UPDATE: Problems After Two Months
on June 27, 2014
UPDATE: This fan has started clicking and humming when it oscillates after two months of use. I have used this fan for 7 hours 5-6 times per week, so it hasn't received extensive use. I do not recommend this product.
I am not a blogger, nor did I receive this fan free from Ozeri. I'm just a guy who has three bedrooms that he needs to keep cool at night.
I have purchased from Amazon this summer this Ozeri fan, the Ozeri Ultra 42 inch Adjustable Oscillating Tower Fan with Noise Reduction Technology, and the Lasko 2551 Wind Curve Platinum Tower Fan With Fresh Air Ionizer.
I like the Ozeri Ultra 42 Oscillating fan ($99.95 on Amazon right now) the best. This Ozeri 360 Oscillation Fan has a couple advantages, but is overall not as good IMO.
If you need a tower fan that oscillates 360 degrees because you're going to set it in the middle of a room, then this is obviously the way to go. This fan is a little sleeker that the other Ozeri or the Lasko cited above. It may be marginally quieter than the other Ozeri, but not significantly so.
The big downside to this fan is that, as mentioned by a previous poster, the tower doesn't sit perfectly in the joint and so it kind of wobbles slightly as it oscillates. The fan is also not as powerful as either the other Ozeri model or the Lasko.
Both Ozeri fans have a night mode that all but eliminates light from the LED panel (a big advantage over the Lasko).
I am happy with this fan so far (I've had it one month), but I'm happier with the Ozeri Ultra 42. It's not as sleek looking, but it performs better and seems a bit sturdier.
