Summary I've been running four of these fans for two and half years. After roughly two years, one of them started to rattle from time to time but for the price, these are a great deal.
In terms of noise, I found these to be reasonable for how cool my computer is now. Now that I have the fans in, there is no noticeable temperature change between the room and the inside of the case. I'd definitely recommend these for anyone looking for new 120mm fans.
Pros cheap (when on sale), sleeved, moves adequate amount of air, retail packaging includes a 3-pin to 4-pin molex adaptor and screws
Cons none yet
Summary Over the span of 20 plus months, I purchased almost 2 dozen of these for several personal builds. Only 1 seems to be on the brink of failing (creating a very mild rattling/humming sound). The fan in question is right above the cpu and acting as a top exhaust fan. This fan has been running non-stop 24/7 since June 2011. Maybe it's the combination of heated air radiated by the CPU cooler and the horizontal mounting position that could be causing the fan to fail prematurely. Regardless, the price and performance is still more than adequate and I usually get these fans wheneve they go on sale for about half of retail.
(Unfortunately they no longer go on sale too often and its the cougar turbines that a usually bundled)
They come in an ordinary blue cardboard box with not much fancy printing or specs written on them. I prefer this kind of packaging over the plastic packs since these seem more readily recyclable.
Overall they are nice fans. Nothing fancy but no unreasonable CFM claims as well. They do an adequate job and will still be my fan of choice for cheap builds.
Pros Using as intake on Antec Gaming Series One case. Keeps it cool while gaming, without making much noise. Red colour adds a unique splash to the front of the case.
Summary Great case fan for $4. At that price this fan can't be beat. I wasn't sure about the red colour as my case was primarily black, but it actually looks pretty nice when installed. This was bought to provide intake on my Antec One Gaming series case, and it is doing a great job. Noise is about on par with the Antec stock fans, which is wonderful. If you need an extra fan and don't want to spend the dough, don't hesitate to buy it.
Pros Moves a lot of air Looks awesome Great price when on sale
Cons Out of the half dozen I bought, one occasionally makes an ever so slight squeal noise.
Summary Got a hand full of these on sale a while back. They all work great, moving a lot of air, except one very occasionally makes an ever so slight squeal noise. Sounds like the bearing. I just bang the top of my case where the fan is and it goes away. I guess that can happen to any fan, so it's not that big a deal.
I got these on sale for $4.00, so I'm not too picky.
Summary - Good budget case fans if you need more. I would recommend them if you just want to get the job done, nothing more. I wouldn't put these in a high-end gaming rig, just because these are so boring to look at.........
