Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lemonadelady Like it, but...
First, the assembly directions are useless. Use common sense and prepare to scream bad words at it. It is a bit wobbly along the pole, but that doesn't seem to affect performance. It works well once it is given time to get itself in sync. However, the noise of the pump sounds like the idling of an old Mercedes. Its too loud for my liking, but will be okay if not trying to converse near it. Not sure how effective it will be yet because it will not stop raining long enough to get hot here. It seemed to be cool on the trial run.

So far we have used the fan for about 8 hours total. Works great and we are happy to Have a fan that doesn't soak you.
The material quality isn't what I would expect from a 250 buck fan but.... it seems to be holding up well.
My only complaint is that the mister wasn't working. I had to remove the flow control valve and tinker with it. Once I got it working... it has been flawless ever since.
If I had money to blow... YES, I would buy another one. For now... 1 will work fine!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JayS Nice when it works but the water lines can leak too easily
This is a nice concept and when everything is working the mister can help on hot, dry days. But the hose connection to the fan has no strain relief, and without that it is inevitable for the water hose to pull or disturb the rather delicate lines leading into the unit. In my own situation I expect to eventually re-plumb the water lines.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LYNN88 What a disapointment!
Within the first couple of weeks:
1. The fan motor just hums--until I take apart the fan's safety enclosure and manually give the blades a push. Unbelievable.
2. Tonight, the plastic button that controls the rotation, broke off in my hand as I was pulling it up to adjust.

This misting fan would be best used in an enclosed space or small area. While it works very well, it is limited in its capacity. Don't expect it to humidify a large area. Unlike some misters, this fan does deliver a good mist and not a spray.

Concept of fan is great. Was very loud when misgers were on and a part had broken loose in shipment that hopefully was the cause. Still want fan but one that works. StAy tuned.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by reeder Get for sitting around a table
We were able to sit around the patio table during this very hot summer with the Velos 16 in. dry misting fan. We never got wet but stayed cool. It was well worth the money and cleanup was not necessary because nothing got wet. Amazing easy to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by middleagedman A great buy!
The assembly did not take long, and the product cools down the entire back patio of our house. The best part about it is the dry mist; at first it was hard to believe they had the ability to mist and not get anything wet.
