air as a comparable turbine,but no moving parts. Only reservation about them is that i cannot find much information (reviews, etc.) about them except for whatever is provided by the manufacturer.

Does anyone have any experience with these?

Thanks alot
Marshall

If you are replacing the roofing, you would be alot better off, removing the turbines, patching over the holes (across 3 joists) and installing a ridge vent. You will get alot more hot air evacuation without the protrusion and possible leak of the proposed vent.
