Great room addition for summer if you don't have aircon!
I can't comment on the retail price as I purchased this second hand from a seller on Gumtree. It was practically new and got it for $40. Yes, AUD! Bargain. Fan is definitely of solid build compared to other pedestal fans I've had which were also made out of plastic/steel. With industrial stainless steel blade fans aside, this is top of the spectrum when it comes to options for fans. The triple fan feature is great because you can choose how many to run and can disable any of them which leaves room for choice. It also allows for additional stren...gth options and is pretty powerful for the size of the fans. Noise is minimal which is great and after using this non stop for the summers over the last 3yrs it still hasn't developed any annoying vibration noises or unusual sounds that can be too common with the basic cheaper pedestal fans. Swing feature is also a bonus. Height and size of fan is very convenient and realistic and the design is modern and fits in to almost any style and environment. Light enough for easy moving yet sturdy enough it feels stable when you stand it on tiles, floorboards or carpet. I have no issues sleeping at night with it on and the timer function is also great for those who don't like having it on throughout the entire night til morning. I'd definitely buy this again and would recommend this to anyone looking to buy a decent and durable fan that doesn't have a hefty Dyson pricetag. Living in a unit/apartment, my options for installation of aircons is limited and very costly to have wiring installed running from the kitchen where the switchboard is located to the other side of the unit to my bedroom. So this is a convenient solution to the hotter days (I also have a portable air conditioner however they can be quite noisy, given their power) but for my 3m X 3.5m room, this product is more than enough for most summer days unless we cop a heatwave in which case, no fan will create a comfortable environment with cooler temperatures like an installed or portable air conditioner will manage to do. Overall, great product with good features and a solid build with minimal noise. I believe they sell for around $150 retail which I would still spend now that I know how good they are. (Only negative is the timely cleanup with the build up of dust in the little holes and on the fan blades. If the blades would somehow snap out of place and could be removed to allow the cleaning process to be easier, it would probably be a helpful design concept).
Purchased in November 2018 for $40.
Top fan doesn’t work! No information about how to fix it.
Top fan doesn’t work! Can’t find info how or who can fix it. Apart from that it is a reliable and looks good. Wish I could find the manual! Suggestions? Advice
This fan, I have 2 is a treat has been super reliable though some reviews are right the stem has just broken on 1 and I would like to know how Felix Mathieu of Perth repaired his 4 times, published 2 years ago.
Purchased 2.5 years ago
Excellent in every way, except the beeping when pushing buttons is annoying. It's rather quiet but can pump out alot of air on high. The remote comes in handy too. It seems to be rather sturdy.
I'm not sure what the funny modes are, I just use high med low.
Looks cool works fine.
First one I had to replace under warranty because the middle fan stopped. New one seems fine. Nice and quiet and has a gentle low a decent powered high setting.
Had to put black tape over the blue light when I use it at night. Wish I could turn off the beeps at night but not a huge deal.
it's the best looking.
I bought this for last summer from the good guys.
At that time, I thought it looks cool and doesn't look like typical fans.
And it's help my family for this year too.
Everything is good. Even there are three fans, you can choose how many fan that you want to run
But only problem is neck part is bit weak so people needs to be careful with it.
Excellent floor fan
I bought 2 of these units one each for the living and dining rooms. Love he fact that I can have 1,2 or all 3 of the fans going at any one time and the oscillation is nice an wide. My lounge is a long large room and one of these on high is powerful enough on the highest setting to move air throughout the room without becoming too noisy.
Love this fan
I simply love this fan for so many different reasons. Its cool to look at... so many people have actually thought its some amazing speakers I have and not a fan, great at making warm days/nights cooler and 2 year long warranty, not even crazy expensive. Never imagined having a remote control can come in so handy!!
A great, versatile fan
I really enjoy this fan. It has cool looks, quite a lot of options for what it does, and is quite transportable considering it's unusual shape and size. My only problem lies with the lights on the fan, which make sleeping with it on a little bit difficult (I ended up taping up some bright bits with electrical tape, haha).
Compact, powerful, great timer for nightime to conserve energy
Great fan. Nice and compact for the corner of the room. We have a very small bedroom with no room for a traditionally shaped round fan and this sits nicely in the corner and rotates as well.
I really like the timer as it means I can cool down while reading/ drifting off to sleep but not have to leave the fan on all night and wake up cold in the middle of the night. Also the adjustable fan levels means I only need to have the top fan on while in bed but can keep feet cool while at my desk. Also, no fan blades like traditional fans so not wor...ried about little fingers. All in all happy with this purchase so far only negative comment I could make, and surprised by other reviews, is the noise. It's not very noisy but I can't leave it on the "ocean breeze", or the "ZZZ...snooze?" setting as it revs up and down and I find the noise a little annoying when trying to get off to sleep or watching tv so I don't use those settings. Also would be good if the remote control buttons were back-lit so it's easier to adjust in the middle of the night. I have memorised where the buttons are so I can to avoid turning on the light. Apart from that, happy to recommend to friends.
Great versatility! I'm a big fan.
It has many settings and combinations to play with. I can choose which fan to turn on, and how strong, and for how long. The build is quite light, but still sturdy too. I am very happy with the fan. The only down side is that it looks kinda weird.
Nice to save space, but fully satisfied with wind
- size is very good. Ideally fits in living area without occupying much of space
- quite operation. I have kept near to tv and not much of disturbance with wind noise
Simple and elegant look this fits living area
- not much wind at peak summer times. Max speed is sufficient to handle very warm days
Its a perfect tower fan
This tower fan have sleek design, touch screen button and blow cool air better than normal tower fan and good power, and quiet, using it on our living room powerful enough to cool the whole living room, bought it on sale on jb-hifi, best tower fan i ever had, would recommend it to everyone
Faults with this moddle.
Fans work well. Unfortunately the stem on the base is a weak point and have had to repair it 4 times. One of the blades on the middle fan snapped off so I cut the other side to balance it. Works ok. Other than that it is still in use.Thank you.
Looks Cool works well
Firstly it blows cold air, That should probably be enough, but this thing looks pretty good. I use this in the bedroom and it is very quiet and the timer turns off when expected. I got it on special which was a bonus, All in all I am very happy and would recommend this cool looking fan.
Questions & Answers
