Cons Colors could be changed. Anti-vibration accessories could be longer or somehow designed to be easier to install
Summary Great fans especially with the sale price. Very quiet and comes with all the adapters and pointing accessories you need. As mentioned in the cons, the color could be different and appeal to a wider audience. But more important than that is the anti-vibration accessories could be longer so that it is not so much of a pain to install in tight places where its almost impossible to grip the ends (once they are through the whole)and pull them through and in the correct seated position.
Cons The rubber mounting grommets could be a stronger.
Summary Hey All!
I just purchased 2 of these Noctau 120mm fans to replace 3 of my old Sunon fans which were starting to get very loud. I must say that the Noctua fans are so quiet I had to double check to make sure they were on. My old Sunon fans ran at 1500rpm and never came close to the amount of air the Noctua fans produce! And at half the rpm. I know for all the gamers with clear sided case's the color of the Noctua's may not appeal to them. But for me its all about performance. And the best thing is they were shipped super fast! 1 day!
Pros -Quiet -Rubber fixings were not easy to use -No silly LED's
Cons -Pricey -Could have chosen a better color set.
Summary At 10$ a fan id expect some quiet performance. I get it for the most part. The color choice is odd and doesn't really work with my case, or any other case I could think of, but who cares. It performs and doesn't make my case any louder. Id throw this in with any new built that needs fans.
Pros very, very quiet; unexpectedly strong airflow; rubber mounts for extra quietness
Cons rubber mounts awkward to install; requires separate resistor to change fan speed
Summary I've had these fans for a week now and I'm impressed with their performance. I can barely hear them; noise from the central heating is louder than the fans! The Ultra Low Noise "setting" (more on that later) is definitely overkill for most purposes.
Also, despite the low RPM the fans channel quite a bit of air, I'd say similar to a regular 1300RPM fan.
The only cons I can think of include how difficult it was to install the rubber mounts. You'd think that there would be some kind of mechanism on the fans to allow for easier installation but there are only regular mounting holes; as well the separate "Ultra Low Noise setting"-which is really just a 3-pin adapter with a resistor-looks kinda cheap. The negatives are only noticeable because the fans are otherwise very well built.
