    Great Fan

    In my room - I have a custom build PC, XBOX, and a 40" TV. Now as you can imagine, all these things turning on together and staying on tend to build up quite a bit of heat, enough to make me sweat. I dealt with this for a while cause my brother wouldn't be playing the consoles a lot back then, but now he plays for literally the same amount of time I'm on the PC...4 hours or so. One day I said enough is enough! I didn't like sweating in my own room after a long day, so I decided to buy a fan. I went through a few pages before getting to the Vornado. What actually drew me here was the price, it was much higher then all the other fans I had looked at. So the question came to mind....is it really that good? Unfortunately, fan reviews are not easy to come by, which is understandable. So I just did some research on what made a Vornado so special from other fans. This fan actually circulates the air in your room and it feels like a light breeze all over your room. It brought down the temperature in my room by about 3 degrees, but on top of that it's a constant breeze that cools you off, so it feels even better then what the thermal reads. Because of the way this circulates air, I actually had to not use my ceiling fan so it would not disrupt the circulation process. This fan blows out a TON more air then any fan I have ever had before. forewarning though, please be advised that it circulates air, that means it will not do it's job if it's pointed directly at you, it has to be pointing to some top corner of the room to move the air round properly. As far as the settings go, 1=Literally no sound at all, 2=Still pretty quite, 3=Now you might want to put a few notches up on your TV, 4= sounds like a normal fan now, it's not super loud, but enough to notice a fan is on somewhere. As a suggestion I would get this fan above all the other Vornado whole room fans. Because what this fan can do on setting 2 and 3 is the high setting for the lower priced models and I like having the choice to go up or down to what I need. Now there is another model called 733, know that the 660 ( this one) is a lot better at energy conserving and can blow more amount of air at a quieter level.

    I've never bought a fan that's not a Vornado.

    This Vornado is slightly smaller than those I'd owned earlier, but it's just as efficient as the larger ones I was used to. I expected complete satisfaction, based on my long experience with Vornado fans, and that's exactly what I got. My one quibble is that when the fan is turned on, it always starts on the highest speed, even though I usually use a lower speed, which means I have to select speed after turning it on. I wish the fan would come on at the speed at which it was turned off. Also, since I want to see some "brainwork" in the fan, I'd like to have a remote that would turn on/off, change speed and maybe even change the tilt (up and down). Anyway, I don't plan on buying another fan for several years now (Vornados last a long, long time, even when used for virtually 24 hours every day of the year). If I live long enough to need another fan, I'll consider nothing but another Vornado, as always.

    Awesome Air Circulator

    This fan is awesome! I'm not a huge fan of the buttons, but it is what it is. The design of the fan looks modern and slick. Wish it could oscilate, but that's not what it's built for: it's built to just push air far and hard enough that the air circulates back towards the fan. Using this in a medium sized room and at setting 2 (out of 4, 1 being lowest, 4 being the turbo speed) it circulates the air very well. During the warmer days of spring (upper 70s) it definitely helps air from being stale. Setting 1 has got to be my favorite. It still pushes air but it's low enough to be inaudible. I use this setting to help push air during warm but not hot days. Turbo mode or setting 4 is the worse in terms of audio. It certainly pushes air very well, to the point that you may not want to do it with loose papers or napkins around. Overall this is the best fan I've purchased in a long time. But time will tell if the cost justifies it's life span.

    Moves a lot of air, but could be more refined

    The selling point for most Vornado fans is that they move more air than other fans. This I found to be true. The fan will not pivot below the horizontal position (down). This is in keeping with Vornado's intended use for the fan (on the ground or at a low point to force colder air up and thus cause circulation through the room) but does limit where it can be placed. I also dislike the user interface. There is a power button and then three buttons for low, medium, and high. Every time you turn the fan on it defaults to high. It also, as far as I can tell, will not restore its on/off state if power is lost (so if it's running and you pull the plug it won't be running when you plug it back in). This means that smart home gadgets won't really work with this fan other than for shutting it off. Earlier models of Vornado fans had a simple dial which would retain the chosen speed setting if power was cut.

    It is NOT a "fan"

    This is our second Vornado air circulator. The first was the mid-size, purchased two years ago to be used in an upstairs bedroom. It does not blow air on you. It circulates the air and the reduction in temperature is dramatic. I've read of complaints about it being too "loud". No, what is too loud is the traffic and neighbors that come courtesy of daylight savings time. The Vornado then becomes the perfect "white noise" making it serve two purposes for the price of one. We recently bought a second, the largest model, only to have as a back-up and to use in the downstairs area when no a/c is required and yet it might still be a "bit too warm". A "fan" is great if you just come in from mowing the grass and want to "cool down" quickly but if you want a large area to actually be cooler, get one of these.

    One Powerful Fan!!!

    One Powerful Fan!!! I hate spending $100 on a fan, because you can by fans for $20-45 anywhere. But it has good reviews, so I caved in and bought it for spring and fall nights. Living in southern California, it gets pretty darn hot, but some parts of the year it actually cools down at night. This fan is amazing! It's powerful, and very quiet considering how strong it is. I can go into the technical CFM details and such, but that doesn't help many people. I also didn't believe that the fan circulated air like it does in the demo videos. So I put it in my hallway, and turned it on. Within seconds, my office door closed. But wait, the office door closes in. So why was it closing? The fan was shooting air into the office, making it "spin" and "turn upside" down, and it caused the air to fully circulate and close my office door. Amazing! This fan truly works great!

    I'll be honest, I was EXTREMELY skeptic that this very expensive fan would work, and I didn't clear up any the first night I used it. HOWEVER, I am now a firm believer in the vornado! Might take some time to find the best spot to place and aim it (for me it was in one corner of the room aimed diagonally towards my door.) With the door open, it pushes air into the hall way sucking cool air into my room the the AC vent, with it closed, it circulates the already cool air in my room gloriously. With all the hot air blowing electronics in my room along with 2 fans, it was at least 5 degrees hotter than any other room in the house. Now? Coolest room in the whole house and I have just the vornado! I highly recommend this "fan" to anyone. Remember though, this isn't a "point in your face" fan, this is an air circulator (although I do have it towards me at night).

    Have owned this several months. This fan is small, surprisingly quiet on 2 lowest settings, and very effective at pushing air around. I own 2 of these, have been using them virtually non-stop during this very warm summer in a condo. One is in a windowless room which serves as office space so much time is spent here. Need to experiment where to place and where to aim. I found it best for me to set it near a corner in my open dining room, about 15" off the ground and aim it unobstructed at ceiling; or in my windowless office, placed closer to center of room (also 15" off ground) aimed up at a blank wall opposite from my desk -- surprisingly better than aimed right at me! Hope it lasts!

    Best available option for a home "fan"

    I put "fan" in quotes because the Vornado doesn't operate like a typical fan, simply blowing air wherever it happens to be pointed. Rather, Vornado excels at circulating air thoroughout the room. For best results, it needs to be used in coordination with your existing A/C and some experimentation is required to find the best location to maximize full-room circulation. I've gotten the best results when the unit is placed on the floor, providing the largest possible vortex of air circulation. Odd shaped rooms may not benefit as much from the Vornado's approach to cooling. Check out a manual before purchasing to see where you would place the fan. Overall, very satisified.

    I purchased this product based off of the reviews from multiple websites. This fan does everything as advertised. It is noticeably cooler in the room when I have the fan on and I can feel it from across the room. Regarding the noise from this fan, I was already use to a loud fan, so the noise does not bother me at all, even on high settings, or when trying to sleep. I can see this being a problem for some who aren't use to it. But the fan is quiet on the two lowest settings. Overall, I would recommend this product for those who want good air circulation in a room.

    I recently moved into a home with an out dated AC. To bridge gap with replace of that and ceiling fan installation, I looked to circulator fans and initially purchased a dyson (fan, purifier and heater) but the cost wasn't justified so I returned it and got this one. It's very powerful at full strength; however, it's also quite loud. But most days, I have it at the lowest or one up setting and that's quiet enough to watch tv nearby but still move the air in my open/larger room. On high, I have to blast tv sound to hear it. I'd definitely prefer a good ceiling fan or maybe a swamp cooler to this but I would recommend this and the price is feasible/justified.

    I recently purchased a new home and the HVAC is dated and does not sufficiently push air so i decided to get a Dyson air circulator (the one that is a combo fan, air purifier and heater) but the cost was not justified so I returned and purchased this model and I would recommend this. It pushes the air super well, potentially better than the oscillating dyson model and there are 4 speeds. The con is that on the two highest speeds, it is quite loud (significantly louder than Dyson). If you're watching TV nearby, you'll have to amp up the sound to hear or turn the fan down. While some wouldn't call this cheap, I'd say the monies are justified on this one.

    My 2 year old does not like a sheet over her when she is sleeping and she wakes up when the AC turns on and the ceiling fan blows the cold air on her. My 7 year old on the other hand likes to sleep under the sheet with the air hitting her face. The Vornado fan is the perfect solution for my problem and I set it up so the air circulates from the corner my 7 year old sleeps and we setup our 2 year old bed on the other corner. Now the little one does not wake up in the middle of the night and instead of waking up cranky she greets us with a beautiful smile in the morning! I am planning to get a second one as the air flow reminds me of sleeping outside with a gentle breeze hitting once a while.

    If your looking to move air around a room this is your best bet for the money hands down. My previous fan started to make some noises at the low setting that I didn't like and it was very distracting so I decided to buy a new fan. The Vornado 660 was the choice I made after reviewing fans on the net for a few days, I made the right choice for sure. The previous fan was a big 20" fan that was loud and did move quite a bit of air on the highest setting but it doesn't even compare to the Vornado on medium, and the Vornado is almost silent on the two lower settings, and I high its not even as loud as low with the previous fan. Vornado for the win, and the wind.......

    Well, at first when I read they did not call it a fan but instead an air circulator I thought that was a little pretentious. After some great reviews I went ahead and made the purchase. And I must say this is awesome! If I need a fan in the future to cool an entire room or area I will definitely be buying this brand again! I guess the one downside is that on the highest and second highest level it is a little loud but not too much. I am okay falling asleep to that noise, but my wife thinks it is a bit loud, so we usually stick to level 1 or 2 which is perfect! I highly recommend this item

    I had the older version of this fan and this new Vornado is even better. This fan has more than enough power and does a good job reducing heating//cooling costs by circulating air around the whole house. I have found that with Vornado fans, you should use them as a circulator; pointing them across the room. The stream of air is focused and strong, so pointing the fan directly at yourself might be a little much at the higher settings. This fan is a little harder to clean than other fans, but it's not enough of a problem that it should deter anyone from buying it. The advantages far outweigh any disadvantages. Five stars!

    I have no air conditioner in my room, so when the summer comes my nights have been filled with sweat. When i was looking for fans, I wanted a powerful one and this fan fit the bill. It has 4 speed settings, and the highest setting is so strong that it put an end to the horrible sleep I was getting, as it cooled my room down tremendously. The highest setting is a bit loud, but not disruptive. There is a big drop-off in noise when its on the second strongest setting, and I can't even hear it on the settings below that. Only drawback is the price, there are a lot of fans that are cheaper, but this one certainly does what I needed it to do.

    This fan is very pretty. It has four speed settings with buttons on the top of the fan, and is very quiet compared with similar fans especially for the lower two speed settings. It cools down a decent-sized room, but as an air circulator, don't expect a directed fan blowing at you. This would have been better (considering its higher price) if it had a remote and timer. If you are sleeping, this would be on all night unless you wake up to turn it off.

    My tower fan had finally gone out after many years, so a replacement was due. My previous tower fan was used for white noise and blew on us while sleeping, but over half of the breeze was lost on the lower part of the bed. I got this fan to sit on my dresser instead of the floor. This thing blows 10-times harder than my tower fan could ever dream of. It has an effective manner of adjustment, is very well made, and moves more air than ANY other fan I've seen, evan those twice the size. LOVE this Fan!
