Excerpt: We moved to Texas in our third year of retirement after searching the earth for a quiet, quaint little city. Having established himself as a carver in NY and in OK my husband and I decided to make a list of our imminent needs for our retirement hobbies. He is a carver of pipestone, steatite etc. of Peace Pipes and buttons. Once the studio was built, he went about setting up our work stations.
Truly quiet. This product's namesake does not lie.

Summary: I seriously cannot even hear this thing at the lowest setting. Used this to replace the loud as hell stock fan in my Cooler Master Elite 130 mini-ITX case and it made all the difference. I pretty much only hear PSU and CPU fans now. Really impressed with just how quiet this fan is. Love the rubber grommet/screw type things for installation. Will be purchasing more TrueQuiet fans for future builds for sure.

Summary: These fans worked well for me. They are very quite. Overall, they were an easy install, with the most time spent taking the old fans out so that I could install these! Again, I bought these because they were advertised as quite...they are! Plus, they were a priced at a great point!
Summary: These fans are exactly what I needed for a compact Silverstone NAS that uses three 120mm case fans (two for the HDD array, one for rear case exhaust). Though the stock Silverstone fans were not loud, I could hear them across a moderate sized, quiet room as a faint "woosh" sound. With the Antec fans in place at the high setting of 1000 rpm, I could still barely hear them across the silent room but I had to strain to do so.
Summary: Ah man call me crazy, I love a fan. Here's the thing, the fact that Antec went the extra hurricane to provide for my sensitive ears is touching. Starting with a blade of good design, they then added a high and low switch, or maybe it's actually Hi an' Lo. But did they stop there? No sir, they didn't! The corners are a squishy silicone for mounting and do you suppose that's when they stopped? Not on your life Buster! Instead of screws you get more silicone to mount it.
Summary: This is a truly absolutely silent fan. On low speed it can not be heard. On high speed it can not be heard when listening at any reasonable distance. Your ear needs to be just inches from the fan to be heard. As for the CFM it may not suit the needs of some but for my purposes it perfect. The fan appears to be well built and the two speed option is a nice touch. If the CFM suits your needs I fail to see how anything could be better.
Summary: This was not as quiet as I hoped, but more so than the one I replaced (that came with the case). This one is two speed instead of the 3 speed that came with the case but is doing quite well at removing hot air from the inside of the case.
Summary: Having bought an Antec: Three Hundred Two computer case, and wanting to fill the case's cooling capacity. These fans were of the size that fit the case's design, so they are ideal. The manual for the case recommend the installation of more fans other than the default ones as 'optional'. However as it is a "gaming" case, the cooler the better for the cpu and components.
Summary: Just replaced this yesterday after my old 120mm case exhaust fan started making its terrible death rattles. The installation of this fan is easy and tool-less if you can believe it. Obviously, you're going to need a screw driver to remove your existing fan (most likely) but this unit is held into place by rubber grommets that have a long pull which you thread through the case & fan then pull through.
