WTH is this !
absolutely shameless with the "quiet operation" printed on the box !!
it just as noisy as a vacuum, wth are they thinking when they use this as a selling point ?!
the "moves air up to 21 metres" also a false advertising, i don't know how extreme they tested, but in real life u won't be able to feel any air movements beyond 7meters.
it is working as an air circulator, but just go to Bunnings you got better options with much better prices, even buy a worksite fan that used to dry a painted wall is still better.

Makes a difference
I have 2 large Air Circulators around the house
and so I decided to buy a small one (the same brand) for the kitchen so that whilst I am cooking it will cool down the room. I am so glad I did as it makes the kitchen so much cooler.
The price is a little high but we are paying for quality here. I would recommend these air circulators to anyone.

Pricey but Worth It
Have had this unit for years now and with regular cleaning (dusting off blades and grill), it works just as new. Designed to circulate all the air in the room/space, it does take a bit of time (maybe 20 minutes) to make a noticeable difference compared to having a conventional pedestal fan pointed directly at you. It has three speed settings, the highest being on the loud side. Having it on the middle setting is comfortable with a very light hum and very good output. Living in Queensland, I use it for the most part of every day and night instea...d of switching on the A/C. If the A/C is turned on in the living room (the only A/C unit in the house), we set the Vornado up to circulate the cool air and it works great. Recommended if you're willing to pay a little extra for a fan that'll last.

Great in caravan
We live in a caravan so wanted a small fan. Seen the Vornado in Harvey Norman 4 years ago and decided it was what we needed. It has been fantastic. It runs nearly 24/7 summer and winter. In the summer it is used on its own or in conjunction with the van's a/c. In the winter used with the heating on the a/c. Is noisy on high but so is the a/c. We have no trouble sleeping whilst it is on. Have been very happy with its performance. I see they have a12 volt one now so looking at buying one for when we are off grid.

This is not a fan but an air circulator. It will cool but you need to be within its range as it doesn't oscillate
The fan has high velocity power compared to a cheap pedestal fan but the air is pushed in one direction. The idea is to use it with an airconditioner to push the cold air around. As a fan it works as a cool breeze or more powerful airflow unit but the higher the speed (1-3) the noisier due to being hi velocity by design like an aeroplane engine (its designers were from this segment). Its concept is to push the airflow to the walls where the air will bounce off and circulate (see video on Vornado). It does need to be on early to beat the heat ...and it needs to be pointed at you if being used as a fan. It is on a stable base and is expensive for what it is but you are paying for the turbo aeroplane engine style design which pushes the air forward in the vented direction.

Overpriced and nothing special.
I made the mistake of believing the hype on this one. Surely a $120 fan would be vastly superior to the $30 equivalent?! Sadly not. I use a fan at night during summer to avoid using the AC.
Air stream on lowest setting is poor. Air stream on setting 2 and 3 is good but the noise makes this impractical.
Did I mention it's LOUD!
Way overpriced. ...
SIMPLY THE BEST
I have been suffering dye to treatment to high body heat.My friend bought a vornado 533 abd loved it.I bought mine 18th.dec.2018 from harvey norman moss vale
.ITS THE BEST EVER I HAD A WONDERFUL NIGHTS SLEEP AFTER 5 MONTHS OF INTERMITTENT.AND MY BEDROOM IS COOL AND I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER.The noise is no bother and i slept with it on all night,its wonderful abd HN.has good price im getting the large one for my lounge.BIG THANKYOU.
So sorry I wasted my money.
I have a severely intellectually disabled son and I'm a single mum so money is very tight. I bought this from David Jones after the sales person recommended it and have ran it constantly on top speed for over 24 hours, it's done nothing. My place has just getting hotter and hotter. Will be returning it.
Does the job
Awesome air circulator. Does the job in my son's room. Its noisy if you put the settings or 2 and 3. All in all glad I bought this brand. Will be purchasing a bigger one soon. Easy to move around to different areas of the house. Wish it came in different colors.
Powerful but loud
Nice small size and great airflow but it's very noisy at the II & III settings. The lowest setting is good for sleeping on cooler summer nights but most nights in summer I put it on II. Fine for sleeping, but might be a bit loud for some. It's designed to circulate air in a small-medium size room, not necessarily directly blowing on you, so keep that in mind. It works well for both purposes, but the floor height can be a bit limiting.
Best small fan I've ever had
Fans power is great, costs about 5c to use and really cools down the room. One of the best fans on the market has 3 speeds and while isn't too loud the sound is definitely noticeable (ie not as quiet as some weaker fans). Says the grill is removable, but require a screwdriver and can be quite difficult to see where the screws are without looking at a video of how to do it.
A little expensive but good summer investment
I moved to Sydney in the peak of Summer and my $29 fan wasn't enough. Decided to buy the Vornado and it really did a good job in circulating air in my bedroom. I only have a tiny window and it usually gets stuffy and humid, but the vornado did a good job in keeping the room cool. It seems loud at first but liveable.
Good to use
It is good to use and small size . It can fit anywhere you want to put it . The fan speed also strong compare normally fan . Price is reasonable however , i still like more silence fan . When you sleeping , of course prefer quiet and comfortable .
Good but expensive fan
I bought this fan for my mother as a Christmas gift as she needed a fan, it is very compact like a desk top fan but very powerful as it can blow a long way from one end of the room to the other end. Level 3 is noisy though so she doesn't use that level, but she likes how small it is. It only tilts up and down and not sideways, so some effort needs to be put in to set it up and point to the right direction before walking away.
Powerful Small Fan to cool a room
Bought it during the heat wave in Melbourne 2 weeks ago, it saved our hot steamy night. It serve the purpose to cool the room and it's not too noisy unlike some other brands. It sit perfectly on the side or small table. Apart from that, the outside frame has quite a small gap between the holes to prevent my young kids to put their fingers inside. Happy customer.
