"not bad"
Almost as quiet as my rena. I have been pleasantly surprised with its noise level. X3 runs in my son's room and he has no problem sleeping with it.

Would buy again.

"Inexpensive Quiet Air Pump"
I got the X5 on my 55 gal tank in my bedroom (where I sleep). :) It's very quiet - just as quiet as my Rena. I do have it setting on carpet, and make sure it's not touching the aquarium stand or the wall at all. (this does make a difference in the vibration noise). The only thing I don't lie about it is I had to jerry-rig a closure for the second outlet because they have no valve to shut off the second outlet - and I only need a single outlet, but wante the power of the X5.

Bottom Line: It's not a Rena, but it's much cheaper, and very quiet, and it circulates air - what more do u need from an air pump? :)

"Noisy"
This can be a noisy pump but if placed on something to absorb the vibrations it is relatively quiet to run. I have on that has worked over 10 years.

"extremely noisey!"
This is the loudest air pump I've ever heard in 17 years of keeping fish. It makes my Elite sound quiet. Possible got a defected pump. Pumps a lot of air. Very powerful.
