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.
