Effizio Quiet Fans are designed with silence and optimal airflow in mind. Smaller, domed motor hub, larger, more dramatic fan blade sweep area, no other fans on the market come even close in performance! There might be fans that offer more airflow or lower noise levels, but when it comes to a balance between the two, these fans can't be beat, now with Japanese fluid dynamic bearings for ultra long life and reduced vibration.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good fan!

Pros: Has lasted almost 3 years! It's always quiet and never vibrates my case with its awesome rubber screw/studs. Delivers the right airflow I need.

Cons: None so far ( after almost 3 years!)

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Fairly quiet and moves a lot of air

Cons: Not absolutely silent

Other Thoughts: I could barely feel the air from my old fan. Tried another fan; it moved no air at all. After more research I bought this and an 80mm fan. Both are very quiet and move a whole lot of air. Dropped my internal case temperatures a few degrees.

1 out of 5 eggsBearings are bad after 1 year

Pros: Quiet, at first.

Cons: Didn't last very long before the bearings went bad

Other Thoughts: After about 1 year the bearings started making an annoying clicking/grinding sound, similar to what a ball bearing sound like when it goes bad. And that shouldn't happen because 1) This is listed as a fluid bearing fan not ball bearing, so why would it sound like the latter? and 2) Fluid bearing fans should last anywhere from 100K-300K hours which is 10-30 years of 24/7 use, and I got maybe 10K hours before both of mine went bad. So is this truly a fluid bearing fan? I guess the only way to know would be to crack one open and take a look, which I haven't done because I'm waiting on an email back from the company to see if they will replace them under warranty or not. I wasn't able to get a straight answer when I called them, they said I had to send an email inquiry (which is odd) and I'm still waiting for a reply.

The bearing failure seems to be a common issue with these fans since I see many other reviewers that mention the same thing. And granted there are also a lot of positive reviews, but I think too many people leave positive feedback prematurely before using the product for an extended period of time and they don't update the review if they later have problems. If you look at the reviews from people who have owned them for a reasonable period of time they are almost 100% negative.

BOTTOM LINE: STAY AWAY FROM THIS FAN IF YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO REPLACE THEM IN 1 YEAR!!

1 out of 5 eggsDEAD

Pros: It moved air.

Cons: Well after 1 1/2 years of easy use it decided to let a ball bearing go and die. The whole time I had it it was never really "silent" and given the price that I paid ($11.99) for it I am disappointed and since its out of the year replacement warrant I have a useless fan from a company I gave a chance and now regret. I've had fans for over 4 years that still work but this gave it up after on 1 1/2 years. I've learned my lesson and will stick to companies I have bought from that have good quality/durable products.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Good Price, Newegg Rocks

Cons: Bought several of these fans for my Antec P180 case. I was wanting more silence than performance. The fans are too loud for my taste. Its not a woosh or whine sound, but more of a chatter of something being unbalanced. Like a baseball card in a bike's wheel. Its very annoying. I will be replacing these with another vendor.

5 out of 5 eggsGood case fan

Pros: Flows good amount of air and keeps components cool, quiet.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Have used these fans for many years now with no issues. Still running after 2+ years and for how quiet it is, it does flow good amount of air.
