Fan circulates less air than fans a fraction of it's price
from Dallas, TX
Comments about Vornado 8" Retro Table Fan - Green:
The fan barely moves any air. To call this a whole room circulator is completely dishonest. An ordinary 20 dollar fan can easily out perform this product. The breeze generated from this fan extends 4 or 5 feet at best and completely diminishes after that. The fan at the two lowest settings generates just enough wind to blow out a match. While it has a nice retro look and appears solidly constructed, it is totally impractical if you want to use it other than as a low powered desk fan.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Finally a high quality all Steel constructed Classic fan!!
By Larry the Product man
from Edmonton, AB
I love this very high quality and retro looking fan. It has three speeds and puts out for a small fan. I will likely last 40 years! No more plastic fan that is cheap and ends up in the landfill, This is a 'lifetime' fan. Only has a 5 year warranty, but it will last, and look great too!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
from San Francisco, CA
This fan is powerful, quiet, and cute; everything I was looking for! It helps cool down the house during the day and on particularly warm nights I'll put it on low in the bedroom where the white noise is also appreciated. I like that it's small enough to put on a table or kitchen counter and to move it easily from room to room. The chrome finish works well with our minimalist decor, and it always draws appreciative comments from guests. My husband finds it a little loud for his taste when on the highest setting but the sound doesn't bother me. Thanks, Vornado, for making the fan of my dreams!
I have three
I have three and will by more , I like the QUIET running ones. All of the fans move all the air in the room without blowing you away .
This fan works great for small rooms like bedrooms or bathrooms. We have it about 10 feet from the bed and can feel it even on the lowest setting. It is also very quiet which is nice. I would definitely recommend this fan.

Quality item, for the most part
from Salt Lake City, UT
This fan has a very solid and substantial feel to it. There is nothing flimsy about it. I have it on a table directed toward my living room and I can feel it up to about ten feet away. I need to move it around to find the best location. It did come with a couple of small surface scratches on the gray housing around the fan motor. They're only cosmetic, but this probably shouldn't have passed final inspection.

This has a good solid feel to it and I particularly like the green color. It works well.

Fan letter for a fan
from Berkeley, CA
When I saw this fan, it blew me away. The color isn't accurately captured on this website; in reality it's a deeper mossy color, a color that takes retro a step further. Sitting in the store where I found it, no object could look more out of place. This fan belongs in an Iowa farmhouse, or in a Vermont country store. I'd have bought it even if it didn't work, because of its iconic looks and workmanship. It truly belongs in the Museum of Modern Art for its flawless industrial design. But enough about appearances. It's a powerful fan that pivots to any position. It's a perfect size to fit into my small cottage and yet deliver airflow I'd expect from something 3 times its size. It sounds like an old school fan, a great white noise. And although I haven't cleaned it yet, it appears to have been thoughtfully designed to maximize cleaning the blades and inner body.This fan is a home run and a true breath of fresh air. Or, more accurately, a most welcome blast from the past.

This fan is comprised of high grade materials and functions just as good as it looks. What a great product. Vornado > Tornado.
I bought mine at a specialty store and I use it at the school where I work. When you put it on high, you can feel it everywhere in the room. That is great, especially with 25 kids and a teacher in the room! Great fan!!!
