Bladeless Fan under $100

I know that you can buy dyson one's for $300-$600. But does anyone know where to go cheaper bladeness fan (still good quality). There is no point getting a really cheap one which doesn't even work properly.

    is there such a thing ?

    They sound like jet engines.

    Arnt regular fans good enough any more? (needs ipod integration?)

  •  

    According to a consumer test I read somewhere, they aren't actually better at displacing air than normal fans, just look cooler (pun). So you're paying for the looks.

      but if you have small kids, these are much safer unless your kid sticks his/her head through it and gets stuck

        Kid with pretty small head if they can stick it through the grill of a normal fan. :)

      safer for dumb kids and curious pets.

      Also, no blades or grills to clean. plus they look pretty cool. you can also use them for kid games throwing a ball through the hole. You can still do that with bladed fans. much more fun but more mess to clean

      Man you ruined it by saying:

      (pun)

      Would have upvoted based on the pun if not for that. :(

    I thought you could only buy the dyson ones too.

      there are on ebay you can for $100. But I was hoping to find someone who has used them and had positive feedback :(.

        Got one of the ebay cheapies .. worked great for about 3 days but now won't even turn on.

        Fairly sure there aren't any decent copies out there. If a reputable brand made one they would get sued by Dyson.

          thanks for that. That's what I was afraid to here. I guess there is no point buynig them unless its a dyson.

    have a look at http://www.choice.com.au/reviews-and-tests/household/heating...

    they are no better than a desk fan & no quieter according to choice. and that's a dyson they reviewed …

      thanks for that. Actually our main issue is that our desk fan has got dust stuck in it and its really hard to clean it. I even opened it but there it doesn't allow you to dismantle into pieces so that you can clean it. So, the issue is that it blows out dust.
      I suppose for cheper alternative we can just buy a new fan :)

    I don't own a Dyson but have been near a few. Also unimpressed by the motor noise (and the variability between units). If anybody has or buys a cheapie that's quietish and doesn't deteriorate after a couple of weeks use, please come back to the thread and let us know.

    Just like Dyson vacuum cleaners in a couple of years these will be much cheaper. Stood in front on one at HN and it messed with my mind, how the hell does it make the air blow?
