Excellent!!! 4 years on, aircon is only for emergencies
Very powerful airflow even in the end of 35sqm room small speed feels effective. I love that I can use it as ioniser diffuser without fan. I add essential oils. It makes me happy because apart from everything else it is also stylish (oh, and remote control of course!)
Dependable tower fan with excellent airflow and features
Have had this fan since 2014 and have not had an issue with it whatsoever. It gets bought out from storage every year when weather warms up and can depend on it to work every time. Airflow is strong even on it's low setting and I use the misting function to keep humidity in the room when using this fan in conjunction with an air conditioner as air conditioners tend to lower humid levels. As my fan has been used every summer since the end of 2014, it is dusty inside and the misting module in the base of the unit is noisy for a minute of so when ...turning on after a period of no operation. My only issue is the cleaning of the parts that get clogged with dust. There is a rear guard that can be removed by undoing a screw, but the unit is inaccessible inside for proper cleaning. Maybe a rear filter would do it allot of justice for keeping the internals clean. Apart from that, I've had no water leaks from the tank at the base and am overall very happy with it. The digital display looks good too. Have noticed this fan is still on sale at Big W where I purchased mine 6 years ago, so it must be proving itself as a reliable product to still be sold. I don't understand others reviews about issues with this product. I've had none of what's being reported.
Spend your money elsewhere.
I had this fan for a week, before it started leaking onto my carpet. Thinking it was a faulty fan, I exchanged it for a second one. This second fan lasted 2 months before the same problem occurred. I filled up the water tank for the mister well below the max line and once it was placed back, the entire contents emptied through the fan and onto the carpet. Do not buy, complete waste of $129.
dont buy this product
I bought this product from bigw when it was on sale. it was ok before until one night it automatically triggered my circuit breaker in the meter box. I disassembled the bottom parts of the fan and found after 1.5 years usage, the water bottle starts to leak and water is dripping onto the EMI filter and Synchronous motor underneath and causes the short circuit. now the fan is dead.
Good for summer
I am satisfied with the functions of the fan.
and you can adjust the coldness using remote control also.
The fun is not that noisy compared to other brand.
Me and my husband are happy to purchase this brand.
I highly recommend this product of Finci.
Must try it.
No better than a $10 circular fan. Not worth the $100, especially when two years ago Target did a portable tower aircon for the same price. Mine packed it in not even a year after purchase. Turned it off one morning, went to turn it back on that night and it wouldn't blow air no matter what even after basic troubleshooting. Hunk of crap. Built for $5, sold for $120.
To;dr: Avoid, avoid, avoid..
Nothing horrible, nothing great. Just a standard fan. I do think the misting effect is pure gimmick and will not really make a huge difference in temperature. The misting actually only comes out of 4 tiny vent holes and if you look closely at the package in the store, more than half the vents are actually closed and only blows from the right column. As most reviews mentioned here there were a lot of problems with either the oscillation or the misting I have been super careful in handling it as I move it room to room. It is very quiet and ca...n keep with over night. Buttons are el cheapo but once again as long as you're not too rough on it, it works. Bottom line, probably spend 125 somewhere else, its ok but I think you're better off with normal fans unless you just want the fancy look
Not worth over $100
Had trouble trying to start the actual fan to work . The misting worked fine just the rest wouldn't work. Paid $120 didn't work so we returned it . Bought a $50 metal fan from target which works much better. I would not recommend this if you want to risk buying something that doesn't work.
Best fan I have ever bought
We have now bought 3 of these fans ( for different rooms) we bought our first one 4 years ago and use it almost every night just to move the air around after the house has been closed up all day.
Couldn't be happier!
Just need to know where to buy spare remotes..
Please avoid this product
I had two such fans, both of which packed up within a year from purchase. The fan still produces mist but the fan is no longer operational. The fan seemed to perform ok in the first few months but the performance was obliviously short lived. Money completely wasted. In my opinion.
Great cooling fan
Bought this for my bedroom and its great, cool air, various useful settings. Has a temp gauge on it, so you know it cools the air. Can take about three degrees out of the temperature but also blows a cool breeze on the lowest fan setting because of the mister. So far so good, if it lasts well its worth 5 stars. Almost as effective as our Vornado fan.
Questions & Answers
