    DYSON AM06: SMALLER BUT AS COOL AS AM07 & AM08

    My review on "Dyson Cool Fan-AM06" is entirely favorable. This model's ten-inch annular aperture, as compared to larger and overall quite different designs of the models AM07 and AM08, does provide an approximate, yet appropriate, nearly half the flow of air magnification. However, in fairness, this AM06 model is intended for a somewhat different purpose, such as on a desktop or tabletop. These Dyson units are conceived with due consideration, and, even though this is a considerably measurable difference in airflow, the lesser magnification of air is somehow barely noticeable. All of the aforementioned models of Dyson Cool Fans are improved replacements of earlier models, and, as for the AM06, it actually has noticeably smoother operation #the manufacturer claims a significant improvement of seventy-five percent quieter#. Each unit comes equipped with a remote, although I fail to comprehend a reason why this simple and positive fact is often disputed by many of Dyson's Customer Service Agents. Some consumers remark, and I do concur, that the remote is very small and easily lost. The positive points of the remote commander is it helps to conveniently perform or change functions and settings at a distance, such as oscillation, speed, timer, and on/off. The remote is tiny and cute, contoured, and consideration has been applied to permit magnetic attachment of the remote to the unit. Although no additional remotes are currently available, when they hopefully will soon be, you may purchase extra or replacement remotes directly from the manufacturer, Dyson, at the cost of an average ordinary fan. If asked which of these various models I would recommend #I honestly like all of them#, the answer would positively depend upon your personal preferences and needs. For a consumer preferring a very slightly noticeable decrease in powerful airflow and/or a need for space efficiency, the AM06 is a very smart choice. Besides, while all of these are undeniably pricey investments, for any average consumer, this model is significantly lower in its regular cost. One manner of perceiving these impressive Dyson fans is that the bladeless concept is amazing, but, as for cost, the safety aspects of a fan operating without rotating blades, eliminating potential dangers, is priceless. Further, cleaning the inevitable dust accumulation from the unit, compared to any ordinary fan, is so much easier, it's a breeze. I, at least in my own opinion, must indicate that the unique styling of model AM07 lends best of all to the symbolism of this unique invention. Again, though, for numerous reasons, the AM06 is a great choice. Dyson Cool Fans, no matter which model one chooses to purchase, is an amazingly cool concept.

    Equivalent to a fan that’s worth $10

    I’ve wanted this product for years. When I first saw the display at the bestbuy store, I thought to myself “ wow, this blows out cool air as an air conditioner, but it’s just a fan !”. Because this product is expensive, and the description of it makes it seem as though it’s high quality, it gave off the idea that it blows out really cool air even on the hottest days. So yesterday I finally bought it, excited to see how it works after reading all of the good reviews, and let’s just say I’m returning it today. Less than 24 hours I’ve had the product and it serves no purpose . It blows out whatever air temperature the room is currently in. So if it’s 99 degrees outside and your room is super hot, this product is completely useless. It’s only cold in stores because the store is already cold !. Again, because of the price ( over 300 dollars) and the description of this product I thought it would do way more than a regular fan for $10 would do, but it does the same job. I do not know why this is so expensive , because it’s the exact same as a regular fan for a much cheaper price. I advise everyone that if you decide to spend hundreds of dollars on this, please don’t. I’m going today to exchange this for an actual air conditioner that’s actually less expensive than this. And with the remote being a part of this and being able to set a timer etc, doesn’t mean anything if it doesn’t even blow out cool air. Maybe I’m silly for thinking it was going to be a little cooler than your average fan, but this is absolutely not worth the amount that it’s for, not in the least. Just buy an actual air conditioner.

      Hi there, this is Krystal with Dyson. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on the Dyson AM06 Desk Fan. Air conditioning units and the Dyson Air Multiplier™ fan are two very different products that work in very different ways.  An air conditioner refrigerates the air it supplies, allowing the air in the room to be made cooler than the ambient temperature outside.  The Dyson Air Multiplier™ fan cools a person by moving air over and around them. It can be used in conjunction with an air conditioner to circulate cold air further and faster saving you money and energy.

      We understand you may have already returned the fan and would value the opportunity to learn more about your experience. Feel free to contact us at askdysonUS@dyson.com and we will be happy to help.

      Best Wishes,
      Krystal

    This fan is fantastic. It looks as well as it performs. I have the fan across the room to cool my small bedroom I'm the summer time. I was tempted to,step up and get the bigger unit- but the price of it threw me off from the purchase. This fan though does not disappoint. Fantastic fan. It looks very very good- and it feels very durable. I to had a problem thinking...over $200 bucks for a fan... Wow. But like everything you get what you pay for. This thing keeps me cool on the warmest of days so far. My only gripe is I wish it was a tad bit more powerful. This fan is unlike any other because it actually keeps my whole room cool. It's not like a regular fan where it just keeps the direction it's pointing in cool. It actually cools the whole room. I highly recommend this. Also. The black and nickel version is gorgeous. Looks really really beautiful and performs as well as it looks. The remote control added function is also really fantastic. It is magnetic so when you are not using it- you can attach the remote to the top of the fan. I turn my fan on low and oscillate it when I am not home. I come home to the whole room being nice and cool. Then when I want to go to bed- bam. Point that thing right at me and turn it up to 10. Makes for a great night sleep. Buy it. You will not regret purchasing this. You really do get what you pay for with this fan. Dyson makes great products and are well known for a reason. Their design, quality, and performance are worth every penny. I will purchase more of their products as long as I continue to have good success with their products.

    I love this fan! It has a very modern bladeless design, it's almost completely silent, and it moves a LOT of air in comparison to its size. We purchased it two weeks ago and have been using it nearly non-stop. Unfortunately, last night it started making strange noises while oscillating, Since the purchase was made with a repacement warranty, we're going to exchange it this afternoon. PROs: Attractive Design Operates very quietly Oscillates and tilts to direct airflow Responsive & easy to use remote control Tons of air movement (one afternoon I had it directed at me from 10ft and it kept me cool) Easy to clean CONs: LED display is like a lighthouse beacon in a darkened bedroom Targetting airflow to a specific point could be easier New noise during oscillation after only two weeks What would make this a PERFECT fan is adding a timeout to the LED display (or making it dimmable) and adding a timed laser pointer to assist targetting the airflow.

    I did a fair amount of both online and in person research before purchasing this product. In fact, I had purchased this fan about 4 or 5 years ago, prior to the redesign. I was so disappointed with the original that I returned it. Needless to say I gave it another shot and its clear that the times have definitely changed. The AM06 is much less noisy and is of noticeably better quality than the original. I would guess I have about 70 hours of usage with the AM06 fan thus far and I have absolutely no regrets. The AM06 has everything you could possibly need: oscillation, tilt, variable speeds, a sleep timer and a remote. Dyson claims that the technology in the fan is actually fairly similar to what is used in a jet engine - I thought that was pretty interesting. The fan is quiet, powerful and looks amazing. Best of all, there is no other fan on the market that can be kept clean as easily as the Dyson - wipe a damp cloth around the rim and the dust is gone. While other fans may be significantly less expensive, the premium paid for the Dyson is well worth the difference. There's no question I'll be buying the AM06 again for other rooms in the house.

    I'm a proud and happy owner of this sharp fan. I wholeheartedly trust Dyson and the technology that they make! I was of course terrified to purchase such a pricy fan when I could easily get a bladed fan for much cheaper but it's the whole package and that's why i'm glad to have bought it. It's quiet, it has a remote, a timer, no blades and it's not noisy. I grew up in a household filled with fans in the South so I enjoy the nice hum that a fan creates. This suits that for me as well because it still hums in a soft and quieter way. It has 10 levels of air that it will circulate and that is also super helpful. I sleep with my dog and he gets hot really fast so this has helped immensley to circulate air and cool us both down. A little pricy but overall a great fan and it's pretty too!

    It is overpriced

    It is a nice product, but for the money it cost I expected more. Pros: very quiet, gives nice cool/fresh breath of air, compact, can be "tilted" and looks good/modern. Cons: expensive, few control options and not as powerful as expected-> For the money I paid I expected a little more power and better control options: the only controls you have on the the unit itself are "on" and "off" (same button) the rest is on the remote (so if you loose it - the remote is small - you loose you control off the unit). The remote can: adjust airflow from 1-least to 10-most powerful (you can hardly feel it about 12feet away) air flow, timer -from 15 min to 9hrs (useless unless you think you can forget to turn it of yourself), and oscillation control (you can not set the angle of turn). Overall if you have some extra cash and you want a quiet unit - which is the my biggest reason why I kept it - it gives a low ambient noise (I used it a few times to fall asleep without turning on AC) and it will be standing close to you, than this fan will be good for you.

      Hi there. Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your AM06. Our AM06 has been re-engineered to be up to 75% quieter and more energy efficient, without compromis¬ing performance. The fan has re-engineered airflow paths for reduced air turbulence. This makes the machine quieter and more energy efficient. It has a number of new features such as remote control, sleep timer and improved oscillation. The remote controls on all new fans can be used to turn the machines on and off, adjust airflow power, and control the oscillation and a sleep timer which can be set between 15 minutes and nine hours. I hope the information provided was helpful. Should you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at: askdysonUS@dyson.com. We are happy to provide additional support. Best wishes, Christina. Dyson-EN_US

    If you work in an office and you share your office space with someone (or work in a cubicle where you're near other co-workers), then this fan is a must have! Not only is it super quiet, but it's powerful enough to keep you cool if your office room is too warm or stuffy from sharing it with others. My office room is big and contains a window where the sun always shines through during the afternoon, causing the room to heat up all the time. Not only does it get hot as a result, but I also split the room with another co-worker because it's a 2-person office room, so it tends to get rather stuffy at times as well. Having this fan is a lifesaver and definitely cools me down while being quiet so as not to disturb my coworker. Heck, when my co-worker noticed it, she didn't even know it was turned on because it was so quiet! Sure, it appears too large for my desk, but I don't mind as long as it's quiet and not disturbing.
