    We have always used 3-Speed 16" Metal Floor Fans in our bedroom (The kind you get from Lakewood, Polar-Aire, or Lasko). We use it for noise, cool breeze and ventilation. They are perfect because they are powerful, don't take-up much room, sturdy, easy to move around and they aren't much of an eyesore.

    Lately we have been having problems with them cutting-out sporadically. It would just stop at 2 or 3 O'clock in the morning and start back up an hour or two (or three) later. Finally, the both just quit (our backup too).

    I've wanted to try the Vornado since its inception; however, I wasn't going to risk a couple night's sleep testing fans. I immediately ran to the hardware store and picked-up the trusty ole Polar Aire 16" Floor Fan. Then, I got on line and ordered the Vornado 660.

    We were pleased, as usual with the Floor Fan; but, when the Vornado came we eagerly replaced the 16" Fan with the little Vornado to see how the little fella matched-up. We were pleasantly surprised.

    Not only did the Vornado match or surpass the power of the much bigger Floor Fan, it was quieter, smaller, looks nicer, and it very sturdy. Needless to say, we are very happy with the Vornado and we are using it for our primary fan.

    I have had a love affair with Vornado for 20 years. Recently found out the crucial variable speed switch is no longer offered. This was, by far, the best feature, one was not limited to 3 speeds but could slowly adjust to any speed desired, I mean ANY speed. I have one 20 years old and repair it myself. I consider it the last great US fan. Metal tube base will never break. Dropped, moved, repaired and still just as good as it was new. The fans they make today are the same price but with out the single most defining feature, the variable speed, has a cheap plastic base and overall quality down significantly. I wanted another badly, I used new a model my folks have, no even close. I understand competition is tough and margins weakened so off-shore production becomes survival if they actually want to make money, but falling so far from what made them so distinct, high quality and worth the money because it will last at least 20 years is so utterly disappointing. News ones still MOVE A LOT of air, at least that remains. I'll still consider one but others on the market are cheaper, offer comparable quality and have the hated 3-speed and move a lot of air too. Not sure why I would spend the money anymore. I will cherish my decades old fan and repair it forever, can't tell the abuse it has received only to be one of the most reliable products I've ever bought in my life. I hope they consider variable speed, I might get the heavy duty then rip out the switch and install my own variable speed switch! Vornado, I beg go back to your roots. Sincerely, this forever sweating fan of the what used to be the best fans on earth.

            You Can't Beat Vornado Fans & Circulators!

            By Kris Maxwell

            from USA

            Verified Buyer

            Comments about Vornado 660 Air Circulator:

            You just can't beat Vornado for quality and longevity. We have had our regular Vornado stand fan for over 11 years now, and it is still going! We use it in the bedroom to draw cooler night air from outside all summer long.

            We purchased the 660 to use in the bedroom now, and moved the stand fan to office for the treadmill.

            The 660 is really quiet on the 2 lower settings, which is great while your sleeping. It keeps the air circulating with a nice gentle breeze.
            On the higher setting it really moves the air quickly, and cools down the room fast. (We have vaulted ceilings)

            Even though the summer is almost over, we are thinking of buying another 660 from Sylvane for the living-room. That way we don't have to keep moving this one. And it will work great for circulating the heat from our wood stove during the winter.

            First time buying from Sylvane, they shipped fast and have great prices, what more could you ask for!

            served very well during the heat wave we had recently.
            Three Vornados in the home and one upstairs to circulate the attic.Big improvement over last year when all we had were the run of the mill type fans. we have no air conditioner
            so the Vornados were a life saver...Thanks for a great product.

            Comments about Vornado 660 Air Circulator:

            Purchased this product this weekend from Fry's locally, and I have been amazed at the powerful, quiet operation and build quality of the product. The piano black finish and chrome "slide" is a nice touch, and the four-speed operation ranges from "is this thing on?" quiet to "Wow, I can't believe I can feel it across the room!" powerful (without being very noisy!).

            We debated between this and the stand version, but opted for the table-top 660 because of the stable base (the stand version has a propensity to topple!), and the good looks!

            We loved the purchase so much we went back to fry's to buy another, and they were sold out! So, Sylvane.com's price with free shipping was the best on the Internet.

            A++.

            Comments about Vornado 660 Air Circulator:

            1. When the fan speed is set on 1 or 2, the noise is almost zero...

            2. When the fan speed is set on 3, I noticed my ceiling fan start to rotate! Its is very powerful!

            3. I feel very comfortable as the wind is like a cool breeze-makes me feel refreshing:)

            One of my friend ordered it after my recommendation! I will continue to recommend this amazing product to my fellow friends and colleagues.
