Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MDMD2 Great Powerful Compact Fan
I bought the Vornado to use in my shop but especially to dry out my carpets in my truck. During a recent storm the wind broke down the weatherseal and water intrusion into my truck occurred. The Varnado fan fit on the seat or on the truck floor and provided excellent circulation to help dry out the carpet. Our local Home Depot centers did not have this item so I drove 40 miles to the store that has this in stock. In hindsight it was the best 80 mile round trip purchase I've ever made.
It is quiet, powerful, well-built, and will serve many years to come.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ShaunSkeen Awesome & very powerful
I can't say enough positive things about this fan. When I first looked at this fan I read the specs it said it could blow 100'. I was thinking no way so I took the display model walked it to the contractor desk plugged it in & it blew the papers that where attached to the end caps of the isle I counted 11 isles probably 100-110 feet. Now the papers weren't flying off the display but you could see them moving now that was perfect conditions no wind to stop the air. I have it in my home going on 2.5 years it has never been shut off doesn't get hot. Don't try to compare to similar looking fans because you cant. It will surprise the heck out of you. If I had to complain it would be for two things one is when on high it's loud but she blows. Two is the adjustment for the angle doesn't seem that strong feels like over time it would ware out and never stay tight. If you have to adjust unscrew and adjust don't try to force it. I don't really mess with mine so no problems yet. Another thing is the blades are very strong my son he's 1.5 years old he's shoved spoons,forks,tapcon screws,change, and whatever else probably fingers also. I think they are made in America which is awesome you should always try to buy American if available quality is always there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Windsurfer Not quite satisfied
I am using this fan for small, overheated apartment. I like the shape, solid stand, power, ball bearings and 5 year warranty. This fan is not quiet. At maximum speed the noise level is 60 dBA, at medium - 56 dBA and low - 50 dBA. I don't like the grip handle because it should be 1/2" higher (now when I lift the fan the housing hits my fingers). Also the rubber legs move on the stand and rotate, THEY ARE HOPELESS.
If those two things could be fixed by the manufacturer I would be happy with my purchase. In my opinion Vornado is overrated and overpriced.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bonjourno Still Made Like They Used To!!
First of all let me say, it was a pleasure ordering through Home Depot On-Line. The fan came promptly, on time & the box was in perfect condition. They used the UPS Carrier Service. The packing by Vornado, inside the box was very protective of the fan. There were cardboard sleeves protecting the fan & the parts so they would not get damaged if the item was jostled around by the carrier, which by the way the outer box looked like it was handled properly & with care. As far as the product itself, what can I say other than it delivers exactly what it said it would. It is very well made, strong, & believe it or not, the coloring of the fan added something of a little zing to our bedroom where the fan sits perched on our expensive furniture. It blends in quite nicely. My wife had her doubts because this fan is labeled as a SHOP FAN. This fan passes on everything from it's quality in mfg., looks & operation. Thanks Home Depot for a Great & effortless Sale! We'd definitely buy from the on-line store again!!

this product does not work as advertised. Air
Flow is very low. This would work only in a very small room and blowing directly on you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by birigoboom High velocity for its size.
High velocity for its size and close to commercial build quality. Good for shop use and available wall mount where space is limited.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rescue false advertising - will not cool a whole room
This fan has a good force for a small room. It has a hard time in my office. I can not see it even trying to work in a garage or large space. Very disappointed for the price. I wrote to the company and voiced my disappointment.
