Great, unique fan. Loses a star for things that should go along with a $400+ appliance
on July 22, 2013
I've had the Dyson pedestal fan for about 5 days now.
 Unique design -- no reluctance to keep it out in the open.
 Relatively quiet. On maximum, it definitely makes a bit of a "roar", but not really noticeable except in a completely quiet room (with the TV or music or conversation going, it's not a problem).
 Moves a good amount of air around the room.
 Because it sucks air in from the base, where the air is theoretically cooler, it's a great way to distribute all that cold AC that's hovering above the floor.
 You'd never know the silver plastic isn't real matte aluminum -- until you touch it. For this kind of price, I think there should be some real aluminum on it.
 It's a little wobbly when you move it. It's well made....but, again, for the price, I'd expect it to be just a bit more rock-solid.
 The remote should really be RF at this price. Alternatively, the IR receiver should be mounted toward the top of the fan, as opposed to 1" from the ground, where's it's not always easy to aim.
Anyway, love the fan. And I'm not complaining about it's price -- I purchased it with my eyes open, knowing full-well Dyson (like Apple) charges a significant premium for awesome, unique design. But unlike Apple products, which generally feel as premium as they look, Dyson comes up just a little bit short. A little disappointing, but not so much to make me regret the purchase.
