The unmatched quiet operation ranks from 40 dBA to 57 dBA, which technical tests prove is equal to average noise levels recorded in a library and allows for incomparable comfort whether one is watching TV, having a conversation, listening to music or sleeping. The oscillating fan head pivots up to 90° left, right, up and down and can be used for either personal or medium room intense cooling. For maximum convenience, the Rowenta VU5551 Turbo Silence 16 in.

Grill immediately corrodes
It’s a good fan EXCEPT the grill starts corroding the moment you take it out of the box. I’ve owned two Rowenta pedestal fans. The first fan grill was totally corroded. The second fan, I coated the entire grill with clear Rustoleum and it made no difference. The cheap grill is totally corroded. The Rowenta rusted grill is very unsightly and nasty looking.

    Good airflow + low noise
    I have had two Rowenta pedestal fans and it does a very good job of cooling. But I have two reservations that may prevent me from getting another one due to quality and convenience. 1) The finish on the metal grille rusts so very quickly. When I purchased my second fan prior to using it I sprayed a clear Rustoleum finish on it hoping that it would prevent it from looking like my first fan. It did make a small difference for about the first year. 2) They need to add an oscillation control button on the remote s otaht you do not have to keep standing up and walking over to the fan.

      Defective base
      Twice the fan has fallen off the base, which, as other reviewers have said, is held by just four tiny screws that (in our case) do not tighten sufficiently to hold in place. Very poorly designed base to support a heavy fan. Do not buy.

            Remote Control
            The product specifications online for this fan does not provide consumers with enough information regarding an important feature for this device.  Specifically, consumers should know up front they are responsible for the purchase of a battery for the remote control.

              Rusty piece of junk
              Works fine but both mine & my daughter’s fan grills are covered with rust! C’mon now!? This is not a cheap fan & they couldn’t go a little extra mile to make sure the grills don’t rust?! I have fans that are quarter the price that still look good 5 years after I bought them. Huge disappointment

                Simply putting it, this is the best fan I've ever owned my only complaint is that it may be too quiet.

                  silent and powerful..even after 5+years
                  Over the years I bought 3 desktops and 2 pedestal models. They are extremely quiet and powerful. I gave one desktop away as a gift. Very pleased with them.
