Not all that impressed,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered this item when it was £54.99 reduced from £99.99. The following morning (after a short period of being out of stock) the same item re-appeared priced at £79.99 (from £99.99), then a few hours later £89.99 (from £99.99). By that evening the 'original price' had changed from £99.99 to £110.99. Draw your own conclusions but it left me feeling that we were being mislead into thinking we had a greater bargain than was actually the case.
I emailed Amazon, the reply was along the lines of 'nothing to do with us'. Whilst I accept that Amazon is only the 'middle man' such disregard seems to make them no better than eBay. Don't get me wrong, I love eBay too but on there I know to be wary, somehow I thought Amazon was better. I then emailed the GrandGadgets to ask what the original price was and for how long but they have chosen to ignore the question.
I paid for express delivery but then Parcelforce misdirected the parcel to the other end of the country. To be fair Grandgadgets were very quick to refund my postage on request and this is what I give them two stars for.
As for the fan, well, it's pretty ugly but all the nice ones are out of stock everywhere else or have doubled in price on Amazon since the heatwave so beggars can't be choosers. It's less powerful than my £20 Argos tower fan and equally noisy. Having not been able to get hold of any other brand of tower fan I have nothing to compare it to so maybe that's normal. It has a timer which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. It may be faulty but I suspect there is a knack which they have not revealed in the instructions as sometimes the dial moves freely and sometimes it is stiff but seems to be intentionally so.
All in all I'm disappointed. If I'd paid more for it I'd return it, if it was a smaller item I'd return it and if I thought I had any hope of buying an alternative I'd return it. However it all seems too much trouble so it will have to do.
