Excellent for a small room
This fan is very good. Noisy on the higher settings and it doesn’t oscillate. But does move the air around in small roomsShow details
Worst ever fan to clean
I would not recommend this fan. It is so difficult to clean. It has hidden screws and still does not fully come apart. It is so fiddly with tiny crevasses that you can never get fully clean.
I love my Vornado!
I have 3 Vornado’s and absolutely love them. The Vornado is quiet and very efficient. I did buy my son a different fan and couldn’t believe the difference. It was loud and annoying so I gave him one of mine.
If you want to move air, this is magnificent. Ten out of Ten!
I bought this a little while ago. I remember being told they were excellent so I wanted to give it a go. I was not disappointed.
On the top setting this is incredible. It is as it seems, a vortex/tornado. Quite powerful, if you want air moved at speed this is for you. It has so much thrust that on a slippery surface on full settings it can propel backward and dive off a counter. Amazing really. Just pop a material surface if using it on a slippery counter to reduce the static friction.
It has five settings if you don’t want the thrust of a je
Good flow of air but poor build quality
You heard all the good reviews from others so I'm here to tell you the bad part.
Got mine 5 years ago and now most of the buttons are now playing up. I have to press 10-20 times to turn on or off and power level 3 and 4 stopped working permanently.
Because all controls are digital you cannot use any timer or smart plug to control it (default is OFF and do not remember last state)
WAS white in colour. Yep 'was', because all plastic is now yellowish and falling apart. I only use it indoor and the plastic still failing.
The blade vibrate when the
Purchased for medium sized livingroom. Looks good enough, feels solid and really does blast out a lot of air for a reasonable amount of decibels. You can feel that bit of movement in the whole room but also can appreciate a strong column of air if you hog it to yourself and you will not need to use the higher speed settings if you do that. No swivel, no remote, not the DC version but you can spend more to get the latter two.Show details
Pushes air nicely. I can get the AC to flow into rooms it never affects otherwise. Especially since cold air sinks, and this is a floor fan that can angle up. Only design change I wouldn't mind is it starting on the last used power level. It always starts on high. Fairly expensive, but still happy.
Best fan we have had for a long long time
Looking for a fan that work when the temperature was warm but not enough to turn on the evaporative system (spot cooling in a living room) - we have a Dyson air purifier that is very good and versatile, but it oscillates and you can only feel the air as it moves from side to side - the Vornado does not oscillate but can be rotated vertically to improve the multi directional air flow - I was sceptical after having so many oscillating type pedestal fans but have to say I was more than pleasantly surprised when buying this and setting it up - the... Read morevortex fan and louvres or whatever the design is very good at circulating the air in a fairly wide stream and eliminates the problems of intermittent air flow over you with an oscillating fan. For airflow when the aircon is off, this fan is excellent - its the 660 model and has the larger fan - didn't bother paying more for the DC model (this is max. 56 watts on AC) but it may have been a more quiet fan (don't know whether the noise level is from the fan motor, the fan or both) - Have also found that when the evaporative air con is on ad using the fan in the living room, it seems to circulate the air brilliantly and actually seems to add a bit of a wind chill factor to the air flow making it very effective in cooling. The only negative I can find is that on anything higher than level 1 and 2 it is a little bit on the noisy side (not over the top noisy but its there) PROS . Very effective air distribution without oscillation . 4 speeds, push buttons, very responsive in increasing air flow . Seems to be well built
Great for circulating air around the house
Our house gets hot in some areas and stays cooler in others - the Vornado is great for circulating the cool air around. We now use the AC way less. I don't find it any noisier than a regular fan just way more powerful.Show details
Super powerful, but noisy.
After owning cheap fans for years and then buying a Dyson. I decided to splurge on this fan. Firstly it's a fan and not an air conditioner. The air feels cool because it moves cooler more dense air from the ground upwards. The 4 speed settings are a bit limiting and it's noisy even on the lowest setting. Dont buy it if you are looking for a whisper quiet fan to sleep with. This model is good for larger rooms and an oscillating feature would have been great as it just blows a narrow stream of air. Is it worth $200? Well it's a good fan with a 5 year warranty, looks nice, is compact and does the job. So far so good.Show details
Purchased my vornado after reading positive reviews. Very disappointed. I need a fan so I can sleep at night. This one is not quiet, even in the slowest setting.
Not worth the price in my option
The Vornado Outlasting Cheap Fans
My first review was a bit premature. A year later, my Vornado is still working well and has outlasted my cheap fans! However, it has gathered much dust and when trying to remove the screws from the fan cover to clean it, they have all threaded! Please put in better screws! Very hard to clean out the dust using a paintbrush!Show details
Great fan makes my room windy
Yeah it’s real good, expensive for a fan but good. My small bedroom gets windy when this is on full power and I love it. Definitely beats a budget pedestal fan.Show details
Best fan I've ever had
Read some great reviews so I bought it, cost around 180, worth every penny. It blows really cool air at a good volume in our family, dining, kitchen area, keeps that area a good 6-10 degrees cooler than other rooms in the house on a hot day. Love it!Show details
Its just a fan, nothing amazing
Purchased the vornado 660 today, 15/12/2020 from Harvey Norman for 200$. Down from 259.
Our aircon has broken and we are not able to get a repairman in until jan 2021 and its upper north Queensland so it is darn hot and humid. So we went out too purchase a fan. After researching online and all the good reviews we decided on the vornado.
This fan is no different too a 50$ fan from big w or kmart. It does not cool the whole room. It does what a fan does there is no breakthrough technology and it is way overpriced. It is a fan it works and if u... Read moresit near it you will feel cool air. But any fan does this, it is not any special or different. It is not silent the noise is the same as a regular fan. Regret spending 200$ on this when could have gone too bunnings and got an industrial fan, which would have been more powerful.
Questions & Answers
My vornado is not working. Where can I have it repaired? I live in pymble nsw
You CANNOT have it repaired. That's the whole issue with Vornado, they are only a box dropper but have NO service agents in Australia (as I got told via email by them in 12/2020). You may now throw your Vornado in the nearest bin and contribute to global pollution.
Do they also work as a fan if i was to put it on a table shooting directly at me would i get a good flow of air hit me? Im going fifo and i sleep with a fan on me everynight so want something i can travel with
Yes but it's not meant to be used like that....you need to direct it to the top corner of the room

- The Vornado 660 Air Circulator uses heavily contoured blades to churn the air into a column shape, which ultimately projects air further and helps keep everyone in the room cool
- Four fan speeds allow you to adjust how gentle or powerful you’d prefer the airflow in a room, while a multi-directional airflow ensures all sections of the room are evenly cooled
- A detachable grill allows for quick and easy cleaning
- Its small, compact size is unobtrusive, and allows this standalone fan to be placed largely out of sight, without compromising on the quality of airflow.
Feedback from reviewers:
- According to reviewers, the most appealing quality of this Vornado model is that it’s a powerful fan that does what it claims and circulates air swiftly around a room
- Sometimes reviewers found the fan to be too noisy to be left on throughout the night, while others found the noise level acceptable, if the fan is set on the lowest speed. Some even appreciated the white noise that the fan provided.
- The Vornado 660 Air Circulator costs $259, which is a little pricey for a standalone fan. However, while reviewers acknowledged this, most also expressed that this fan was worth the money.
