Ozeri 360 vs Ozeri 42" Ultra
June 25, 2014
I own the Ozeri 42" Ultra and decided to try the Ozeri 360. Let me just say that within 30 seconds of powering it up, I decided to trade it back in for another Ultra.
Side-by-side, the 360 is clearly louder than the Ultra. The 360 has a slight whine even at the lowest speed, and the whine gets slightly louder and higher pitched at higher speeds. Comparatively, at its lowest speed, the Ultra also makes noise but it's more of a "wind" noise than a "wind+whine" noise. At its highest speed, the Ultra is comparatively more quiet than the 360's highest speed.
Aesthetically, I never really cared for the 360's primarily red display, although I decided to give it a chance. It feels very 80's alarm-clockish. There's also a $50 price difference between the 360 and the Ultra, making the Ultra a better-value purchase.
The 360 is by no means a bad fan, hence the 4 stars- but I was going for quiet, and the Ultra delivers in that area. If you don't mind the price tag and a bit of white noise, then go for it. In terms of circulating air, both are equally capable. As for me, the Ultra is the clear winner.
