    Is this good?

    $150 for a fan seems pretyt standard if not expensive

      It's a great for circulating the air. Not a traditional 'blow air against my face' type fan, but more of a 'place in a corner to circulate air for the whole room' type floor fan.

      I have 2 of the older models and love them. Really makes the room feel like there's a constant breeze.

      Great price too with this deal. You'd want this model for a larger type room like a living room as compared to a bedroom.

      Wonder if Harvey Norman and goodguys will price match this considering I don't have a Costco membership anymore.

    • Great product, been using this myself in our home, the idea of "bouncing/dispersing" the air to the wall is good! So you won't catch cold/wind having them on overnight

  • Is this across all stores or store specific, if the latter, what store?

    This is the regular Costco price.
    Don't buy now a price drop will usually follow their addition to the end of the isle.

    • I'm not familiar with Costco price drops, is this similar to Aldi one's, where, if the item hasn't been sold on a special buy day, it gets put on the clearance/sale rack?

    • +1

      Or buy now, keep an eye out for the price drop, and then return to the store for a refund of the difference. I’ve done this on a number of products after noting they’d reduced the price.

    Still no DC (Energy Smart) models yet? I'm waiting for a deal on one of those!

  • do these use more energy than traditional fans?

  • I had one of the slightly smaller ones but couldn't for the life of me figure out how to open it to clean the blades :(

    • +2

      It has some small screws you need to remove to take off the front panel. And then take off the fan blades to clean the back panel. There are a few youtube videos showing you how.

    This is effectively a dupe from a post in late Sept. This is the regular price at Costco, hasn't budged since the last post.

  • love vornadoes total game changer. worth the investment. they work so well and run pretty silent on low setting

  • Gotta say - any setting other then the lowest one is too loud for me.

    Best to use to blast a room for 10-15mins on mega high (which they do well), then move it down to low.

    Is too loud for me to sleep with though (even on low)

  • I use one of these for indoor cycling - really good!

    • you mean you ride on the fan???? wow…

      • +2

        pretty sure he means he cycles indoors to power the fan… nothing else would make sense.

  • I was a little disappointed with this, on the verge of returning. Being largest in the range I was expecting a bit more …oomph.
    Although to be fair, my living areq is larger than normal. Seemed to be much better in the bedroom. Maybe I had my expectations to high.

    • Perhaps you need 2 due to the living area size? Did you follow their spec in terms of room size?

  • I had one last year .Great product.

  • Btw I have a ~$20 metal fan I bought NFI but > 10 years ago pointing to the corner and my blinds on the other side of the room are moving.

  • very much an overpriced piece of motorised plastic. The Rotary switch on the one I have just bought switches from off to highest to mid to lowest speed in this order…Huh???. Really is a non-intuitive set up with the switch hidden in the back also. Furthermore it is too noisy on the two higher levels. I think you should just. buy a cheap box fan

  • Just bought one yesterday. Noticed in lowest settings it made clicking/ticking noise. Is this normal? Defect? Faulty? It become annoyance if it is a feature.

    • I mean clicking ticking noise every 15-30 seconds

      • Oops just saw how old this thread is!
