Classic design and powerful cooling make the Honeywell 16" Remote Control Stand an ideal ventilation solution / 3 Speeds / Extends to 50 Inches / WHITE Powerful 3 speed motor Head tilts to direct air flow Simple No tool assembly 5-Year Limited Warranty
With its attractive, classic design, this 16-inch stand fan offers cooling relief on hot summer days. The unit comes equipped with a powerful three-speed motor for low, medium, and high settings, plus turbo wind-generator blades that move more air than standard "pedal style" blades. For even greater coverage, it can be set to oscillate, and its adjustable head tilts for directing airflow. The stand fan includes a remote control, which conveniently stores into the fan neck and provides audio and visual setting confirmation. Program the timer for two, four, or eight-hour automatic shut-off, or select Breeze mode to simulate outdoor wind flow. The fan assembles in minutes with no tools required. Its adjustable pole extends to 50 inches tall, and the fan carries a five-year limited warranty.
A Decent Fan For The Money
This fan does blow a really good stream of wind, even at it's lowest setting, although it does so a bit noisely. It's somewhat annoying at night, in one's bedroom, when the fan's noise is a bit intrusive. It sounds sort of like a propellor driven airplane revving up for take-off, although not nearly as loud. I've got another 16" floor standing fan several years old that also blows well, although not quite as brisk as the Honeywell, but is a good bit quieter. I think that the low speed setting on the Honeywell HS-300 is somewhat higher than other fans, hence the noise. The fan's blade design, which is supposed to increase air flow, is also a contributing factor in making this fan noisier than others, I believe.
One negative point is regarding the fan's oscillation feature; there's no button for it on the remote control. One has to pull/push a button on top of the fan housing to activate or deactivate it.
While the noise factor is a slight issue, it's not severe enough to cause me to return this fan.......it does move air around quite well. And, I did get this fan for a decent price directly from Amazon, $34.00, and no shipping charge with Super Saver. Sadly, at the time of writing this review, the fan is only available from another company for $40.00 with a shipping charge of $17.46(yikes!!!).
This fan is excellent. It is very powerful even on the lowest setting. The remote and timer are great features. I did extensive research before purchasing a fan and wanted to get this particular one because of the price, trusted brand, and pretty good reviews. One drawback is not really a drawback, more of a luxury but I wish it had remote-controlled oscillation like my previous fan. It is a little bit noisy but that doesn't really bother me. I would recommend this fan to anyone.
A great fan
My entire family sleeps with a fan beside their bed (Year Round). We already had one of these fans and everyone was fighting over it so we bought 2 more. We are a happy family again! Love it.
