    Exceeded expectations

    I'll try to be helpful as I can be without writing a novel. I have never owned a tower fan. I have had plenty of adjustable height circular fans and box fans. I decided to hit the research. I looked at everything from a Dyson blade less to this lasko, and also honeywell. The first thing you need to understand is the only thing any of these do is move air. Knowing that, you need to decide how much air you need to move and how quiet you want that movement to be. There's no magic involved, only power and parts. The Dyson while most silent didn't move as much air as I wanted. I looked at the honeywell before deciding on this. I chose this one based off the airflow. Honeywell is comparable, but not quite as much. The honeywell does have a thermostat which I wish this model had. I live in a town home where the bedrooms are upstairs and have floor vents. To make this fan optimal, I placed it behind the floor vent to oscillate the air coming out. I was very impressed at how much more quiet and effective the amount flow was compared to my adjustable circular. I would recommend keeping near a heat or cooling source to really maximize this. I would buy again.

    Long lasting quality

    We purchased this fan in 2007. We were drawn to the fan because of the style, oscillation, remote control and the ionizer. It's 2013 now and this fan has run every night, save a few weeks for vacations, of every year and is still in perfect running order. Now, that's longevity! I'm always surprised that this thing still works. Now, I will say this, if you are buying a brand new one... find a place for it and try not to carry it around by the handle on the top of the unit much. The only thing I have to complain about is that it can rattle/squeak if you move the unit around. I have to set it just right to make sure it doesn't rattle while we're sleeping. But this is our fault, I don't blame the unit. My hubby used to pick it up by the top every morning and move it to the corner. It made the fitting loose after a couple of years. I believe that if he hadn't done that and we had let it sit in the corner in the first place, we would never have developed the offending rattle. Luckily, I know where the sweet spot is to stop the rattle, so it's not a problem. If you are buying new, just find it's forever spot in your room and let it do its job. You'll still be looking at in 2020!

    Worth the cost

    This was purchased to replace a tower fan, which had more of a pedestal base and got shaky/wobbly towards the end. This fan has a wide base which makes it very stable, a definite benefit in a home with kids. The fan also works really well in cooling a whole room. We have it in our primary living room in the upper level of our home and it keeps the air circulating. The color is nice and works well with our decor. Although it's not a Dyson, it is on the higher price side for what you might want to pay for a tower fan. (We did get it on sale.) It's definitely been worth it for us.

    This fan is great on hot days, it circulates air around the room quite well. In addition, having a remote control is excellent to just turn it on when the fan is across the room. The only down side to this is that whenever i use the control on the fan, i feel like i'm going to break it since it tilts really easily as if it is going to break. The remote control is a great work around. In addition, the ion feature and timer function is excellent if you are sleeping with the fan on but don't want it to run the entire night. I would definitely recommend this to a friend for the price due to its vast functionality for its price.

    Ok I am going to keep this short and sweet. Purchased for by bedroom as I only have one AC vent and it just gets too hot in the summer. Purchased this because of the price and its size 42" I believe. For for about $65, this is a awesome purchase. Can definitely feel a difference in the room. looks good in any room with the color that it is. Moves air in the room very well. Not sure if the Ionizing feature even does anything though. Push the button and it sounds no different than with it not on. Happy with my purchase.

    I use this in my bedroom mostly at night. It's tall enough that I can actually feel it, but I mostly face it away from me so that it isn't blowing directly at me. I set it at the lowest speed. It is a little louder than I would actually prefer it to be, but it's not loud enough to keep me awake. The green light on it is a little bright when it is dark, but I read where someone else just covered it with tape to take care of that issue. Buying this was a lot easier/cheaper than installing a ceiling fan and I like being able to take it from room to room.

    Was skeptical about this fan changing the air in a room but skepticism aside the Ion feature is very unique and it WORKS! After reading some of the reviews I thought I’d give this fan a go. Needed something for my bedroom because my wall is connected to a neighbor who loves smoking in the wee hours of the morning and the smoke smell would keep me up. After using this fan and having it on the Ion feature I’ve noticed I wasn’t waking up choking and coughing because of the smoke seeping into my room. Very grateful for this.

    Nice fan, but kind of loud. Good for watching tv because the tv will mask the sound, but bad for sleeping or just quiet time. (Depending on your tolerance level). Has a rattling like noise that's irritating when trying to sleep. But it can only be heard on the lowest level. I returned the first fan within 30 days and reordered another one thinking it was just a flaw, but the second fan is way louder than the first so I'm returning this 1 too. Good qualities: being tall is a plus because my bed sits high. Love that it refreshes the air, and turns without making noise.

    Nice! Heavy Ion impact

    Super sleek looking, really does the job, but warning to anyone ionizer sensitive: This product is terrific - I picked it b/c tower style with rich 'wood' finish (fits anywhere, unobtrusively, but nice to look it where ever placed )... HOWEVER do not use the ion feature - it gave me terrible headaches and sinus congestion... but the just fan part running, and all is awesome!

    Doesn't get real hot in my whereabouts so this is perfect. Probably need something more powerful if you live in really hot areas or you are just bad with heat, menopausal, etc. this one is in my workout room and takes the edge off when it gets warm. Have a similar one, same brand n size but different model in bedroom that I can't tell any performance difference. Had it over a year with no issues. Would buy again.

    When visiting Hawaii in the spring, they had one of these in the Condo. It was very helpful to circulate the air and also cool things down. I bought one for the bedroom at home to keep us cool at night without having to turn up the air conditioner. It is wonderful, timer is great to get you to sleep and keeps you cool for about 3 hours before it turns off. Great for times that you just need a fan to circulate cool air.

    The fan put out a lot of air for it s size. We use it for sleeping and even though we have a high bed, worked great! Very satisfied with the product. On the other hand, I was very disapointed with Best Buy. The package was poorly package and shipped. It came with a badly damaged package. It was hard to contact BestBuy and communication was inaticuate. Was promised a partial refund and never got it.

    Easy to set up. Quite operation even in highest speed setting. Can adjust louvers in any up or down position. We are using this fan in Living room, 22 ft x 18 ft, and can feel the breeze even in it's lowest setting. Oscillation is quite and smooth. We sit about 14 ft away from fan and the remote works without any problems.

    Very quiet rotates nice and smooth. It is not wobbly or cheaply made. It does cool down the room but not super cold. I was hoping it would be colder. There is a light for the fan which at night is very small and not noticeable . However if you select the ION button it is very bright blue light that is blinding. Good price and looks very nice .

    Helps me sleep at night. We have a foam mattress which I think holds more heat, and I'm a warm sleeper as it is. I leave this on and set the timer for a couple hrs depending on temp. It has definitely improved my sleep. Not very powerful compared to old oscillating fans but perfect for my needs. Looks great too, wood trim goes well with our furniture.

    I bought this fan because I don't have AC. It really isn't bad. It definitely helped circulate air in the room, even cooled it off at times. Downside is if you live where there's heavy humidity, this will probably not do the job. The air output could be cooler, sometimes it does come off a little warm.

    This fan came with a click, on like there is something stuck in it. It has now acquired a nice creaking sound when it oscillates. I missed my 15 day window to return to Best Buy as I work overnights and go to school during the day. My life schedule is a bit different than the norm. Very disappointed in this purchase.

    The item arrived in 4 days after online order. We had stopped by local store but this item was in a 'refurbished' box, and we wanted a new fan. The set-up took five minutes from opening the box, and it is a really nice floor fan. The fan is quiet, has multiple speeds, swivels and comes with a remote control.

    Not worth the hassel

    When I opened the fan to assemble, the screws were stripped and I was unable to assemble it properly. The base of the fan was scratched up and showed the black plastic through the silver coating. Taking it back immediately and will buy a better quality fan from a different manufacturer.
