Product Description

Color: Passion

Unlike a typical fan, this stylish personal fan features Vornado-exclusive Vortex technology, which powerfully circulates the air. Its deep-pitched blade, ducted airflow, and focusing AirTensity grill projects a beam of air up to 20 feet, creating the perfect whisper-quiet breeze and eliminating hot and cold spots. Choose from 2 speed settings and the unit oscillates and flips to direct air where it's needed most. When not in use, it can fold down to conceal the fan, which not only helps keep the fan free of dust, but also adds to the unit's overall modern look. Other highlights include a high-gloss finish, a powerful electric motor, and lightweight construction at just 1.7 pounds. Great for a dorm room, office, cubical, or hotel room, the Flippi V6 carries a 3-year limited warranty. Model is made for 120 volts only.

I figured I'd write a review, because I feel this little fan has gotten some undue bad press.

For what it is, it is a very good little fan. It's very small, and sleek looking. Within 15 minutes of bringing it into my office cubicle, someone commented on how "cool" it looked.

Beyond the aesthetics of the fan, it produces a nice breeze on the low setting, which is virtually silent. Nothing that powerful, but you can definitely feel the breeze up to five feet away or so. The high setting seems to about double or triple the air moved, but it does produce a slight motor noise. Nothing too loud. At five feet away or so, it's just a low hum. Anything beyond that, and you can't really hear it.

For me, it is exactly what I was looking for. A quiet fan that lowers the temperature by a couple degrees and moves air around.

Pros:
- Virtually silent on the lowest setting
- Perfect for an office environment
- Looks "cool"
- Rotates on its base, so I don't have to pick it up to point it in a different direction.

Cons:
- High setting is arguably loud (it's acceptable in my environment)
- It's not a power house fan (if you just had a two hour work out session, this fan isn't going to cool you down much)
- It takes two hands to change between off/high/low settings, since it swivels on its base, and a dial controls speeds (one hand to hold it from swiveling, and another to turn the dial)

Color Name: Passion
I purchased this fan despite the high price because I have been impressed by larger my larger Vornado fans. This fan does not come close to maintaining the level of quality of Vornado's larger line of fans.

The fan is powered by electrical outlet (not batteries), has both low and high settings, swivels both vertically and horizontally, and swivels completely downwards for storage when not in use.

The key issues I have are-

Air output:
The air really dribbles out of the fan. I had a coworker place his hand in front of the fan and ask if it was turned on. Even when switched to High, it makes a lot more noise but doesn't seem to push more air. The max range that you can actually feel the air moving is about 24 inches.

Noise:
The fan makes quite a bit of noise, definitely not whisper quiet. Its actually louder than fans 5 times its size. I avoid using the high setting because its too loud for an office environment, but at the same time the low setting doesn't provide enough air.

Design:
The fan looks cool and is easy to swivel both sideways and vertically. Unfortunately, the fan does have a few design issues that just don't make much sense. The off/high/low switch is located at the very base of the fan. This combined with the fact that it takes significant pressure to flip the switch means you have to use one hand to hold down the fan while you flip the switch with the other hand. This becomes annoying when you have to quickly flip it off so you can hear what someone is saying to you.

Additionally, in order to reach the low setting you have to flip past the very loud high setting, making it impossible to discretely turn off or on the fan.

This little fan delivers! I do nails & bought this because of its ability to direct air downward to dry nails. After trying it out at home I decided to keep it here. It is quiet and I found I could raise the thermostat several degrees while I am relaxing in the evening with the fan moving the air near me. There is no "gust" like from other fans, just a gentle, yet surprisingly effective breeze.

I didn't realize how tiny this fan is! It's quite cute and surprisingly pushes a lot of air for it size. The noise level is acceptable and comparable to other vornado products (it's not super-super quite, but it's not loud). Note that this doesn't oscillate as does the larger models.

I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because through all my research I was mislead that this oscillated (which is probably my faulty expectations) and that the fan wasn't larger (which wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the needs of my purchase). Otherwise this fan is definitely a cool little fan that pushes a surprising amount of air for it's size. (though, don't expect a tornado).

This is a great little fan. Perfect size to sit on the end table. Pefect for women having hot flashes as you can aim it right at your face to cool you off quickly. Even on high it's quiet. Exactly what I was looking for.

I bought this based on another reviewer who said they use it on a bedroom nightstand. We have the same situation, one partner who likes minimal A/C and the other who is DYING and can't sleep. Unforunately, this fan has too much inconsistent motor noise. So, unless you're a quick and deep sleeper, you're going to constantly wake up from the varying motor noise (not the fan itself, but the motor). It would be great if it's constant, but it isn't. The whirring pitch changes frequently, and you WILL notice it.

Incidentally, this was purchased AFTER going through 3 of the Vornado's with the cloth blades. Those are actually much quieter, and the similar motor issue is much less noticeable. The problem with those is, over time, the fan housing rattles! I'm back to using the 3rd of 3, since it rattles the least and at a specific angle it doesn't happen. Made in China, so what do you expect? What's actually needed as a bedroom nightstand solution is the perfect quiet of a PC-cooling type fan in a table-top version, but I haven't been able to find anything like this. YET.

This fan works great in an office however (which is where it got moved to).

It's not a blasting fan. It's subtle. At 5' away, on either setting, it cools with a gentle breeze. It's enough to make papers move at that distance.

The major negative that all users will experience about this fan is the switch. It's not a one-hand operation. You HAVE to hold the housing while sliding the switch on the bottom, otherwise the whole fan will move with it.
