Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Poor This Thing MOVES Air...
I was looking for a small fan that moved a reasonable amount of air. This is it. Its not inexpensive, but it does move air and is well constructed. Its what I needed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BILL NOT SO GOOD!
Bought 2 of these to embellish window AC function. Worked great (for a while). Could detect a difference between these with their vortex configuration and the old Honeywell units that I used for at least 10 years. One unit is still working, the other died after 16 days of intermittent operation. The first response was to check the fuse in the plug. The 2.5a,125v fuse was fine. The fuse is one of those that are used in Xmas light string sets. If the body is white, it should be ok. The fuse turns black when it blows. Checked it with ohmeter it was good. Called customer service, they said to photograph the s/n plate and cut the plug off to prove I destroyed the unit, and that they would send a new one.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MikePDX Failed in One Week
I initially loved this fan. It was quiet, circulated air very well, and made my bedroom comfortable on warm evenings. Unfortunately, it failed completely in a week. I turned it on, the blades moved slightly and it stopped. Nothing but a him after that. I ended up returning it to the retailer I bought it from. I would have exchanged it, but many other reviewers had a similar experience. Overall, this is the only Vornado product I would avoid. I have two Vornado heaters and a 733 air circulator and they're all wonderful. Far superior to anything else on the market. I will continue to be a loyal customer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ArmyVet1989 Totally worth the money.
I first purchased this through AAFES (Army and Air Force Exchange Service) 24 YEARS ago. That's right! This little, but powerful fan lasted that long, and for the last 8 years, I've had it running 24/7. I was very pleased to find the company still in business. Perhaps it is because they make a wonderful product. Comparing the two sided by side, they are nearly identical. The newer version has an easier speed selector knob.

love this small air circulator. very powerful, almost silent on first setting, really great air flow. only negatives are 2nd and 3rd settings are a bit loud and produce too much vibration. my neighbor complained downstairs that she could hear vibration although fan was on my dresser! i put fan on glass with cushion underneath which helped. eventually i returned fan because of vibration but would have kept it had i lived on the first floor.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed in Columbus Very disappointed
We are on our third 530 and hoping each time we return and buy a new one, that the same issues we have don't happen again. It works great for a few months, then all of a sudden it won't start when turned on. And or it starts to make noises that it shouldn't. Sometimes I would assist the blades to jump start it, but it eventually would stop. We have an older model that has worked for years and continues to work well, but this one just doesn't want to live up to the brand. Very disappointed
