5 out of 5 eggsSilent cooling

Pros: Absolutely silent. Using it in a Gateway desktop that has been repurposed as an HTPC - have it installed on the side of the case to provide a little extra cooling to the TV tuner, sound, and video cards. Definitely moves plenty of air for this application.

Cons: It's great as a secondary fan, but may not be a suitable replacement for a "brand name" tower's main fan. Many use a single, high-flow 80mm fan to cool the entire chassis - while this provides additional airflow, it's not enough for a main fan.

2 out of 5 eggsQuiet...because of pathetic airflow.

Pros: Is quiet.

Cons: I bought this as a replacement fan for a water cooling system I have. There is almost no airflow coming out of this thing. Not even enough to blow off a single square of toilet paper! I even double checked to make sure I didn't have it in backwards!

Definitely not worth the nine bucks, or nine cents for that matter.

2 out of 5 eggsloud...

Pros: Looks neat
Has silicone mounts

Cons: Airflow is lower than I expected
Much, much louder than expected. Not sure if mine's a lemon or it's been degrading over time, but currently it's much louder than all the other fans in my pc *combined*.

Honestly I'm probably better off just throwing this under the couch to collect dust. I plan to replace this very soon, not sure how I put up with it for so long.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure if quiet fans even exist anymore, or if I'm just swimming in a world of lies and false promises.

1 out of 5 eggsMuch less than expected

Pros: The 4 plastic mounting tabs that I put on another fan.

Cons: Just got it, just put it in and just took it OUT! Silent? Hardly. I purchased this to replace an Antec 80mmm that was going bad. This fan is much louder! $10 down the drain.

5 out of 5 eggsReviewers Delivered

Pros: -Made out of a high quality non-vibration plastic (unlike standard fans) that is also sturdier.
-Not inaudible, but definitely in the highest tier of extremely quiet fans.
-Included rubber mounting points. I did not need these as my case had a snap-in fan holder included, but I imagine they would make installation screwdriver-free.
-Sleeved cable is done with proper sleeving that doesn't slide around when you move the cable.

Cons: It's not even an expensive fan! What could I possibly put here?

Other Thoughts: Moves a good bit of air for an 80mm fan as well. I like the air pressure 80mm fans generate, it certainly feels like more air is moving through it than my larger 200mm case fan.

5 out of 5 eggsNice quiet fan

Pros: I had a noisy stock fan on the front of the desktop case. Now it is so much quieter with this one. It is also inexpensive. I have other similar quiet fans that sold for twice the price.

Cons: None I can see thus far.
