I purchased 2 of the Lasko fans for my patio. I have new neighbors who have a fire pit on their patio, and the majority of the smoke blows onto my porch and into my bedroom. Tired of having my room filled with smoke, I placed two of these fans on either side of the adjoining fence and have them set to high on oscillating mode. They work great. Powerful, fairly quiet (although I do like the din of a fan). The timers are phenomenal, as I usually set the fans to run for four hours past my bedtime. I haven't had any more smoke in my bedroom, and even my patio is free of the smell by morning. They work great. Easy to put together, and the customer service at Overstock is truly amazing. One fan had a tiny piece of the back grill missing, and the issue was resolved immediately. Great fans and the price is right!
This lasko fan with remote is great. Quiet enough, breeze is substantial, but the remote is the ticket! Remote has 3 speeds, timer settings and on, off. The same functions are included on the fan in the event the remote gets lost. On off button is the little silver button, without my glasses I didn't recognize it, but it's there none the less. This is my 2nd lasko fan the first one lasted thirty years and only broke becuz I turned the nut on the wrong direction after cleaning or it would still be going. Great products and this one I hope to have just as long.
The product itself was satisfactory. It was the shipping method that was questionable. This item was shipped in the box it was manufactured in and it was not taped with shipping tape at all...the box was easily opened for anyone to take parts or the whole fan for that matter. Also, there was no packing material inside the box either. The fan was easily jarred while shipping. After the product was assembled, it worked OK, but I think I got extremely lucky.
Arrived promptly and was straightforward to assemble.
Quiet and effective. I purchased it during a heatwave while trying to avoid using an AC this year. Wanted a quiet and energy efficient pedestal fan to see me through (in addition to ceiling fans) and it has worked out well so far - at a fair price.
Fan is quite top heavy and a couple of times its telescopic stem slipped. Needs strong wrists to do a good tightening job is all.
Bought 2 of these fans at the same time. One has run 24-7, May-September, without signs of degradation; they sound as when new and operate quietly. The fan enclosure is cheaply cast. It, and the fan blade, needed some minor plastic molding trimmed away for appearance and fine-tune balancing. The LED 3-color fan speed indicator (low-med-high) creates an unobjectionable (dim) night light; low speed is amber. On one of the fan's the "all-off" button has jammed and no longer works. The remote has high functionality and covers that issue but is highly dependent on direct aiming, even at close range (4-5 feet).
This fan is smaller than I thought it would be at 16" but it works well in a medium sized room. I LOVE the remote and the fact that it has a timer that can be set for 1, 2 or 3 hours. I use that feature at night because I need the air to fall asleep but it annoys me if I wake up with air blowing on me. Highly recommend this product! I had purchased another brand (well known brand) fan from ****** and returned it because the motor made noise right out of the box. This one no problems!
Have had this fan for over a year. Still working fine especially in the warm weather we are having. I use it at my home office and have it going most of the time. Love that I can control it with a remote since I have it in a porch area in front of an outside window that blows cool morning air into the office through another window into the main office part. I set the timer usually for 4 hours to catch that early morning coolness and then close outside windows. If it gets too warm in office , I just point the remote and it starts the fan up again. Like that I also can have it oscillating so you don't get blown away and there are three speeds. Have been very happy with this.
