Rated 3 out of 5Â by Meridan Dissappointed
I had great expectations for my Flippi V. and it met my needs for a short while. I have to agree with other comments that it is a bit loud on the highest setting, but found that level 1 met most of my needs since the unit sat on my office desk. The Oscillation function failed after 2-3 weeks. I returned it to the store and got another unit. The oscillation failed again after only 3 weeks. (The unit never ran more than 8 hours a day if that much). I returned it to the store and now sit in my hot office again. There has to be a design or manufacturing issue here. Hopefully it will get fixed and I can try another one in the future
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Sarraf Flippi V
We have had the Flippi V for less than three months now. We purchased it for our newbornÃ¢â¬â¢s room; a fan can help prevent SIDS. It has worked flawlessly although rather loudly until today. The fan portion of the personal air circulator still works but the oscillation has stopped; it seems that this is common. When it is working this item is great; I just wish it would last longer than 2+ months before breaking. We have other Vornado fans and they have been working for years with no issues. I hope this oscillation malfunction is something that can be resolved without much of a hassle.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Vicki Love this new Flippi Fan!
Becuase we continually have moisture build-up in our bathroom despite using an exhaust fan, we decided to try our older Vornado fan. However, it doesn't swivel and does not have an adjustable head. Since we did love this older Vornado, we decided to check out the website to see if they had an oscillating fan. This Vornado Flippi seemed to be just what we needed, so we purchased it! We have had no more moisture problems in this bathroom since we started using it. Even the stale odor is gone! We love this Flippi and will be purchasing one for another bathroom soon.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gracie I am very pleased with one exception
I gave this fan 4 stars because I have one complaint. How do you take it apart to clean the fan blades and grill? I use it in my kitchen so it gets kitchen fumes build up. I have had another Vornado fan for years and it is easy to clean but it is bulky on my counter. I bought this Flippi fan last summer when I went in hospital for knee replacement. I took the fan with me to hospital and to post-op rehab. It was so convenient with the remote control. I sleep with the fan on all night for a light breeze.
