NOT IMPRESSED - CHEAP RUBBISH
on 24 August 2012
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.
