    Great quiet fan

    I bought this fan to help move around central air-conditioning air in our bedroom and hallway. We've been running it on low which works well because of the large fan size (16 inches) and is so quiet it is difficult to tell if it's on. Obviously, at higher settings there will be more sound, but at the low setting it's remarkable. The fan has some very nice features. Different shades of blue soft lighting on the control panel indicates fan speed, there's a remote to control speed and power, and, my favorite, the fan comes apart easily for cleaning . By that, I mean both the front and back of the fan screen easily come off the motor, the fan blade itself completely separates from the shaft with just a plastic screw-on cap (reverse thread) and can be dusted or washed as needed. Some minor complaints: The fan can be raised and lowered on its support shaft by lifting the upper part and and locking it in place by rotating the upper shaft about a half turn to the right. Unfortunately, if you want to move the fan head to the left, you can easily unlock that setting and the fan will sink down the shaft. This is just a short distance from full height (42 inches) to its lowest height (32 inches) and it slides down slowly. By just lifting the fan to rotate it, this problem can be solved. One other point: the fan cage can have a slight rattle when its operating. I put a small clip on the top and bottom edge of the fan cage which stopped the vibration completely. Overall a great fan.

    Amazing fan!!

    I just don't understand any of the negative reviews saying the fan doesn't move enough air. It's not be sold / advertised as a "power fan", but rather as an ultra quiet fan... and that's exactly what it is! For scenarios where quiet operation are essential (bedrooms, living rooms while watching a movie, etc), this fan fits the bill wonderfully. On the lowest setting, it's literally silent. Almost eerily silent! Even on the highest setting - it's a very mild hum... nothing loud or obnoxious. In terms of air being moved - I find it to move plenty on the highest setting for our needs (bedroom), but our Lasko fan definitely moves more. That Lasko fan is significantly louder however... even at it's lowest setting its louder than this Honeywell at its highest. The pedestal on this fan is also something to note... it's quite a bit smaller and heavier than competing brands (like my Lakso). This lends to a much more "planted" feeling and less likely to tip over (important when young kids are involved). Overall - I HIGHLY recommend this fan. If you need a "power fan" - buy a power fan... if you need a standard fan to provide circulation without raising the noise level - this fan is 100% for you!

    Super Quiet Fan

    This is the newest version of Honeywell's Pedestal Fan. I also have the older version and reviewed it here earlier. They may have made this fan even quieter. It was very quiet at the lowest speeds but now you can not hear it even at top speeds. They have improved the base making it heavier and more stable. The only reason I have given the fan 4 out of 5 stars is because they have removed the handle and complicated the height adjuster. Now instead of a threaded knob to tighten when you adjust the height they built in the adjustment - pneumatic I believe. It takes a bit to get used to it. But the worst change was removing the wire handle on the fan blade cage. So instead of just single-handedly moving it you must use two hands - often causing the need to readjust the height.

    It makes crackling noise when rotating

    This fan is not as strong to move air. However, that is not my issue with this fan. Within less than 5 days of use, this fan is quiet alright when it is set to the fixed mode; but when it is in rotating mode it makes rustling or crackling noise when the plastic of the head rubs on the plastic of the support mechanism during rotation. For people who get bothered by a dripping faucet or loud clock ticking, this sound falls into that category. Imagine the crackling noise at 20~30 seconds interval, for me that was irritating. The sturdiness of the structural design is good; it is heavy and solid. But the rotating design and technology fall short of being good. Other alternative is the Honeywell 1655, which is much quieter. That could be coupled by the strong Honeywell Double Blade Pedestal Fan to move a large quantity of air.

    The fan works great and is very quite. The wireless controls are a nice convenience too. I have only two issues the first being that the fan stand is a little shorter than it looks in the picture. Yes its adjustable but it does not go up that high. Second, the pivot on the actual fan is really weak meaning it always falls down and the fan aims low, you tilt it up and its okay as long as you don't bump the fan otherwise it will drop down. Other than that I really like the fan. :-). The only thing keeping this from 4 stars is that Pivot. It would be nice is it would lock into place. I ended up having to place the fan on a box to get the appropriate height needed.

    Shame on Honeywell!

    This was a last minute Best Buy run. My Co-Op holds heat and our central air system had already adjusted for colder months. With that being said, I purchased this fan without reading reviews and the manufacturer name... BIG MISTAKE! This unit is not only a waste of money (which by the way was WAAAAAYY over priced) and space, but the description of it's power is delusional. The fan, on it's highest setting, makes you wanna laugh. It gives no real relief towards cooling down. Wish I could have returned it that day, but our young son needed it for his bedroom. Really rethinking the manufacturer all together!

    Worth the money! Soooo silent on the low settings. For the size of the blades, the air force is exceptional! Only complaint is every now and then there’s a rattle when you increase the speed, but with a slight tap it goes away. Remote is always helpful to have so you don’t have to climb out of bed or whatever when it’s cold! :) Overall would recommend. Bought the Best Buy insurance deal for $11.99 too as I read the fan doesn’t last too long..will save having to deal with the actual company..!

    Pros: Quiet with good air flow. Cons: Odd shape for a remote. The slots on the back of the fan blade could be deeper. I'm afraid they'll slip out. I'm wondering if that's how they all are. I will file it down and take a star away if not. For the negative reviews... -It comes with a 1 year manufacturer warranty (for those complaining within that time frame). -Check the fuse in the plug if it doesn't work anymore. See picture.

    Purchased this fan back in June 2017 and I'm now filing my 2ND warranty claim with Honeywell (Kaz.com) as the first fan stop working and now the replacement fan they sent alsp stop working 2days ago. Fortunately for me the replacement fan is just 3day OVER the extended warranty and will send me a courtesy replacement fan BUT w/o further warranty. So if the 3rd fan stops working, I'm on my own. I would suggest to get the BestBuy protection plan/warranty, getting a replacement...should the fan stop working will make the exchange much easier.

    More than i would normally spend on a fan, but worth every penny. I was trying to cool my desk in an open warehouse area. It works really well. If you need a fan for white noise, there is a setting for that. But, I found that even at the fastest setting it moves a lot of air while remaining nearly silent. The remoste is a nice touch - it also has a timer, so if you are using it in the bedroom, you can set it to shut off automatically. Set up out of the box took about five minutes. Well done. Highly recommend it.

    First the positives: it is very quiet on high and it was relatively inexpensive when I bought it on deal of the day. Now the negatives: it is relatively quiet because it doesn't push that much air, even on high. The fan head only tilts down and not up, that's bad because the vertical stand adjustment is only about six inches. Therefore, overall the fan is simply too short. I'm sure the remote control would come in handy for many people but I don't use it very often. I will probably buy another fan with a larger fan blade that tilts upward.

    Had had a similar Honeywell that I purchased several years back. I love the fact that it offers several levels of coolness and quietness. The newer model has a locking mechanism to adjust levels of height. You have to be careful with this one if you have any kids because it's a simple twist and the fan drops down to a lower tier. Outside of that the fan has excellent range from soft to a nice powerful blow. For a $50 Buck purchase I feel like I got my money's worth out of it.

    This fan does exactly what the advertisement says it does; it cools with a press of a button from either a couch, a bed or a lounging chair and is very quiet. Assembly is super easy and quality appears long lasting. My only disappointment would be that the remote doesn’t come with batteries and the steel foot is huge and heavy. So when you move around the fan, you need strength and balance as to not fall or trip while transporting it places.

    I didn't bother with an extended service plan based on the Honeywell name and the fct that it was only $59.00. I've had it LESS THAN A YEAR and it has quit working completely. I cleaned the fan blades regularly and used the cans of compressed air to keep dust out of the motor. Will never buy another Honeywell product again! I would have been better off buying a cheap fan at Walmart that would probably last ten years.

    I bought this fan for supplement to A/C. It works great and is very quiet. I use it a night in the bedroom. The timer feature is fantastic. I can select a one-hour or two-hour, three-hour or four-hour time period and the fan auto shuts off. On the lowest setting, when the fan is at the end of the bed, I can barely hear it and it does not interrupt sleep at all. It is just what I wanted to move the humid air that settles during the night hours.

    Purchased this little over a month ago and it stop working already. I can hear it humming when the power is on but the fan is not spinning unless I remove the cover and manually spin the fan. Called Kaz the warranty company for Honeywell and advised me that it may take up to 4 weeks before I get my "repaired" fan back. Try returning it back to BestBuy but they won't take it since it passed the 30day return period.

    The fan was as displayed on the website - a black floor fan with a remote. What the picture didn't convey: it's actually a very pretty fan. What pleasantly surprised me: it was very easy to assemble; it is almost completely silent; the highest speed is far more powerful than the silent operation would lead you to believe. Love the fan. It's on ALL THE TIME even when it's cool - I need the moving air to feel comfortable.

    I need a fan when I sleep - the combination of airflow & "white noise" is a must. This fan does the trick. Keeps me cool, even if it's not as loud as my previous fan. The remote control is a nice feature, too. Simple 3-button layout - power, output level, timer. My only complaint would be the battery cover pops off way too easily. My last Honeywell fan lasted nearly 10 years and I hope this one has the same longevity.

    Nothing like beating the heat as my little girl and lady wanted a fan so they can cool off because the apartment we live in has a central air that blows out hot warm air when we set the thermostat to say, "Neptune"! So I bought this fan and with the speeds and remote control, it is so quiet i dont even notice it when i go to sleep. We are all happy, and all is right with the world, well in the bedroom. Would recommend!

    Looks sharp, extremely quiet. You can't even tell it's on. Unfortunately you can't tell by the airflow either. Lots of bells and whistles but nothing that makes it blow any stronger. Would be perfect if you just wanted something quiet to circulate air. Don't bother if you're trying to cool, I don't even bother turning it on. On or off same effect on the cooling front. Way too much money for what it does.
