Quiet and powerful will let you sleep again at night in hot weather
on 30 July 2014
I ordered 4 of these fans in the current heatwave, one for each member of the household. The arrived quickly in one big box. The first three fans were in perfect working order, not too difficult to put together and work really well. Even on the lowest setting of the three speeds, it gives a powerful current of cool air - either oscillating or static. It has made all the difference at night in the sweltering humid conditions. None of the fans squeaks or is noisy, and it is useful being able to adjust the fan head up or down.
The fourth fan had some problems - the fan nut was completely missing, a small part of the back of the plastic blade had cracked off and was loose in the box, and one of the plastic ends to the feet had also been cracked before it reached us. I contacted the marketplace seller and after a couple of queries, they replaced the fan with a slightly different new model which works as well as the other three, five days later. For the faults and delay caused, I have deducted one star. Otherwise this would be a five star review.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this fan. The price was about £18.50 each, which I think represents excellent value. We also have a more powerful metal fan in our living room, but that cost almost three times the price of one of these. It is not the most robust fan on the market, but it looks good and certainly does the job in the hot weather!
