If you have an office that gets warm but you also are required to be in conference calls or do not want to disrupt your coworkers with fan noise, this is the fan for you. I would also suggest it for a home office or a workbench.
The adjustment for the fan is a simple tilt method and is strong and sturdy at any position. The fan stays in place thanks to the 5 rubber grommets on the base, which also lessens vibration.
There are two settings, I and II. I is "LOW" and II is "HIGH". There is a substantial noise difference between the two, but it is still quiet enough to not bother my coworkers and after a while, the ambient white noise sound will fade away.
I highly suggest this fan as a super quiet desk fan. Quality components and long lasting.
From point 3 below....
After adjusting the propeller ( pulling out out a bit from the body housing) the rubbing sound has subsided. This seems to have fixed the problem.
So, for others that have this issue out of the box, you may wish to try this simple adjustment. It is not intuitive, hence the reason for this post/review.
A few things:
1. Right size and power
2. Quiet ( smooth sound once I figured out point 3 below)
3. Yet an issue ( so far)... the propeller was making a sound as if something was rubbing on the inside of the blade-nose.
I pulled the nose out just a bit ( away from the housing) and the noise stopped. Yet if I moved (tilted) the unit the noise
would return, SO:
4. I will try the unit for a few days and if the noise returns, I will return the unit.
5. I do like the unit as it looks well made. I am in hopes the manufacturer reads this and can correct any future issues ( for others)
After that, it was extremely quiet. The fabric blades make it extremely quiet, and reduce risk of injury. This fan is quieter than the floor vent in my office cube, and coworkers are unable to hear that I have a fan (on it's highest setting). Currently, I am using the Zippi in the floor pointed upward towards me from under my desk. If not for the breeze, I would not know it was there.
I'll comment on longevity of the product after I've had it a while longer.
+ Mobile - Can be positioned very easily even at some awkward angles
+ Soft blades - The blades are made out of some cloth like material. When opening it this made me nervous however it is PERFECT! Because you don't have a bulky frame around the blades it allows you to put it in more places without fear of damaging anything. Every now and then I will reach for something near it not realizing it was on (picture attached to show the near invisible blades when on) and get "Zapped". I use that word because the sound it makes and the mental shock reminds me of getting zapped. As soon as I pull my hand back quickly I laugh a little and put my hand back in it intentionally because the feeling is interesting. Your mind says "This will hurt you!!!! STOP" but.. nothing... lol
... I tried. The only thing I can think of as a negative is that I forget that it is on!!! Just came back from a 6 day break to find I hadn't shut it off!!! I don't want to work this thing to death too quickly so for that I wish that it had an optional timer of some sorts.
