NOT WORTH THE MONEY
Posted by: jeanging77 from: on
Me and my boyfriend bought this fan because we had a $300 gift card to Best Buy. We still had to pay an additional $127 to purchase this item. After the MANY positive reviews we made our purchase. WHAT A MISTAKE. Dyson and many reviews state how quiet and powerful this fan is. Wrong on both. This fan is louder than the $50 Holmes fan we purchased last year. Even on level 10 this fan is so weak. It has half the power my other fan has. EXTREMELY DISSAPOINTED. The ONLY benefit I can see in purchasing this fan is for someone with a small child because there are no blades to cut themselves on BUT EVEN SO...this fan is in NO WAY worth $400. SAVE YOUR MONEY!!

Not worth the money
Posted by: nicknamerequired from: on
The air barely moves around the room, but you can rest assured that it is on because it so loud. I returned this product and got a tower Vornado instead....

Expensive, but functional

Does what it is supposed to do. For the cost, you could probably find a cheaper alternative. Performance not worth price, even for a fan of dyson like myself.

I really debated about this fan at the price, but I had tried others and was not impressed. I hit Best Buy during its 20% off discount sale on small appliances. I also had another discount coupon plus reward zone points. So, I ended up getting the fan at half off. Still expensive, but a little more justified as the fan feels and looks quality. I wanted "white noise" to help sleep and extra air circulation. This fan on the highest setting (10) sounds like you are inflight on a commercial airliner or in a hotel room with the rooms A/C unit cranked up to high! Just a smooth steady white noise sound that helps with a good night's sleep. Around 5 or less, you barely hear it. Anyway, no fan is ever going to be "quiet." The air coming from it is impressive at all levels. I can sit it directly on the floor and the height is perfect for airflow right across the top of my bed. The remote is great. The magnetic feature to set it on the top of the unit is nice. Cleaning will be easy. It was an easy set up right out of the box. It is an unobtrusive fan. Looks great. Performs awesome. If you can get it on sale, I highly recommend it.

DYSON TOWER FAN-AM07 IS TRULY COOL!!!
Posted by: GREAT2BHERE from: U.S.A. on
THIS REVIEW PERTAINS TO THE DYSON COOL-AM07 TOWER FAN - IN BLUE/IRON COLOR STYLING, AND IS INDICATED AS THE FIRST BEST BUY CUSTOMER REVIEW EVER ON THIS PRODUCT, SO I HOPE TO DO IT JUSTICE. HOWEVER, I CANNOT SAY MUCH ON THIS SUBJECT, AS THE HIGH-TECH CONCEPT OF A BLADELESS FAN JUST LEAVES ME AT A LOSS FOR WORDS...................................... NAH, I'M JUST KIDDING!!! I INTEND TO TRY MY BEST, SO HERE GOES. THE DYSON COOL-AM07 TOWER FAN IS SO COOL THAT IT ALMOST BLOWS ME AWAY. IN MY PERSONAL OPINION, THE BLUE/IRON COLORING ADDS A RATHER NICE ACCENT TO AN OVERALL DESIGN THAT APPROPRIATELY REPRESENTS THE HIGH-TECH NATURE OF THIS PRODUCT. DYSON BLADELESS FANS ARE AVAILABLE IN A VARIETY OF SIZES, COLORS, AND DESIGNS TO FIT YOUR OWN NEEDS OR PREFERENCES. THE NEW AM07 MODEL IS A REPLACEMENT AND, EVEN MORE NOTICEABLE, A SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT OVER ITS PREDECESSOR THE AM03. CONVERSELY TO THE OLDER MODEL AM03, THIS NEW MODEL AM07 IS CONSIDERABLY QUIETER AND SMOOTHER IN OPERATION. ALL DYSON COOL FANS COME WITH A TINY, CONTOURED REMOTE CONTROLLER, APPROXIMATELY THE SIZE OF AN AVERAGE BASIC CELL-PHONE BATTERY. SINCE THE REMOTE IS SO TINY, IT IS EASILY PRONE TOO LOSS OR ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE. DYSON HAS, ALSO, PUT CONSIDERATION INTO THIS FEATURE BY ALLOWING IT TO ATTACH MAGNETICALLY TO THE FAN ITSELF. FURTHER, IF SOME UNFORTUNATE INCIDENT WERE TO OCCUR, REPLACEMENT REMOTES ARE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE AT A FAIR PRICE. ADMITTEDLY, THE PRICE OF SUCH FANS IS QUITE EXORBITANT AND A BIT SHOCKING. IF THIS PRODUCT WOULD ALSO PROVIDE THE FURTHER BENEFITS OF AN AIR-CONDITIONER, I THINK MANY COULD THEN PERCEIVE THE EXPENSIVE COST AS MORE THAN REASONABLE. ALL DYSON FANS, NO MATTER HOW IMPRESSIVELY HIGH-TECH THEIR OPERATION IS, PROVIDE AN AMAZING APPROACH TOWARD A QUITE SIMPLISTIC FUNCTION. EVIDENTLY, HIGH-TECHNOLOGY SEEMS TO EQUAL HIGH PRICING. IF, PERHAPS, MORE CONSUMERS WOULD BE DESIROUS TO OWN THE FEATURES OF SUCH A FAN, AND COULD HAVE THE ABILITY TO AFFORD THE CURRENT EXORBITANCE OF ITS COST, MORE OF SUCH FANS WOULD BECOME POPULAR AND THE PRICE MAY, IN THE FUTURE, BECOME MORE REASONABLE. MAY WE FOCUS SOLELY ON THE UNDENIABLY CRUCIAL ASPECT OF SAFETY, WHICH ALL MUST AGREE IS POSITIVELY PRICELESS. THE BLADELESS FAN DOES, INDEED, OFFER A SUPERIOR LEVEL OF SAFETY, AS COMPARED TO A FAN WITH ROTATING BLADES. A BLADELESS FAN ENSURES PROTECTION IN THAT MANNER, IF YOU HAVE A CHILD, OR A PET, OR IF YOU VALUE PROTECTION OF YOUR OWN FINGERS, HAIR, ETC. ANYHOW, I'VE ALWAYS POSSESSED A DEEP INTEREST IN SCIENCE AND A CREATIVE IMAGINATION; THOUGH, I CANDIDLY HAD NOT ANTICIPATED THAT I'D EVER SEE OR OWN A QUITE SIMPLISTIC PRODUCT, WHICH I CERTAINLY FIND TO BE SUCH AN AMAZING CONCEPT. I SOMETIMES PONDER WHICH IS A MORE INCREDIBLE INVENTION...THE CELL-PHONE OR THE BLADELESS FAN. IT'S HARD TO DECIDE, AS BOTH SHARE THE ASPECTS OF HIGH-TECH CAPABILITIES AND BASIC PRACTICALITY, YET THEY ARE VERY, VERY DIFFERENT. ANYHOW, I DO TRUST MY REVIEW PROVES HELPFUL TO OTHERS, SINCE I BELIEVE THIS ADEQUATELY SUMS UP, MAYBE NOT EVERY DETAIL, BUT MOST OF IT. I SURELY HOPE OTHERS, TOO, CAN ENJOY THE BENEFITS AND FORTUNATELY OWN SUCH A NICE AND REMARKABLE PRODUCT. AND, LET'S ALL TRY TO KEEP COOL!!!

It was just as loud as my box fan and didn't seem to move as much air. Way to much money for what you get.

I like the fan, it pushes out a lot air, but it does make a high pitch noise that can irritating. Will be calling in for warranty.

DYSON COOL-AM07: I AM A FAN OF THIS MAGICAL FAN!!!
Posted by: LOYAL2BBY from: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA on
This review is on the "Dyson Cool-AM07 Tower Fan". In my perspective, the unique design of this particular model, compared to the models AM06 and AM08, is kind of symbolic of this product's high-tech nature. When you look at this model, you instantly recognize that it is certainly no ordinary fan. Honestly, regardless of how exorbitantly priced this product is, I just had to purchase, own, and personally experience this extraordinary approach toward providing a relieving breeze. Along with this high-tech approach toward what any ordinary fan is basically capable of doing, comes an exorbitant price. However, other quite ordinary and bulkier, yet very powerful fans, as "Vornado", are in a pricey range, too. I am, of course, not all that pleased with the fact that I could have enjoyed a good chunk of savings during the soon to follow Memorial Day sales event, which offered a $50 discount off the regular price. I placed my purchase upon this product's initial introduction, at regular pricing. To be entirely truthful, I had been definitely anticipating that this product would likely be sold at a lower cost if I simply waited a bit. Actually, models AM06, 07, and 08 were put on the market as replacements for, or improvements of, earlier released models, which had a noticeably louder noise during operation, especially at the higher speeds. Many customers bought the preceding models at an equally full price, and those models are often offered at clearance pricing now. All these newer models are unmistakably smoother and quieter during operation, though whether the louder noise of the earlier models is really a problematic issue to any customer is rather subjective. As for this, again uniquely designed, model AM07, it is an impressive fan. The manufacturer claims an improvement of significantly reduced noise, and it does run smoothly and quietly. As with cooling via any type of fan, there's the benefit of energy efficiency, but I must remark that the motor at the base, unlike conventional fan motors, doesn't seem to even become warm. At the center of the unit's base, there is one button. Most of the functions may be adjusted by directly pressing this button; though much more can be adjusted by using the accompanying remote, and certainly with more convenience. The remote can turn the unit on/off, adjust speed, timer, oscillation, etc. The remote controller is really small, and it's contoured to allow for magnetic attachment to the top of the unit. This is a helpful feature, since the size and lightweight nature of the remote leaves it vulnerable to misplacement or loss. Supposedly, additional remotes are available for purchase directly from Dyson, at a cost of approximately twenty dollars each, yet I and others have been told that such parts aren't available while these models are still in the "launch phase". I would hope that these fans will, eventually, decrease in price so as to become affordable to any consumer. Candidly, it isn't as if one cannot live without owning such an extraordinary fan, but it's surely nice to have such an attractive and fascinating product. In fact, when I am using it, I sometimes find that just looking at and pondering the unique concept and appearance is sort of fascinating, and slightly distracting from the heat, and that can additionally lend to its heat relieving capabilities. Incidentally, these fans are also a superb manner by which to accompany air-conditioning and efficiently circulate the cooled air. Further, and perhaps most important, there are no rotating blades, and the feature of a bladeless fan offers a vital element of safety. If this product can prevent injuries to children, pets, etc., everyone might concur that the expensive investment may be worth it. Well, realistically, the current pricing is rather exorbitant for the average consumer, and, again, hopefully bladeless fan products will eventually become less and less expensive. Anyway, this product is truly amazing and is pleasant to own.

Pricey, but amazingly powerful
Posted by: Ryan from: on
I live in a westward facing apartment in the middle of the desert, so I need as much airflow as I can get. The Dyson AM07 has been a great addition to my home. The bladeless design is truly a work of art that looks great in any room. The fan is quiet at most settings, but as you approach the higher settings, it definitely becomes noticeable. However, I've found that even the lower settings are more than adequate for most rooms. I leave the fan on setting 6 in my bedroom at night, and I've been able to sleep perfectly with a pleasant breeze cooling the room.
My favorite feature of the AM07 is the way it distributes air evenly rather than forcing it all in one direction (like standard tower fans). Air feels as if it is contouring around my body rather than blowing right in my face. You don't even have to be directly in front of the fan to feel the air moving -- the fan seems to swirl air around the entire room.
My only gripe is that the remote is rather small and the buttons on it are very hard to see (especially on the white model). I also wish there were control buttons on the fan itself, rather than always needing the remote to make adjustments. These minor gripes aside, this is an amazingly powerful fan that is certainly worth the price.

It's a good fan, pretty quiet, pushes a nice amount of air.
The only downside is that the intake is at the bottom, so it gathers a lot of dust quickly.
