Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Circulator I actually like the yellow case of this fan(some reviews do not). I love the design, the well built solid case. The powerful motor makes this Vornado push a lot of air. I use it in my kitchen at home. Great product which I highly recommend! June 23, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Did not help with Cooling my apartment This fan is powerful, it generate a strong wind at quite a distance. I got it in the hope that it could help me cool my apartment by 5 deg, given that in the morning the apartment is often 10 degrees warmer than outside even with windows and doors open. But the thermostat did not budge and I returned the unit. This fan is too powerful even at a low setting to blow directly on me. My room is not an enclosed room, there is an entry way leading to it, and I did not notice that the fan would generate a circulating air pattern in this condition. July 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy customer This fan is worth every penny, quiet, works fantastic, and I am very satisfied July 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good strong performer I been a loyal Vornado fan user for a long time having 4 O.A.Sutton vornado fans this shop fan i have the 283 HD is still kicking after 10 years and use it year round wherever i need it for bedroom air circulating to working on vehicle interior. The 293 bumps it up a notch as the motor is different from the 283. If my 283 were to fail im not sure of sending it for repair as i like that style of motor in it that makes it look like a true Vornado fan like the round motors used in my 4 vintage O.A. Sutton Vornado air circulators i have. But so far so good with both shop fans i got. going to keep them for a very long time. this is also the perfect fan to take with you when you travel on ground going on vacation. January 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by As reliable as ever As reliable as ever. Too much information requested. If I didn't respect the fan company so much, I would just drop out of the review process. Would you prefer I go on endlessly about how I feel about the color yellow? June 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Fan Needs Special Addition !!! We use this fan for when I DJ in various venue locations. it helps keep our entertainment crew and Myself cool. I just wish it was available in a more stealth carbon black option so it can be used backstage without being an eyesore. Other than that its great. Anybody that walks into my work space area comments immediately on my fan. Bring out the Heavy Duty 293 Black Carbon DJ Keivan addition !!! January 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heavy Duty High Velocity Shop Fan These fans may be little but they are mighty. Our home was severely flooded 9/07/11. Needed add'l fans to help dry out the home. They have been running 24 hrs a day since they arrived and are still going strong as of today 11/19/11. The air movement is strong and incredible! Very, very pleased. November 19, 2011
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Brought them back Nice fan but not near as powerful as was advertised in the manufacture's write up. I brought both fans back to my local store even though I had ordered them online. They made everything very easy for me which I truly appreciate. I then bought 4 Lasko High Velocity Fans (which had just arrived) for my garage and they blow up a storm. The reason I like Lasko fans is that my sister in law had given me one in need of repair a couple of years ago and I was able to get the parts I needed from Lasko with no problem. That speaks very well for them and gives one peace of mind that should you ever need to make repairs you can without, as is the case with so many companies, being forced to discard a still good product. So in short I am very please with the final outcome of this transaction. March 24, 2015
