Pros: Good RMA system... have been using it a lot lately....
Cons: I am currently on my 4th RMA.
My first one made a bit of noise but hardly noticeable. but i wasnt experienced enough at the time to realize it wasnt normal. So i RMA it when i realize it was making the tick of death.
The next one came and plugged it in. it made an even worse ticking/clunking noise. RMA again.
Third drive one worked fine for a month. It started ticking. RMA yet again....
4th one came. Plugged that one in and what do you know... loud grinding noises.
I am currently waiting for a FIFTH one to arrive. Not had a single one that didn't sound like it was going to die any minute. I am at the point where I expect every single drive that is sent to me is going to just be sent back. Luckily i have a second hard drive of a different brand to keep me going while i wait... If the fifth one doesn't work as intended. I will never be buying a WD drive again. Only reason I even waited this long is because they have a great RMA system. But FOUR RMAs done and it hasn't even been half a year.
When u pay $100 for a 1TB hard drive. This is unacceptable.
Other Thoughts: Frustrating. One or two RMAs is still not good but I can accept that. but four..... ridiculous. and I am not even sure its done yet. I have yet to receive the fifth drive to see if its going to work properly.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: They move a lot of air.
Cons: Loud. Unbalanced. If you plug it in and hold it in your hand you can feel a bad vibration for this size of fan.For me it doesn't move enough air to be worth the horrible noise they make. I bought 3 and all did the exact same thing. Made my computer sound like it was going to take off flying.
On top of the noises and vibrations. I put all 3 beside each other, exact same fans bought at the exact same time. They had different shades of blue LEDs which were very noticeable. I can see why they went on sale. Horrible fans.
Other Thoughts: To their credit, they did move a lot of air for the whole 5 mins they were in my computer. Unless you plan to crank up the speakers very loud the whole time your computer is on I highly recommend staying away from these fans.
Would be perfect cooling solution for someone who can get past the many defects. Though I don't know how long they would last with the vibrations they make.

Pros: Silent. doesn't move as much air as others do but it does look great and I don't even notice a sound difference with it in the case.
Cons: None. Great quality for the price. Havn't had for long but for the price you cant really go wrong with it,READ FULL REVIEW
