Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by XenaGuy As other reviewers have noted, this fan is very loud, and there is very little difference between the three speeds. It is, however, suitable for my needs. Hence my 3-star rating. I've only owned it for a month, but the first thing I did was to disassemble it and oil the bearings. I hope that will help it to last it for at least two years. Our previous (similar) fan was by a famous manufacturer, and lasted for about 12-15 years.
This one was only about 30 dollars, and a more direct replacement would have been over a hundred, so 5 years would be great out of this one.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JStaz These are truly disposable type fans. My experience, 15 month life span, tops. I've gone through 3 of these. Next time I'll pay the extra for a two year warranty. Beats the price of buying a new one.
Moves air great. Love the white noise it makes for sleeping. Not much of a difference between the three speeds.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Andrew HIGH velocity
When they say high velocity they mean it! This fan moves an amazing amount of air, however with that it is quite a bit noisy. The only thing I can find that I don't like is the carrying handle is welded at an offset angle, odd to carry and set down, handle not at 180 degrees from floor mounting. Other than that, great fan that moves a LOT of air!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by depotloverndallas Owned one year now
screws were a major [pain to remove from grill,to clean the blades. It is much louder than than the high velocity it replaced. If it falls or is knocked forward, the blades will bend. If if falls or is knocked on either side.the blades will bend. If it falls or is knocked to back side. the blades will bend. Se
ems like a stupid comment. but the balance is very easily upset. touch when you walk by pull the cord....ect ( I am 45 with no children so minimum contact with fan. The lift handle is not balance to the fan either,

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Homeowner floor fan
The overall construction seems less sturdy than floor fans I have purchased in the past. Because of that it is lighter. It seems to be fairly quiet now.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SprayYou Blasted while it lasted
It would get more stars, even with its short life, but I also perceived an attitude problem. It lasted 17 months, and gave plenty of air while it lasted. The noise didn't matter to me, because I didn't use it in a situation where anyone cared about noise.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by flowerchild1256 Good buy
Got this for my Husband to use at work. He is a mechanic in a shop. He likes it but wishes it had more or wider blades. It pushes a good bit of air, but he has to run on High all the time. In a normal circumstance say in a home you wouldn't need to run it on high. The cage to me was not as sturdy as the one we had previously, but it is sturdy enough if you are using it in a room, or on a porch. Reasonably quiet...well priced.

This is my fourth Ventamatic Maxx Air floor fan.
My fans just seem to leave when my kids are here.
I have only had one fail out of the four.
That one ran 24/7 in my workshop for the last several years.
The motor finally gave up last month so I ordered another one to replace it.
These fans move a LOT of air for their size and are very quiet.
Don't be fooled by the Chinese knock-offs being sold.
