Best fan ever; expensive, but I love mine.
on October 12, 2016
Originally I purchased a circular unit for my grandmother and she loved it so much that I told myself that I would get one of my own, well, when I could afford one that is. That day finally came! I got a heck of a deal on a refurbished unit. The fan came in 3 pieces with easy enough visual direction stickers on how to assemble it. They say 1, 2, "click." But really you just line up the 1 arrows, and then move it to the 2 arrow for the click. For whatever reason, my base holder piece did not have a number 2 sticker, but it was easy to figure out without it. Once assembled and plugged in, cool are blew (or multiplied) throughout the room. It has 10 speeds, denoted by the visible digital number light that lit up above the power button at the base of the fan. This proved pretty strong for a wafer-thin oval-shaped (hollow and light) top, powered by a cylinder (mechanical part) fan the size of a football. But that is not all, because it is not loud like a vacuum cleaner (Dyson is known for their vacuums); it is in fact rather quiet, like a whispering vacuum (or something of that nature). I almost forgot, it came with a remote (okay, so it came in 4 parts, not 3, if you include the remote). It was taped to the main part for shipment, but it has a nifty internal magnet on the top of the fan that allows you to hold the remote in place for storage (buttons side facing down). The remote has a power button, an auto-rotation button (pans left and right), a speed up or down button, and a "+" and "-" auto-off timer button. the instructions say that you will need to occasionally wipe the top's "foil" part (inner ring) with a damp cloth for cleaning and use a soft brush to remove debris from the vent of bottom unit. So much easier than my previous bladed fan which required that I take it apart to clean. This is a definite 5-star product, I am pleased with it. If my rating changes, I will explain why. If you see 5 stars, it is still in use with no issues whatsoever (start date: 10-11-2016).
