Well, you also have to take in account to how they tested that sound...they are probably 20dB full blast at a meter away, but they aren't when the thing is sitting about 1 foot from you, lol. But, yes, they still are quiter than most fans. I think i got a pretty good deal on my fan. It really does seem to be the rated 39.5dB at 106.3CFM.....and i think they must've tested that noise at a distance of about a foot or less, because it's about the same loudness as my Tuniq fan at full blast.
