I bought one of these in the hopes that it is as quiet as an old woolworths desktop fan i’ve had for the last 20+ years and perfect for night sleeping. On night silent mode the motor has virtually the same quiet noise output (perfect) although you can hear that the rowenta motor is doing it with zero effort. The one big difference between the two fans is that the rowenta has a higher cfm airflow. This makes it louder if you sit closer just from the wind noise, but it’s fan(sic)tastic. Love itit deserves 5*, but i dropped one star because it came with a euro plug, so i had to chop it and stick a uk plug on it. It doesn’t stop the fan from being great, but i had to wait for a couple of days to get a plug before i could use it,being picky. . The power flex is a bit on the short side too.
It’s a good fan – rather large and although it is quieter than other fans – it is not silent. If you are expecting silence you will be disappointed – easy to sleep through however – but there is an annoying white light which illuminates during night mode which lights up the whole room – kind of defeats the object of getting a decent nights sleep – i have covered the light with a square of black insulation tape however and it’s fine. Also worth noting that it comes with a european 2 prong plug which will need chopping off and replacing with a uk socket, although i’d use a shaver adaptor before you take the original plug off to see if you like the fan in case you want a refund.
Great fan and v easy to assemble.
Excellent fan but why has it got a continental 2 pin plug on it?. There was no mention of that in the spec?.
The product arrived with a two-pin plug when it was advertised as having a usb plug. When i had difficulty putting this together, i telephoned the rowena uk help desk, only to be told that they do not sell fans in the uk and therefore provided me with the german customer services help desk. Luckily as my only german consists of ich lieber dich, and rudimentary counting skills, i was able to speak to someone who spoke my language. The fan is brilliant with the silent setting, and i had to purchase an adapter plug. I would buy this again if it was sold in the uk, but this should serve as a warning to others.
I have been looking for a large fan that runs at very low rpm to be very quiet, like a ceiling fan. This is basically an ordinary fan with an extra quiet setting. On silent night mode it is quiet (but nowhere near silent) and yet still pushes a significant volume of air. Mine sometimes starts rattling when in the most downward orientation, can be fixed by shifting the position.
- It’s good – better than a £250 Dyson – but it’s not silent
- fan I’ve had for the last 20+ years and perfect for night sleeping
- Probably not worth the money.
Extremely good quality fan very efficient and extremely quiet.
Had a dyson for a super quiet fan, this is better on it’s silent mode. Pushes more air and quieter.
I use the fan during warmer months on the quiet setting. It blows well on the quiet setting, plenty on setting 1 and a lot on setting 2. The fan is significantly quieter than fans that have not been specifically designed with noise in mind. There is a very low level hum, only just perceivable if you actively listen to the fan. They should sell this in the uk, which would save me £30 on delivery. The only minor negative point is that there is a ‘moon’ light on the base of the fan that illuminates when operating in the quiet mode. I have covered this as i’m a grown man and do not need a night light (anymore. )in short:- good at being a fan- it is quiet.
I’ve always loved rowenta, so i needed to buy the table one and it is huge. I love it and i totally recommend it.
