I took my flippi out of the box and the minute I saw it run, I thought it was amazing. I have my midnight blue flippi on my computer desk and makes a nice breeze on low speed, so I see no need for a high speed!! But this fan DOES have a few bugs. On high speed, there is quite a bit of noise. Otherwise, I see this fan as a great fan for a bedroom or desk. Although it's loud on high speed, the only way you know the fan is on when it is on low speed is the breeze on your skin. GREAT fan!!!

It's cute and you can't beat the price. But even so, I expected a Vornado to have a little more oomph. It's Not whisper quiet like it says on the box, at least not on high, the setting you have to use to get any significant air flow. Secondly, the rotating power dial is right below the rotating frame. So wherever your opposing fingers are, they usually wind up rotating the whole device, instead of the switch. Vornado missed the boat on design. The unit should power off, when tilted fully down. The instructions say not to operate in that position, it just rotates that way to look cool when off. So why not make it easier for us, and have that be a way to turn it on and off? Much more convenient. BTW, Vornado-Website-wise... There is an asterisk next to the field where I had to enter my e-mail address, but no follow up asterisk to say what the caveat is. I wonder what I agreed to?

You CAN'T Clean it!

By Beth

from Undisclosed

Comments about Vornado® Personal Air Circulator (CR1-0094-41):

As your own product write up says... this moves air and needs to be cleaned! But you can only wipe off the outside of the fan. The inside gets all gunked up with dust and eventually causes noise and slows down the motor. Tried vacuuming but can't get INSIDE...so I took it apart! For the cost of a locking wire nut I couldn't get the fan back together! Very wise from a built-in product obsolescence technique but come on guys if I'm willing to take the time to take the fan apart TO CLEAN IT couldn't you use a twisted wire nut instead of the crimping kind so I can put it back together? The wire ends up too short after breaking the crimped wire nut connection... grrrrrrr

Excessive noise for it's size.

By Joey

from MN

Comments about Vornado® Personal Air Circulator (CR1-0094-41):

Fan makes a whirring/rattling noise when powered on right out of the box. The noise will go away if I hold the fan upside down or at the right angle... I bought this for climate control at work and it has ended up being more of a noisey nuisance than anything. The low setting on the fan is a joke, I can use a piece of paper as a fan and get more CFM. The low setting also produces the whirring/rattling noise which is much more noticable. It is very disappointing considering the good things I've heard and experienced from other products offered by Vornado. I would not buy this fan again or recommend it to anyone.

Oh so refreshing . . .

By miau

from New York, NY

Comments about Vornado® Personal Air Circulator (CR1-0094-41):

I have several Vornado fans, this is compact model with a very small footprint and realistically can only cover a small area. On high setting, this fan easily reaches 6 to 7 feet with just a very low white noise hum, low setting is great on a desk or night stand with almost zero sound; I am very satisfied and have been using this fan for just over 1 year. The fan does not look like poor quality plastic and the color choices can only add to one's decor and I hope there will be more color choices.

Just what I needed!

By Emanes

from Andover, KS

Comments about Vornado® Personal Air Circulator (CR1-0094-41):

I was looking for something inexpensive to replace my white noise machine that shorted out. I found this little fan that fits perfectly on my nightstand and makes just the right amount of noise on low speed to help me sleep. And as an added bonus, if I get hot during the night, I can turn it towards myself and it's not too much of a breeze. I had a question about using it and customer service was very responsive.

Perfect fan!

By Webtraveller

from Kansas

Comments about Vornado® Personal Air Circulator (CR1-0094-41):

I saw the little fan and didn't expect much. I figured it would have a loud motor with tons of vibration that would be loud in my office, but I was completely wrong. It sits less than two feet in front of me under my computer monitors and I forget it's even there other than the nice breeze I now have. It is great for a desk since you can swivel it back and forth or adjust the fan angle up or down, getting the air just where you need it. The style is great. I purchased the red model and I have had multiple people come through asking where I got it. Plus, you can't go wrong buying an American made product, especially one made in the great state of Kansas!

does what I bought it for

By Allens

from Colorado Springs

Comments about Vornado® Personal Air Circulator (CR1-0094-41):

I needed a fan to sit on my desk at work (no AC here). Main requirement was that it was quiet and moved air. I got this on sale, so it was actually cheaper than most of the junky small fans next to it. On high speed, it was louder than I expected, but not so loud I can't use it. On low speed, extremely quiet. My only complaint is that it takes two hands to turn on or off or change speeds. It isn't heavy enough to keep from moving the whole fan when trying to move the switch.

Fan looks fine and works fine BUT cannot be cleaned inside. The blades are thickly coated with dust etc and I cannot clean them..Never again, your product. All appliances should enable cleaning

Overall, a great device

By MrMagicMan101

Comments about Vornado® Personal Air Circulator (CR1-0094-41):

I wish the air would go further, but with the price, the quality, and the silence, it beats any other fan I've tried by a long-shot.

Manufacturing Defect?

By VornadoBuyer

from Undisclosed

Comments about Vornado® Personal Air Circulator (CR1-0094-41):

This is an awesome fan but, I cannot find a way to clean the fan. It looks like there are 4 tabs that you have to push in to get the grille off of the unit.

Perfect

By Hottie

from Cincinnati

Comments about Vornado® Personal Air Circulator (CR1-0094-41):

What a nice surprise. The flippi is perfect for my desk at work; all I need is air flow to make me more comfortable in an office of 6 others. I tend to run hotter than most and I need airflow. It's running now: I feel it, but don't hear it. SWEET. I'm going to see about an air circulator for a room in my house without wiring for a ceiling fan.
