My first Vornado, I bought this little guy because I wanted a small fan to directly cool me at work, and at home. I saw this, saw how it could fold up into a interesting little shape, and decided to give it a try. For being a 3 inch fan I must say the air pressure it can put out is impressive. on low I can feel the full air column about 10 feet away, which tapers off to a slight breeze around 15 feet away. On high it can push that air column 20 feet like it says, tapering off to a slight breeze about 23 feet away. It's fun to sit across the living room and aim the fan at one of the cats, and 5 sec later ruffle their fur. The noise level on low is quiet, but high tends to be a little bit noisy. Not that for what I use it for I really need the high setting. But most of the noise seems to be the air pressure. The looks are nice, with a glossy finish, and the signature Vornado grill, with the rear vent looking a little like a ancient GE fan I used to have, it folds up into a nice piece of artwork. The only issue I seem to have with it, and I dont know if it's a precursor to a problem with the motor, is that when aimed up, or at a steeper angle up, the rpms seem to decrease a bit. Im hoping a Vornado rep will know something about this, but other than that this is a awesome fan.

Good performance, quiet, attractive, reasonably priced. High marks in all catagories for my newly purchased Flippi V-6. That is where the good news ends and the bad news begins. Really bad news. I have had my V-6 for 10 days. Runs in my bedroom 24/7. Does double-duty as a circulator and an exterior cooling source for my 2 laptops. Major dust/grime build-up on the blades, tunnel & grill. Now I discover there is no access to these elements for cleaning. What am I supposed to do, stick a q-tip through the grill? You can't blow this grim off. Unbelievable design decision. Did final approval go through the Sales Reduction Team? It's working. No interior access, no more Vornado's for me. I realize this post will not circulate the public forum.. but neither will my greasy little V-6. 8^( Regards

    Comments about Vornado® Personal Table Fan (CR1-0095-06):

    I bought this four years for work (I have three walls of glass surrounding me so it gets hot quickly) and have had it on EVERY day in the office for four years and it hasn't failed me yet. Sure, the fan will sometimes not stay in position, and may tak two hands to adjust the speed, but as long as it keeps me cool, provides air flow, and still run without issue, that should say enough about its durability and ability to provide airflow. I've decided to buy another one in the near future.

      Comments about Vornado® Personal Table Fan (CR1-0095-06):

      I wanted to post my review and saw the NotaFan already already did! I use it on my desktop which is great for the 'low' setting, very quiet, but 'high' is sometimes too high so an intermediate setting would be nice. The switch REALLY bugs me; for one thing it's awkward, and for another, I can't turn it on/off or high/low without holding on to it because it's so lightweight that it scoots away. And really, off-low-high clockwise makes more sense than off-high-low counter-clockwise.

      What a piece of JUNK!

        Comments about Vornado® Personal Table Fan (CR1-0095-06):

        It took me only a few days to decide to return this piece of junk to the store. Almost immediately, it started making a squeaking noise as it reached the end of rotation and strted to reverse. I tried to live with it for a few days, but I couldn't stand the semi-random squeaking. Far more distracting than the heat.

        Also, the controls were very badly designed. The rotation switch is hidden on the back side -- and it's hard to operate by feel, so you have to pick it up and turn it around to operate this switch. Then the fan switch on the front takes 2 hands to operate -- a real drawback in a small personal fan. Plus the switch is unlabeled, so it's hard to tell which way is on or off -- have to memorize that, but I've got better things to occupy my memory. Finally, I couldn't see how I would ever clean it. Fans accumulate dirt, and eventually need cleaning.

        When I took it back, the store offered to replace it with another one -- because of the bad design, I would have declined that even before the clerk mentioned that "a lot of customers" were complaining about the noise.

        One good feature: for a small fan, it did move a lot of air. But that wasn't enough to compensate for all the defects.

        Comments about Vornado® Personal Table Fan (CR1-0095-06):

        I liked the idea of this fan as a replacement for a very classic miniature floor design type that had quit working. I bought this expecting something better than average because of the name and the hype. Unfortunately, between the nearly useless I setting and the better II setting that is laid out in a very odd way on the power switch, I'm overall far from impressed. Why have a setting that barely moves air. I accidentally leave it on all the time because it's basically like not being on at all. Also, why on earth would you lay out a switch like the one they did? The fan isn't heavy enough to use it with one hand so any time I want to go change the setting or turn it off, I need to use both hands. I know, first world problems, but it's 2015, I think we can do better. Also, what's with having the layout of the switch going from Off to II to I? Is that just a complacent admittance that nobody is really every going to use setting I?

        Use this at my office. Ever since I got it, it was noisy. Not so much from air flow but from rattling which is kind of bothersome. At low speed it is fine and pushes enough air in a small area, but if you need to turn up the speed, you may notice the sound. Otherwise very happy with it.

        Fan was fine for about 5 hours then the noise got crazy.. I answered the phone and someone asked if I was working on farm machinery.. I KID YOU NOT.

        the noise comes from the washer that holds the fan blades in the electric motor. if you pull the front cover off and push in on the fan while its rotating (Center, not on the blades) the noise stops. apparently the "washer" rubs on the front side of the motor housing and causes the issue.

        the fan is $20.00 new.. and shipping back for repair (will run about $10.00 to ship back) is a waste of my time.

        So with that, I shot a 3 pointer into the dumpster with it.

        I got it for free from Uline because I had a big order.. placed a 2nd big order and got another "vornado" V6.... so I will see how long this one last before someone asks me if I am working on farm machinery when they call.

        I purchased this fan for my desk at work. Day 1 & 2 I loved it. It was very quiet and made a difference in my comfort level... then Day 3 came along and it is making a horrible rattling sound! It is so loud I can't stand to have it on at all, even the low setting. Unfortunely I was so happy the first 2 days, I already got rid of the box.

        Comments about Vornado® Personal Table Fan (CR1-0095-06):

        Overall, I think the fan does what it was designed to do, but a little refinement would go a long way towards making it a better product.

        First, I wish I had it had another - lower - speed adjustment. I use it on my desk in a small space so it is sitting just a short distance from me out of necessity. As a result the air flow on low is a little stronger than I would like, and forget about ever using it on high.

        Second, the controls are really poorly designed. It takes two hands to turn on/adjust the on/off/speed switch. It doesn't turn easily so it requires the fan being held in place while you turn the switch. It really needs to be redesigned. The same is true for the oscillating switch. Why in the world would you bury it on the back base of the unit? Horrible to get to and use.

        Third, it is too noisy. I could almost forgive the noise of the fan by chalking it up to the amount of air it is moving, but the unit also has a harmonic buzz that I suspect is coming from the motor that is constant and annoying. It may make it necessary for me to return the unit as I am not sure I am going to be able to live with the constant hum that is being produced.

            I was suckered by the cool design and the brand name. Cheaply made, noisy and poor air movement. This unit is to fans, what V-Tech's are to phones. If you've ever owned a V-Tech phone, you know what I mean. All looks, no quality. I work in an office environment and I'm self-conscious about using this fan on high because of disruptive noise. Even on high it doesn't produce enough air flow for me. I'm using the fan on low for a little air movement, but overall I'm quite disappointed.

            I use this fan in my bathroom. I really like the ability to direct the airflow in so many directions. That's what sold me on the product.

            I'd like it to have more power on the "Low" setting though. When the fan is set on "Low," it's so quiet that it doesn't sound like it's turned on at all. There's very little circulating of air going on when using the "Low" setting.

            I purchased this fan to replace a louder cheaper one I had been using. This was a great choice for replacement! Smooth, quiet and small this moves a lot of air and fits my décor perfectly. The only thing I would change is it seems the 'low' setting is a little too slow, could be a bit faster.

            Of course I love this fan, I designed it!! I was working at M-Design in Burbank and we pitched several concepts to Vornado, they chose my proposal. Vornado did a great job taking it to market. I wouldn't mind doing a next gen though! I have been a freelance designer for a while now, but still have fond memories of this project.

            Comments about Vornado® Personal Table Fan (CR1-0095-06):

            This is my second flippi fan. I have the V6 model, and that was also the same as my previous model. I used my last fan on my nightstand each night for over 6 years before I had any issues with it. This new one I just got is the same as the other one, however I feel this one seems quieter, and the dial on the bottom to adjust the speed is much easier to turn than the previous one was. I also noticed that this new model has a fused plug whereas the other model didn't have that. The only issue I truly have ever found, is that you cannot remove the grill to clean the fan blades, you have to use a vacuum cleaner or even compressed air to actually get the dirt out of the fan. The design and ease of maintenance didn't seem very well thought out on this aspect, however the styling is great, I like how the color of the unit has the matching colored Vornado emblem in the middle of the grill too. I think that these are good fans, I hope this new one lasts as long as the last one did, which was a wedding gift back in 2008! So I am definitely pleased with the longevity of this item and being used daily for a minimum of 8 hours at least often times much more than that.

            Compact & Swivels

            Likes - I like it's compact - perfect in the bathroom. I like that is swivels you don't have air constantly blowing on you. Power nob is awkward, always dialing it the wrong way to turn it off. Dislikes -- I get that the face can be cleaned off but the blade get dirty too, haven't tried to 'vacuum' them as recommended, but wish you could get at them to wipe them. Overall perfect for what I needed, just some air circulating in a small bathroom.

            Best on the market

            I am extremely pleased with my Vornado V6 personal circulator. It's quiet, efficient and durable. It's also attractively contemporary in appearance. I can adjust it so it blows cool air up, down or turn it to direct the air flow to either side. As small as it is, it does seem to circulate the air in the entire room. I'm convinced it's the best fan/air circulator on the market. I don't mind if it cost a little more. The quality and value makes it well worth the price. I plan on purchasing a V8 circulator soon.

            Very nice table top. Can barely hear running. Color and style are fantastic.

            Quiet, Stylish Office Fan

            I use this fan at the office. It is very effective at keeping the air circulating in my cube. I particularly appreciate how quietly it functions. When closed, it looks like a small modern sculpture.

            Perfect For College

            I am a college student at the University of Iowa and I have had this year for 2 years now. I basically never turn it off and it has not died yet. It was perfect for my dorm room last year due to its size as it fit on my desk. It is an awesome product and great for my first two years.

            should be adjustable

            The fan casing that moves up and down needs a way for the user to tighten the casing so that it stays in the same position. On several occasions, the fan is loose and droops downward which causes the breeze to go directly down to the table. Other than that design flaw, the fan is just right.

            Noisy

            This is not a cheap fan, but the performance does not measure up. It is very noisy for its' size. There are better options.

            Great Little Fan

            We bought this fan to keep in the small cabinet that houses our telephone/computer routers. We wanted to keep the equipment cool while it's running. It fits in a small space and does a good job.

            I love the appearance of this fan, and the colors available - my only gripe is that I wish it was made in the USA -
