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!
Powerful and great fan
Varnado fan really does circulate air around the room. We placed the fan in our main bedroom.
-placement of the fan is very important to how it will circulate the air
-we use fan with our portable aircon, so the room becomes cool quicker.
- has 4-speed option. Max speed is very powerful.
Was a bit sceptical at first, but I was surprised by how powerful it is. Packs a punch in a small package. It circulates air very well and when you angle it at the right position (be it wall or ceiling), really moves air efficiently. We use it in conjunction with the AC and are happy with it.
Vornado 660 Fan
This fan certainly helps to circulate the air on a warm day unlike so many other fans that I have tried over many years.
I like the fact that it can be taken apart to clean the interior as well.
The power output on low is fine day and night, as I have it beside me whilst I sleep or relax in front of the television.
Not having an air conditioner over these very hot days and nights is a challenge, but this fan is certainly helping to keep myself and my Stafford as cool as is possible.
I recommend highly.
I bought from Harvey Norman who price matched within ten dollars of what Costco charge for the same item.
Not having a Costco near me, nor being a member I believe I have done as well as I could possibly do.
I love how the design of the fan. It really circulates the air in the room really well.
It is quiet when it is at the lowest settings for sleeping.
It is a little pricey and I was doubting whether it is worth it. But, yeah I am loving it so far.
Well, I'm a fan...!
This is the best appliance in my house. I *love* this fan – sorry, 'Whole Room Circulator'; it's a different concept to an ordinary fan, and, for me, works brilliantly.
But I actually haven't come here to talk about the appliance. Instead I want to tell you about the service/support.
In the manual and on the box, prominently displayed, is "We expect this product to be PERFECT. If it's not WE will make it right".
I've discovered these are not empty words. Like Insurance companies, judge them when something goes wrong.
On my 660, after having...it just three months, the circuit board (for the controls) failed. With electronics my experience is they fail in the first few months or not at all. I contacted the Australian support office (milners, in WA), and promptly received clear instructions about what to do. I had to return it via AustPost, but it was "Reply Paid" (i.e. they paid for it). Within a week they'd sent me a new one. So, now reinstated in its rightful place, my Vornado 660 is merrily whirling away in the background, almost as happy as I am in the foreground.
Purchased in September 2018.
Money well spent
We have a 2 bedroom home, and this moves the air from the air conditioned lounge room through to the bedroom and bathroom area. Keeps us cool to help sleep at night, and reduces power bills by moving air through the house.
Took us ages to make a decision - glad we bought this.
I'm a fan
I bought one of these recently to try and reduce air conditioning running costs. It's fabulous and works like a charm. I did see in a review elsewhere someone was beefing that it shoots the air out in a narrow current but that's exactly what it's meant to do.....they didn't read the instructions. This really is a top product and recommended.
Love this air circulator
I can't sleep with fans on me at night i would wake up with a cold. I bought it last year when i was staying at someone else's house until my house was ready. I love this fan i sleep with it aimed at the ceiling and get a gentle breeze bouncing down and i can leave it on all night and not get a cold. I also started using cpap machine last year and i found if i sleep with the vornado on i don't rip off my mask in the middle of the night getting hot. It literally is saving my sanity and health by keeping me cool at night with the cpap. Takes u...p no room and in the bedroom i only need it on the lowest or 2nd lowest setting. Yes it can be loud on higher settings but i find it soothing. I'm now considering getting another for my new house as i don't have air conditioning. Definately recommend.

I’m converted, this is one helluva fan. I mean, whole room air circulator.
Have been wanting something to circulate air around our main living area at home to replace our existing pedestal fans which don’t seem to do much. Heard about Vornado and was intrigued about how well a deep pitched fan blade would perform (it’s tried and tested technology, like most fans, but it has definitely been tweaked).
Tried to replicate what I saw in the Vornado promo videos using our existing pedestal fans (one Aldi Stirling stainless steel 45cm pedestal and another old MYER home brand 40cm pedestal) and found that they worked... kind...
GREAT FAN, BUT EXPENSIVE
This a very nice, almost silent fan.
the only noise is the fan blades, i cannot hear the fan, just the wind.
I got mine from The Good Guys, they matched the lowest price on the net.
My wife loves it, as on the lower setting, it is near silent white noise.
Controls are nice, construction is good quality.
Looks very modern.
I have a few properties, and usually have to buy a fan twice a year, but this one has a 5 year warranty.
I use this also to move the air conditioned air around the house, i can put one aircon on, and move it around, an hour before bed, and the air is dried out,
wind is like a beam, almost straight line, but that is ok, you can move it way back, and still get nice breeze.
Expensive. But i would buy again.

Best fan ever
We live in a double-storey townhouse in QLD and bought a Vornado for upstairs to circulate the air as we do not need to use the aircon all the time. We were so happy and impressed with it that we bought another one for downstairs and that was a year ago and we are still very happy with these fans and will not buy any other kind from now on. It might be more expensive than most fans but you’ll know why once you own one of these.
We found the best way to use it is turn the A/C on for 15-30 minutes to cool the room or house down (depending on ho...
Seriously cannot recommend these fans highly enough. And this new model is brilliant - super quiet. Had to buy as my trusty Vornado 660 died after 8 years of heavy use. I have a small one for my office space too. This is my 6th or 7th since first using them in Bermuda a 40 years ago

Best fan ever
This is my 2nd Vornado fan and both have been the best fans ever. My first Vornado switch broke, the control switch was a rotating button and it fractured. Vornado has 5 year warranty periods on their fans, yes super long, because their fans really do last. My fan was about 4.5 years old, so I took back to the store I bought it from, and I was offered a replacement to the closest available model but I opted for a slight upgrade to this press button control model.
Things I like about this fan are: it really stirs up the air in the room, it re...ally gets the air moving, creating a lovely breeze. This electronic press button model has 4 speed settings, whereas most brands have 3. I like the easy rotating head, I point it to the ceiling in winter to push the hot air from the ceiling down to the ground. In summer I leave it in front of the door and I can feel the strong breeze at the other side of the room. This fan really does circulating the air and leave other fans for dead.
Love love love this fan
Got this fan for our babys room this summer as our only air con is far in the living room. Really feel the fan even when not blowing straight at you. Great for circulating the cool aircon air down the corridor to the baby room. Can't live without it, so much more powerful than any other fan

We bought this for our new baby. This summer had a few exceptionally hot days (climate change!!) and we didnt want our baby to heat up in our house. We had gone through numerous options and decided on this particular brand and model because it is an "AIR CIRCULATOR" and not just a fan. Indeed, it worked as an air circulator! The room temperature felt tangibly cooler when you on the fan (and the fan was facing the wall!).
We are very satisfied with this product. We think of this as an investment and will be happy to get another one. Despite i...ts strength, it is relatively quiet (my baby sleeps so well in the room with it). Oh, just dont use the highest strength "IV" function - as that can get very noisy. Overall, we are very happy with this.
I purchased this fan from Costco North Lakes last month and have used it every day and night. The fan works perfectly as designed, so much more efficient than the pedestal fans and portable enough for me to take to the office and home again each day.
Initial outlay may be a wee bit high, but worth every penny.

Excellent fan, worth the cost with a 5 year warranty.
I got sick of buying 3 x $50 fans each summer, only to have them die by the end of the season. I tried taking one apart to see the issue, but they aren't made to be fixed, with sealed units an no replacement parts.
I saw the Vornado had a 5 year warranty, did the math and realised it would be better to pay upfront for something that was guaranteed to last 5 years rather than throwing out junk fans each season and adding to the worlds rubbish / landfill issues.
Wow, was I impressed when it arrived. This is better than any fan I have ever b...ought. This fan really MOVES air. We have an air conditioner in our lounge room and our Vornado pushes the lovely cold our down into our bedroom at night with ease. When moved into the lounge room. it circulates the air around the room so nicely, you can pretty much stand in any part of the room and feel the movement of the crisp air-conditioned air around you. The quality is great, we don't miss the fact that it doesn't oscillate because it's so fabulous at circulating air around the room, and it's really quiet when on speed 4, especially considering the amount of air it's moving. I'm so happy I just purchased the 533 small air circulator for my kid's room and am not disappointed. It's small but mighty! Very happy.
Awesome air circulator
I bought this air circulator after reading/watching so many reviews here and YouTube, etc. I was skeptical to give this circulator a try with our stuffy bedroom because (1) this is an expensive fan/circulator with its size (2) whether its noise can interrupt our sleep. However after using it for about a week now, I can confirm it worked far better than I expected. I placed it next to our window on hot days so we had fresh air intake and it worked like a treat. The circulator will only get noisy if you turn it on level 3 upward. Happy with my purchase and I am going to keep it!
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 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
