Bought it as I have had sunbeam equipment in the past and its been fantastic but unfortunately this is a rotten egg amongst the good ones.
Its loud, and when i mean loud I mean REALLY loud. I have a fan on all night for the white noise but this is on a whole other level, at the moment I have resorted to shaking the fan throughout the night to stop the rattle from being so loud. Its now to the point where it wakes me up of a night time. I am positive this is a factory defect as it only happens intermittently and a few shakes quiets it down a b...it but obviously I shouldnt have to do that on a brand new product. For a fan that is so proud to show off its "night mode" it is anything but suitable for night time applications. Aside from that build quality is what youd expect from an $80 fan. Plastic clicky buttons, a membrane 5 button remote. The nicest part about this fan is the on button is separate from the fan speed button which means it remembers your fan speed setting so its a one press start and go. And the batteries are AAA Unfortunately I cant look past this blatantly terrible defect. I will be returning it under warranty for a replacement or refund, it will likely be a replacement as this one had to be sent from interstate due to lack of product. Really sad to see.
Mmmm not to happy
I live in a cold city and don’t really need the fan, but because of my asthma I need circulation of airflow in my room, I loved the design and circulation the fan gives but we only had it for just over a month and it stopped working. Not to happy about that. When we purchased the fan it didn’t come with a remote or manual .
Effective but didn't last long
Had this fan during summer and it worked pretty well
It circulated the air with its spinning body
Also had a remote control with a timer functionally too, that was a good feature
However the fan eventually stopped working and when you turned it on it would only sometimes worked and stopped turning too, was probably only used for around 100hrs before stopped working

Good value fan
Bought it from the good guy.
The fan has 3 levels and swing mode.
Good fan for summer season but in my opinion the fan is not strong enough for super hot day. Also base is not really stable. Night mode still noisy for me but over all it work fine. Nice design and good for value ~90$.
Quiet fan, sleek design
Best thing about this fan is it's size. Perfect height, but only a small stand, so I actually put it on my bookshelf.
This helps the air reach all across the room, almost like an air conditioner.
The "Breeze" function doesn't make sense to me, it just intermittently cuts off the fan. But the timer is very helpful. And it has a remote, which is very easy to use.

Good for the price
Overall, fan is good, but only if bought on sale or at a discount. Fan isn't loud, but it also isn't quiet. It's strong enough for overnight, but not replacement for AC. It's got a timer function, as well as a ‘low light’ button for use overnight, so it's definitely a good bedroom fan. Reason for 4 stars is because fan is good, but the RRP is very high for such a basic product.
Good for sleeping
At the lowest setting and on night mode it gives a good quiet breeze for sleeping. It doesn't really hold up as well when it is actually hot though since the highest setting doesn't push as much air as a conventional fan.
Overall I recommend it but something a bit more powerful would be better on those 40 degree days.
Worth buying for witness at night and keeping cool
Purchased this fan for our bedroom after using one at grandsons, cooler than your standard fan that just circulates the hot air, this actually is cold air, has remote control which can be left in back of fan, has 3 settings, can turn to night mode so know light shows, also oscillates, very quite also, no regrets on purchase.

Great fan for what it is.
The fan has great power usage and output of fan force does it's job for what we need it for. It's not the quietest fan I've seen or heard of. Easy to use functions are great especially with the Night one black out of the lights, looks great stylish could be helpful with a longer power cord as well it doesn't look intrusive where it stands whether it be in the lounge room or bedroom.
Good output of air and I run on first speed and oscillate at night to keep bedroom fresh. Quiet and night mode is good. Base if put together correctly is very stable, much more so than several other brands tried. Two year warranty is a plus. Very happy with purchase.
New fan No air!
Bought this fan only to have to do a one hour round trip tomorrow to return it. Everything but the physical fan part works. No air is going through it at all even when in the middle of a room. Definately getting a different brand tomorrow morning! The only good thing is that it is easy to put together.

This fan does what it is meant to. It can be loud at highest speed setting otherwise ok for a bedroom fan. Timer works fine. Can get a little bit wobly if not on straight smooth surface. Bought one for bedroom and another for kids room. Ovetall happy with my purchase considering the price I bought it.
After one year - a mixed bag
This starts out great. Whisper quiet, fabulous option for night time, turning off the lights on it, remote. Loved it. It's been a year and it's getting noisier and noisier, and now requires being squeezed around its throat after start up to stop the rattle. Sometimes the rattle spontaneously starts in the middle of the night which scares the whatsit out of me. I wouldn't buy the brand again. Shame...I loved it at first, I really did.
Good Value, Quite Effective
Have had this for about 6 weeks now after replacing my old pedestal fan and so far it has exceeded my expectations. Fan is pretty quiet and cools my small lounge area quite well. It comes with a remote control which is very handy which also can slot in the back of the unit for storage. There is also a night feature on it so the power lights do not light the room up if you wish to use in your bedroom.
The only negative was trying to attach the base which was a bit tricky. The fan also sits better on a flat surface rather than carpet as it can wobble slightly.
No power to it so no cool fan even in small room
I really don't like this fan and wish I'd bought a cheapie pedestal fan over this junk. I bought this fan for an upstairs bedroom along with another tower fan in a different brand, Omega Altise. This sunbeam was supposedly great for a small room (perhaps it might work in a cupboard). Comparing the two this sunbeam is junk and I'll be taking back tomorrow. Today is its first use. Its noisy in comparison but its output is just too gentle. With the noise it's making you'd expect it to work but under 1.5 meters from it and I can't feel the slightest breeze. The only plus is it does look better than some others.
Love this fan!
Best fan I've ever owned. Cools the entire room and is pretty quiet too. Night feature is great and it's super light which means it's easy to carry around the house where needed. Couldn't imagine life without it now, it saved me during the really hot days and nights we've had in Sydney. Would definitely recommend this fan!!
Suits the purpose.
I bought 2, kitchen and gym. Good in the kitchen where it's high, not so good in the gym when a low fan is required. Reasonably priced for what it is. Possibly a bit top heavy in weight for the light base, heavier/more rigid base needed. Good facilities in speed, timer & rotation.

We bought 2 of these and find them good to use. The Night switch is a good feature so no bright lights to bother you.
One has a rattle that we can't locate-somewhere in the tower. We don't use that one in the bedroom. remote control works very well.
Installing the base is straight forward until you try to put the 4 screws back in. The holes are deeply recessed and there is no room for fingers, so no way to hold the screw while it is tightened. We used tweezers!
Not bad for a cheap fan overall.
