The Honeywell HO-5500RE Oscillating Tower Fan with Remote and Timer has a practical and contemporary space saving design to cool your home in style. Air flow capacity can be controlled at three different settings to reach your desired level, this can be controlled by the easy to use control panel, or from across the room via the remote control. Should you want to change the setting because you are too hot, or too cold, you don't even have to leave the comfort of your chair should the remote be to hand.
A large oscillation function ensures evenly distributed air directed into various spaces across the room, and a gliding grill function means you get all the benefits of the oscillation function with out any safety concerns as motor housing remains stable and oscillation is internal. The timer allows you to programme the fan for up to 4 hours cooling so you are in control.

CONS: the plug/cord length is shorter than I'd like, but nothing an extension lead didn't solve; if you're using it at night the blue 'on' light might be a nuisance, but you could always put a bit of tape or blu-tac etc. on it if it bothers you; the breeze isn't nearly as strong as other Honeywell fans I've had - the one in my bedroom is a small table top fan and the Tower Fan's highest speed is only as powerful as the tabletop's lowest speed. I have a large-ish living room, so I could've done with a bit more ooomf in the breeze(!), but it's certainly enough to stop me from melting in 35'C weather!
CONCLUSION: Great if you want a tall oscillating fan that's reasonably priced, light, quiet, and takes up hardly any space. Be prepared for (1) the breeze to be less powerful than a regular blade fan, (2) to use an extension lead if you need to, and (3) to cover the blue light at night with something safe e.g. black tape. Definitely a win for me!
Purely as a fan, this is excellent, very powerful, great cooling effect. The oscillating function is good and quiet. The build quality is sturdy enough and the added remote control is great.
Where I think it's let down is by the different modes it has, which just seem superfluous. The night mode in partcilular is poorly thought out. It turns the fan on and off constantly, which I found even more difficult to sleep with. Also, you'd think night mode would turn off the super bright LEDs, but no, it turns another one on!
Just leave the fan on low, which is quiet enough to sleep with (but not whisper quiet by any stretch) and put some gaffa tape over the LEDs!
It's very stable, and this won't change because only the grill "glides" (oscillates), not the whole fan unit. The whole unit can also be swiveled on its base, so you don't have to pick it up to rotate it and so on.
Noise levels are fine. At the lowest setting, with a window open, it's barely audible.
One of the other tower fans (Homebase/Challenge) has only one superior feature: more timer options, instead of just 1/2/3/4. Other than that, it's great.
For me the LEDs are not too bright and they're actually helpful, but it's in my living room. For the bedroom, I'd recommend LightDims
I bought two of these, one for the lounge and one for the bedroom. In both locations, noise level is of some importance and I'm happy to report that these are fairly silent, even when oscillating, which is a top issue for me, as every other tower fan I've used made noises when swivelling. The middle speed is just about OK vs sound from my TV set up, but the highest speed will definitely have you reaching for the TV remote and volume adjustment.
I'm not interested in the timer feature -- it will only run for up to four hours, not a whole night anyway -- and the breeze and nighttime modes are of no use to me as the change in noise / wind level I find a distraction. But as with the lounge arrangement, I find I can cope with even the highest fan speed noise and still sleep.
The only negative is the ridiculous blue LEDs that manufacturers seem to believe that every consumer wants. I put yellow insulation tape over blue LEDs, which results in a pleasantly reserved green glow.
I've no idea how long these will last and given that it's almost September, they will be going up in the attic for the winter soon, but they "feel" well made and I'm hopeful they will serve me well for a few years. I'd recommend to a friend.
