Antec, Inc., the global leader in high-performance computer components, announces the TrueQuiet Pro 120 enclosure fan. The TrueQuiet Pro 120 combines a completely redesigned fan blade with special Quiet Computing features to deliver high airflow with minimal noise.

Revolutionary Fan Blade -- The fan blade of the TrueQuiet Pro 120 is a departure from traditional axial fan blade designs; it is attached to the frame, forming a type of cylindrical turbine. This design provides the fan with a greater cooling surface area, while eliminating turbulence associated with traditional fan blades that "chop" the air by the frame.

Bearings? The hub reminds me of those oil seeping Slipstream fans. Wouldn't trust those in my case, and certainly wouldn't pay $20 for them.

Yeah, no specs for bearing technology or decibel rating! What kind of a "revolutionary" product press release is this? It looks nice, but that's about all you can decipher from the marketing jargon.

that center part just allow more air though but at what cost ?.. I'll stick with the Cougers and if your not to fussy check out the red Rosewill fans that come with a fan guard and fan controller for about $8 as any 1/2 decent 120mm+ fan at 1200RPM should be pretty dam silent.

And even the most silent ones are not silent if they are above 14-15RPM due to air flow noise.

provides superior airflow with only 46cfm @ $20 each.

That dont sit well at that cost. rather get the Cougar Vortex for about the same price, but perform way better.
