Good effect, bit noisy

published

While most fans have a pretty measly output, I was really impressed with the power of this one. As a result, it was a little noisy, but I guess that comes with the type of fan. I enjoy its compactness as well, it fit in my room easily, and the cord was long enough.

You get what you want

published

Knowing the type of fan i was purchasing, I knew the noise would be loud, however this is compensated by a satisfactory amount of output. Power over Comfort is definitely the way to look at this fan. Functions wise, it was relatively basic, but thats what you want with this type of fan.

Decent Fan Moves a lot of Air

published

The fan itself is fine, the cord is long enough so it can be placed appropriately and it moves a decent amount of air around a room. I find the high setting to be unbearably noisy and can not use it on high, the lower settings are ok however if noise is a problem for you at night and you want a lot of air to be moved you might be better served purchasing something a little more expensive.

Worked well for a year, then started slowing down

published

The fan functioned very well for the first year, provided an excellent amount of wind for the size of the fan. Perfect for cooling you down in the hot Australian weather. It was loud but it did its job. However after a year it started slowing down and sometimes stopped. Had to replace it.

Has been great for summer

published

Wanting to keep my energy bills down this summer, I thought if I got a powerful fan I would run my air conditioning less. This cheapie fan from Kmart has been perfect. While it's no air conditioner, the high velocity of this fan at full blast really does help with cooling my apartment down. It can be noisy, but it's to be expected. I don't really like the chrome look of the fan (would prefer white), but really for the price you can't go wrong. You just need to expect a lot of wind!

A bit loud, but very strong

published

Just like most others, I found this current summer a little too much, and needed a new cheap fan. Finally settled on this one from Kmart as it was only 50$, and took up a small amount of space.
Very surprised by it's speed and power. No rattling noise that usually comes with other powerful fans, so can recommend this for nights and sleep even though it's loud enough it's not an annoying noise.

Big wind and big noise

published

It lives up to its title of high velocity. It does indeed to a good job of making strong wind however it also makes lot of noise. Would not recommend this fan for inside a house, would probably be good for a shop or maybe a garage but too noisy

Awesome. It has seen us through the hot days.

published

I found this fan quite adequate for these recent hot days, which is hard considering it is Queensland. I leave it on overnight and the gentle whirring sends me to sleep like a baby. I like the chrome look. Overall, I would definitely recommend this fan to my family and friends.

Very effective!

published

This is great for the store I run and circulates the air in the room efficiently and quickly. It's portability is a great selling point and its noise level compared to other fans its price is very quiet. Another good point is how there is no assembly required and the many levels it can be adjusted to. Wonderful for how much it is!!

Amazing fan

published

During the summer having the aircon on can be very costly so we went on looking for a fan that will do the same job but cheaper. Most fans are for small rooms and dont do much this fan is the closest possible to a industrisl fan and is amazing for the days where it is hot but not hot enough to bother with paying for the ac it is a bit loud but is very easy to use

Very good fan for very good $$

published

It does everything you want it too, very cheap to run and purchase. Sit's on my work desk, and does a very good job at keeping me a bit cooler. Also is easy to carry if it needs moved and leaves enough room on the table for work space. 8/10

Cheapest and best fan you can get forget Dyson

published

We live in a hot house, so I extremely needed an item that would screen and treat the air. I like the fan as it is actually not that loud as opposed to a Dyson, I would highly recommend this compared to Dyson. It is like 10 times cheaper and makes the house extremely cool. I am pretty sure I only bought it for 30 dollars as well! What a absolute bargain.

For a budget, its good.

published

I got this fan to help move air theough my house. For a budget fan, its pretty powerful. A little loud at medium to high, but arent they all. Well pleased amd its lasted. For the price, i thnk its worth it. havent measure the wattage yet. Hopefully i dont get a surprise.

Good, but noisy!

published

I've only used this fan for two days. I do like it and works well. Pros are that there is no assembly required unlike a pedestal fan. The only negative is that its noisy. I can hear it from the next room. For $49, I think it's a reasonable price.

Very sturdy base, No assembly. Very Satisfied.
