Forget The Rest This Is The Best!!! Excellent Excellent Excellent
Did alot of research on fans before purchasing and this had by far the best reviews of all so decided to purchase one. Have a chronic health condition that requires the air to be moving all the time and to lower the temperature especially in the over 25° range. This fan really does circulate the air extremely efficiently so much so that you actually feel it anywhere in the room and it works wonderfully. You can even use it with the air con to circulate the air and turn temp setting to 24° to save on energy costs and it really works to keep it c...omfortable. its so quiet you can hardly hear it on setting 1. Yes they are at the upper price range for a fan though not the most expensive and Its saved me so much money on energy bills as don't have to use air con as much it more than paid for itself in the first year. A word of warning to everyone is bladeless fans are no better than common pedestal fans and are not worth the high price you pay for them and they do not work anywhere as effectively as this fan. If you have a health condition, suffer badly with the heat and/or humidity or generally want a fan that really works do yourself a favor and buy one. Strongly recommend these to absolutely everyone. The headline says it all.
Another product worth writing a review about
I wrote a review about my Mitsubushi fridge as it just impressed me so much and years down the line it still thrills me at how well designed and functional it is, so for review number 2 I present this awesome little fan. I was close to buying the Kambrook 116cm tower fan ( KFA839GRY), my main selection criteria was for it to work well on low with minimal noise for use in the bedroom while sleeping. The Kambrook seemed to do well, although testing in a loud, air conditioned shop wasn't ideal. So I lost interest in the Kambrook due to some review...s and also noticing how flimsy it seemed, rocking on it's pedestal and a 1yr warranty. I came across the Vornado and read good and bad reviews but liked the "ideal" of it so tracked one down at a quieter David Jones. I tested the 660 and the older 633. The older model was ok but I could see the housing vibrate even at it's lowest speed, there was no noise associated with the vibration but I didn't think that bode well for the long term. The 660 didn't have this vibration and even though I'm reticent to spend $200 on a simple fan, I did just that. I've been using it for the last few days in a room that has been very hot and stuffy and previously only had a squeaky ceiling fan for comfort. Well I'm impressed! It does as it says in the advertising hype - on the lowest setting (which gives 600rpm - the lowest of all the Vornados) you can feel a very gentle breeze from most parts of the room. I have it on the floor in the corner of the room at the foot of the bed pointing toward the ceiling and the diagonal corner of the room. From here it generates a cooling breeze for all in a queen size bed. Compromises? Yes, this fan isn't whisper quiet. You can hear the air being shifted through the fan, I am annoyed by annoying sounds but have easily been able to forget this sound and sleep soundly, there's a pun in there somewhere! On any speed there is absolutely no motor noise, it's just the more air moved the greater sound this air is going to make passing through such a small fan. The only other compromise is the price, $200 for a simple motor and some plastic housing! I offset this by considering the 5 year guarantee, every other fan I looked at had 12 months. The Vornado is a simple design so would likely be so cheap to manufacture that a 5 year replacement window is just great business sense from the company. Now before buying this fan I was at a friend's place and tried out a $15 pedestal fan he bought from Bunnings and must say it was whisper quiet and I do wonder if it would have achieved the same result? It's altogether possible but I always find pedestal fans get in the way and are a battle to store, the Vornado should be easier to find a storage space for. I think the Vornado moves more air at a lower setting and allows indirect airflow over sleeping bodies. Improvements? I bought the 660 as the older one visibly vibrated on testing. It's compact but not as compact as I think it could be for a fan I will mostly use on its lowest setting. I wonder if a bedroom version that is half the size (and price) and wouldn't need the higher speeds, would be a great addition to the Vornado line up?
Impressions after a month long use.
I have been using this for over a month. The beauty of the product is, while running your are welcome by a gentile breeze, as if you have turned on your centralised air conditioner. In terms of noise it is noisier than a standard fan at full speed, but as far as I can see the noise you hear is due to the shear force of air displaced on high speed settings. At lower setting the noise is very low considering the amount of air it displaces. If your are on the look out for a whisper quite air regulator then you need to consider ducted air condition...s or split air conditioner. Even then you will still hear a slight noise unless you are prepared to invest on acoustic isolation or sound absorbers, that will be very hefty on your pocket for domestic use. You will feel the air move below your legs and furniture, drawn towards the fan. It works, of course it does not replace an air conditioner but yes does a very good job in circulating air- thus rightfully called "air circulator". On the contrary if you would like shear "air blow effect", I have not come across any other domestic fans that could deliver it like this Vornado. If you are a hobby film maker or a photographer looking for a blow fan and is looking out for a blow fan on a tight budget (will not get the same effect as a commercial grade) then look no further. Over all it keeps its promises and claims made on the package Ing at relatively realistic pricing compared to the Dyson blade less fans. I would say it could easy out perform the Dyson, especially when you compare the price tags and performance side by side.
So impressed I just ordered 2 more!
I live in a small stuffy, hot apartment on the east coast, where it is quite humid.
This fan is definately worth the money and I consider myself a tightarse.
I am super impressed with the way it cools the whole room, I'm positive the temperature drops. The space is much more comfortable.
Plus you can stand right in front of it for a blast of air if needed.
I bought from Ibuy, delivery was very prompt and the price was competitive.
I have just now ordered two more so I can have them in the bedroom and office.
I also really like the fresh white look. Living near the coast metal fans rust so I'm hoping and expecting this will hold it's looks.
I have already been recommending it to friends.
Works great and has a five year warranty
I purchased my Vornado 660 when it was on sale at Harvey Norman in Westfield Innaloo Shopping Centre. I liked the look of this fan and at the time of purchase it was on sale for $95. Even though it was on sale $95 is still a high price to pay for a small 25.8 cm bladed fan. Especially a fan that does not come with a remote control or timer. It also does not even have a carry handle so so you can move it one handed from room to room.
Any reservations I had on purchasing this expensive fan where gone after the first time I used it. This fan m...oves the air around the room really well. My ceilings are 3.6 meters high and my rooms are and the air this fan dispenses bounces back and flows throughout the whole room giving a gentle breeze. This product even comes with a 5 year warranty so there is no need to worry about planned obsolescence for some time. I am very happy with my Vornado purchase.
The most powerful fan / air circulator ever purchased.
- Circulate air to lower temperature in short period of time
- Compact & light when compared to pedestal fans which move less air
- 5 years warranty
- Could be noisy at highest setting
- Australian importer charges very high premium compared to the US counterpart (check US prices) ...
So happy I bought another of family member
Vey please with the Vornado 660 Living in the tropics it is very hot and humid this time of year. Cools my large kitchen with ease. Moved to bedroom at night as my AC was not coping with the humidity Best nights sleep in as long as I can remember Highly recommend this product, worth spending the extra dollars.
Bought this fan based on reviews. Couldn't be happier with the performance. It cools and circulates the air even on the low setting. Low and medium settings are relatively quiet but it is a bit noisy on high due to the amount of air it is pushing out. I used this on a day when it was 38 deg and it kept the room very comfortable. I think it is a bit over priced but as it comes with a 5 year warranty it might turn out to be good value for the money. It does not oscillate which is fine as you do not have to wait for it to point in your direction to get the benefit of the breeze as it relies on its design to circulate the air around the room. Looks very stylish and is very compact. Purchased from Harvey Norman.
I bought 1 x Vornado 660 Fan & Air Circulator in Gloss White from iBuys on-line. Excellent product. Great fan which I use in my study room and also one of the bedrooms. Yes agreed with the above, it does circulate air very widely and strongly. iBuys delivery was prompt. Highly recommend.
Excellent quality, very quiet
Paid $160 at Harvey Norman, cheaper than on-line. Was considering Dyson but felt it too noisy and expensive. I bought 2 fans and it really does what it says - circulates air very widely and strongly.
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.
where is the vornado fan made? which country is it manufactured?
Made in China. But very well made.
I highly recommend .
Better than any other fan I have had, and I have many.
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.
