To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The Lasko 42" Wind Curve (wih ionizer) is a very good fan and is powerful enough for 20 x 20 foot room. The tall height works well in a bedroom where one might need to feel the breeze a bit higher while laying on a high mattress. You can also adjust the top portion of the vent up or down for your needs. The remote is handy for just such an occasion as well. The Lasko was very quiet despite its powerful breeze. The base is sturdy and I have experienced no rattling.
I compared the Lasko fan to the Holmes 32" Oscillating Tower Fan and there was no comparison. The Holmes fan was too short to generate a breeze above my bed where I needed it. The power of the fan was also extremely weak in general--especially since it was being advertised as a whole house fan. Essentially, Holme's most powerful breeze was equivalent to the lowest setting on the Lasko. The interface was confusing. And there also was no remote. The Holmes base is sturdy and I experienced no rattling.
I also compared the Lasko to the Sunter 40" Tower Fan (2 Pack Combo with a 13" Personal Fan). While I preferred the look of the Lasko (the silver color made it more versatile for both dark and light color themes), the truth is, of all three, the Sunter was the most powerful--though maybe only a step above. The 40" height was still high enough to reach over the bed where I needed it. Its top portion of the vent is not adjustable up-and-down like the Lasko--but most fans don't have that feature. The Sunter was fairly quiet, but not as quiet as the Lasko. The remote appears chintzier than the Lasko's but it turns out Sunter's remote range is stronger than the Lasko's. The Sunter base is sturdy and I experienced no rattling. However, I did experience vibration and rattling with its bonus personal 13" fan that came with it.
Of all three fans, the Lasko was the easiest to assemble. I felt the Lasko was the most attractively versatile with its silver finish. Both the Lasko and Sunter have an easy interface to understand. Both were sturdy and did not rattle. The Lasko has the quietest breeze, with the Sunter a close quiet second. However, the Sunter offered the strongest breeze, with Lasko being a close second. Both were good for 20 x 20' rooms. The Lasko offers three speed settings; the Sunter offers four speed settings. Both offer timers. The Lasko offers an ionizer feature which is nice; however, the Sunter offers an interesting evening breeze feature. (The evening breeze feature tapers off the breeze to the next lowest level every half an hour as you drift off to sleep--VERY nice.)
Finally, [at the time of this review] the Lasko costs $56.52 on Amazon; while the Sunter costs $39.99 at Costco (or $44.32 on Amazon). The $16 higher price for the Lasko dramatically altered my star rating for the product down to a 4-star. And since the Sunter is fairly comparable (with a bonus fan) at a dramatically cheaper price, I am posting a 5-star for the Sunter as a best-buy.
No compren un ventilador de torre como este si buscan tener buen aire. El precio es carísimo para tan poca velocidad que maneja. El aparato es elegante y vistoso, eso sí, pero lo que uno busca es refrescarse no tomarle una foto.
Some of the reviews had me worried due to people saying putting this bad boy together was a pain. I am a barely functioning human being. If it involves me having to use a screwdriver, we're going to be in for an adventure. I was able to assemble this within 15 minutes AND without crying. It is extremely easy to put together. There are all of 4 steps.
NOW onto reviewing how well it works. I live in Louisiana. Not only is the temperature around what the fiery pits of Hell must be like. But there is also humidity to add even more fun to it. I come home to a house that is roughly around 84 degrees F at 5:30 in the evening so I needed a little help with cooling off. Within 5 minutes of turning this thing on it was like an angel had come down from heaven and began to personally blow cool air on my face. I was genuinely close to tears. If this thing only lasts a month it will have been worth the money. Also people keep mentioning the light being bright at night. It's a little bitty green light the size of a pen top, not a laser beam.
I got this fan for my mom during a massive heat wave. I had read a TON of online reviews from various credible sources that seemed to have really done their homework and the comparative reviews made it seem like this was the fan of the year. Nope. We didn't even have a true chance to assess the cooling qualities or the fan functions. The smell that this fan had was unreal. When we first opened the box and were knocked over by the chemical smell, we figured that was normal and it would dissipate with time. We left it in an open airy room for at least two weeks....even left it outside for enough time--nothing changed. And when you plugged it in and used it, the chemical smell spread throughout the room. We had to return this item. Completely sucked to go through all that trouble, and pay a very high price, for a fan that was not usable. Moreover, we didn't have a fan in the heat wave because we were giving it a chance to air out and not be hasty. Avoid the same outcome everyone.
El ventilador esta lujoso; pero advierto que las fotos de la resena en Amazon no son del modelo que se indica; este modelo en las fotos es mas moderno, ya que el instructivo marca que este modelo ofrecido (NO el de las fotos) es el mas antiguo de los 3 modelos para los que son las instrucciones.
Compre un Navia VORTEX Circulador de Aire con Accelerator con Tecnología Power Tube y hace la misma funcion por 1/3 del precio; obvio, salvo el diseno moderno y control remoto y funcion oscilatoria no avienta mas aire que este ultimo de 1/3 del precio. Ambos enfrian una sola habitacion, entonces si no necesitas ser vistoso y no tienes que estar moviendole seguido al aparato te recomiendo el mas barato en cuanto a utilidad, este seria el VORTEX.
I've had this for a full summer now, going on two. It's a smart looking fan to stick in the corner and throws a nice amount of air. I got this specifically to move air in my rather small living room and it does a fine job of it. The remote control only seems to get a command through with around 40% of the button presses and it is a little noisy for sleeping in the bedroom. My phone says it's 48dB from 3ft away on the lowest fan setting.
El Producto llego una semana antes de lo planeado. Tiene un nivel de ruido bajo, en su máxima potencia el aire llega a unos 4 metros y gira 45 grados, no 60 como dice la descripción del artículo, esta muy bonito y puede firmar parte de la sala cuidando la estética
It works perfectly fine and is quiet enough. I don’t understand some of the reviews people write here about this item. Someone’ said it sounds like turning ON a jet:: or it stinks on start up. People are weird.
