And its slowest setting is way too fast. There’s precious little real difference in airflow between all 3 settings. You might say it does its job too well, but i had hoped that the slowest setting would just provide a gentle breeze to move the air around the room, wheras what you get sounds like a small turboprop plane in the corner of the room.
Item works well–i would have given five stars but made from very this/cheap plastic—but the fan works as it should–actually worth slightly less than i payed–comes into its own in the very hot weather–at different areas around the house———-hoping it will last for quite a few years yet,.
After spending a night in a well known american chain hotel in the uk, where ac isn’t installed as standard so i was given one of these fans to cope with the heat, i decided to buy some for our bedrooms at home. They are quiet enough to sleep through. Buy one before i empty the shelves of them all. Here are the specifications for the BENROSS Desk Fan:
- 3 speed push button controls
- Plastic blades and housing
- Optional oscillation and tilting head
- Mesh guard
- Easy to assemble
Bought fan for my son whose south facing bedroom has been getting very hot during the heat wave. He uses it all night and most of the day and thinks its fantastic. Don’t know what he would have done without it in this hot weather.
Bought this for may daughters room 2 weeks ago. Has been a great buy, with the price i had assumed that the item would be flimsy and possible only good for a year or two. Simple to construct, easy to adjust and cheap to buy you’d be hard pressed to consider something else.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Runs too fast – too loud
- cheap looking, and expensive for what it is.
- Better than the price.
Installation was quick and simple. Made with cheap plastic but for the price i can’t complain. Have been using it for couple of weeks now so far no complaint.
When i got the fan it lacked a retaining screw and all the metal butterfly wings that hold the case in place were bent. I have a few fans and all retaining screws are eventually lost so i replaced the screw with one i had and bent the butterfly clips into place and all works very well after that. This fan shifts a lot of air and was a blessed relief during the recent hot nights. It looses two stars as i do not expect to supply the screw or that the goods need altering to work as expected, maybe i got a dud, but as i said once these niggles were fixed it’s a good fan.
Perfectly good fan for the price, does the job.
Works perfectly, very quiet and very sturdy. Not the most fancy looking of fans but how pretty can a desk fan be?. It’s a good size to be used in a room where you don’t want to sit right next to it as its powerful enough to give a nicely flowing breeze wherever you are. Cable is also a good and practical length.
Cheap looking, and expensive for what it is. Normally this size would be approx. 00 but is suppose due to weather and demand escalated prices. Not impressed but desperate at the time.
