Good Airflow, Not As Quiet As I Expected
on May 26, 2011
Overall, I like it, but it's noisier than I expected based on the other reviews. It's got a slight rattle/turbulence that can be annoying, even on the lowest setting. Sounds sort of like there's a single-propeller plane buzzing through the sky, but off in the distance.
Still, set on low, it helps in the afternoons when the sun is coming in through the window and I need a little airflow to keep me awake. The low setting is a nice, gentle breeze that's enough to refresh without whipping papers off my desk.
Had to drop the rating to three stars because I can't take the rattle anymore. It seems to have gotten worse. I just e-mailed Lasko's email@example.com support desk to see if they can recommend a way to fix it without having to return it as defective. I'll update again when I see how their support handles things.
Support was very cool, had me return it to Amazon, who sent me a new one. New one is quieter and hasn't developed the rattle. Raised the review back up to 4 stars.
