    Pros: I have about 50 of these things in the field and not one of them has failed yet.
    Cons: None.
    I tried some other more exciting brands for color or silent insulators, but they kept failing. I have come back and replaced them with the Vantecs. They just work.

    Pros: Quiet, reasonable air-flow - I think an all-around good compromise of the two for either an extra case exhaust fan, or extra airflow across disks or vid card - though at 92mm, probably not the best for disks (120mm generally work much better)
    Cons: Depending on cable routing, cord is a little short (about 12" or so)

    Pros: It's a fan. A cheap fan at that. But it is doing the job and quietly.
    Cons: How can I have a "con" about a working ten dollar fan?
    It's a fan. A cheap fan at that. But it is doing the job and quietly. How can I have a "con" about a working ten dollar fan? The worst, hardest issue dealing with replacing fans is sizing them. 92mm, is that insane or what? I did find fan sizing information somewhere, to correctly get this 92mm fan.

    Cheap runs quiet - used it to replace defective thermaltake CPU fan. Processor is running cooler with this fan and quiet as can be.

    Pros: It's silent and it works as advertised.
    Cons: Don't ask me.
    It's silent and it works as advertised. Don't ask me. Good, cheap investment that helps keep a good airflow coming thru my computer. I'm using it on my XPS 630i as a rear exhaust fan and I've noticed a 2-3 degrees difference on my GPUs and 3-4 degrees on my CPU temps.

    Pros: I bought two of these to replace a much louder Antec fan I bought about a week ago. That thing sounded like a jet engine. These are the quietest thing in my tower.

    Pros: I had one of these going strong for two years in my HTPC. Decided to pair it with another.
    Cons: None.
    I had one of these going strong for two years in my HTPC. Decided to pair it with another. None. Any fan will make noise if running full speed, but if you hook them up to a fan controller you can adjust that to where you still get air flow but little to no noise a few feet away.

    Pros: Quiet, with decent airflow. Been running it for about four years straight and it's as good as the day I bought it.
    Cons: It's generally a bit pricey.

    moves air well emits a high pitch noise that is extremely annoying. (this is when i hooked it up to a 4 pin adapter) I ended up disconnecting this fan because of how loud it was.

    Pros: Speed detection, which was my biggest draw towards this besides the brand name.
    Cons: I've always been happy with Vantec, but this fan arrived DOA, unfortunately.
    Speed detection, which was my biggest draw towards this besides the brand name. I've always been happy with Vantec, but this fan arrived DOA, unfortunately. Not worth the fees to send back for a replacement, so I'll probably just end up getting a new one or something else the next time I have a large order coming up.

    Pros: Price, fairly quiet, decent airflow
    Cons: Arrow that designates air flow direction is hard to find, could have made it more apparent (ie. a contrasting color).

    Pros: Quiet, fits my Thermalright ultra-90, speed detection
    Cons: Although it fits my thermalright ultra 90, it doesnt do a good job of cooling it. I still idle at 42-43C, just under the stock cooler. Description said 1750 rpm, but I have yet to see it go over 1,000, even on a stress test

    Pros: I needed a fan with a three-pin connector so I could plug it straight in to my motherboard. This fan did the trick. So far, it works great and it's relatively quiet.
    Cons: Just speculation, but it seems like my old fan might have pushed out more air. Never-the-less, this fan works great.

    Pros: Learned a lesson never to stray from Zalman.
    Cons: I should have waited for Zalman 92mm fans to come back in stock. For a quiet PC, these are terrible. Under default conditions they are simply too loud, with the RPMs reduced the fan (not air moving) makes an obnoxious sound.
    Zalman 80mm fans were cheaper and quieter.

    Pros: Quieter than an average fan
    Cons: Spins at 1850rpm on my case and isn't really quiet.
    Quieter than an average fan Spins at 1850rpm on my case and isn't really quiet. The loudest component in my bedroom computer was the Samsung SP2504C hard disk which is supposed to be one of the quietest drives; that's until this fan was installed. I had to cut the voltage to 5v to make it spin at lower speed, but my old fan at reduced voltage was just as quiet and was pushing more air.

    Pros: Using this as an Intake for my P180. It pushes enough air, it also dropped my mobo Temperature my 4C.
    Cons: Says 1600 RPMs, mine defaulted to 1800...making it too loud as a front intake for my P180.
    Currently running it at 1200rpms (used Q-Fan from my ASUS mobo Utils) and it's pretty silent...but does go up a few 100rpms when gaming, but that's expected.

    Pros: Much quieter than the fan it's replacing pushing air INTO my HTPC from the front, left side.
    Cons: Pushes less air than the noisier fan it's replacing.
    Much quieter than the fan it's replacing pushing air INTO my HTPC from the front, left side. Pushes less air than the noisier fan it's replacing. Yes, so the trade in is less noise but less air pressure. Don't get me wrong. It's no lightweight when it comes to the CFM it moves, but be aware.

    Pros: I bought the 60 and 80mm version years ago, still ticking today and sighty audioable. Got tired of having stero and dvd player with each move, and cool master makes some nice tower perfect for multi media concepts.
    Cons: would not suggest these in extreme gaming rig. Just get a pair of head phones to cover up the loud sound from cpu (being highy cool, overclocked, and rocking away in rpg or fps)

But if you do your homework can keep it down.

    Pros: unusual blade design allows high airflow at lower rotation speeds, means less vibration and noise. keeps my HTPC temps acceptably low, and I don't hear it unless the case is open and I'm within a few feet.
    Cons: expensive. you could have two or three regular fans for the price of one of these.

    Pros: This is a nice fan. If you are replacing a worn out 80mm and your case can take a 92mm fan, go for this one. Not much can beat 28cfm @ 20 dbA specs and come with a "lifetime warranty"
    Cons: Its not cheap. Only comes with speed detection - this is not variable speed.

    Bought this as a quiet replacement for my current thermaltake, but this fan turned out rather loud, it is certainly not 20db. Not a bad fan, just not as quiet as claimed.

    I've been living with a heatsink fan that is just too loud for the temperatures my Intel 3.0c (Northwood) needs. My old fan sounded like an airplane, and it was touchy to voltage reductions. The old fan would slowly loose rpm's or gain rpm's with any fan controller I used.
    I decided it was time for a new fan for my Thermalright SP-94, and bought this Vantec Stealth 92mm over the Panaflo, mainly because I've heard quality control issues about the Panaflo fans lately. I immediatly mounted this Vantec fan to my SP-94 and connected it to my fan controller. To my suprise, I didn't need the fan controller! I then plugged it right into my mobo and it runs full speed. At full speed is is barely audible.
    My fan controller is now dedicated to keeping my other case fans and video card fan silent, which it does a great job at (Zalman ZM-MFC1 is the best fan controller).
    I almost drove myself nuts with my old fan, no worries anymore.

    The stock 92mm went out in my case, (was a cheap one that came with it, made too much noise, then it ground out a bearing.) So i got one of these to replace it, its cool, quiet, reliable, and has no vibration. You can't even hear it at idle. My next machine will have all stealth fans, if if your case is quiet it may benefit from a stealth fan setup.
