Honeywell Fresh Breeze Tower Fan withRemote Control
The Honeywell 3-speed digital tower fan with ionizer exudes the feel of a spring breeze throughout your home. The powerful, Turbo Wind generator blades move more air than typical blades. You can turn on the breeze mode to simulate a gentle outdoor wind, or set the fan to shut off on its own in 2-, 4-, or 8-hour intervals. Either way, you can control it from your favorite spot with the convenient remote control, which features three cooling speeds and infrared technology. The tilted head also allows for directional cooling, and the strong motor operates with a quiet performance. Best of all, this fan's ionizer and dust/pollen filter can provide relief from allergies.

Top Customer Reviews
The fan performs all the normal features you'd expect of an oscillating room fan as already mentioned by many others so I'm not going to review those features. Instead, I'm going review one feature that is often overlooked: the temperature control.
The temperature control is the feature that puts this fan above all others. It literally behaves like a thermostat! After turning the fan on, setting the temperature control is very easy. You just press the mode button one time and use the up/down arrow buttons to set a specific temperature (2 degree increments). That's all there is to it. Once set, the fan will run until the room has cooled down to the set temperature, and then it will shut off automatically. When the room temperature raises above the set temperature, the fan will turn itself back on automatically. It does this just like how a thermostat controls an air conditioner!
The temperature control offers incredible flexibility. I don't have to babysit the fan so I don't have to run back and forth to turn it on and off as the temperature fluctuates from daytime to nighttime. I can cool down while using the fan just in my bedroom while leaving the rest of the house as normal so I don't freeze out my children. I can also cool down in my bedroom only at night for sleeping while leaving the room normal during the day. Plus, because the air coming out of the fan feels colder than the room temperature, the feeling of being cooled is instantaneous. It does this better than any other fan I've used! In fact, sometimes the air feels so cold that I have to turn it off to not freeze my own self too much.
So not only does this fan offer all the benefits of an oscillating tower fan, but the temperature mode automatically controls the fan so it runs when the temperature is too high and stops when it's cooled back down again. But the best part is that the air truly feels colder than I have experienced with other fans (even ones with a more powerful air outflow), making this particular fan the best one I have ever used. I cannot explain why the air feels colder on this fan than other fans. I simply know that it does.
UPDATE: I ran across my old review and thought I would update it. I bought two of these fans on June 29, 2011. It is now March 9, 2013 and both fans are still working perfectly! I haven't even had to replace the batteries on the remote controls yet even though I use one quite a bit (I never expected to use the flashlight feature so much, but I use it very often).
I am still very pleased with my fans. I use one every single day, almost all day long; although, it can be too cold at times so I turn it off if I get chilled. I am contemplating buying a couple more fans just to keep on hand since I know these fans won't last forever, and I can't imagine doing without one now. I've bought many different fans over the years and nothing has come close to cooling me down as well as this particular model. This was definitely one of the best buys I've made!
UPDATE 2: It is now April of 2014, and both of my fans are still working perfectly even after 3 years of daily use! I cannot be more pleased with the performance of these fans!
UPDATE 3: It is now January of 2015, making my fans 3.5 years old and I still love them. Both fans continue to work flawlessly even though I turn one on and off frequently every day and even once had a bookcase fall over and knock over the fan so hard that it came apart. I just snapped the pieces back together and it was up and running as if nothing had happened. This model continues to remain the best fan ever!
I also want to note that I edited my review slightly to be careful to not imply that this is an actual air conditioner. My wording has appeared to upset some people so I tried to explain myself more clearly with the edits (e.g., clarifying that the temperature control does the same basic thing as an air conditioner *thermostat* instead of saying it behaves like an air conditioner). Hopefully, this will help convey my meaning more clearly. But make no mistake about it, the air that comes out of this particular fan model does in fact feel COLD, far more any fan I've ever tried. I don't know how it does it. I understand that it is not an actual air conditioner. But considering that the whole reason I bought the fan was to cool me off and the air from this fan actually FEELS like cold air coming from an air conditioner, I'd say it's doing all I hoped for and more. We can mince words on what to call it, but I know what the air feels like no matter what name is used. I actually get cold from it. No other fan has ever done that before. So while I want to make it perfectly clear that this is a fan, not an air conditioner, there is no mistaking that this one remains the best fan I have ever used. The air coming out FEELS COLD, unlike any other fan I've used. That may be why my doctor and the sleep center selected this exact fan model for their professional businesses. I'm very glad I got one (make that two) for myself.
It was easy to put together. The required screws (4) are "thumb screws" meaning they are designed to be put in by hand rather than with a screwdriver. There are clear instructions included in the box. there are easily removable stickers on the various parts showing you where each of the 4 or 5 parts fits together. The floor stand is optional and supposedly makes the fan less sturdy (also clearly noted in the instructions), but I find this not to be much of a concern.
the many features (3 speeds, oscilation, ionization, timer, thermostat, digital temperature readout, removable and cleanable air filter, and "breeze mode" which shifts between multiple speeds for a more natural feel) along with the stylish look to the fan are well worth the listed price.
I've been using it nearly continuously for a month and have zero complaints as to it's operation, stability, or quality.
Bought for bedroom - way to big - more for family room
Noise level - not bad
Moves air but not like the older circular fans - more like the blade less fans.
Remote is nice when your laying in bed and dont want to get up
Great fan to stick in the corner of a room
1. This fan is the equivalent of a light breeze. This is nice and sufficient for some people, and would probably feel great in other climates, but for Florida in the summer, it's not enough. It has helped a little, but it's not the force I need. It barely makes a dent in my comfort. I want something that will blow hard, and over a larger area.
2. A ton of dust and lint have collected in the back. This may happen with all fans, and it doesn't help that I have two dogs, but this fan is much harder to de-lint than other models might be because of the narrow ridges and shaft in back.
3. I'm still hot. I wanted this fan because of good reviews AND because it looked nice and didn't take up a ton of room. It's sleek, I'll give it that. But I think if you really want a fan to cool down and you live someplace hot like I do, you probably need to just bite the bullet and buy either an expensive fancy fan or one of the box fans/upright circular wire-cage fans that'll really blow your skirt up.
...Seriously, I wear skirts. This fan does not blow them up.
