    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    COOL X 2

    oneOpinion

    Never thought I would see the day I would spend $$$ on a table fan. So, first of all, if you on a budget skip it. Second of all, if you're not into to 'COOL', skip it. Third of all, if you don't appreciate the engineering put into a product, skip it. Having said that, I really like this fan; it's quiet, it functions as advertised, it's well made, and it's COOL! I love justifying my pricey purchase to people by telling them "well it has a Helmholtz cavity". I have owned a number of fans in my lifetime, some were OK, most were cheap junk. There are fans that will move more air, however, they sound like a B-29 on a bombing run. This fan moves sufficient air quietly and in a manner of speaking 'gracefully'! If you can afford it, get it!

    Usually there's not much to say about a fan except that it blows air. While that applies to the Dyson fans as well, there's so much more to them. The bladeless design makes it safe for kids and pets which I was worried about with my cat trying to play with it. It's also extremely quiet compared to most other fans of similar power. Heck, if anything, I'm willing to pay a bit more just for the great designs they have. The only real detractor can be the price, but you get what you pay for with a very high quality item that isn't going to break in a year or two. I still got 4 years of the Geek Squad Protection so that I could just have anything taken care of from the store if something does happen to it. I've been selling the Dyson products for a couple years, but I really got the desire to purchase one of the fans after seeing them in several anime series that I had purchased. Another case of very successful advertising even if Dyson didn't pay for it!

    I really love this fan. I have it on a bedside table and it keeps me cool during the night. It's reasonably quiet and doesn't generate that much noise until you turn it to "6" or higher. I love the fact it has a remote and I can have it turn from facing my bed to facing my desk when I'm doing work and could use a bit of fresh air. The only drawback I can find with it is that the LED that shows what speed setting on which the fan is set is a little too bright, especially when it's ~2 feet from my head when I'm going to sleep. I wish there was a way to dim it, but over the course of however many months I've owned it, I have gotten used to the brightness. I will certainly look to buying the larger, different model, in the future. And again, the remote control makes this Dyson steps above the last generation.

    After a little over a year I decided to buy this fan. I'm glad I did since I got the new model. The fan it's amazing, it's stylish, the air feels like a nice cold breeze. I like the controller, it's also stylish and small. I was hesitant to buy it after watching and reading some reviews online regarding the remote and fan features. I found out that if the remote breaks or get lost, you can buy it for 19.99 on dyson.com also, you can actually control the intensity (up and down) holding the power button (great technology) . This fan is well design and it's worth it. I see it like my blender (a Blendtec) which I paid $450 for and was hesitant to buy at the beginning and after having it for a while I see that it's worth every penny.

    Quiet Hum and Great Air Flow

    So it's been about a month with this little fan and it packs more than I thought! Picture it, Austin TX in the middle of the summer with dry arid heat. I got this and all I wanted was something to circulate air differently because the ceiling fan wasn't doing it. This Dyson Fan does that for me. It's so quiet, I can set a timer so that once i'm sound asleep it can shut off and it does not take up a lot of space on my dresser. The oscilating function is amazing and the remote that it comes with is sleek and very helpful during those nights when the timer has gone off and I need to get air flowing again to cool the room down. Great purchase and worth the buy, I have had Dyson vacuums and I don't know why I ever thought to hesitate in getting a fan as well! Very happy with this fan.

    I couldn't be happier with this heater if I tried! I purchased it as supplemental heat for a bedroom in an older home, which has had very little heat for years. Initially I intended to only use the heater to warm up the room before bed, but ended up using it all the time, including while sleeping. I feel completely comfortable doing this because there are no exposed heating elements and because the thermostat does an amazing job of regulating the temperature. I have read other reviews which stated that it was not worth the money spent on it, and I have to completely disagree, this is worth every penny! I can't wait to see how well it does keeping the room cooler in the summer! Would I recommend this to a friend - Absolutely! Without a doubt.

    Very compact so can sit anywhere, I have mine on the kitchen bar facing the living room. For such a small device it packs a good punch in circulating air. Within minutes at 10 we are able to cool a 900sqft area in 20mins. This is very useful for us when we want to push stagnant air outwards. The blue is true to royal blue and the remote is magnetized so it can be easily stowed on top of the unit without worry of getting lost. The only complaint I have about this unit is the level of "noise" it makes. From reviews I had read prior to purchasing it made this unit sound as if it is practically silent. You can hear the air circulating through the unit but all and all that would be the only complaint I have.

    I purchased this item on Black Friday to take advantage of the savings. Straight out of the box there was a hairline crack in the plastic along the interior ring. I wasn’t concerned about it since it was just an exterior blemish which didn’t look like it would affect the performance. I have had the fan for a month now, using it periodically and I am highly distraught by how quickly this item is deteriorating. About a week ago a soft clicking started to resound as the fan oscillated and shortly after that it started to become unresponsive when I press on the remote to turn the oscillation feature on and off. It’s a shame that the fan is so wonky because I do enjoy the ‘bladeless’ feature.

    The remote control did not work consistent, did not seem to move the air that we thought it should, and the very worst thing about this fan is the beacon light. Why do all manufactures have to have a light on every device?? We bought this fan for a bedroom fan. Highly recommend not getting this fan if that is what you are needing or wanting it for. There is a reason this is called a desktop fan, you do not want to use it as a nighttime sleeping fan. The power light is so bright it will keep you awake. For the bright light, remote not working, poor air flow, and the price, we boxed it up and it went back to the store.

    This fan cools just fine, and is light enough for me to carry to other places in the house. However, i like to sleep under a fan at night and this fan has a BRUTALLY bright white light (showing the fan speed)that cannot dimmed or turned off. It shines directly in my face & is extremely annoying. I have to find something to put in front and block the light, but then the sensor is also blocked so then i can't use the remote. Terrible design for a product at its price point.

    Great fan. Here's what I Like/Love about it: -Very Very easy to set up. Attach two pieces, turn, click, and plug in -Fan speed settings (10# -Magnet at the top of the fan to hold the remote in place -Warranty #2yr# *I'd like to see the fan host the following features: -Bluetooth -Wi-Fi -Oscillate up and down#as is oscillates side to side# -Price #could be a little more reasonable with this) Overall this is a Great fan. My wish list may seem a bit farfetched or futuristic, however, if the Dyson fan is to be sleek, modern, stylish, and somewhat the Future of Fan's, then I'd like to see my wish list incorporated into them in the near future. Would I recommend this fan to my friends? Sure. Again, overall, it's a Great Fan.
