Vornado - Compact Tower Circulator - 29" - Black

The 143 Tower Circulator by Vornado offers Vornado's signature V-Flow™ Circulation in a compact size. Uniquely contoured air outlets create a wide span of constant airflow, without the need for oscillation. Typical tower fans oscillate due to limited range of air movement. You feel the airflow for only seconds at a time. With V-Flow™ Circulation, a high volume of air is continuously moving throughout the room, creating quiet, comfortable Whole Room Circulation. The 143 features a remote control that magnetically cradles at the top of the unit, so the remote is always in reach. 3 Speed settings, selected by push-button controls, allow you to tailor the airflow perfectly for your needs. The 143 Tower Circulator includes a 1, 2, 4, or 8 hour timer ensures you run you operate in an energy-saving, efficient way. Vornado has eliminated the wobbly base found on oscillating tower fans in favor of a solid and sturdy system that stands the test of time. Like all Vornado Whole Room Circulators, the 143 is backed by an industry-leading 5 year warranty. Standing 29" tall, the 143 is the smallest of Vornado's Tower Circulator line.

      Expensive Piece of Plastic Garbage

      Standing "Tower" fans are all the rage these days, and most reputable retailers keep an ample supply in stock for the particularly brutal summer months. I had been in the market for a fan for a while, and a friend suggested that I get a Vornado fan. I just wanted something standard to cool off a small room. When I saw the Vornado 143 "whole room" fan, I figured it might be a good buy. The price was a bit steep, but everyone I knew touted Vornado as one of the best brands out there, so I went for it. It wasn't until I got it home that I realized I had paid dearly for nothing more than a cheap hunk of plastic. The entire fan is made of cheap plastic, even the circular base. It has a pretty interesting design with 5 curved vents that are made to circulate air in a fan out pattern to "cool an entire room". Well, despite having three speed settings and vent control, this fan barely put out any air, even on the highest setting. It doesn't cool an entire room. It puts out so little air and is so weak that the only way you can feel it is if you are literally right next to it. It is noisy and very cumbersome to store and move from room to room. This is very odd for a Vornado I hear, so maybe I just got a bad one, or maybe this model is just really terrible. In any case, I would not recommend this fan, it is nothing more than an expensive piece of plastic garbage. You'd be better off with a classic oscillating fan from a dollar store. I use this Vornado as a Demon Tower for my child's action figures, that is about the best usage for it.

      The fan offered many things directly on the box but didn't fulfill them. I got this exact one because I did not want an oscillating fan because those motors always break and or slow down or make noise. This stated it offered a nice solution because of the design but it does not! It felt like I need it directly on top of me and even then you had to angle it in such a way it made everything worse. It also broke within 3 month GSP is the best I will always purchase that on everything I buy because it works! Don't trust those manufacturers warranty

      The only thing good I can say is that I like Best Buy. This product though was completely awful. I purchased for my living room that is decent sized, but not overly big. The only way any form of air would of hit me was if I sat directly in front of the fan. The idea was great at first, but didn't really circulate the air like and oscillating fan. When the fan was on high it was incredibly loud and couldn't hear my tv. I returned the product and went to a lasko fan. Never again would I look at this brand.

      Vornado 29" Tower Fan

      This is a great fan and saves a lot of space versus the typical pedestal style fans. After having owned numerous pedestal fans over the years which typically fail within 1 year or less I love the fact this fan has a 5 year warranty. This is my second Vornado tower fan and I'll be purchasing their even bigger oscillating tower fan for my living room soon since the other 2 have worked out so well.

      I was disappointed when I took fan out of box. It was smaller then my previous fan. But guess what it is powerful.At first I said what is a fan with these weird side slits going to do. Well... a lot! It is very cool and cold at times. I'm like 10 feet away right now and I feel the coolness from one side of room to the next. Great buy! Worth it !!!!

      My brother told me about Vornado fan and when we arrived at the store, I was debating on whether i should get the tower or the fan. But since my room is small, i decided to get the tower to minimize space. I was amazed by how the air truly circulates in the room without swiveling. My only concern is when the weather gets hot & humid, i was expecting more air power when i pushed the high button. Overall, i still like its overall look and power from a small package.

      Good air flow

      I like this fan a lot. I was concerned at first about the fact that it doesn't oscillate, but that is not a problem at all. It puts out a good amount of air. Though I wouldn't classify it as loud, it could be a bit quieter. I generally run it on Speed 2 (out of 4 possible speeds). At high speed (4), it's almost too loud to even have a conversation....but it is a fan after all and that's how these things work. I've had this fan for a few months now and I'm definitely happy with it.

      Poor quality tower circulator

      At the beginning it was quiet then in a matter of three months started squeaking and shaking. Air circulation was not great and it actually collected too much dust. The worst part is that to clean it you have to dismantle the entire unit; not an user friendly operation. Remote control has also poor range. Purchased in May 2017 and dispose it in March 2018.
