Not impressed... Steer well clear.

1) - Built one of the fans to find one of the plastic bits that fit in the feet wouldn't fit (cross shaped base). On closer inspection I found the foot had been damaged & bent. To make things worse... the scratches on the foot were covered up with a white paint that didn't even match the white paint of the foot. That tells me that someone knew it was damaged, covered it up, & still had the nerve to send it out to a customer. The screws to fix the name plate to the fan guard mesh on the front didn't even fit. They screwed in to the name plate but even with the tiny washers on, the screws just pulled through the bigger mesh when screwed up. The main upright post has got chips in the paint under the twist hight adjuster. OK, they can be covered up by the twist lock, but that's not the point. I paid for new items, not shop or factory damaged seconds.

2) Went to build the second fan to find that the feet are wrong (cross shaped base). 2 single bars that cross and screw up in the middle. We had 2 feet the same so it was totally impossible to make the cross shape base. After the abismal 1st one, i didn't dare inspect the rest of the second one.

Both fans have been sent back for a full refund. If this is the quality of the merchandise, I definitely do NOT want replacements.

This product is excellent value for money and a sure fire way of ensuring that summer takes a turn for the worse. (only kidding!)
Since buying the fans we have found them to be most effective, and remarkably quiet in operation. Would thoroughly recommend them.

On first appearance this product seems to be very flimsy, however do not be decided. On our old fan we used to use the number 3 setting to get a decent air flow going however with this if you put it on 3 you have a gale force. We have a 25ft living room and number 1 setting is fine when we are all in one area, number 2 setting does the whole room. There were 2 in the deal when we bought them and we use them in different rooms as 2 in the living room are too much. Well worth the money great purchase. Delivery excellent turned up well before expected due date

Ok there's a lot of comments on here thinking if to buy them or not I had the same prob now they are flimsy and cheap yes but what do you expect for the price but the price is good and the delivery is fast the items were simple to put up but I found the main fan bit doesn't sit on the stand propel so wobbles now and again now the big problem is they are very nosy so if your using them for the bedroom this is a no go but for a office then ok. The wind you get is nice the top setting is very strong and decently cools you down quick i would add at this point that setting 1&2 is similar to 3 but they are all quite good settings the other bad thing is the main guard bit that goes on the fan cage won't fit on also the items in the box such as screws aren't in a bag so can be lost verry easily. I I could go on but the main thing that it al comes down to is if you want a cheap fan that doesn't fit together right and is very noisy then go a head and buy but if your after a good quality cheap fan then stay away and buy from another seller.

I bought these fans thinking, 'it's not a lot of money so it doesn't really matter if it isn't top class so long as it does the job.' They arrived two days after the estimated delivery date. BOTH fans came in damaged boxes that had been sellotaped back shut. BOTH fans had broken and badly split motor coverings. One fan couldn't even be put together. I did not expect the Ritz when I bought them considering the price. I wouldn't have bought them for 50p at a car boot. These fans could not be considered new. I am in the process of contacting seller for refund. I wouldn't simply replace them. Terribly disappointed. Not recommended despite the price.

I had mixed feelings when ordering these fans as i'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for and other reviews had said they were flimsey but I thought i'd give them a go.

They were nice and easy to put together and I checked all the parts were there as i'd read other reviews. I've had them running 24 hours a day for a few weeks now, 1 of them on full power (setting 3) and 1 of them on low power (setting 1) and I have to say i'm very impressed with them and at £16.50 each they're fantastic value for money...so much so that i'm considering getting a second set incase I need some more in the summer.

I bought these fans as they came as a set and were reasonably priced.
I had to return these fans as they were flimsy and one of the fans was broken as the plastic is thin.

It's almost August in our second summer with this pair of fans (one for each of 2 upstairs bedrooms), and they're still going strong. Reasonably quiet and able to generate a strong wind on the high setting. Our upstairs rooms are under a black slate roof, so they get quite warm during the day -- we run these fans all night, nearly every night from late spring to late September just to have a reasonable sleeping temperature. At the price we paid, we would have been happy to get but one summer for the money, so these have been highly satisfactory.

This item arrived within afew day, so there's one good bonus point.

As for the product itself - It's true, you get what you pay for. These fans are quite flimsy. But if you don't move them around a lot, and you have no youngsters charging around.. or pets running in and out - then this is perfect.. they do the job right. The blades are a little flimsy too. One of the fans rattles a little when it's on low. But I don't hear it when the fan is running at med or high speed.

I would recommend buying.
