Rated 4 out of 5 by Dano Great fan but awkward design.
These fans are very quiet, even on full settings, and still maintain a reasonable air flow, however the design of the mountings is awkward, you're going to have a very hard time mounting a dust filter to it, and considering the price you probably want to prolong its life as much as possible by keeping dust away. I managed to fit some filters using the rubber mounts and some small screws. The plastics are solid, and good quality, however its worth noting the that rubber mounts that are included will eventually turn white-ish grey, so it's worth keeping that in mind if you're someone who likes a good looking build, its nothing major, but it can be noticeable.
In conclusion, well built, but awkward mounting options may cause you issues, and keep in mind that the biggest reason they're quiet is because they generally don't move as much air, so if you have a big case, or a hot system, these might not provide the static pressure needed, however, they really are barely audible.
