It's exceptionally quiet because it uses a turbine - not blades. It moves a vast amount of air, even on low speed. It would blow away any typical $15 box fan. I'd be willing to bet that it would outperform an 18" Patten high velocity air circulator! It's also better than the similar looking Stanley, which get high marks from reviewers here.
I found that the Stanley is a smaller less powerful fan and it's not built as tough. Remember to compare the size and weight and you'll see a difference. For an extra $10, this fan is a much better buy.
Incidentally, I have 3 cats and I had suspected that cat fur might have reduced the performance of this fan ... so I decided to take it apart. This was easily done by removing approximately 8 screws. My suspicions were correct! I found what appeared to be a 1/2 inch thick blanket of cat hair on the turbine. This was nearly choking the air flow. I cleaned it out and then blew it out with my air compressor. The fan now runs like new, full force again.
The reason to tell this cat story is simply - you need to know that this fan is serviceable ... by you, as long as you own a Philips screwdriver. Other fans cannot be serviced and would NEVER last over 5 years.
I saw no reviews on this fan, so I felt compelled to let you know my experience. I would recommend this fan over ANY other fan without hesitation.
One last note: as an alternate choice, I also had this Lasko tower fan (turbine) for over 5 years. Lasko #4924 High Velocity Blower (overpriced here - $49 at Sam's Club)
The design is shared with a few other brands but this one additionally has the power outlets on the side. Those might come in handy for tools. The power cord is a large grounded version that is about 8' long. The angle (height) can be adjusted. Although I'd just like to point out here that due to the smaller than normal footprint of this fan, it can easily be sat on top of other things, making placement very flexible. It pulls air in from the side so if you are trying to pull in fresh air, it will need to be sat back a little farther than a standard fan with blades.
Noise, while present, is not excessive. Actually, it's not too bad at all. I could sit and watch TV with this thing running and it wouldn't be too distracting. The sound is a constant and doesn't consist of any clicking or rattling noises that would become annoying.
I really like this fan and plan to use it for many things.
It's very simply to fix, takes 15 mins, and just two tools.
You'll need a Philips screwdriver and a 10mm socket.
All but one of the screws are the same size, so no need to worry about what screw comes from what hole.
Unplug the unit!
With the unit sitting up right, take the 2 screws out of the black housing (opposite of the power side). One is just below the handle, one is in the back below the cylinder.
Now, sit the unit on its side (power side down). From the bottom supports, take out the two screws in each support from the side you've just taken the screws from.
Now, you can take off the outside panel with the grating on it.
With that off, you can see the handle attaches into the inside of the black housing. Here's the different screw you need to take off, from the handle, you'll see a smaller silver screw, take that off and now you can remove the cylinder with the inside black panel attached.
Lift up, you'll have to spin the cylinder around until you'll see there is a notch out of it that matches up with a notch on the inside. Sit the cylinder aside.Read more ›
They move a ton of air, and do it much quieter than a normal fan. Very highly recommended.
Just wanted to update my review a bit, I have had this fan going on at least 10 years and it still works just like new. It sure doesn't look like it, but I have had no problems what so ever with it. A few times it has gotten so dirty and full of dust that I have used my small pressure washer to blast it clean, and it still works great. Probably wouldn't recommend doing that, but hey it owes me nothing at this point.
