THIS IS AN EXCELLENT FAN!
FOR THOSE UNFAMILIAR WITH TOWER FANS, AS I WAS, ONE MIGHT EASILY THINK THE FAN IS NOT MOVING ENOUGH AIR. THAT, HOWEVER, WOULD BE A MISNOMER. THE TOWER FAN, AS OPPOSED TO A TRADITIONAL ROUND FAN, MOVES A WEDGE OF AIR ~42" TALL. THE ROUND FAN MOVES A CONE OF AIR, THAT MAY FEEL MORE BREEZY WITH A DIRECT HIT ON YOUR FACE, FOR EXAMPLE, LEAVING THE LOWER BODY UNAFFECTED. WHEN YOU ARE SEATED, THE TOWER FAN WILL COOL YOU FROM HEAD TO TOE.
THIS STYLE FAN, HOWEVER, MAY BE A BIT UNSTEADY AROUND ACTIVE CHILDREN, BUT PERHAPS WHAT FLOOR FAN WOULD NOT?
THE REMOTE WORKS FINE IN A LARGE ROOM, AND I LIKED THE TIME-SET FEATURE AS WELL. THE OVERALL ANGLE OF ROTATION COULD BE SOMEWHAT GREATER, SAY 45 DEG IN EITHER DIRECTION FROM CENTER. I CANNOT ATTEST TO THE EFFICIENCY OF THE AIR IONIZING FEATURE FOR LACK OF A LENGTHY ENOUGH TRIAL.
A POSSIBLE DOWNSIDE IS THE FAN, REPORTEDLY, HAS A FUSE BUILT INTO ITS WALL PLUG. A POWER SURGE AT OUR HOME BLEW THE FUSE, AND OF COURSE THE FAN STOPPED WORKING. WE WERE ADVISED TO SIMPLY REPLACE THE PLUG WITH ANY GENERIC PLUG AND "DRIVE ON." THAT DID NOT WORK, SO ONE OF THE TWO FANS WE PURCHASED IS INOPERABLE. WE WILL ATTEMPT TO HAVE THE FAN REPLACED, AS THE FUSE BLEW AFTER LESS THAN ONE MONTH'S USE. MORAL-- A SURGE PROTECTOR APPEARS WARRANTED.
Love the fan for the price, but when the ionizer is on for a length of time it makes the house smell. It is supposed to remove household oders not cause them. Now I use the fan without the ionizer on. Oh well, I guess I have to get an air purifier also. I was hoping to get 2 in 1.
We needed two fans for our house...one for the nursery and one for our room since my one year old trashed the old one (it was wobbly and he managed to knock it over several times). These fans seem to be good quality but I've only been using them for a couple weeks now. Color is good...operation is quiet...overall I'm happy. Only bad thing I can say are that they beep very loud when turning on or off which is trouble in a nursery.
Overall, I'd definitely recommend the fan and overstock.

I bought this fan april 22, 2011 and it is the worse purchase I made. The fan shuts off, circulates, puts ionizer on and changes speeds all by itself. The low and medium speeds also do not work anymore.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
How is the quality of the product? bad
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
We have used this fan most nights for the past three years and it is still going strong! It is in my sons room and circulates the air very well. I like the oscillating feature. The blue light that turns on when you use the air cleaner feature is too bright so we rarely use it.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? same

It was great when I opened it, exactly what i was looking for but after using it about 10 times max (less than 1 month) it makes an annoying rattle sound from the top fan blades. The noise is not a repetitive noise it makes the rattle for about 5/10 seconds, stops for about 10/15 seconds then starts up again. I just emailed the company to see if there is a fix, waiting on a reply.
This seems like a great idea... But after the first month of use, the fan slows down by more then half the speed. I still have it, but stuck it in the guest room and purchased a Dyson for the quietness & heat option.
i have this fan i love it i just need to know how to clean it i no longer have my manuel please helpmarilynsmith on Apr 25, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Here are a couple suggestions for cleaning this fan:
1. Rinse the blades with warm soapy water, dry them and put them back in.
2. Use canned air, then turn the fan on and blow canned air in it again so all the "dust bunnies" get blown out from the center....overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 26, 2012
