Vornado 733B Full size Whole Circulator

Vornado 733B Full size Whole Circulator

Was looking to replace an inexpensive fan that simply was too loud on high speed to let us sleep. Once the sun goes down it cools outside but not in the house and we are used to it cooler in order to sleep well. The Vornado can be run on high which really moves the air but does so fairly quietly (you could say very quiet in the city and in the next room quiet in a rural setting).

Owning a Vornado heater I already knew to expect quality construction and wasn't disappointed. A nice feature built into the design is the ability to point the fan level, at an angle, or straight up without any moving parts to shake loose---it is all in the design of the base.

Bottom line; three speeds, really moves the air on high, is quieter at all speeds than any other fan I've seen, and is well designed.

  1. I own 6 vornado's, 4 different models, including this one. My two oldest are 8-10 years old and still running strong. Great for circulating air all over the house. Only fan I would own, worth the price

  2. I've had the old classic 210 with variable speed for five or six years to circulate window air conditioning in my big L-shaped living room. I'm buying this one to blow cool air from one bedroom to another at night so I don't have to carry the other one around when I go to bed. This one is virtually identical to the 210, except it's 3 speed and only has 3 positions. But I have finally figured out that I don't need to pay infinitely variable speed or infinite positioning.

    The west side of my living room can reach 110 degrees or more in the afternoons. The only window I can put an A/C in faces the other side of the room. So I put the Vornado on the floor near the A/C and aim it so that the compact air stream hits the stream of air from the A/C and blows it to the hot end of the room. I'm astonished at how well this works. The rest of the year, when I'm not using the A/C, I use it like a ceiling fan by aiming it straight up. This baby really can throw air all over the place in a compact stream. They're right when they call it an air circulator. On low pointing it directly at yourself is OK, but because of the narrow air stream it works best pointed at the ceiling or a nearby wall to cool you indirectly.

    It's very, very quiet at low settings. At medium it sounds like any fan; at high it is about as loud as any average fan at its high setting. But you only need it on high when you're really trying to move a lot of air quickly.

    Vornado fans are worth every penny. Not many products actually live up to their hype, but this one does. I can't wait to get the new one.

  3. I now have two of these--one in my bedroom, one in my office. I have them running constantly in air conditioned rooms because the movement of air makes the rooms seem significantly cooler. Well made, quiet (not silent), good value.

  4. I live in an apartment with a window-unit air conditioner, so feeling the cool air can be a bit of a problem. That's where the Vornado comes in. This item is so powerful that it actually CIRCULATES (not just fans) air around the room; you can feel a nice breeze wherever you're sitting! Because of this effect, two things happen when you have your air conditioning on:

    1) You can set the thermostat at a higher temperature and the room will actually be cooler than it would be if you didn't have the Vornado and if you had the thermostat set lower!
    2) The Vornado circulates the cool air all over the room, so it effectively turns a window unit into a powerful central air unit!

    The last tenant who lived in my apartment had a $60 electric bill for May last year...mine was $30. While he had to set the thermostat to 68 to feel the air conditioning, I can set it to 75 and still feel the same effect WITH a cool breeze...all because of the Vornado!

    The unit is barely audible on its lowest setting and about as loud as a window unit air conditioner on the highest setting. But don't let this deter you. Even on the lowest setting, you can still feel a difference.

  5. I never ever write consumer reviews. EVER. But this thing came in 2 days with free shipping, it's whisper quiet and it WORKS LIKE IT SAYS IT DOES. And it's actually assembled in America. Worth the money.

  6. On high, this fan is like a wind cannon. I can feel the breeze 40 feet away. On low, it creates a nice breeze and is quiet too. I also like that it is compact. A much better choice then a box fan.

  7. This is my first Vornado purchase. I just found about about this brand from a person in my office. She had a smaller unit, but also a smaller office, and it worked very well on the lowest speed.

    This thing is _heavy_. It feels very well constructed, and not at all "chintzy" like the usual $20 fans. On the lowest speed it's amazingly quiet from ~5 feet away.

    The only thing I dislike is the noise generated by the middle and high speeds--but that's really rather a non-issue, as it's perfectly capable of circulating the air in an entire 10 x 10 room on the low setting.

    As my coworker put it, it's an "air circulator" moreso than a fan; you don't point it directly at you. Rather, angle it somewhere else in the room, from a bit away, and the entire room gets a nice, gentle breeze. I was quite skeptical of this idea, thanks to all the inefficient, cheap fans I've purchased over the years, but this idea WORKS. I stay cooler throughout the day--and my papers aren't constantly blowing off my desk Neat!

    Overall I'm very happy with this purchase, and would recommend others to consider this over a cheap fan you'll be replacing in a year once again.

    This isn't cheap, but I feel I received very good value for the money spent overall.

  8. This Vornado air circulator is my 7th, although 3 of them now reside with my adult children who refused to give them up after using them in college dorms. I've purchased all different sizes, and they all perform excellently - the oldest 2 were purchased in 1995 and are still going strong. If you want to maximize the performance of these units, follow the manufacturer's instructions as to how to position them to circulate the air, depending on the time of year. There is no need to have them blowing or oscillating directly on you if you follow instructions. The cost is well worth it, as cheaper fans don't perform as well, and usually die within a couple of years.
