Tower fans are becoming more popular among home owners because of the small footprint they take up, and even though they are small in size they can still give off some cool air. A lot of these fans are not only more silent than traditional fans, but they offer some added features which can really come in handy. Read on to hear what I think about this fan.
This review is on the Ozeri 360 Oscillation Tower Fan. The fan came packaged really well in a cardboard box with molded foam inserts. The fan came unassembled in 3 parts, the fan itself and 2 halves of the fan base. The fan base was very easy to assemble without tools thanks to 3 small thumb screws. I assembled it in under 1 minute. The fan is very stable and doesn’t wobble while spinning. The fans matte black finish is accompanied by a color LCD screen with large icons portraying the various modes of the fan.
This fan has many useful features that can all be accessed via the buttons on the fan itself, or on the included remote. On the top of the fan, starting from the left, is an Oscillation button, a Temperature Lock button, a Timer button, a Breeze mode button, a Wind Speed button and a Power button.
The Oscillation button controls how much of an angle you want the fan to oscillate, with 60, 90,120, and 360 degrees being the option. The notable setting is the 360 degree setting, as most fans only oscillate up to 180 degrees. The temperature button acts like a thermostat, allowing you to select a desired room temperature, and when the room temperature goes above what you set it to, the fan will turn on. Setting the temperature is easy: When the room temperature is at one you desire, press the Temperature Lock button to save that temperature.
The timer feature is basically an auto off function that allows you to set the fan to turn off automatically, from 30 minutes up to 8 hours, in 30 minute increments. The breeze function allows you to set the type of air flow to either Normal, Nature or Sleep, which makes the breeze more soothing. The speed button is pretty self explanatory, it allows you to change the speed of the fan with 3 settings, High, Med, and Low. On the included remote is another button which activates a Night Mode Display, which dims the lights on the bright LCD display. This can also be done on the fan itself by pressing and holding the Mode button for around 3 seconds.
I received this fan at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest review, and these are my unbiased thoughts on the product.
