2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: *Looks impressive.
*Airflow is quite good.

Cons: *Rattles at both low and high speeds.

Other Thoughts: Judging by the other reviews, I'm far from alone with this issue.
I installed it in a vertical orientation, fan buzzed loudly when powered on then lowered in volume but continued buzzing when RPM decreased. I'm RMA'ing this.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very quiet at moving air. Reasonably priced. Easy to mount.

Cons: I hear a high pitched whine after installing this fan. Could be the PWM.

Other Thoughts: It's easier to install the rubber mounts than some think. Just get it wet, and Puuulll it through the case. After you have all 4 through the case, index the fan and start with mounts hardest to get to, and puuulllll them through the fan mount holes. The rubber seems to be plenty strong to complete the mount process.

5 out of 5 eggsBest fans you can buy

Pros: Everything, this fan moves more air than a standard ball bearing fan and does that quieter than a standard fan. I use these fans on my liquid cooler radiators and they are phenomenal.

Cons: You can't buy 4 for $10 like a standard fan, but that is expected when dealing with a high quality item such as this.

Other Thoughts: I spent a long time making a decision on which fans to buy for my new rig, and after owning multiple of these fans, I will never buy anything else. My new rig has 7 fans (4 120mm & 3 140mm) and it is more quiet than my old build with 7 120mm fans by a lot. My old PC sounded like a spaceship taking off and my new build with these fans is whisper quiet.

5 out of 5 eggsCool and quiet

Pros: High air flow, very quiet, and sturdy design. This is not your common plastic fan. The rubber pads by the screw holes make for vibration free operation. Very pleased with these fans. They are a little more expensive than some other fans, but well worth it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I wish they came with a bigger variety of LED colors, but one can't be too picky.

5 out of 5 eggsoutstanding air and low noise

Pros: A really nice fan, and good looking.

Very quiet vs other fans that push the same amount of air - almost 70 CFM!
.
At full speed, it is as quiet as one of my other 3 speed 120mm fans set to "low."

Real good design.
I like that it doesn't have LED lighting .. or at least the absence is no problem.

It comes with a (really short) adapter to take it from the 4 pin fan/3 pin fan to big 4 pin molex standard old computer power, so you can hook it up anywhere.
No extra adapter need to be purchased.

Cons: Price - Unless on sale it is pricey.

I wish they made a standard, non PWM, or one with a 2 or 3 way speed switch version, if that were cheaper.

Other Thoughts: The built in fan guard is backwards to what I would expect, or at least what I wanted. That is I expect a fan to blow in, and that places the fan guard on the wrong side ....

This may be "the right side" for other people, or for blowing air "into" a case. however, but as the guard and fan itself is one single piece of plastic, you can't change that.

I used the fan as a replacement to blow air into a drive cage, and places the fan guard on the inside of the cage, it that helps explain better.

fyi - it really helped cool the drives better than the cage's stock fan, and far quieter too!

I was able to use a regular 120mm fan guard, so now both sides have some protection from stray cables.
