    Excellent Fan

    The air conditioner in my apartment broke very suddenly and they were unable to get a new one for a few days... in 90+ degree heat. I ran to my local Best Buy and picked this one up because it had a small footprint and was advertised as "quiet." Needless to say, this fan exceeded my expectations. It was able to cool my room in minutes and takes up less than a square foot of space. I am a light sleeper and this fan has multiple settings that are quiet enough that they do not bother me at night but still powerful enough that the entire room stays refreshingly cool. I was also surprised to see that this comes with a remote that lets you turn it on and off, adjust the rate of the fan, and lets you turn the oscillation on and off. Great product.

    Loved it at first but now not so much

    I purchased this fan about a month ago. I honestly loved it at first. It definitely doesn’t cool down a room as well as my other fans but I wanted something that was really quiet. I have the AC on all night so a light breeze is good enough for me. It worked great for a few weeks. On the first setting you don’t even notice it’s on because that’s how quiet it is. But I noticed in the last 3 days it now has this horrible whistling sound. I tried turning it up to see if it would fix it but you can still hear it. It’s driving me absolutely crazy. My once silent fan now sounds like nails on a chalkboard.

    I love this fan. It has 5 speeds and oscillation. It also comes with a handy remote. On the highest setting it blows really cold air without the loud noise of other fans. On the lower settings I can't even hear it at all. I do a lot of gaming and my old fan was always heard in the background and people would complain. This one nobody hears at all. There was some minor assembly required but nothing too difficult. My only issue is that the remote did not come with batteries. It takes 2 AAA's so make sure to have some on hand.

    Loud 'n Creaky

    For a fan entitled "Quietset" it is dang loud (faint buzzing from fan) and makes creaky sounds when oscillating. At a few of the speeds, it also vibrates on wooden floors. I have an older model of this fan than is WAYYY more quiet and since I needed a couple more fans for my kids rooms, I thought I'd give this one a try. Bought two and both are loud, so I know it's not just a manufacturing defect on one fan.

    It doesnt have much power at all and it really didn't circulate well because of this. I needed it to sleep while we didn't have ac and if it wasnt within 4 feet of me i couldnt feel any air at all i bought a 10 dollar clip on fan from walmart that has more power. As long as you were within the 4 ft range tho it was pretty decent just dont count on it helping a whole room.

    I had this fan for over 9 months now and I've had no issues. I bought 2 of these fans, one in black for the living room and the other one in white for my daughters bedroom to match the furniture's. This fan is quiet, sleek and slim looking. it allows you to set a timer for up to 8 hours and comes along with a small remote control. and finally it rotates at an approximate 90 degree which can cover a good size living room.

    I love this fan. Bought it for the bedroom and use it at night. It has 5 settings I use it on medium and creates plenty of air flow and the noise isn’t disturbing at all. I was considering a Dyson but it was just so hard to justify spending that much money! Great purchase I definitely recommend it.

    Worth the value compared to other fans in the same price range. It's quite at it's highest settings, the swivel moves at a gradual pace and the remote is a plus if you don't want to get up and change the settings. The design is well and slim, not bulky and intrusive like other ones that rival it. I actually have 2 of these, white and black but to be fair, I got both of them below the retail price.

    I have another honeywell tower at my place and it is not as noisy as this one. I got this on sale and it works great cooling down the area that it is in but the noise can get annoying. Luckily I have it in my living room where I turn on my surround sound so the noise is drowned out. Next time I will look for a much quieter tower.

    Good tower fan

    The tower fan is quite and has good speed settings. The only reason I am reducing one star is that it does not have a setting to change the angle of the airflow. If you are sitting on a sofa, you are at level with the airflow, however if you are sitting down, you will not feel the full force of the fan. Otherwise it is a good quite fan. Requires less storage space.

    Works as expected! Great option at this pricepoint. Another good thing about this fan is you have an option of getting White or Black. If you’re shopping in store, get this over the static Vornado. For online shoppers, consider Lasko fans. I have 2 other Lasko oscillating tower fans and they’re great.

    Seems ok but could have stronger output. Has 5 speeds, thought that would be enough. Had I of known, would have paid 5 bucks more for the other model. Other model said it had 7 levels of quiet or sound, Wasn't clear to me it was referencing force of fan. Buy the "other"one, and not the one I am stuck with.

    I'm kind of sad for this purchase, it just doesn't have the cooling power needed. Even blowing on max setting - barely produces a noticeable breeze. It does not cool down the bedroom, which is much needed. Needless to say, not getting much rest. I really wish I knew that it wasn't that powerful, I would have gotten a different fan.

    I need a modern fan very badly, this product produced such a weak air flow we could not believe it how weak it was for the price. An average desk fan would produce more of a cooling effect. If I held a cardboard fan in my hand and fanned myself it would be better than this one.

    I purchased this fan to place in my children’s room so they could have a cool room at night. This fan is great. It’s pretty quiet and you there are different fan speed which is great. So if they want to use it in the day at a higher speed, they can change it to a different speed as well

    If you are looking for a fan that is a powerhouse, large area cooling then this is not the one. You want a fan for bedroom that is quiet but can still make a difference but won't make noises that keep you up. This is it. This is my second time buying this unit. The remote is a nice added feature.

    This was a great purchase. The fan isn't very loud and puts out a lot of cool air. If you need to sleep in complete darkness and want to use this in a bedroom, be warned the light on top is bright. It doesn't bother me at all, but I don't like pitch black for sleeping.

    I wanted a fan to have at night when the AC runs less just to keep the air moving, and it had to be quiet....this worked for me....I can fall asleep and and not feel hot....I would have given 5 stars, but I like to sleep in total darkness, so I cover up the light , I would buy again

    I purchased this tower fan after reviewing others. We needed something to supplement the AC cooling in our living room. The tower fan fit perfect in the corner and provides a good breeze. The remote is a life saver. I wish it had a little more power, otherwise I'm very satisfied.

    air in room did not feel any better

    This was not a large room by any means, in fact it is only about 10x10. I could not really feel the air flow when laying in bed on the other side of the room. I didn't feel as if was moving the air around sufficiently to help with feeling that the air in the room was stale.
