"Wow this badboy moves some air. It is obviously noisy to some extent due to what it is. Show me an 18" high velocity fan that is silent and I'll buy it!! On that note if you are thinking of aiming this at you while you watch tv then forget it. Unless you got a really loud tv and no kids sleeping upstairs! It cools the room and circulates air but it is not a personal fan. But as an air circulator/high velocity fan it is awesome. Screwfix offer a great price, it looks good in black and performs superbly. I'm keeping mine, that's for sure. Seems really well made and comes pre-assembled. I like screwfix and I love my new hv fan."
"We got rid of a massive old air conditioner that was too big to store but didn't want a rubbish pedestal fan.
This is a great fan, super cheap, great value for money. Really circulates the air creating a cool breeze pretty much throughout the house. The motor is very quiet, but it circulates so much air that the blades are noisy, but I don't find it intrusive at all. It might be a bit much for some people I guess, but I can sleep with it on low power. We barely have it any other setting - at the lowest setting it does an excellent job.
Also been using it to dry paint - halves your drying time.
No idea about reliability - haven't had it long.
Buy one in this hot weather - throw away your pedestal fan - this one is much better."
"Fed up with small fans which only produce a draft I bought this 18inch one. Excellent product which really does do the job. Wish I had bought one earlier. Highly recommended. Buy one. You won't be disappointed."
"Very powerful and keeps you cool would recommend bit noisy but no more than my air con unit lightweight and easy to move from room to room shame no remote control when in bed as have to get up to switch off"
"Bought this in the hope that a mass air mover would keep the house cool over the summer months. Idea was to draw in cool dawn air and displace warm overnight air from the bedrooms opening windows at opposite ends of the house. Using this fan, it worked like a dream, dropped 5 degC in 30 minutes on the lowest power setting. Overall the unit is quite 'industrial' looking but firmly put together. It's not a quiet fan but it does shift a lot of air! Very happy so far, cannot comment on reliability though."
"This fan is very powerful especially compared to some of the cheaper alternatives on the market and certainly makes the muggy nights easier to handle.
As it sits on the floor or solid surface as opposed to being a tall upright version you might worry you won't feel it if using it at night to cool the bedroom, but don't. It's so powerful on top speed that even when it is on the floor you can feel the cool air from a full 10 feet away even when you are in bed.
It comes fully assembled which is an added bonus.
As it is fairly new, it's hard to rate reliability, it works from the mains so it shouldn't have any problems, just hope it doesn't suffer in the future from the dreaded blade hitting the grill syndrome that some cheap oscillating fans do.
Rated 3 for features as it's a fan, you don't need it to be all singing all dancing, you just need it to work so that you can actually feel the difference, which this one does.
However, one additional feature that would have made this product nearly perfect is a remote control with a timer as the lead isn't very long and it's a pain to have to get up to turn it off. It's not a fan you would want to leave on all night as it is quite noisy, but it is a compromise you will be happy you made."
"This fan is fantastic. We have a portable air conditioner which is a big pain because of the hot air that blows out the back of it.
We bought this and now we never use the air con. It's incredibly powerful and move loads of air. It must shift ten times the air of a standing fan. If anything it might be too powerful for household use as paper and cards will be blown around the room.
If you want cooling down though or to get air circulating this fan is incredible."
"this fan really is a gem it has a very high velocity as stated and can be used for a lot of things such as to get the airflow going the fan has 4 modes : off on low on med on high great versatile stand allows for easy angling off the fan overall a must buy for any DIYer or home user"
"Bought this fan to have air flow and cooling in the workshop, its very powerful and the noise is not a problem. Quality is what you would expect and does not disappoint. It comes well packaged and has a decent cord length, all for a great price."
"This has to be the best fan I've ever come across, it moves an incredible amount of air and has been a life saver is the heatwave we're currently experiencing.
The only negative points about the fan are firstly, the power cord is pretty short (though you could always use an extension cord) and secondly, the fan is quite loud, especially on the highest power level. Despite that, personally, I can sleep fine with the fan on the lowest setting, which still moves more than enough air to create a pleasant, cooling draught.
I would fully recommend this fan to anyone who is sick of having fans which only seem to create a breeze in a small part of the room. This beast will blow you away, excuse the terrible pun."
