    That's a really good price. Cheaper than Costco. I think they are over $150 now.

    •  

      Except when Costco has it on special, when it comes down to $100, which was about 6 months ago.

      •  

        We've got two of them. I remember we got one of them using a coupon but that was a few years ago. They don't get discounted very often at all.

    Ah shooot.
    I want the DC.

    •  

      I’ve got a 660 at the moment. 633DC is smaller but I want the switch.

      Is it much smaller?

      • +2 votes

        I don't know about size but in terms of CFM:
        660: High Speed CFM = 584
        633DC: High Speed CFM = 435

        So considerably less in that regard and turned me off the idea of buying a 633DC a little as I do often (but not anywhere near always) run my 660 at max speed.

        •  

          Thanks! I figured I can move the 660 downstairs and have the 633 upstairs. Hopefully I haven’t made the wrong choice.

          •  

            @Owgasm: When you get them both, would you please write up a comparison of the max distance that each blows? I've tested using those little foam balls placed on the carpet.

          i always run my 660 at min speed. Any faster than that and it's too noisy. I'd need my ANC headphones on or it would drive me nuts.

      Guess what, I did a search and the 633DC is on sale @ $139!

      I've got the 660 and it's absolutely fantastic. It's a little noisy due to the higher airflow but well worth it. What's the benefit of the DC version?

      • +5 votes

        I love my 660. I move it up and down the stairs so often I had to get a second one.

        The 633DC is MEDIUM but also a DC fan. So more energy efficient!
        And the most important thing for me is that it I had a ANALOG switch, so I can turn it on and off by the smart power plug!
        Where as the 660 I could only set a timer on the power plug to turn off.

        •  

          Thanks, that clarifies it. Do agree the button mechanism on the 660 unit isn't the best.

    Damn look at the marketing wank on that.

    Is it really that good?

    •  

      Imagine a fan, but more powerful, and in a narrow funnel, and actually circulates air around a room.

    • +5 votes

      I have one and I don't think it's that good for the price. it is better than a $20 pedestal fan.
      I would recommend that the Kogan circulator which does a similar job for a fraction of the price and includes a remote - I have one of these as well and works great :) https://www.kogan.com/au/buy/kogan-dc-motor-circulator-small...

      • +2 votes

        I would suggest you aren't using it for it's intended purpose then. This isn't a traditional point-at-you fan while you sit on the sofa, it's meant to be angled in a room/against a wall/glass to circulate air within the entire space. Something it actually does really well.

        •  

          Not really sure about this or I may have bought one that was too small for the room.
          The suggested one I would say appears better on paper.
          These are quite overpriced to what they offer and no way to control it without manually accessing it. Not being lazy but you would want them really far from as they are LOUD! (PS. returned it and simply got the ugly smart pedestal fan from Kmart which is much better).

          •  

            @samkenny: The controls aren't great but it's not designed to be constantly controlled, hence no oscillation etc. You set it at the correct trajectory and setting then leave it on to circulate air around the room. I do feel people don't understand it's intended purpose, it's not the same function as a pedestal fan.

          "it's meant to be angled in a room/against a wall/glass to circulate air within the entire space."
          I can do that with any FAN!

          • +2 votes

            @Bluering48: No, you really can't. The difference is this creates a higher pressure air vortex (hence noisy) to dissipate air. A normal pedestal fan is unable to output enough pressure to bounce off walls.

            It's a similar concept for desktop computer fans, you can get high airflow or static pressure fans and they each have a purpose (you wouldn't use the same fan for a water cooling radiator to a normal rear case fan).

          • +1 vote

            @Bluering48: @Hybroid Thanks for the reply. For that price, it should have had a remote or some sort of distance control (even smart control). This product doesn't sit in the industrial category to be "robust" style design when selling to casual consumers. I was even willing to use my smart plug for this purpose and gave a fair 2-day trial before returning it to Harvey. I trialled the 533 and it felt quiet in the massive showroom. Bring into a house with no noise and it sounds like a jet engine going off.

            Tried to love with the price I paid but they simply can't substitute noise with volume of air / fan blade width

    Does a good job of circulating air.

    Noisy af. Very involved process of cleaning.

    I have one of these and don't think it's worth the money. I would recommend the Kogan circulator (which I also have) for $49 which does a similar job which also comes with a remote and can't auto rotate :) https://www.kogan.com/au/buy/kogan-dc-motor-circulator-small...

    •  

      Is it powerful?

      • +1 vote

        I have both too they are both better than pedestal fans. However prefer the Vornado in large areas over Kogan.

        I point my Vornado up towards corner ceiling and does well to circulate both cold and hot air (in conjunction with AC and ducted heating). I don't get the same movement of air with the Kogan in living room tbh

        $159 is a great deal. I bought mine for $199 ($179 after David Jones SB upped cashback) just in January.

  • +5 votes

    I have one and cannot really recommend. Similar to some others here I find it does circulate air a lot better (need to point it to your corner of your ceiling). For straight up cooling on a hot day though I actually prefer having a $15 pedestal fan pointed at me/swivelling. The vornado is also significantly noisier than pedestal fans, even on medium setting but I mostly use it on high.

    tldr: cooling - cheap pedestal fan is much better value for money / circulation - vornado

  •  

    Whats the advantage of the 633DC fan over the 660? Seems to be a smaller fan for the same price?

      Supposedly more energy efficient. Also love that i can adjust the speed via the speed knob instead of a preset setting.

    I’m not a fan tbh

  •  

    Does this Vortex Circulation stuff actually work is this a direct fan to face sort of thing?

    • +2 votes

      Definitely works. Whenever i turn on the vornado in my loving room, it always spins up my collection of candle spinner on the other end of the room. Definitely can face it too though i'm not sure if it'll help circulate anything that way.

    •  

      The best way I can describe it is you can feel it on the back of your neck!

  •  

    unpublish pls

  •  

    We love ours, although we live in a small 2 bedroom apartment. You can really feel the air circulation in the entire room improve when it’s on. If you are looking for something to cool you down while you sit in one spot, I wouldn’t recommend it, it’s not what it’s for and a pedestal fan will do it better.

  •  

    Does circulating air make a huge difference in cooling or does it really need to work in conjunction with AC / Heaters? Seems like a expensive product if i need to use another product with it? So you dont use it as a fan and blow air towards you but you get it to circulate air and create like a draft / wind?

    •  

      in sweltering heat, all you'd be blowing is the same hot air around you.

      Use it with your AC if your AC is the kind that blows a breeze in one direction and you're not in its path.

    Both versions are available at the good guys :

    So might help out those who want to go in store and pick up straight away.

  •  

    Well thats annoying - I bought this for $159 and it dropped to $149 so I asked Amazon if they would refund me, they applied a $10 credit to my account, and now its $139 :P

    Thanks. Got the 633DC. Been waiting for this to go on sale for a while.

      The 633DC version is in stock at the moment at least. They are both also available at The Good Guys, as an alternative.

    •  

      the white 660 is still available too… it's the black that is on back order

  •  

    What’s the chances of Amazon cancelling? Wait times is 1-2mths…

    I ordered one anyway. So if this order is delivered to our house, we will have 6 of these 660s….

    •  

      it'll be mid/late autumn by then so it's all good. You'll be ready for end of the year.

  •  

    How much more efficient is the 633DC vs the 660 anyway? Do we have wattage statistics?

    • +1 vote

      I measured with a watt metre my 533dc.
      Goes from 2w to 45w. past the 2/3 mark on the control knob power usage and sound increases a lot without necessarily more air that I could feel.

      Maybe the fan pitch is best suited for for the lower 2/3 speed and beyond its just thrashing about.

      Fans should have variable blade pitches.

      •  

        Thanks for testing this.

        The 660 reports 56W max. I also read somewhere else that the 633DC goes to around 40W. I guess the advantage of these dc fans is the efficiency at low speeds - 2w as you say, compared to a starting point of 29W for the 660.

  •  

    I am looking for a fan to blow in cool air during the evenings when the temperature drops from the front or back door. The house is usually heated through the day and some cross ventilation will help cool it. Is this the right fan to do this?

    • +1 vote

      It should be ok but might not move enough air for your liking and might be a bit of a waste.

      If you can put it somewhere where you aren't bothered by the noise, you will likely get better results from pointing a cheap, large, high velocity pedestal fan directly out the door (or window) to suck air in elsewhere instead (although large high velocity fans will use more electricity).

  •  

    Shame already bought one with TGG sale

  •  

    .
    THANKS got the 633dc as I have a 533dc (blades width is less the 6 inches) I found it's too small for the bedroom and a bit noisy when turned up

  •  

    Works best with Airconditioning - wonderful in small homes and apartments. I have it on 1 when I sleep and it's not too loud at all. I enjoy the white noise.

    On full setting its audible just like any other fan that moves a significant volume of air.

  •  

    I'm thinking of this to help move air from my one aircon around my house (aircon up one end of fairly long home). Would it suit this purpose?

    •  

      How long is the hallway? The 633DC will push around 5m around one corner or about 6m in a straight line. You can extend the distance by chaining another fan.

    •  

      Bought mine with the same idea in mind….and answer is "depends on the layout IMHO".

      Bought mine to cool bedrooms off a hall that leads from lounge room (where the aircon is)

      Possible Problem 1 - placement, you need to be able to "point' it so the air "tunnel" goes where you want sooo can you locate it (and any cords - note cord on these are not that long so an extension cord may be needed) where it isn't a stumble over obstacle esp if littlies live in the house.

      Problem 2 - is the area to be cooled in direct line of sight, in my case the bedrooms were off the hall ie 90 degrees angle so "tunnel" either bypassed them or couldn't be "aimed" well and into (all of) them.

      Problem 3 - (applies to all big air pushing fans IMHO) noise, bear in mind you probably will need to run the fan at max setting

  •  

    I spend a lot of time in my room (about 4.5m x 4.5m), door closed with a fan that doesn't do too much on above 32 degrees days - the room still boiling compared to my living room.
    In addition, I'm looking something that I can leave on for 48 hours straight if needed.

    Is this the right pickup for me?

    •  

      Do you mean 32 degrees inside or outside? If it's 32 degrees inside, only an air con will work. If that's the outside temp, then you need a DC pedestal fan like the Kogan one. A high velocity floor fan will also work if you prefer not to have a fan blowing directly at you. In any case, the vornado won't suit your situation.

  •  

    Bought this and shopback just send me email about this transaction, $0. No cashback. Anyone have the same experience?

    •  

      Yep I just came here to report back on that given I was the one that commented above. Not sure why - waiting for the transaction to show up fully in my account (currently still "Calculating") and then I'll submit an inquiry.

  •  

    I have a similar model and is fantastic - works a treat - but it's just to noisy for night time usage, in my view.

    •  

      I live alone and sometimes have the 660 in the next room aimed at my bedroom. It's great. Reduces the noise a lot and still circulates air in a comfortable indirect way

      • +1 vote

        I would see it as a way of emptying the hot air from a room when you open up at night, is that about right? That way you can turn it off before going to bed.
