This particular tower fan has its Pros and Cons; unfortunately its hard to get around the biggest negative of the electronic speed control failing, so that pretty much iced the (original) two-star rating. But here goes anyways...
+ Quite possibly the quietest tower fan I've ever seen (or heard, actually) at any speed. Very good for bedroom use.
+ It has eight speeds instead of the standard three.
+ Temperature control allows you to select a room temp at which the fan will automatically turn on. It also shows you what the room temp currently is.
+ It has a select-able timer that automatically shuts off the fan after the set amount of time - up to eight hours.
+ Did I mention it was quiet?
- The LED control panel is quite bright, requiring using a piece of cardboard over it to keep the bedroom dark.
- Base is not as sturdy or solid as I would like, but it does the job.
- And saving the worst for last, the electronic speed control failed after one week of nighttime use. The light for the lowest speed shut off and the speed button was completely dead, forcing us to use the remote to change the speed.
= While not absolutely quiet at the highest speeds, it is still quieter than comparable tower fans pushing the same (or similar) amounts of air when on the top three speeds.
= Any temp or timer settings you set are cleared when the fan turns off.
= If you listen to this fan in a quiet room (especially at the lower speeds) you can hear it change speed and pitch ever so slightly. This is probably due to nothing more than voltage fluctuations from other items turning on and off in the house (A/C unit, kitchen appliances, electric water heater or pump, etc.) but it can be noticeable.
It's hard to get around the speed control failing after only one week, and this does not bode well for durability or longevity. Amazon replaced the broken fan with a new one without a problem and our hope is we just got a bad unit. I will update my review if the replacement fails or holds up over time.
And lastly, it is worth noting that there are differences between the black and white versions of this fan. Obviously, there is a $10 price premium for the black one, but the black version also has 8 speeds (versus 5 for the white) and the temperature setting option (that the white does not have at all). I do not know for sure, but there may also be other differences that might account for the wide range of reviews.
ADDENDUM, June 2015 - I am adding this note and updating my star rating from 2/5 to 4/5. It has been about 18 months since we received the replacement for the original failed unit, and the new one has been performing flawlessly ever since. We use it in our bedroom every night and so far nothing has failed, broken or changed for the worse. All of my original Pro's and Con's still stand, but since the replacement fan has shown to have good reliability I've decided to update this review. So far, all of the electronic controls continue to perform flawlessly, and we have covered the top panel with a piece of cardboard to block out the light from all of the LEDs. The only service I've done to this fan is run the brush from the vacuum cleaner over it about once a month to keep it clean. The noise levels remain low as well and we are pleased with this purchase, even though we did have to deal with one failed unit at first.
ADDENDUM, July 2016 - Just a note to let everyone know our fan finally died - but it wasn't the fan's fault! One of our dogs was jumping off the bed, hit the fan and knocked it over - breaking off the base and the oscillation mechanism. We had this fan for about two and a half years and right up to that point everything continued to work as described while remaining very quiet (especially at the lower speeds). When I took the fan apart to see if it could be repaired (it couldn't...) I noticed that it had it's fair share of dust built-up inside the body but the sound levels never really changed. We have a ceiling fan so the need for a tower fan has pretty much been eliminated, but this unit was a good purchase for as long as we were able to use it.
As for the fan, it's great. At the lowest setting it's super quiet and soft, at the highest it's loud and blows like mad. I use the White Noise setting at night and I sleep like a 40 year old man who has all sorts of demons inside and can't really sleep well but wants to pretend he does.
Disappointed in the fan, loved it at first, but for a fan which is used intermittently for a few months a year, I expected it to work for more than a year. Skip this one.
I had hoped to get this so I could scale back on my AC bill. Don't think it will make enough of a difference for that.
It is very quiet but given how little air it is pushing that is not that hard to do.
The Lasko Quiet fan is a little louder but moves enough air that I can at lease feel it (and have to worry about my papers moving around).
I would not recommend this fan unless it being quiet outweighs the need to move air.
