    This is good one comes with remote. Outstanding! Mrs. Wingnut needs a fan blowing on her at night to sleep well. No, the ceiling fan on high isn't enough. We were using existing fans we owned, but both of them died recently. Both were around fifteen years old or older. We had never used a tower fan such as this design, but were willing to take a chance. Eight speeds! VERY quiet at lower speeds, yet still not as loud as the old nine inch diameter fans were at the highest speed. The bright blue power light on top of this model is indeed dimmable and can be turned off while the fan is running. You can choose to oscillate or not. For Mrs. Wingnut's sleeping purposes, this fan gets set to highest speed and the power light turned off. One thing we hadn't anticipated that is a big plus - we had to use a small table to elevate the old fans high enough off the floor. The base already elevates this thing a bit and the rest of the height takes it up high enough for her needs. Awesome! Small footprint!!!

    Better than the Vornado

    I originally bought a Vornado, thinking it would oscillate, but then was disappointed when it couldn't provide a good source of fan power, even with it "twisting" the air in the room. I ended up getting the Honeywell. The features on it are great, I love the many different fan speeds. I also like the 'calm' and 'sleep' modes for when I'm wanting a good nap. It's easy to set up compared to the Vordado which required me to pull out my screwdriver. The Honeywell fan pretty much has a snap and twist in piece for the base, but it's pretty sturdy. The fan can fill the whole room with cold air fairly quickly, and is good for bedrooms or small to medium living spaces. It does everything I wanted it to do, and more. Would highly recommend this to anyone because of it's speeds and because it oscillates.

    Price is a bargain, too. Easy to assemble and very quiet, at the ‘Relax’ setting (there are 3 speeds higher than that). Fan creates a breeze that goes 16 feet plus in non-oscillation mode (i.e. a fixed position). Metered the sound levels for you ... my room with fan off is 34 decibels and with fan on highest ‘Power Cool’ level measured at 10 feet away the noise was 48 decibels. Super quiet fan. This fan only adds 5 decibels of sound at my favorite setting which is the ‘Relax’ setting. Slightly higher noise level in oscillating mode. Easily works in all indoor applications from bedroom to family room. Built in timer for 2, 4, 6 or 8 hours and the control are simple to use. Remote works well with three buttons ... On/Off, Speed and Oscillate. Remote is Infrared so it needs to "see" the fan's control panel to be used. Overall, very nice fan. I would recommend it.

    Had a Holmes Tower Fan that unbelievably lasted 16 years under hard use. Finally the motor went, and after some brand, and consumer reviews decided to go with this Honeywell QuietSet. Lower settings are indeed quiet. As speed is increased so does the "noise." This fan is effective at cooling our bedroom of 16x14 on the highest settings; and competent at providing sufficient air movement around the king bed area during sleep on the lower, quieter settings. Smooth oscillation when needed at approximately 90 degrees. The remote is limited in function, and distance; but a nice feature to have. Well designed overall. Solenoid controls, so non-mechanical wear is a plus hopefully for longevity. The front panel is well lit, and brightness is adjustable. Price matched, and excellent BEST BUY Customer Service to top it off.

    I always read the reviews before making a purchase. Based upon the reviews I purchased this fan with high expectations. Well my expectations were quickly disappointed. The first three weeks it worked good. Then the power of the fan weakened. You couldn't feel cool unless you were sitting right next to it. Design wise though it's pretty cool and stylish. I do have a cheaper 16 inch Lasko standing fan that exceeds the performance of the high priced stylish honeywell. Wish I could have returned the Honeywell but I threw out the box and could not return it. Considering also the time of the purchase that had surpassed. I don't want anyone else to waste there money or time. I definitely would not recommend this fan to anyone.

    one issue

    Just got fan and assembled it with no problem. Like the settings and the fact that it can be very quiet. It has a light diming feature which I don't feel is really necessary. My issue is that the timer feature cannot be controlled by the remote. Since I now have private summers at night, I would like to be able to reach over on my night stand and set the timer for the fan to go off without getting out of bed to do so and if you set timer before getting into bed, if fan does go off and you want to reset timer, you have to get up again. Yes you can turn it on/off by remote but why not be able to set the timer by remote. I wonder if it is worth returning for lack of this feature. Other than the remote not having the timer on it, it is otherwise a good fan. Hence 4 stars rather than 5. It would be nice if they would issue a new remote with the timer on it without having to buy another fan.

    Quiet and Comfortable for Southern CA

    During recent warm summer nights in LA, this fan has made a huge difference in keeping things comfortable, even at the lowest cooling level where it is nearly whisper quiet. I couldn't imagine sleeping without it, especially as it really helps move air when the humidity level stays high early in the evening and the room gets pretty stuffy. My bedroom is a decent size (about 13x18) and the fan works great. I like its thin, lightweight footprint and it easily stays out of the way. The included remote is nice, but I wish it would let you move up and down, instead of only up as you cycle through the cooling levels.

    The settings have a great range, from whisper to where it feels like a gentle breeze for when your sleeping to power cool which works even better than the ac on those hot days. The only reason why I am rating this a 4 is because for whatever reason the first few months when I would put it on oscillate, it would have this really bad squeaking noise to the point it would wake you up at night. The odd part is that it was random when it would squeak. It could be fine being on for a few hours then suddenly it would squeak like crazy.

    Great Quiet Fan

    This is a terrific fan if you like a lot of settings. It's very quiet on the lower settings and not too loud on the highest. The remote that we got no longer seems to be working, and we've only had it for a month. Also, the remote is very basic and generic. It doesn't have an option to use the timer, so if you wanted it to turn off while you were sleeping, you'll have to manually set it prior to going to sleep. Otherwise prepare to get out of bed in the middle of the night if you want it off. Otherwise a great fan, does a fantastic job in cooling down a room.

    I bought two of these a year ago when my A/C went out in the middle of summer. I was stuck for 3 days without any A/C and a poor dog who was melting on the floor! These worked great to keep my place as cool as could be in the summer Texas heat and was powerful enough to keep me from having a restless sleep at night. I have used these for a year and they are still as good as when I first got them. I liked it so much, I even bought a 3rd one a few months ago for a friend needing a little extra cooling at night.

    Great fan for a midsize room! IMO it is superior to the classic big fans because its size (tall and skinny) Don't get me wrong this wont help much on the superhot and humidity days if you dont have AC installed in the room but it works superb along with the AC blowing either in your window or central AC. Quiet in sleep mode and gives you a delicate breeze. Oscillating speed is perfect! You dont need a faster oscillation, this tower fan has it at the perfect speed so no complaints here at all. I will buy one more for sure before next summer!! Five star rating!!

    A/C went down this summer and needed a quick and easy way to cool down whichever room we were in temporarily while we waited for a repairman to come. Due to the advertisement of "cooling options" and "temperature settings", we purchased two fans. Figured out pretty fast in a 90 degree household that it really didn't have any kind of cooling options or temperature settings. It just blew hot air everywhere and we were absolutely miserable. Needless to say, very misleading advertisement. I'm sure they would be great if the room was already cold.

      We appreciate you sharing your feedback. This unit is a fan; it is not an air conditioner. This unit will not push cooler air into the room to lower the temperature; it will circulate the air that is already in your room. We have made note of you comments and passed it along.

    Bad Buy @ Best Buy

    Not very pleased. It has 8 fan settings. One is fairly quite. ALL of the rest the fan is quite BUT it vibrates through the floor. Sounds like a truck with a flat tire. Weird thing is the speed that doesn't do this is the middle setting. All started after three weeks. Also the fan has a bright function LED light that you can turn off after setting it ONLY on the unit not the remote. BUT every time you change anything the LED comes on full bright. Since you can't turn it off with the remote it makes the remote useless.Change the speed @ 2am and you're getting up unless you like a bride blue bedroom.

    I got this one and tried a couple of days. It really cools down the room and it wont occupy much space and setup is super easy. But coming to the cons, you wont feel much breeze if it is little far from your bed even at high speed setting. Also, the height is a problem for me since my bed little high wont worked out for me. This one is for who wants less airflow with lower bed height with good cooling options and some good white noise.

    Has 8 settings but honestly seems like 4. The last 3 sound and act exactly the same and there’s a couple in the middle that are the same as well. The remote is IR so it has to be pointed directly at it in order for it to work which is annoying and the worst part is the remote does not have a button for the light which is very bright, so if you want to turn off the light you have to do it on the fan itself, totally defeating the purpose the remote.

    Been using it without any issues for over a month now. I was hesitant at first because of the price, but wanted to see if that does equate to better equipment. Time will tell. It can be quiet and still provide really good air flow, which really surprised me. The sleep & whisper levels provide decent air when I am watching TV and the fan noise doesn't get in the way. When I go to sleep, I crank it all the way up. Yeah, you can hear it, but it isn't obnoxiously loud at all. I pretty much keep it turned up to "Power Cool" all day, every day.

    Great fan. Only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars is that it makes an annoying sound on the lowest setting. But you're not getting much air on the lowest setting anyway especially in a large room so its no big deal. Love the remote control feature. Can cool down my room for a little bit while in bed and then shut it off if I want without having to get up. Its a little pricey but I had a gift card. Does not take up much space and its not an eye sore.

    Not a bad fun for space savings or aesthetics

    It does what is meant to do, it blows air. I was hoping it was quieter. For being called silent when is set to high I can hear the fun motor from the adjacent room. The other thing is the remote control works of it's no too far and in direct sight of the IR receptor. Some times I get tired of playing with the remote and just walk to the unit. The only reason I'd buy something like it again is for the space savings and the aesthetics, otherwise the pedestal ones would serve the same purpose for half the cost.

    I purchased tower fan during heat wave in California. Best Buy stores were all sold out. It was easy to order online and arrived in a couple days no charge for delivery. I t was simple to assemble and will cool me when I set it up next to me while I watch tv or work on computer. it's light and easy to move around but no wheels. It will not cool room but does just fine for one person to use. It feels a little cooler than traditional fan so works for me.

    I love the different fan settings for falling asleep, if you need white noise to fall asleep I definitely recommend this, however even the strongest setting is not very forceful air. This fan does a good job at cooling down a somewhat small room, but the air pushed out is not very strong or cold if you're looking for something to cool your house down. I'm giving 3 stars because for the price the fan should be stronger in my opinion.
