Would that review happen to be at Silent PC Review? If so, they always measure fan speeds low. If you check out the link in the next paragraph, you will see that I compared the flowrates, and it is more than 58 cfm, easily. The Silenx fan pushed much more air than the Streamliner, which is rated at 54.7 cfm I believe. I also don't buy SPCR's 26 dBA rating, but in listening to their sound byte it seems their fan wasn't balanced.

As far as the brightness goes, just because it isn't as bright doesn't mean it isn't bright. Check out these photos of it:

It's still plenty bright, but you can notice a difference if you sit it next to another fan.
