Greatest waste of money overpriced fan

I was stupid enough to buy a second volnado fan. I open the box plugged in and it scared the hell out of me bit made this very loud clunking noise I thought it was going to fly to pieces and caused injury. I spoke to The importer and he wanted to swap it out. I explained that I had previously bought the same fan and it was one week out of warranty they would not do anything about it. Very bad customer support and very arrogant to deal with as well as bad product Show details

Overpriced and doesn't do what it says

Bought 2 for kids small bedrooms moves are around sure but doesn't cool the room like it states on the website paid $120 each so wasted money not sure why everybody raves on about how good they are seems to me they are crap and a Kmart brand fan would work better

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. Show details

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. Show details

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. Show details

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.


Compact size.

Seems robust.


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.

Vortex effect is nonsense. This fan does not perform magic.

Bottom line is buy a cheapy. Even if it breaks you can still afford to buy three more!

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.
