    Expensive, but quiet and beautiful.

    I purchased this as I needed something for the bedroom when I sleep. I sweat when I sleep regardless of whether or not the duvet is only half covering me. You can set this to 4 or 5 and have it running all night. This fan does not produce the low rumbling sound of most fans with traditional blades. Even most tower fans introduce noise due to the blades beating and forcing the air through. The quiet efficiency of the AM07 is due to the blade design and cavity the air moves through. The noise produced by the AM07 is mostly just air movement, closer to the sound of white noise than anything else. The marketing literature on the engineering of the cavity that the air moves through is evident. While I wouldn't agree that the fan is truly "bladeless", as you need some sort of blade to make the air move, but the design of this turbine-like blade does allow the air to flow over it with a minimum of friction. This and the fact that the motor & blade is fully contained in a tuned cavity means it is much quieter. Since I run the fan every night, it has even saved me quite a bit on my utility bill since I don't need to use central air/heat all the time. The Dyson AM07 is also aesthetically pleasing to the eye, so can happily live in any room and be totally unobtrusive. Though the AM07 was expensive, I can totally appreciate the exceptional engineering of it. It will certainly pay for itself within a few months of savings to my energy bill.

    Good fan but a little loud

    On TV commercials, you hear all about how the Dyson fans have a smooth airflow, and how you can't hear the motor. Well, the commercials are right. The airflow is great -- their "air multiplier" stuff really helps move the air more than a regular tower fan. The fan also offers a full 90-degree rotation, unlike other fans that only rotate 60 degrees. Those two features help keep my living room cooler than the tower fan I used previously. On the other hand, while you can't hear the motor, you do hear the air itself, as it squeezes through the tiny vents around the tower. Imaging the sound of the air blowing from your lips while you whistle without actually whistling, and you start to come close to the sound from the fan. I would never use this in a bedroom at its highest speed, because the sound would be too loud to sleep through. In the living room, at a relatively low speed (setting 4, out of 10), the sound level is modest enough for conversation and comfort. The remote control has a handy little feature. It's magnetic and attaches to the top of the tower, making the remote easier to keep track of. You do need to hang on to the remote -- while you can turn the fan on/off and control the power level without the remote, you do need the remote to get the fan to rotate. But all Dyson products come with a literal cost, and this fan is no exception. Dyson doesn't allow vendors to put their items on sale, so you should wait until Dyson themselves have a sale, which then carries down to vendors. If you can, take advantage of coupons. That's the only way I was able to justify the purchase. Otherwise, if you just want a decent tower fan, there are many other less-expensive options.

    I purchased this fan because it's supposed to be 60% quieter than the previous model. I owned the first model and it is definitely a lot quieter while deliver the same amount of air. I think Dyson could have stepped it up a notch and made the engine a little more powerful, but the loop is very very light I feel that it would just wobble all over the place. I did have to return it because the oscillating feature on the fan I purchased was making a weird noise, but I'm just waiting on the refund to go back on my credit card so I can purchase the nickel colored fan. I would definitely recommend if you want great looks and cutting edge technology albeit for a hefty price.

    I bought the AM07 because I'm extremely sensitive to how things look in my living room... couldn't have an ugly fan sitting in there! The Dyson looks great and its fanless design means that it'll have a minimal visual impact on the room. Against a white wall it's easy to forget that it's in there. Performance is good, but nothing to write home about. It moves air well but can get a bit noisy at the higher power levels (6 and above). I really like that it has a timer so I can have it blow air from outside for a few hours after I go to bed then shut off automatically. Overall I'm happy with the purchase although there may be a bit of form over function at play here.

    I got this fan because of my cats. It's been so hot that I want to leave the fan on even when I am not in the house. But I am worry about regular fan with the blade that might be dangerous with the cats around. My 20 years old senior kitty doesn't see as well any more and she bums into things when she roams around the house. So the Dyson is perfect without the blade and still provide good air flow. I don't find it noisy as the fan is actually doing what it designs to do, move air around. Will consider to buy another one for the bedroom. I took a point off because of the price.

    I wanted a fan that was bladeless!

    I wanted a fan that was bladeless so my one and a half year old daughter wouldn't get her hands hurt! This fan being bladeless obviously hit that point but the built in cooling and the remote are nice features that make it even nicer. My only reason for rating four stars instead of five is that the remote had to have a direct view of the base of the fan, if an rf remote were to have been with it instead I'd easily rank the full five stars. Would recommend still!

    I really like this fan. The noise level puts me right to sleep! My only complaint and the reason it got 4 stars instead of 5 is because I wish the sensor for the remote was at the top of the fan instead of the bottom. I have it at the foot of my bed and it will not turn on/off unless the remote is pointing to the sensor at the bottom of the fan; thus requiring me to get out of bed to power on/off (god forbid I know but still a minor inconvenience).

    Great purchase and very powerful. At a 5 setting alone it does the job....and the settings go up to 10, so you can imagine. The ONLY con that I have is that I ordered it online and the packaging was horrible. It was delivered in the box that it came in and not packaged with any protection. Glad I got the warranty just in case. I recommend this but pick it up at the store and don't opt for delivery.

    Great fan one flaw

    I love the fan. It is powerful, sleek and quiet. There is one major flaw and that is with the remote. It is super tiny and is the only way to control speed and movement. I have had the fan a week and have lost it twice that resulted in 30 min searches. I have kids and animals and it is easy to move. The remote should snap into the flan to at least have a storage spot. I will not buy another until addressed.

    So my wife loves sleeping with a fan, and this is absolutely one of the best fans I have ever used. Great air flow, remote control, sleek and effective. Still a bit in expensive side, hence the 4 star rating for cost versus value, but worth it for a gift-and it on sale for a better deal

    I have had the Dyson fan for more than a month now and while the air flow is good, it is a bit pricy. For this price, perhaps it should have the ability to adjust the height as well. I am using a step stool to get the right height which is a bit silly for a $300 fan.

    I've had for 2 Mos now after reviewing, I love the look. It cools me when I need it. Not really noisy, pleasant white noise. Love the 10 settings and oscillating feature. Light weight and small footprint. I don't like that you can't control any other features besides the on and off without the remote control. I think it's a bit pricey for a fan, but I like the look of it, so I splurged.

    This fan is powerful for the size. I got it thinking it would cool that my living room during the past heat wave. However, it did not. It did cool down the living room just a bit. For its size, I recommend it more for a bedroom rather than a big space. If you are looking to cool a bigger space, I recommend just getting an A/C unit.

    Its a very expensive fan, liked the bladeless feature. Timer is nice function. The led function light on the bottom of the fan is very bright in a dark bedroom. Above 5 the fan gets loud not the greatest for sleeping if you are a light sleeper. Easy to clean. Wouldn't buy again at this price

    This was purchased for use in a bedroom in lieu of adding a ceiling fan to provide air circulation while sleeping. Although it was not too noisy for waking use, at night, when everything else was quiet, it was too noisy to sleep with and we returned it. It was a beautiful fan and worked very well. It was just too noisy for our specific use.

    The fan works great!!! My only issue is the noise level. I've read reviews previous to this purchase that mentioned it is quiet. Older versions of Dyson fans must have been really noisy in order for this one to be considered quiet. It's not totally quiet but the noise level of this fan is tolerable, even while I'm sleeping.

    This fan looks great and performs well but it is pricey. Being a high tech company and this a high tech product I would expect a WiFi App or voice control to operate the fan at this price point. The front ON light should be able to be turned off for someone who wants a dark room while the fan is running.

    It is a reasonably quiet and efficient fan. It eliminates the pulsating effect that most fans produce. It seems to make the air more pleasant, but it is not an air conditioner, and it is wise to keep your expectations in check when you pay so much for this unit.

    The fan is great up close (within a couple feet), but does not have much air flow farther out. It states it's 60% quieter than previous models, but still fairly loud compared to cheaper tower fans. It is a good fan, but not sure if it's $300+ good.

    It is a Dyson--nicely designed and functions well. It is quiet at the low fan mode and has a timer. However, let's be realistic; it is pricey for a tower fan. If I did not need a fan in an urgent matter and there were other choices in the store, I probably would go for others.
