Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by yeayeayea Powerful but Loud
Very small, lightweight and powerful. Moves a lot of air.
However the only time it is 'whisper-quiet' is when it is off.
If i put it in the another room and have it on the lowest setting, I can still hear it, but then it is quiet enough to sleep. The lowest setting will move the air pretty far. If I am in another part of the house, I can put it on high and it will pull circulate the air pretty well.
However I would not pay $99 for this again. Just too lazy to return it and shop for something similar but cheaper. Also don't know why it has such loud beeps when you turn it on/off.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LarryB Unbelievable relief in my office
The roof top AC unit has not worked since I bought our business 8 years ago. To replace it would have been apps $15K and there's no windows that open in my office to use a typical vented AC unit. Even thought I've used fans, the heat has been unbearable. People can't stand being in my office, and often I would give up and work from home (though most of the time I need to physically be there).
I used the Lesko fan and others on high pointed to my face, but that didn't help much and papers would fly off my desk. Plus it was so loud it phone calls or conversations were a problem.
After 8 years I decided to try the Vornado. Amazing!!! Now the air instead of blowing directly in my face bounces of the wall behind me and I feel a wonderful breeze of cooling air from head to toe. My office has gone from a miserable place to absolutely cool and comfortable with the Vornado. One of my employees used to say regarding my office "This heat will make you mean." Not any more.
No more fan noise you can't talk over or papers flying either.
One thing worth mentioning is that in the manual it said that there has to be SOME cold air in the room for this to work its best. I found out that there WAS one vent at the very edge of the office that had a trickle of cool air coming out (no doubt from another roof top unit). This was never noticeable unless you happened to stand directly underneath and then just barely. But the Vornado manages to make the most of it circulating it around the office amazingly efficiently.
Long review I know, but I had to write it given the huge problem it solved that I was contemplating spending 10's of thousands to fix. And all those summers of misery I could have avoided if I knew about this great product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by YarrowRd Upward tilt is a nice feature
Despite the product being well-made and sturdy, it really doesn't do anything. Certainly, it doesn't circulate the air to cool a room, as advertised. I have tried it in several rooms and ventilated areas of the house, but its the same disappointment in every one. Just like the $19 desk fan and the $34 big metal floor fan, it requires you to stand/sit directly in front of it to feel any cooling affect; but unlike those, it helps only a little bit in a 2-ft radius. I'm keeping it more as a novelty for the tilt feature; maybe it will help with moving the air in the house in the winter? If you are looking for a sleek decorative trinket, this is it; if you are looking for something to help cool your house, this is not it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mellee I'm buying two more of these fans. They are very quiet and move a lot of air over a large area.
The fan is lightweight but very powerful. It moves a lot of air over a large area. It has a lot of speds that other fans don't have.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gabbyswolf You just can't beat a Vornado!
Great cooling. I now just need to check and see how I clean this new model. Have had several Vornado air circulators and heaters. All have been terrific!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ree Bought on other review recommendations
I bought this air circulator because of the reviews that touted how quiet it was on the first two settings. It's not. However, it does provide good circulation so I kept it. Can't have everything, I guess.
A remote control should be provided with this product to make it more user friendly.
