    Vornado 660 Vs 16" Floor Fan

    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.

    Vornado 660 Air Circulator

    Comments about Vornado 660 Air Circulator:

    The circulator was bought for the bedroom. While it is a nice fan which can move large amounts of air, we found the lowest speed did not move enough air. The 3 higher speeds made too much wind noise to sleep comfortably. Unfortunately Vornado no longer makes an infinitely adjustable speed control that would most likely have allowed us to keep the fan. Nor does any other fan company that we can find. Vornado states the cost of the control was deemed too high to offer in any of the fans. The fans are no longer made in the U.S. I emailed Vornado about plugging the fan into a variable speed control switch. They replied that the fans are not made for that accessory. Hopefully, Vornado will return the variable control in the future as well as the making of the fan in the U.S.

    It looks great and works great. Keep my study room cool.
    It's quite and I use the last two fan speed setting while working and it does not bother me at all. Will buy another one or two in the future.. of course will get it from Sylvane since they have great price compared to other online stores.
