Rated 3 out of 5Â by dble bogey NOT whisper quiet!!!
our 1st fan was the 783 and is outstanding. it's used all the time during the summer in the evenings when the air conditioner is not needed. we bought the supposedly 630 'whisper quiet' for bedroom use at night. it does the job as far as circulating air...but even at the lowest speed its certainly not quiet.....wakes me up in the middle of the night!
Rated 2 out of 5Â by CSNYC How good is it if you can't clean it?
I received the 630 model as a gift for my living room. I have a 550 in my bedroom. While the model does circulate the air, in order to remove the grill to CLEAN it, you have to remove 3 screws. The screws are at the end of an extremely NARROW, LONG hole that requires a special not your run of the mill screwdriver. After I purchased that I spent the better part of a HALF HOUR trying to get the screws out. I got 1 out of 3 and lost 45 minutes of my life I'll never get back AND I still have a filthy fan. Not happy. Won't be buying another fan that makes it so difficult to keep clean.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by ScooterGirl Didn't know fans could work so well!
Pros: Compact size for the air movement it puts out. Heavy, solid construction, nothing like cheapo fans the same size. Padding under the base ensures the unit will stay in place when placed on a slick surface. REALLY moves the air; works great as a unidirectional fan when sitting right in front of it during the hottest part of the day but truly shines when it comes to cooling things down once the sun sets, dropping the indoor temperature much more quickly and efficiently than any combination of standard fans. Very quiet on low and medium settings, only slightly louder on high. Cons: None that I can think of. Don't be fooled into thinking this is just another fan. It is not; the performance is superior to any fan and belongs in a class of its own.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Reggie Vornado Fans are - "Simply the Best"
There is no comparison to a vornado fan, they are "simply the best". They are quiet in operation, and the amount of wind they produce is phenominal. The drug store fans are what I consider disposable. My Vornado travels with us, and goes on the job when we perform service calls. Living in Arizona, I could not live without my vornado. I recently broke my fan blade, and was prepared to make another purchase. To my pleasant surprise - it was under warranty, and they shipped me a new blade at no charge. Awesome customer service!!!
