    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.

    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..!

    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.

    Overall i like this fan. It does seem a bit loud unless its facing downward. Fortunately, this is how i use it so its not much of a bother. The speeds are named different things like "white noise" instead of "low, medium, high, etc". I am not sure if i actually notice that the fan really does anything different other than just speeds up.

    Basic fan does the trick. I was pleasantly surprised by this fan, as other pedestal fans have fallen flat and just seemed to push around hot air. However, this fan keeps the room pretty cool and is virtually quiet. Very low hum. I do not have to turn the TV volume on 100 to hear it while the fan is on its high setting. Would purchase again.

    I have three of these now, purchased over several years. The best thing about this fan is that it's quiet. That is also the downside- the fan doesn't go fast enough to really move a lot of air. It needs to be a couple inches larger in diameter and have at least one higher speed to be perfect.

    This fan is excellent. It is quite. It cools off you and the room even on the lowest setting. It is great quality itself. I love the sturdiness and black color. I even love it has a remote control. Only down side is it cost us 60$ plus tax for a standing fan. It is a bit pricey but we felt it was a good investment.

    Seems quiet except for small, intermittent squeak! Will disassemble, see if I can reassemble and hope it goes away. If not...back to Best Buy! We have last years model and it’s amazingly quiet. This is reason we bought this one. So gave good rating with hope that squeak disappears,

    It is a nice heavy duty fan that will hold up for years. It is quiet as stated but does not have the needed air flow hence the quiet appeal. So as long as it is not a brutally hot day it should have enough cooling affect for you. Great to use in a bedroom so you can sleep and not hear the roar of a fan all night.

    Honeywell fan is good product with nice features to control the air flow and it does cool the entire room when needed. The build quality is good overall with strong base but the fans mesh is very flimsy. Otherwise I would recommend this product for everyday use.

    It’s almost too quiet. It makes almost no noise. I use it in my room for white noise and to cool it off, for that purpose, it’s not worth it. As it’s too quiet to make it noisy. It blows well and the remote is nice. So it gets a good review, just wish it’s “white noise” setting was noisy.

    Only gave it 4 stars because I was looking for an oscillating fan to run on a switch. Did not realize this fan is digitally controlled so I can not leave it in an on position when switching on and off from another device. Other than that, easy to put together and a good looking well working fan.

    Most other fans i’ve had have been loud. This fan does live up to being ultra quiet. Easy assembly. The con I had was with the front, there is a bright light for the indicator of speed settings. It would be nice to have a way to not have that visible,

    I’ve always been a ‘fan’ of Honeywell and this is as good as the others. The only problem I have with this particular line is that it isn’t as quiet as the other Honeywell fan that I have. It’s still quiet compared to other brands.

    The fan is amazing, I love how quiet it is. I feel like even in the hottest of weather somehow the air blown is slightly cool. The major benefit is that I don't have to turn up my television, because I have zero fan noise. Worth the investment.

    Purchased this fan for my son's bedroom. As described, it is a very very quiet fan. It is made of plastic overall, but the base is metal and heavy. I do not foresee it tipping over. As others have stated, I do with it had a higher fan speed setting.

    I really have no issues with this fan. I purchased this model in July of 2017 and returned in September 2018 to buy another when my daughter requested a fan to replace another, older fan that was giving out.

    This fan works pretty well, it's not the best but it's still alright. It saved me on a really hot days and nights. That's basically all I need from a fan. So if you're looking to cool off in your room then this is what you need.

    This is a good fan for situations that call for low noise, e.g. watching television. Impressed with how quiet it is. The draw back to the quiet is that it does not move as much air as a louder fan, but still gets the job done.
