Rated 5 out of 5Â by swipp Good fan, puts out a LOT of air!
I own both the Lasko 40" Hybrid and a Honeywell Quietset vertical fans. I like them both for different reasons. The Lasko is noisier, but solely because it is moving more wind. I don't find the noise a problem on high, and on low it shouldn't disturb your sleep. The Lasko has less features than the Honwywell (3 speeds vs 7, no timer or thermostat control), but they both have remotes - and the Lasko has the features I desire. I use the Lasko in a larger room and the Honeywell in my study. I have had both for ~ month and used them heavily and no "strange" sounds or problems have emerged. I think the Lasko Hybrid is an excellent choice if you want something that will put out a stronger breeze than most any other vertical fan.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by hotinCA quiet fan!
Very sturdy, produces a good strong breeze, and is reasonably quiet. Has some nice touches, like the nightlight at the bottom. The box it came in was a bit thrashed, but the fan was okay. Minimal assembly, just the base.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Deskexplorer2 40 in Hybrid vs. Lasko HVB
The HVB wins just slightly. The 40 inch Hybrid moves just as much air as Lasko's highly rated HVB Tower Fans. I purchased both models and I was very impressed with how well the 40 inch Hybrid performed in blowing out air.
So if you're looking for a tower fan that can push out a lot of air I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this 40 inch Hybrid Tower Fan or one of the HVB models.
These fans are slightly louder than the standard tower fans so keep that in mind when ordering.
Cons: There is no timer or fresh air ionizer.
The bright blue power light located on top of the 40 inch Hybrid Fan will light up a dark room with a blueish glow. That can be distracting for some people.
The fan may prove difficult to clean later on.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by bb86 Best Tower Fan
I purchased this fan over a year ago, and the fan is still working. I originally purchased this fan because my dorm did not allow me to control my thermostat, so I needed a high powered fan. The ground level fans took too much space, which was why I wanted a tower fan. This fan has surpassed my expectations of a typical tower fan. For those who may be located in a building lacking grounded outlets (3 prong) this is a two prong fan.

Great fan for a large bedroom. Have other fans to circulate window air conditioner and this works the best.
