Purchased this fan in my attempt to beat the Hawaiian mid-day heat. Since electricity cost is nearby double that of the continental US here I was looking to avoid turning on the A/C and this fan certainly delivered. Power-wise it's much stronger than I expected - much stronger than conventional tower fans. And it's pretty quiet too, although the noise is a little high-pitched due to the high rpm motor, so if you prefer the typical white-noise this fan may not be for you. Swivel and remote works great, overall very happy with my purchase!!
I needed a better fan specifically for bedroom to "help" the central air conditioning spread more effectively and at same time provide the needed breeze to be able to sleep comfortably. Always wanted one of these and Overstock's price plus *** coupon was too great to pass-up! Although this states refurbished, as does the paperwork and sticker on box when it arrived today, it looks and even smells brand new! Even the way Dyson packages this is great industrial design! Works like a charm and provides much better air flow than my really good Vornado circulating fan, that just was not cutting it last Summer for my needs. Perfect height, even with my platform bed, which is a bit higher than typical beds due to rather thick memory foam mattress. Even got my cat's approval. Thirty minutes after placing order I realized I had forgotten to add the two year warranty and called Overstock, whom took care of the issue immediately to my satisfaction. Great customer service, prices and products keep me coming back!
