We wondered if we overestimated the original fan's performance, but no, it still worked great. Being curious (and stubborn) old coots, we took the new fan apart just to see what we could find. Nothing seemed out of order, but once the fan was reassembled, it became much more powerful - just like the first one!
Since then we have discovered that on this second fan, the plastic parts that screw down to hold the pieces together tend to drift loose - and very quickly. Every week or two, we have to take the thing apart (which is easy enough) and tighten the same two screw-on parts (one behind the blades, one in front). We have never tested to see if tightening only one part would do the job. We just do them both, and afterwards, the fan perks right up. We've never had to do this on the first fan we purchased.
That first fan, also from Amazon, was in retail packaging (a blue two-piece box with product images and description). The second one was in "frustration free packaging" (a plain corrugated cardboard box with the pieces wrapped in plastic). Whether this has anything to do with the problem, we can't know.
We wanted to let people know, understanding that buyers might be tempted to give up and toss the thing if it acts like our second one does and they don't know how to fix the problem.
The price is right too! Super fast delivery from Amazon!
Lasko makes good fans, period. And this one is no exception. We have never really had any issues. When you first get yours, you might think it will be not so reliable because is is all plastic. But do not let that sway your opinion. The plastic makes the unit lighter and therefore easier to do it's job. In either oscillating mode or still mode it cools the room very quickly. If you have aiur conditioning, you can raise your thermostat during the warmer months and use the fan to keep the cool air cool.
Now, sound wise - I have two fans. I use a square floor model "box fan" in my bedroom because I am one of those who is addicted to the louder noise of the box fan - and cannot sleep without it. The Lasko Pedestal fan is too quiet for me for sleeping - but a bonus for thise who do not like noise! LOL! Perfect in the living room because even on high it does not interfere with the television! Winner!
It came as parts in a box, which at first looked pretty intimidating, but once I started to put it together, it was very easy and it took less than 5 minutes to construct. The cage seems cheaper than the metal wire cages on the fans we grew up with, but lets face it, those loosened up and started to rattle over time.
The motor seems plenty strong, and it moves a decent amount of air on high. The noise level on high isn't too bad... the same as any other house fan I've ever owned and a lot less than the portable work fans we use. Just a wooshing sound. On medium and low it's very quiet.
I can't speak for it's longevity, because I've only been using this for a week (purchased May, 2015). This fan is as smooth running

I have a Lasko desk fan that works quite well, so I decided to get a Lasko when I needed a standing fan. This product is not like its cousin. Read morePublished 18 hours ago by SummerKy

This fan is great! It was very easy to assemble. I love it because it is just the right height. Has 3 speeds and oscillates! The front grate comes off for easy cleaning.Published 2 days ago by dsudyrep
It's a lot to put together...comes remarkably disassembled. But GREAT after that. Lightweight so can take around the house from room to room. Low speed is truly low. Read morePublished 3 days ago by GH
