Honeywell HSF600WE Advanced Quietset Oscillating Stand Fan : Not the quietest as claimed

The honeywell hsf600we advanced quietset oscillating stand fan is very easy to assemble and needs no special tools. I was able to do it quickly and without a fuss. The height is adjustable and the base is reassuringly solid. The controls are simple and self-explanatory. There is a remote control module that clips into the back of the fand stand. The unit is well-made and looks smart. 8m but in use it feels less because of where the cable joins into the fan stand. The oscillation is a good width. The buttons on the front of the stand control the functions.

This arrives boxed and when you take it out you will need to assemble , the instructions to do so are in the manual but are quite small and not totally clear but after 5 minutes of thought it went together quite easily once i realised the bent metal part on the bottom of the upright needed to be undone first no tools were needed to assemble. Once assembled onto the nicely weighted base which makes the unit very stable we turned it on with the remote control (batteries included x2 aaa) the fan started up it has 5 settings and the fasted makes quite the breeze, it’s very cooling and not noisy although not quiet but you can easily watch tv with it on without turning it up, on the lowest setting it is very quiet and you could sleep with this on, even me who is very noise sensitive. The unit adjusts easily with a twist to move it up and down and the top oscillates very well, the only slight consern was with the fan head which tips up and down, the head is heavy and it sometimes slips downward in use but this wasn’t something that bothered me personally. Overall this is a good quality fan, the remote is a bit tight when you put it into the back of the unit but i hope this will loosen a little with time, it certainly shifts some air about and it’s good to be able to see the settings lit up onthe front panel. Just what we needed for this heatwave.

As described, this is very quiet & on low settings, which give a powerful cool breeze, it doesn’t distract from hearing the tv or getting to sleep. Solid build quality, not flimsy at all but maybe a little overpriced?. Remote control is a great bonus.

Couldn’t be happier with this fan. First of all i think this may be the first fan i’ve ever had to put together that literally didn’t require any tools whatsoever. The base has a sort of allen key tool built o to it so didn’t need a screw for that, the rest of the parts all pretty much just screw on to each other by twisting by hand. The trickiest part of building the unit has to be the tiny little screw that goes at the top of the cage for the fan blades – it’s so tiny i literally couldn’t grip it with my long nails so had to get someone else with no nails to do it for me. The fan has four speeds, the highest being decently quiet. So far haven’t run into the noise issues other customers have. Remote works well, but i did note that unlike the previous honeywell fans i’ve owned (two) this one does not allow you to choose the oscillate function from the fan – this has to be turned on manually. It’s not a huge deal, and to be honest, my previous two honeywell fans actually were iffy with the oscillating function anyway as once it’d been turned on by the remote, the only way to turn it off was to do it manually by getting up. A small thing but might be important to mention in case this is for someone disabled or a person that doesn’t want to get up in the night to turn oscillating on (or off) that the remote doesn’t do either. The only buttons on the remote seem to be on/off, speed control and timer.

  • This fan is fantastic! Even on the maximum setting it is so
  • Better than the black QuietSet
  • Good fan, slightly overpriced

Honeywell HSF600WE Advanced Quietset Oscillating Stand Fan with Noise Reduction Technology

  • Noise reduction technology- new aerodynamic blade and diffusion cone design delivers whole room cooling with more power and less noise 
  • Timer allows user to program fan for 1, 2, 4 or 8 hours cooling and shut-off. Remote control can be stored on the fan
  • Dimming light for night time use
  • Adjustable height (100-120 cm)
  • Oscillation (70°) for wide area

Bought this as it claims to be the quietest, however it creaks and clicks when oscillating on all speeds. But not worth paying £80 for imo.

Good quality if not rather expensive fan. Admittedly it is quieter when watching the telly than the old fan but is it worth 4 x the cost for the slight reduction in volume. I guess its worth a little extra as it has a remote control so can change the speed without going to the fani guess its worth the extra as i purchased 2 and were not sending them back.

This fan really kicks out a good kick of cold, refreshing air and the fact is has a remote is great. A couple of negative points (not enough to drop a star), you cannot change the ‘rotate or stay’ with the remote, and for this price you could buy a small a/c unit.

I brought a £350 dyson fan which i sent back as it simply wasn’t powerful enough. I replaced it with the honeywell which is not as sleek and modern looking as the dyson but does a far superior job. In fact, the honeywell throws out more air on its lowest setting than the dyson did on its highest and is amazingly quiet in the process. This is certainly the best fan i have ever owned. Its not the cheepest you can buy but with its remote control, ease of use, power and quietness is great value for money. One word of caution and the reason i didnt give it 5 stars. As mentioned by someone else, in its box the rear grill turned itself slightly inside out. Therefore once assembled the fan would touch the front grill and not rotate. I very nearly returned it as a result and it was only reading that someone else experienced the same problem and found the solution that i got it working. Honeywell really need to address this problem in its packaging.

This honeywell hsf advanced quietset oscillating stand fan is ideal for medium to larger domestic rooms – it’s an impressive size and you can adjust the height from 100 to 120cm. The unit features a 36cm fan (that’s the diameter of the fan rather than the housing). You can control the fan via the supplied remote (which comes with 2 aaa cells) or the illuminated control panel on the stem. The fan has 5 speeds plus an oscillation function, plus you can manually adjust the vertical head angle and there’s a timer. The uk main lead/plug is a decent length. This is no low profile fan weighing in at over 6kg and standing over 120-cm high. Out of the box, despite the smallish visual only instructions, it was easy enough to assemble but i’m used to doing that sort of thing. If the unit was delivered to my 85 year old relative they might need some help. Once assembled the unit is stable and the blades are protected by a decent grille which you can open for cleaning. The controls are easy to operate although, given the attention paid to making the controls on the stem visible, the remote is a bit basic with control over on/off, speed and the timer (in incremnents of 1,2, 4 and 8 hours) but you can’t control the oscillation function which is a bit irritating.

This fan was easy for me to assemble without a single glance at the instructions. Even if you find yourself needing to check them, it’s a simple process. Once built, it’s a fine looking, sturdy model. With the weather being as hot as it’s ever been in most our lifetimes, this will be getting a lot of use, including during the night. If for some reason, you wish to use the timer so it turns itself off in the middle of the night, this is a simple button press. The most important task for any fan is to produce a cooling flow with as little noise as possible. The hsf600we is duly quiet on the lowest two settings, and the noise it does make is a calming whir. On higher settings, the noise still isn’t annoying, but even during these horribly humid summer nights, the lower two settings ought to suffice in the bedroom anyway. The footprint isn’t quite as small as a tower fan but the base is smaller than my previous one. Beyond the five speeds, 70˚ oscillation and timer, there are no other functions which you might find in other models such as variable flow.

This has to be the quietest fan i have experienced. I would have no trouble running it all night on any of its fivr speeds. The lowest is whisper quiet. You will have to assemble it on arrival, but that involves no tools unless you widh to make the tiny bolt at the top extra secure. Everything else is hand tight. As wel as five speeds, the fan head can tilt, plus you can get it to pan left to right. There is also a timer, say to run it overnight. You also get a circular remote which fits neatly into the rear of the motor when not in use. The height is adjustable, yhe only feature i have my doubts about, because you twist to lovk and unlock, and my experience is that twist locks invariably eventually fail. I would prefer something more positive.

Even on the maximum setting it is so quiet you cannot quite believe it. Very easy to assemble, very good quality, powerful air flow and worth the hefty price tag.

The honeywell hsf600we advanced quietset oscillating stand fan with noise reduction technology is rather good. It took about 10 minuites to assemble – the hardest bit making the tiny screw fit into the tiny hole at the 12 o’ clock position on the outer fan grille which took the wind out of me a bit. The instructions that this comes with are reasonable and did help when i got stuck- but generally putting this together is pretty intuitive. But when it was all complete i was blown away by just how quiet this is (we could actually hear the tv ) whilst enjoying the full power of the 70 degree oscellation span. There is a remote control so you can change the power level up and down without moving from your chair. The remote control comes with two aaa batteries. The blue light which indicates which of the four power settings you are on dims after a few seconds – in case you want to use this in a darkened room and go to sleep. And if you do, the remote control allows you to set a simple timer for it to swich off – with absolutely no fuss whatsoerver. I am writing this in the midst of what historians and star trek captains will come to call the ‘great heatwave of 2018’. It is 33 degrees outside, so this is a very welcome addition to our home.

As we swelter in what seems like a long hot summer, this fan has really impressed. Ideal as a bedroom fan, on the lowest setting it is whisper quiet whilst still putting out a reasonable stream of air. The remote which controls the 5 settings plus timer control nicely complete the package. About the only improvement i could suggest would be to make the oscilation remote as well – that is just a normal push / pull switch on the fan itself. Easy to put together, this feels very substantial (which might be a down side if you want to frequently move it around. Overall: i am very impressed.

Very easy to assemble and quite well designed. Some aspects like the height are a bit tricky initially – you need to get it in the right place before twisting to lock it else it unlocks easily. The remote is very useful for not having to get up. Pity you can’t remotely control the height and oscillation – maybe future ones will allow these. The three speed fan is adequate for an average room and with the 16″ fan diameter shifts a fair amount of air. It has a timer which might be useful. To sum up, not a bad fan atall. But for the money, i think it is overpriced. I can buy a good 16″ fan from various well known outlets for £15 to £20 and they last a good few years.

This has an adjustable height which we found easy to use and set and it goes pretty high. The remote control is easy to use as its just a 1 button pressing. Its easy enough to set up the timer also, 3 settings, 2 hours 6 hours or 8 hours. Very, very quiet when in use which ever speed setting you choose. What we loved the most in this heatwave time in the uk at the moment is the area that the fan seems to cover. . We found that on oscillation mode this fan covered a 2 sofa area really well especially when up against other fans that we have. This is a brilliant fan and i thoroughly recommend it.

Fantastic and so peaceful when compared to my old fan. Awesome nights sleep now remaining significantly liked.

I in the beginning bought a £35 fan but it was so loud and plasticy that i returned it and resolved to shell out much more on what i hoped was properly made and quieter. This fan is strong, the foundation is large and it’s effortless to assemble. And it is so tranquil, best for bedrooms.

Probably i am outdated fashioned, but i like a fan to appear like a fan, not a futuristic model tower block. With this top quality merchandise from honeywell, i truly feel i have bought the greatest of all worlds. It not only appears like a fan, it actually is whisper silent and features versatility of procedure and adjustment to fulfill differing personal requirements. It does need some assembling from the box, but the establish is rather intuitive and it can be all set to go in ten minutes. A tiny star screwdriver is all you will need, and this is only for a tiny securing nut and bolt at the best of the fan addresses. You can decide on to work it manually or by suggests of a compact, really mild and economical distant manage for which batteries are provided. It is top adjustable (increase and twist to protected) and can be established to oscillate (swivel about) or not. It has five speeds to choose from and a trusted timer featuring functions lasting one, 2, four or eight hours ahead of switching off automatically. Weighing close to 1 stone, it is rather moveable and simple to shift about.

There is one particular small detail you could not like about this fan and that’s the body weight. It has a nice hefty circular base that stops it from tilting or wobbling about. It is uncomplicated to place collectively. Ot has some awesome straightforward to use timing features like off right after one,two,four and eight hours. It has a rest manner which is pretty quiet but in all honesty, even in max great and this blowong a gale it’s still seriously quiet. In contrast to the other fanes in my house this is just wonderful. The only other factor is thw height adjuster. Not the usual screw tightening but a single twist. So peak variation is not wonderful. On the other hand all explained and completed, i’d get one of these about any other fan i have.

1st off, i’d strongly propose acquiring a fan right before the heatwave starts off in earnest. Depart it much too late, and they are as uncommon as hen’s tooth. I do the job in retail and more than the earlier several weeks of the latest heatwave i’ve lost count of the amount of times i’ve had to say: ‘sorry, we marketed out weeks ago’. Anyway, even though it’s uncommon in this place that we need a fan, the heatwave of ’18 (as it will be surely recognized), proves that each and every property really should have 1. We dwell in a stone-built residence and the upstairs seriously retains the heat. So a fan at night is critical. This honeywell has a number of options, but essential amongst these for me is the assert that it can be extremely tranquil. As i previously have a honeywell to assess it to, i can report that it is an advancement, but probably not as significantly as i had hoped. I’m concerned it is really nowhere shut to dyson-amounts of tranquil, though i recognize the price variance is enormous. The remote operates well, nevertheless it truly is a shame it will not contain the handle for the oscillating functionality.

      It made a slight clicking sound so my husband had to adjust it by adding a cable tie. Not really what you expect when the fan is as expensive as it is. Either way been working perfectly apart from that.

    Each one now creaks horribly when it oscillates. I’ve worked out that the problem is that the internal power cable is stretched too tightly, and it accordingly rubs against the structure – causing creaking – whenever the fan oscillates. For a product marketed as being quiet and costing nearly £90, this simply is not good enough.

         let’s cut straight to the chase. Although the honeywell looks nice, with its subdued white colour scheme and a general appearance that doesn’t attract attention to itself, the only reason you would pay over the odds for the honeywell vs an equivalent 16 inch fan-on-a-stand is the noise. So i recorded the honeywell in operation vs a cheaper but equivalent fan; the prem-i-air 16 inch fan (b000rpitkq). You can hear them both by playing the included video. The honeywell is definitely quieter. It appears to muffle the sound of the motor, (which makes it quieter at low speed levels), and the fan blades create less turbulence noise (which makes a large difference at higher speed levels). Few things to note;we used the honeywell over the hot summer 2018, and used it in our bedroom at night for a good two months before writing this review. The honeywell was definitely quieter but neither fan was silent. The honeywell is quieter because it is a lot deeper, whereas the prem-i-air (and cheaper fans in general) has a more higher pitched whine. Both fans put out the same airflow at the highest setting.

    I did really quite like this fan, it’s solid and seems quite high quality but after less than 2 weeks (has run for around 100 hours at most), it’s started making a loud humming noise that’s getting worse. As i bought this for use overnight, it’s reached a point where it’s too noisy to sleep with. I don’t have the box anymore so i’m stuck with it. Giving it 2 stars because it’s marketed as a low noise fan, and it was for a few days, but has turned into one of the noisiest fans i’ve ever owned.

    We’ve been using this for around a month now; it’s great and i’ll get another one next year for the top room which gets too hot in the summer. I found assembly reasonably straight-forward, although i did need to look at the pictures on the box a couple of times for clarification. The main attraction of the fan is the claimed low noise and i have to say i’m very impressed; on its lowest setting it shifts a reasonable amount of air in ‘almost silence’, certainly good enough for a bedroom. On its higher settings noise does increase but not significantly and the oscillating feature is very welcome. The remote works well and is very useful wherever the fan is sited. It stores in the back of the fan in a circular recess; i popped it in there and couldn’t get it out without the use of a small screwdriver. Not sure if it was my fault but i won’t be putting it back there until i put the fan away for storage. Well the fan blade cover is held together by four clips making it easy to get access to the blade and give it a clean). There’s a small nut and bolt to fit through the cover at 12 o’clock. Couldn’t find a mention of this in the instructions (maybe my eyesight?), but i found it quite fiddly to get it in the hole; i imagine it’s a security feature to stop inquisitive children from accessing a fast-rotating fan blade?anyway, it meets it key functions of moving air quietly and it certainly does that.

        It is quieter than my dyson fan and about a third of the price, and the only negative is the bladed type of fan does require more cleaning, over time, and the base is quite large so you might be slightly limited in terms of where the fan can be placed. The dyson has a small circular base and can be put on a table – that would very dangerous with something heavy and more easily unbalanced like this fan. Not fair to expect perfection at this price, but realistically, the power of the fan combined with how much quieter this is when compared to old-bladed types, make this a very good purchase.

    Simple to assemble even without instructions, it must be noted that this is quite heavy, so if you’re purchasing for someone who is older or frail, i’d recommend giving assistance all the way until it’s installed where it needs to be. The fan has a varying height stand which locks in place by twisting the mechanism. My other half is not keen on this, but i prefer anything that reduces screws or further mechanisms on a device. There are 5 speed settings on this, and a timer which is perfect if you don’t want the fan running through the night. The speed settings vary by small degrees, but they’re more than enough, especially in the heat of summer 2018the remote works well and is great when you wake up in the middle of the night wanting to change settings, but not wanting to sacrifice your most comfortable of sleeping positionsthe noise levels compared to our old fan is amazing – it’s almost as if it’s not there.

      • What's this? says:
        During the recent hot spell this stand fan proved to be a great choice. There was some assembly necessary from the box, but nothing too demanding and it didn’t take long before it was in use. It is height adjustable with the simple twist of the stand which makes it suitable for setting just how you want it, especially since the fan itself can be tilted too. There are 5 speed settings with the lowest being a great choice for night-time (when i prefer less airflow) especially since it is quiet in operation; i’ve been leaving it to run all night on this setting with the oscillation turned off so that it is even quieter. The highest speed is surprisingly powerful and can certainly be felt at quite a distance from the fan itself. There is a timer which can prove useful, but more importantly there is a remote control which mounts conveniently on the back of the fan when not in use. It is the perfect way to change the settings on the fan (or even turn it off) without getting out of bed. I’ve been very impressed with this fan, and haven’t noticed any negative points with it.

        I got this sent to my eldest’s daughters flat in london where i was visiting during the current heatwave. Her modern flat with large windows, no shutters or roof shading and with only tiny upper openable windows was like an oven with no breeze through. For someone like me who really struggles in the heat it was a veritable hell and her stainless steel igenix desk fan was rattling and just not cutting it in making a change in the room temperature. This fan helped change that. It was very easy to assemble from the printed icon leaflet and the fact that it has a stand is useful in not having to find a chair or drawer top space to put it on and cuts down on rattle and movement. It is light so easily movable from lounge to bedroom. The blades are plastic and seem quite small but never fear they do pack a punch. There are 5 levels of spin speed rather than the usual 3 on fans. I really liked the sleep mode level – although still noisy the sleep mode is much quieter than any other oscillating fan i have used in the past. However, the middle levels of spin had less definition than the upper and lower levels.

    I got this sent to my eldest’s daughters flat in london where i was visiting during the current heatwave. Her modern flat with large windows, no shutters or roof shading and with only tiny upper openable windows was like an oven with no breeze through. For someone like me who really struggles in the heat it was a veritable hell and her stainless steel igenix desk fan was rattling and just not cutting it in making a change in the room temperature. This fan helped change that. It was very easy to assemble from the printed icon leaflet and the fact that it has a stand is useful in not having to find a chair or drawer top space to put it on and cuts down on rattle and movement. It is light so easily movable from lounge to bedroom. The blades are plastic and seem quite small but never fear they do pack a punch.

    The fan has a very heavy, sturdy base that means it doesn’t wobble. I’m not overly impressed by the quietness of it, but all fans make noise (even dyson’s blade-less ones) and i quite like the sound anyway. The blades will accumulate dust over time and there’s really nothing you can do about it apart from disassembling the thing and cleaning them properly. The only thing is it’s a bit plasticky and old school. Compared to some fans, it isn’t compact or modern-looking. The remote control, too, is nothing to write home about. But it does the job, which is the important thing, and the price is reasonable considering the size of the device.

    This fan is the quietest one we’ve tried. We’ve had a few, as my step-son uses them in his gym and they tend to get battered in there, but this one is going to stay in the house. Of the ones we’ve had, it’s closest to this one (we’ve had a few of these for the gym):prem-i-air 18″(49 cm) black/silver oscillating pedestal hv fan with 3 speed settings and extra weighted base for stabilitythe honeywell is less powerful on full blast, but it’s also much quieter and i’d say is generally better quality. You also get five speed settings with the honeywell and only three on the prem-i-air. It has a nice heavy base so it won’t topple over, took about five minutes to assemble (no tools are needed) and worked perfectly. The remote is a bit of a gimmick as far as i’m concerned, but that worked fine too and you get the two necessary aaa batteries included with it. It oscillates through 70 degrees (about normal) if you want it to, is height adjustable by about 8″ and the head can be tilted up and down if you wish. There is also a three year guarantee, which is reassuring. The only reason i’ve docked it a star (i’d have like to give it 4 3/4) is it seems a bit expensive to me. Having said that, as a plumber, i use honeywell motorised valves quite often and they’re the industry standard, so if this fan is built along those lines, i’m sure it will be good for many years service.

        Don’t waste time buying a cheap fan, they are noisy and innefficient, however this fan is brilliant, quiet and powerful and very useful with remote control and timer to use in the bedroom. Excellent product and service.

    • 5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and far superior to any other fan i’ve tried says:
      There is one tiny thing you could not like about this fan and that’s the weight. It has a nice heavy circular base that stops it from tilting or wobbling about. It’s easy to put together. Ot has some nice easy to use timing features like off after 1,2,4 and 8 hours. It has a sleep mode which is very quiet but in all honesty, even in max cool and this blowong a gale it’s still really quiet. Compared to the other fanes in my house this is just great. The only other thing is thw height adjuster. Not the normal screw tightening but a single twist. So height variation is not great. However all said and done, i’d buy one of these over any other fan i have.

    This review is from : Honeywell HSF600WE Advanced Quietset Oscillating Stand Fan with Noise Reduction Technology

    First off, i’d strongly recommend buying a fan before the heatwave starts in earnest. Leave it too late, and they are as rare as hen’s teeth. I work in retail and over the past few weeks of the current heatwave i’ve lost count of the number of times i’ve had to say: “sorry, we sold out weeks ago”. Anyway, even though it’s rare in this country that we need a fan, the heatwave of ’18 (as it will be surely known), proves that every home should have one. We live in a stone-built house and the upstairs really holds the heat. So a fan at night is essential. This honeywell has a number of features, but key amongst these for me is the claim that it’s very quiet. As i already have a honeywell to compare it to, i can report that it is an improvement, but perhaps not as much as i had hoped. I’m afraid it’s nowhere close to dyson-levels of quiet, though i appreciate the price difference is massive. The remote works well, though it’s a shame it doesn’t include the control for the oscillating function.

    Perhaps i’m old fashioned, but i like a fan to look like a fan, not a futuristic model tower block. With this quality product from honeywell, i feel i have got the best of all worlds. It not only looks like a fan, it really is whisper quiet and offers versatility of operation and adjustment to meet differing personal needs. It does need some assembling from the box, but the build is quite intuitive and it can be ready to go in 10 minutes. A small star screwdriver is all you need, and this is only for a small securing nut and bolt at the top of the fan covers. You can choose to operate it manually or by means of a small, very light and efficient remote control for which batteries are supplied. It is height adjustable (raise and twist to secure) and can be set to oscillate (swivel about) or not. It has 5 speeds to choose from and a reliable timer offering operations lasting 1, 2, 4 or 8 hours before switching off automatically. Weighing approximately 1 stone, it is quite portable and easy to move about.

    It seeemed a substantial well built fan, although very expensive for what it is. However on the low settings it is quite noisy. Also it’s supposed to be adjustable height but each time we set it high, it dropped again after about 5 mins of use. It just didn’t seem to lock.

      Tbh i bought it in desperation as it is so expensive that along with the dysons it was about the only fan left in the heat wave. It’s simple and elegant, the remote control is great, it’s powerful, but it’s very quiet indeed. I suffer badly in the heat and we’ve had many fans over the years and this is the quietest we’ve had.
