Two things you have to notice:
1. The Martin's review is base on fans moving air through a radiator so the specification doesn't apply. Without the radiator the GT A-15 rated 58cfm and 28dBA.

2. The noise level is where the microphone at 6 inches distance so the sound level of course will be higher than it is rated. I believed most manufacturers measured their noise level at 1 Meter distance.

With that being said, A-15 will be perhaps a superior on a radiator due to more static pressure, even thought the TY-140 rated around 79cfm at max going through a radiator with low static pressure it possibility won't be moving more than 35cfm and the noise will be higher.

So, if your pc is at a distance from you the A-15 noise level won't be a big factor. My vote for the A-15 if you can get it local.

the 1st meter on the left is an anemometer= wind speed the red meter on the right is the voltage. Im not sure what the gray one is reading

Ah I see. 28 dBA seems like a far more reasonable number - especially considering the hype around it. My computer sits on the floor about a foot away from me under a desk.

As for price, I can get each for $15 at my local tech store.

Thanks for the info +rep

I looked up the model number on that (pretty hard to see what it was) and it seems like that measures the noise level (35-100dBA range)

Just out of curiosity, if I were to get say 4 of those AP-15s, would I be able to use the H100 in a push pull config? Would the rad with the extra fans fit on the top of my HAF 932?
