    They only lose on price/performance in the short term. I'm aware of no other fan boasting a 6 year warranty and in my experience it is extremely rare for a high performance fan to last that long. Longest I've ever had another high performance fan last before starting to die is about 3 years.

    Now maybe I've just been unlucky, but that 6 year warranty is worth a pretty big price premium to me. I bought my SP120s half as an experiment to see if they can last 5+ years.

    Artic Cooling fans have a 6y warranty, and most ball bearing fans will run many years if treated right and looked after.

    They will probably greatly increase sales by offering black fans. Next of course is to offer them in red, blue, green, yellow, etc. so they can supply every wish in the world. ;)
