    Dumbed down performance

    Posted
    FlyingPig

    The predecessor had much higher output, at the cost of more electrons, and more blade noise. The new box trumpeted how it was 20% quieter and more efficient. Easily done. Derate the motor, so that it won't turn as fast or have the same draw. Except when you buy a fan because you're soaked in sweat, a reduction in noise doesn't nearly compensate for the reduction in cooling. Meanwhile, despite disassembly and cleaning (access is reasonable for anyone with a minimal toolkit), it took more and more time to start up, and, not long into its life, would not start. Which was the same result we had with the first. But the first had all that power - 25% more, after you do the inversion (20% reduction reversed requires 25% increase) - to move air. Because it's cheap, it doesn't rate in cubic feet per minute (CFM) - but if you were to compare this with its exact-look predecessor, I'm betting you'd find more than a 25% reduction. Of course, since it doesn't give you the CFM, it also doesn't give you the watts. So, ignorant of either how much it will suck down the batteries we use to make our 120VAC power, or the huff-and-puff-and-blow-your-house-down it will deliver, we took it home, expecting the same thing as we had before, but quieter blades due to some wizardry in design (submarines go to great length to quieten their propellors; why not table fans???). Nope. Sorry. Not as much as on "two" on the old one, for "3" on the new one, and no way to ramp it up. Despite that, as that's all that's available, and CFM info isn't generally available for this sort of thing, we'll replace it with the same thing and continue to sweat, with more of it remaining liquid than we'd like. The good news is that you'll have to work hard to not get change from a sawbuck.

    A Decent Breeze For The Price

    I wanted a small, cheap fan for my bedroom to tide me over before I put my air conditioner in next month and this worked PERFECTLY. I have it about 4 feet away from my bed and even on low, I get an unexpectedly nice breeze. I also find it to be relatively quiet and had no problem sleeping with it even on its highest setting (although light noise does not normally affect my sleep). You can manually change the position of the fan and my only gripe is that you cannot point it downward. At its lowest point, it only can be pointed straight-forward and from there you can keep angling it until it is pointing straight up. I had hoped to have it pointing downward towards my bed from a shelf, but that isn't possible. It's a small gripe and not worth docking a star over, but something to be aware of in case you might have had the same idea for it. Overall, I'm really happy with it -- especially considering the price I paid. I didn't expect a windstorm from a fifteen buck fan, but it certainly puts out a decent amount of air for its size.

    Decent Fan

    I bought the fan to bring with me on a trip to Europe. I figured it would come in handy in our hotel and cruise ship, as I sleep with a ceiling fan and floor fan at home. I found the highest speed to be a bit underwhelming for what I thought it would output for the fans size. It was very quiet, which I also wasn't a fan of. I like the sound of the fan when sleeping. Unfortunately I didn't get much use out of it, because when I plugged it in in Czech using a Euro adapter, I could smell a burning smell. I proceeded to turn it off, think it was the fan or adapter. When we reached our cruise ship that had the regular North American power plugs, the fan wouldn't come on so something got fried in the hotel room. It's only use was at the airport in USA after a long walk from one terminal to another which was on a hot day and involved being outside for part of the adventure on our flight over. I ended up tossing it in the trash when it wouldn't turn back on. I'll likely get another model for the next fan for future trips.

    This fan is quiet like the other reviewers say it is, and it does produce sufficient air output for its size. I have the previous version (Model HT-800), and it is louder than this new version (Model HT-900). I have owned and used the previous version for at least two years. Age and use could have cause the previous version to become louder over time. Both fans produce sufficient amount of air for their sizes. I plan to keep and use both. The loudness of the old model does not bother me. In fact, it produces a sound that is good at blocking or diminishing outside noises which result in better sleep for me. I do not used the new model for this purpose. (Do what ever works for you.) I do recommend the new model for its quietness and sufficient air output.

    I was drawn to this fan because it advertised turbo super fast and for $15 I couldn't go wrong. When I got it home and tried it out I kept looking at the swish thinking it was on low since it wasn't going very fast. Surprisingly it was on high but wasn't giving out my chair so I do have to say I was disappointed in that sale tactic but it's not Best Buy's fault by any means . It is a compact design and is pretty quiet so it does work well it's just missing that turbo vortex that I was expecting but I kept it anyways it'll be good for warm days .

    Nice air circulator for a small room

    Honeywell uses the classic "Vornado" brand design for this small floor fan. It moves room air efficiently. However, this is not a quiet fan like the Dyson blade-less fans. It's not what I would call "loud" either, but it generates just enough white noise to help you get to sleep. The air circulation keeps room temperatures even, further aiding in getting to sleep. While smaller than its bigger Honeywell brother, it gets the job done. Highly recommended.

    Not much to say about a fan other than it blows properly or not...This Honeywell does a great job at getting air around the room properly and effiecently and quietly. This fan is replacing the same model that I had previously purchased at a garage sale, Ive had it for about 3 or so years, before it died but I truthfully don't know how old it is. I use this fan at night to replace the a/c , keep it at the end of my bed, keeps me and my partner comfy in the eve hours. the first 2 settings are quiet the 3rd is a bit louder but tolerable. I highly recommend this too anyone that wants a quality fan. That blows well.

    I purchased this fan because we needed air circulation in a room with pets. The pets were knocking over fans that were on the floor and blocking air flow. We needed a wall-mount fan to assist in air from the air conditioner to a loft. This is the perfect fan. It will mount on the wall and is directional. It has excellent air speed and flow and is not as expensive as many other wall mount fans, but does the job very well. If you have someone who is bedridden who needs direct flow, I would highly suggest this fan. It is very quiet for a fan with this much power!

    I have purchased this product numerous times for friends and family. It served as my best friend when living in a dorm with no air conditioner, it served me well in my office during hot days, and it serves my family's living room as well! It has two speeds (high and low) and an oscillating feature. You can also adjust the fan up and down so that it can be positioned in a way to fit your needs. I have never had one give out on me and have had one for at least 5 years of continuous use... love this product!!

    I use this fan every day at the office. It keeps me from developing serious pit stains or other heat-induced sweat problems. It does add a bit of noise to your work environment, and that's the reason for 4 and not 5 stars. Luckily, you can adjust the fan speed, but I also had to experiment with the direction of the fan to get it to be completely absent in my phone calls. This might not be an issue if you put it on the floor, but I prefer it on my desk. Pros: affordable, good performance Cons: adds (a somewhat minor amount of) noise to your work environment

    A Viable/Economical Cooling Solution

    I only recently purchased this but felt the need to write a review because thus far I am pleased and would recommend starting here before spending more on something else. This fan features a plug-fuse (safety feature), 3 speed settings and the ability to tilt the fan for optimal circulation. The fan itself feels well-constructed, has a built-in stand and should be ideal for a small or maybe even a medium size room. There is also a handle hidden in the back near the speed dial.

    This little thing is perfect! It moves a lot of air and is fairly quite on the lowest setting. It is a little loud on the highest setting. It's not bother some to me though as I use it mainly at work and its quite noisy here. 80% of the time I use on the lowest setting and that is enough. If I need to move some air around and cool my room I flip it on high and within 10 mins I get the cooler moving into this room. For those that want it to use at night while sleeping, the low setting is adequate enough and provides good white noise and not atrociously loud.

    This is a good, 110v fan with three speed settings. #1 is quite low and #2 & #3 are very similar at a higher speed. I happen to have mine hooked up to a WEMO Mini switch and it works great. The on off switch is a simple old-fashioned mechanical switch. It does not revert to off if the power goes off. Very handy for operating the fan without having to walk over to it.

    I purchased this fan for my cube at work because I am sensitive to chemicals in fragrances from perfumes, body oils, etc. Many women in my office insist on bathing in their favorite fragrances in the morning and then they come into work, reeking. Hence, there's a war of odors all around me. This little fan is wonderful in keeping the air in my cube clean and clear of hovering offensive smells. It's quiet, but is amazingly powerful. I'm very happy with my purchase and I recommend this product..

    I bought this fan specifically to use bedside when I go to sleep. It provides ambient noise (certainly quieter than most fans) but enough to break dead silence. The fan works great, providing plenty of air to keep you cool. Of the 3 settings, I always have mine running on 2 or 3. Setting one would be good for the office, but not enough for my liking going to sleep. Well worth the money.

    I am so happy that I purchased this fan. I don't have much room for a large fan so I decided to try this small one. Boy I can't believe how powerful this small fan actually is, plus you don't even hear it while it's on. I would highly recommend this fan to anyone that is looking for a powerful fan that is small, quiet and did I mention powerful!!!

    When it comes to fans I tend to always get Honeywell because they are not only more powerful, but more quiet too. They can cost more but its worth the price. This current one I use to cool down my Xbox One since we don't use our AC alot. Its quiet enough even on high that it doesn't disturb me when I play. And its also good for in a bedroom or other places where you want a good breeze, but nothing super crazy that bigger fans can do.

    My husband loves this fan. It is small enough to be portable, yet powerful enough to do the job. He sometimes get hot during the night, as he is diabetic. When we travel, we carry this fan with us. Had an earlier model for over 10 years. It was inadvertedly dropped:( Therefore, I bought this one to replace the other-thinking it was identical. We were surprised. It is much more powerful. But most of all, it is WISPER quiet. Would highly recommend!

    I bought this fan to keep bedside for when it gets hot at night. It's really powerful and louder then I wanted but I can't fault it for that. My main complaint is where the switch is. You can't just teach over and turn it off quickly without scooting the whole thing over a foot. But whatever it works fine for what it is.

    It is a fan that blows air, and it works. Since I use this in close proximity in a cubicle, the lowest speed is actually still too strong and also produces more motor noise than I would prefer. It's been about a month since I unboxed this item and it still has a strong plastic smell. True it is made of plastic, but the odor is strong enough that it negatively affects the air that it blows.
