Quiet, Reliable, Easy To Clean5
The quietness of my 10-year-old fan prompted my friend to ask me order her one. All the parts disassemble easily for total cleaning. A real workhorse; I leave it running 24/7 in summer.

Just what I was hoping for5
I had bought a Hunter table fan, only to be completely disappointed to find that not only was it made in China, but it was difficult to disassemble for cleaning, and the blades won't start to spin unless switched to HIGH (and even then it sometimes needs a push or several to start turning). So, I set out on a quest to find a fan that is made in the US, easy to disassemble, and works properly. I stumbled across reviews on the 'net which indicated that not only are Lasko fans still made in the US, but this particular fan is easy to disassemble. So I ordered two from Amazon. They arrived in a matter of 3 business days. I am SO pleased with the fan! I put the first one together in about 1 minute, didn't even need the instructions (the other I'll just keep in the box until needed). The head doesn't tilt downward very much, I'd say only 5 or 10 degrees, but it tilts upward quite a bit farther than other fans I've owned, I'd guess somewhere between 30 to 40 degrees from level. It's very quiet other than the inevitable white noise of the fan blades pushing the air. I run my fan in the bedroom at night for the white noise and the air circulation, so it's probably on a *minimum* of 12 hours a day. I don't have any idea how long this fan will hold up to that kind of use. But I am so pleased to have something made in the US and fits all of the other criteria that I set out to find!!! Thanks, Amazon, for the quick delivery, and Lasko, for the great product!!!


o Made in the US

o Easy to assemble/disassemble

o Quiet

o Above average upward tilt (based on previous fans I've owned)

o 6 foot power cord seems adequate for most locations

o Speed control on base rather than fan head


o Fan blades aren't exactly balanced; fan head
jiggles slightly but no noises are created

I realize the "con" I mention is a little picky, it's really the only thing I noticed about the fan that wasn't pretty much perfect.

Now if it will only last for 25 years like the Sanyo desk fan I used to own... if it does, I'll probably be dead and the second fan will be brand new in a box on the shelves downstairs, so my family will inherit a brand new "old" fan LOL.

Awesome fan5
I ordered 2 of these, and they are great! Nice and quiet and wonderful circulation, would definitely buy Lasko brand again.
