Rated 3 out of 5 by UKcustomer It works. It's OK.
We needed an additional fan due to the recent warm weather. We have a really nice white Dyson pedestal fan which is great - but we didn't want to spend too much money on the extra fan that we needed…so we opted for this one. It's OK. It's not a very stylish design and it looks a bit cheap - but it works. It's not too loud so we can sleep with it on. In fact, it's probably more powerful than a tower fan. The cord/cable is too short which is pretty annoying. I guess you get what you pay for. It'll spend most of the year stored in the basement anyway. This fan does a fine job but you won't fall in love with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Honeypoppy3 Very disappointed
As my old very basic fan on his last legs which was purchased from JL about 20 yrs ago purchased this fan last Saturday from BluwprwaterJL and had to take it back on Sunday as parts were missing and got a replacement. I was looking forward to using the fan on Sunday night and really disappointed, the lead was too short, so I couldn't put it corner on the room had to put it in the middle, extra blades didn't give extra air flow or reach when I am in bed, the height adjustment too low. Also it's not steady very flimsy Overall this fan is a waste of money and didn't come upto standed. My old fan gives much better air flow and very steady. Will not recomdend it. Hope I can return it and re select. My daughters desk fan (nsk'uk sfc) gives much better air flow also purchased from JL. Its a shame they don't make a pedestal one on the same range as I have the large size as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PeterJM Disappointed
Not very impressed with this fan though it does do the job of blowing some air around. The bottom half is lightweight and the top is quite heavy. This results in the whole fan becoming unstable.
Bought a tower fan for cheaper price last year which was much better. This one takes up a lot of space, is not very nice to look at and makes a lot more noise than I anticipated.
Definitely would not recommend for households with pets or small children as it is so likely to fall over a lot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jalbs Quality fan
This fan works really well and is worth the price paid. The dual blades help to circulate more air - and similar to other reviewers, I've found the first setting to be plenty adequate at cooling down a room. The fan has a remote control, which works well, and a timer so you can turn it off half way through the night. In terms of noise, fans are noisy - so I find it hard to evaluate how loud this one is in comparison to others. But, I sleep fine with it on. Overall, a good purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MrsC456 great airflow but noisier than expected
I purchased this after reading one review that indicated it was good for bedroom & another that it was quiet. I could not use this at night as it is too noisy for that for me - down to personal preferrences. It does have a sleep mode but the constant changing of airflow (and noise) as it repeats the cycle would keep me awake more than the heat. I am pleased with the fan but will only use it in my workroom where I have a sewing machine on the go. It is marginally noisier than my old fan but this Boinaire does have much better airflow even at the lower setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Coolcat1 Well worth it!
After sweltering in this heatwave with normal fans in the lounge and bedroom, this doesn't disappoint! The dual blades really do give an increased and cooler air flow - and I've only got it on the first setting yet. Hopefully tonight sleep will be possible in our bedroom, which was measuring 90degrees F last few days - even with a large, normal single blade pedestal fan on max setting.
So glad I got two while they were available, the other is in my husband's home office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by spindlewood2 Excellent Product
The quality and performance of this pedestal fan more than equals its price. Arrived in a well packed box, and the small amount of self assembly required was accomplished within 5 minutes. The fan has enough operational features to please anyone, and is certainly quieter than similar fans I have used previously.
Overall I would describe this fan as well designed, well built and well worth it's price.
