    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    Staying Cool in the Hot Winter and Spring

    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!

    I purchased this fan to provide fresh air flow to 2nd floor from a window. With this fan I don't have to place it on something tall so it will be at window height. It has worked very well and I consider it a good buy. The only drawback is everything is plastic so I wouldn't put it somewhere where it might get knocked around.

    This is a really good quality fan for the price. Good air flow and the oscillating feature works wonderfully. We use it everyday in the summer. Great in a room or at work for air movement. Really helps in minimizing using an air conditioner. Beautiful fan!

    Bought it cause I never get cold enough and I turn this up to the MAX and it’s super quiet. The air pressure feels great and the remote control is a better feature to make me lazier. But really I have 0 complaints with this fan. Why not keep it on the 5th level when it’s so quiet. Beautiful.

    I have no a/c, so I finally broke down and bought this fan for my bedroom. It was fairly easy to assemble, and I like that it's got a good remote control, with an on/off, selection of fan speeds and a timer. I'm very happy with it, and I don't miss having a/c now.

    Bought this for my bedroom as it came with both a remote and the promise of silence. Rattly, noisy fans in the bedroom are very annoying. Luckily, this one is dead quiet and works perfectly. Excellent!

    Five whisper-quiet speeds deliver comforting winds. With a fully adjustable height, optional oscillation, a timer that can be set to automatically turn off after 1, 2, 4 or 8 hours and a super-handy remote control, this is a great fan for the great room or any other room in your home.

    Was told by the Best Buy rep that it worked great and it was extremely quiet. She wasn’t kidding. Even at its highest fan speed it is extremely quiet while still incredibly effective. So good that I bought another one a month later.

    Have purchased these fans when needed over past 10 years. Use all year and they last 2 to 3 years. These latest ones have an even heavier base for stability. So far these are the quietest fans I have used. Use one in the bedroom.

    This was an impulse buy on the way out the door. Price seemed right and did not research 1st as Brand Recognition was immediate. Nice replacement to the Rowenta that for some reason, would stop working periodically. Has not happened and is even quieter than the Rowenta,

    This fan has multiple settings, different time settings as well; it's quiet, it rotates if that's the setting you wish or also has a stationary setting. Something for everyone.

    Our air went out and we purchased a variety of fans as to what we had room for and what each person style wanted in the house and room.... many of them let us down but not this one. We LOVE this one. This will be one we keep and repurchase
