I bought those for my Dad for chrismas many years back. He has AMAZINGLY f-ed up vision problems- huge thick glasses, graves disease (makes you see cross eyed), constant fogging, etc... I figured with all the crap seeing-problems he puts up with on the slopes, he deserved and needed the "Cadallac of Googles"- the smith ones you are talking about- with the fan... this was when they were new technology and really "avant guard" as well- and wicked expensive.
Anyways, they didn't really help my dad, he didn't like them, they didn't do the trick, and never used them other than an expensive way to hold on his hat, or just to block snow guns on the lift. Positives: The fan was a little fun to play with, and makes a neat "whirring" noise to show off to your friends. "Hey- my goggles have a fan in them- how cool is that"
Bottom line, I'm SOL and out of lot of $$ because he hated them.
