Surprisingly works better than our air-con
In our new open space rental unit, the dining area is the area closest to the outside wall going to the veranda, because of this, the air-con was unfortunately installed right on top of our dining table facing the kitchen across the the other side. It struggles to push it's cooling to it's left for the lounge room so we bought the Vornado 660. Reading a lot of reviews beforehand, was sceptical about it's "air-circulating" capacity but from the minute we powered it on, all the good reviews were right, that this beast REALLY circulates air and yo...u can feel it on your skin. Just need strategically position it in a corner of an area and direct it upwards to the opposite corner and it will just never-endingly circulate cold breeze in your house/room. We were surprised that it actually works better than our air-con in cooling the house. When used in the bedroom, you would feel an even stronger breeze, I guess because of the smaller area and perfectly square shape of the room. The breeze from the Vornado reminds me of the cools winds that I used to enjoy while standing under a tree/shade in the playground of my primary school.
The fan is powerful and everyone who experienced it loves it. Its noise is not annoying and I have seen a friend using it to cover the noise from outside. Its selection of wind power can satisfy different needs. It doesn’t come with a remote control which is kinda inconvenient .
Love this Fan!
You get what you pay for and the vornado is money well spent. Four speed settings and fan blows air strongly once placed properly would make you feel there is a breeze inside the house. Initially had tower fans but after using the vornado for a couple of weeks, we had to replace our other fans in the house with vornado's. love this product
Circulates air around the whole room!
This fan is small but powerful. It is able to circulate air around the whole room. You are able to feel air come from the other side of the room.
Its sound production is okay.
Not too loud but produces a sound you would except of a fan that is able to circulate air around the whole room.
Would like to see the fan have slower fan options as minimum speeds can be relatively high.
Vornado the tornado!
This fan really lives up to its name. It creates a really strong and powerful fan speed, which is great for those warm days here in Victoria. It is easy to use and doesn't take up that much space. I was previously using a cheap fan previously, but this takes the cake.
Powerful if placed correctly
I was recommended this model by a friend and am happy with my purchase so far. Love the aesthetics of the unit and the small size is perfect for mobility from room to room. You need to play around with the placement to maximise the air circulation. I've found the best location generally is on the floor of one corner of the room angled to face the opposite corner ceiling, but definitely adjust to suit your room.
One of my main concerns when on the market for a fan/air circulator was the noise level as I wanted to keep it on during the night. H...
Great circulator, beats normal fans by miles
Very satisfied with this fan. It is a bit on the louder side but I can get used to the sound and sleep through it. Has various speed settings, but note that it does not have a remote or timer function.
I can aim this fan in any direction in the room and wherever I sit, I can feel the air being pulled around my body. Also has a slight wind chill effect. This beats normal fans by miles as normal fans you can only feel the breeze when its blowing at your direction. I normally only use the lowest setting and its enough to cool me down.
Totally satisfied with the power of this fan. It moves the air around the whole room. For such a small size this fan is amazing. If you want the best fan (that is not a large industrial one) get this one & you will not be disappointed. Very happy I fully recommend it.
I’ve tried a few fans over the last few years, from cheap home brand to more expensive tower fan. This is the best one so far.its amazing. Its small, but powerful enough to blows air strongly to whole room. I find it a bit noisy though...But I’m so happy with the performance that I bought another 2 for other rooms.
I love this fan, it's the only thing that lets me sleep on hot summer nights. It has an astonishing strength and seems to turn my room into a wind tunnel, but is insanely quiet for what it does. It is well built and very sturdy, and has been machined well. I use it in my room and also to move heat out of my window when it gets late and cooler outside, highly recommend, you will 100% not regret it. Stronger than most ceiling fans and standing fans.
Literally the best fan ever
The fan is the most incredible fan I've ever bought. No aircon in our house so have always used cheap fans but this fan actually blows air strongly, and not even that loud. I actually feel cool at night and I leave it on when I sleep. Super satisfied with this buy.
I'm a big fan.
This fan is amazing. Whenever I am at somebody else's house and they have a cheap fan running I pity them. They do not know the true glory of a Vornado blowing a ridiculous amount of air around the room (or directly at you when it's hot enough) Have had it for a couple of years and still works perfectly. Highly recommended

Good air circulator
Money well spent. Four speed settings; however there is a significant difference in air flow between 3 and 4. Probably better off with 5 speeds with a speed in between the current 3 and 4. Nonetheless, it moves a lot of air. I've used it to circulate air flow from the AC throughout the house and works well. Saves me from turning on the rest of the AC in the house.
I had doubt when I purchased this fan due to its high price. However, now my doubts is gone after a month of use. It does its job amazingly well. It is reasonablely quiet when running at full speed and it moves the air around efficiently. I highly recommend it
Happy with its performance
We purchased this to assist in circulating the cool air in our business, happy to say it does its job well. I don't quite notice the fan noise as it is generally positioned in a busy environment. Due to the heat in SA, this has helped circulate the cool air from the AC to work more efficiently. Do not expect this to cool down a room without the help of a real Air conditioner.
Value for its performance
The Vornado 660 floor fan is very powerful, it lives up to its name being an air circulator. I have owned a couple of tower fans and normal oscillating fans but this fan literally blows everything else out of the water. It is extremely great at its job despite the high price tag on it, but it will be worth your every cent. However, it may be pretty loud when running at maximum settings, given the amount of air it pushes out!
fantastic. best fan ever.
truly great fan. use it in a large ( 42m2 ) high set bedroom with windows and doors open. fan in one corner aimed midway up the wall in far corner. moves and circulates the air really well. don't like aircon so always use fans but have never had a fan like the vornado. normally only need to run it on #2 setting. does not impact sleep. max setting really moves the air but can be a little noisy. neat looking fan that does everything its supposed to do. researched the vornado well before i bought it. found it had been used in the southern states of the usa since the late 1930's. families just keep coming back and buying the vornado. may be a little pricey compared with the standard fan but this is a quality unit that is well worth the money.

This well designed fan on the high setting, helps to push the hot air out of my open plan lounge when I get home. On the second setting it boosted the effectiveness my aircon on those sweltering hot December days. On the lowest setting I use it in the bedroom and point it at the ceiling over my bed so that a soft air movement keeps me comfortable. When I had it directed at the bed I was too cold. Too keep it clean it is best set up on a low stool, away from carpet dust. The instructions are concise and the 5 year warranty gives me confidence in my purchase.
As good as it gets for what it does and tough
Understand what it is. It is very good at what it does. This WILL circulate and mix the air in your house. It can help with moving air from aircon at one end or from open windows. It moves a massive amount of air. it's designed to move air, so it's not a cooling fan. It has a wide range of speed and a sound levels, so you will find a setting that suits. If you want a cooling fan, it probably won't work for you.
True air circulation from a fan! Yes you heard that right!!
I bought 2 Vornado air circulators on sale at Costco! These air circulators hands down beat Dyson air multipliers. I have an AM07 tower fan and sadly the AM07 is honestly a waste of money. It simply cannot compete with the sheer cubic feet per minute and vortex air action that is generated by the powerful fan blades and motor of the Vornado 660. It is the reason why this fan is labelled an air circulator because if you aim the beam of air at the corner of a room, it creates a vortex of air that bounces off the walls to create a constant movemen...t of air in the entire room. I know the Vornado RRP is quite steep for a fan but honestly it is worth it. Vornado hands down will beat any Dyson fan or any other fan for that matter. It still doesn’t beat true AC, however, using an air circulator in conjunction with an AC will help provide entire room comfort and help move air into other parts of your room or home due to the powerful turbine like motor! Do yourself a favour. Get one! Yes, its initial outlay of $229 RRP for a so called fan is quite steep, but it honestly is worth it and will truly provide you comfort during those days where you need to push hot air out of your room/lounge room. Just remember to aim the beam of air to the corner of a room and angle it to the point where you start to feel the air circulate around you. oh and you can also use these air circulators in winter too! Use it to help circulate warm air around your home. Do yourself a favour and invest in Vornado!!
