These use to look exactly like the Kato HM5 motors.  Not sure why they changed the style. (my ebay purchase history links to the quoted motors now if I were to re-buy the HM5 looking ones)

Anyhow, I purchased 40 of the original style assuming they would "disapear" from availability at some point. 

I used them in my most egregious Athearn RTR's (couple SD50 coffee grinders and a couple SD40T-2 clickers) and they all are whisper quiet with the Kato knock offs. I use them along with A-Line hex flywheels (exact same as Athearns).

If the quoted ones are as smooth and quiet as the previous style, these motors are very nice.
