I had been thinking about this for some while, but the cost put me off. Finally I bought it and
have not been sorry, a very good purchase.
A lot of people are complaining about the fan's alleged 'silent' running, and they seem to misinterpret the idea of 'silent'. No fan can ever be completely silent, there will always be quiet sound of airflow. What the manufacturers actually mean when they describe the fan as silent is that the motor is silent. As such, when a cheap fan is switched on, there may be a quiet hum or an annoying click from the motor, especially on higher settings. With this fan, the motor is silent, but you can still hear the airflow. That is impossible to prevent.
Saying that, few fans make a particularly loud hum nowadays anyway, and it seems that with even cheap fans, the noise of the airflow is often louder than the motor itself. It depends how fussy you are in this aspect.
Unfortunately, there are a string of bad points for this fan. Primarily, it should be noted that the fan has no speed settings. It is merely on-and-off. The on setting is also not that powerful. It is ideal if the fan is on your desk as you'll get a nice breeze without your papers flying everywhere, but if the fan is in the corner of the room then you will struggle to find much cooling effect from it.
The coverless front does have its draw backs too.Read more ›
probably only use a few weeks a year (even that's optimistic, I live in Scotland!). In the end I thought that better to spend more on something that does the job rather than get something cheaper that maybe wouldn't work as well. In the end I'm glad I did because this fits the bill really well. It is very quiet as promised without the annoying rattle of cheaper fans, as well as looking stylish. There is only one speed setting which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, but it is well made & should last me a good number of years. All in all it is worth the cost & I'm glad I went for it.

Really nice and quite fan with a contemporary feel. It was a bit smaller that I had imagined but it produces enough air to keep me cool. :)Published on 29 July 2011 by SR
Definitely not silent, vibrates and whirs. Quite fiddly to assemble and not good vale- only one speed, one postion and not very powerful. Buy something cheaper.Published on 19 July 2011 by sarah
