I compared the Lasko fan to the Holmes 32" Oscillating Tower Fan and there was no comparison. The Holmes fan was too short to generate a breeze above my bed where I needed it. The power of the fan was also extremely weak in general--especially since it was being advertised as a whole house fan. Essentially, Holme's most powerful breeze was equivalent to the lowest setting on the Lasko. The interface was confusing. And there also was no remote. The Holmes base is sturdy and I experienced no rattling.
I also compared the Lasko to the Sunter 40" Tower Fan (2 Pack Combo with a 13" Personal Fan). While I preferred the look of the Lasko (the silver color made it more versatile for both dark and light color themes), the truth is, of all three, the Sunter was the most powerful--though maybe only a step above. The 40" height was still high enough to reach over the bed where I needed it. Its top portion of the vent is not adjustable up-and-down like the Lasko--but most fans don't have that feature. The Sunter was fairly quiet, but not as quiet as the Lasko. The remote appears chintzier than the Lasko's but it turns out Sunter's remote range is stronger than the Lasko's. The Sunter base is sturdy and I experienced no rattling. However, I did experience vibration and rattling with its bonus personal 13" fan that came with it.
Of all three fans, the Lasko was the easiest to assemble. I felt the Lasko was the most attractively versatile with its silver finish. Both the Lasko and Sunter have an easy interface to understand. Both were sturdy and did not rattle. The Lasko has the quietest breeze, with the Sunter a close quiet second. However, the Sunter offered the strongest breeze, with Lasko being a close second. Both were good for 20 x 20' rooms. The Lasko offers three speed settings; the Sunter offers four speed settings. Both offer timers. The Lasko offers an ionizer feature which is nice; however, the Sunter offers an interesting evening breeze feature. (The evening breeze feature tapers off the breeze to the next lowest level every half an hour as you drift off to sleep--VERY nice.)
Finally, [at the time of this review] the Lasko costs $56.52 on Amazon; while the Sunter costs $39.99 at Costco (or $44.32 on Amazon). The $16 higher price for the Lasko dramatically altered my star rating for the product down to a 4-star. And since the Sunter is fairly comparable (with a bonus fan) at a dramatically cheaper price, I am posting a 5-star for the Sunter as a best-buy.
NOW onto reviewing how well it works.
I live in Louisiana. Not only is the temperature around what the fiery pits of Hell must be like. But there is also humidity to add even more fun to it. I come home to a house that is roughly around 84 degrees F at 5:30 in the evening so I needed a little help with cooling off. Within 5 minutes of turning this thing on it was like an angel had come down from heaven and began to personally blow cool air on my face. I was genuinely close to tears. If this thing only lasts a month it will have been worth the money. Also people keep mentioning the light being bright at night. It's a little bitty green light the size of a pen top, not a laser beam.
This is not an air conditioner. As much as you may want it to be, it is a fan. Sometimes it feels like the air comming out of it is coller, sometimes it’s in the same temperature as the room (just like a fan). I haven’t yet been able to determine what makes it cooler.
This is, however, better than any other fan I’ve tried. It’s bigger, has good potency, and did a good job helping me survive the summer in Los Angeles.
After a couple of nights the fan began to tick, tick, tick tick. A call to Lasko and the tech advised me to return the fan for exchange. "It should not be doing that", said the guy.
Well if the first fan was tick, tick, ticking...the replacement Lasko 2551 sounded like a garbage disposal chewing up a tin can. Yikes! (As a side note, the box was pristine and did not show signs of damage, etc.)
So fan #3? Let's just say we went with Honeywell.
It arrived on time, box in perfect condition, on a hot San Francisco day. Had it set up in 10 minutes. Perfect for my hot South facing office. I agree with others, this does feel cooler than just circulated air. I was going to buy a window airconditioner, but if i can avoid air con I'd prefer to use the a la natural fan.
