Not bad but noisy
We had the older version, the Dimplex. It works well, but it's noisy. We bought the Omega Altise, not realising that it is exactly the same fan as the Dimplex. Dimplex have stopped making it and Omega have taken it over. It is exactly the same in every detail.
I did a comparison of the noise vs a floor standing oscillating fan (Sunbean FA8900) which we'd bought because we wanted something quieter. The Sunbeam is much quieter.
Using my mobile phone's sound meter I compared the three: the old Dimplex; the new Omega and; the Sunbeam all with...no oscillation and sitting on a soft pad to ensure no vibration noise. Adding oscillation to all of them made very little difference except when the air flow passed straight over the microphone and the noise level jumped briefly. On the quietest setting: 25-35 dB = Background noise in a quiet bedroom (during the day) 53 dB (+/-1) = Old Dimplex (setting 1 of 3) 55 dB (+/-2) = New Omega (setting 1 of 3)
At first worked great, after a while started to get a bit faulty
The fan worked as well as it should for its price, noise was minimal-could barely notice it. After a month or so of using it, it’s fan power started to lack which was the only downside but overall great fan and I would recommend it for people who aren’t lookinh for anything super fancy. Gets the job done.
