    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!!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    This fan is great for helping to keep a room cool over longer periods of time. One word of caution - the oscillating feature works very well, but the natural vibrations it causes makes the fan stand casing loosen (which in turn creates some odd sounds). It is fixed easily (just tighten the fasteners), but can be unsettling if used over night.

    This product works well, although the air output isn't the best I have ever had. It also makes a whistling sound which often wakes me up at night. My husband likes this though, and it isn't bad overall just isn't the best fan I've ever had. We do like that it has a remote, and has many settings. As I mentioned though the high setting doesn't seem all that "high" to me.

    Efficient fan, but louder than I thought

    For the value, I love this fan. It does a good job of cooling off the room, especially with the oscillating feature. However, the fan is louder than I thought. We had the fan in the den, and we had to turn up the volume of the TV with the setting at Refresh (this setting is the 3rd setting from the top). Cool and Super Cool are the top 2 settings and they are louder. In our bedroom, we put it on the Cool setting and that's perfect for sleeping at night.

    I was looking for help cooling my living room in an older home where ac doesnt reach as well. Fan is very quiet in all modes. Ive had it for a couple weeks now. Works great. Easy set up. Looks nice and doesnt take up much space. Only downside is i thought the highest setting would have a little more power to it. Although works nice, i wouldnt mind it being a little stronger. But you give up some strength in cooling ability for less noise. Dont regret the purchase

    Nice Looking - Quiet - Not Super Powerful

    this fan looks nice, is definitely quieter than cheaper fans, but it is not as strong as i thought it would be. i have it set up in a new spot by my computer chair, like one foot from me. obviously that distance is plenty windy enough, but this is not a fan to use for a large room, and if you have it like 10 feet away youre probably going to have it on one of the highest settings, which isnt loud, but every level it goes up it gets louder.

    Overall satisfied with this fan. Not sure eight different fan settings is necessary but they are there if you need them. I find myself only using 3 or 4 of them . The fan is supposed to be quiet but has had a squeaking noise at times (sometimes very noisy), like something is misaligned. I deal with this, when it happens by tweaking the fan and base a little.

    I really enjoy this fan for my bedroom. It has many speed options. I mostly use it on the lowest speed which is perfect for sleeping, but even on the lowest speed it keeps my room pretty cool. The only downer is the price I paid. Walmart has Honeywell fans that are cheaper also, but I opted to go with this one because there are more speed options and it's quieter than the models at Walmart.

    Fairly quiet operation. Elegant and easy to use. Only issue is that even on high it doesn't really push air very strongly. Bought as a gift for family member, utilizing store credit/points. Don't think I would ever pay full price for it, as it's pretty expensive for a fan.

    I was looking for a fan that did not have exposed blades and stumbled upon this fan. It has many settings and while this version is slightly more than the other, it is worth it. The feature that turns the led light off is great. Also, it does go to high speed when it is started up, but don't worry it will quickly return to your previous setting.

    Got this to circulate air (which significantly improves AC comfort levels). . Even at high speeds fan is reasonably quiet. Air flow can be nicely "focused" to where you want it (I don't generally use the oscillating function, but it works well). Only gripe is that it doesn't remember speed setting if power is disrupted. I'm very happy with this purchase.

    I love everything about the fan except the irritating blue light that comes on every time you change the setting. The remote is useless because you have to get up and turn the light off on the fan itself. The light on the five speed model goes off automatically. It should also go off automatically on the 8 speed.

    Pros: different settings allow you to adjust to whatever is comfortable for you. The light on the fan is adjustable and you can dim it if you are a light sensitive person. The remote small and very easy to use. Cons: some setting make a louder humming or vibration sound. We have hardwood so I'm not sure if it would be different on carpet.

    I bought this after the older model quit on me. This fan is truly quiet (not very powerful but great for me), but the buttons on top can rattle. Just tape them down and use the remote if you have this problem. I've tried a few other fans and they weren't as quiet as this one.
