The ones that I have seen like that in the past sometimes make a whop whop whop noise as it spins.

We use the Aerogen 6 with six blades that are very silent.

I've used one for 15 years, and it is quieter and more powerful than the southwest windpower units. If I were buying another unit, I would probably go with the KISS, which has less maintenance and less SSB noise.

they should be ashamed of having made the claim that it generates over 200 amp hours per day.

not on a nice day, certainly.
