Rated 4 out of 5 by Bonniekate5 Powerful little fan!!!!
The Vornado 573 is a table air circulator, and it's a bit different from traditional fans, but I like what it does. It pulls the air in the window (in my situation) and sends it across the room. It hits a wall and curls off in several directions and gets the cool air throughout the room. This one I use in a bedroom. I would probably want to get a bigger one for a Family Room or Living Room.
It's fairly quiet unless it's on the top speed, but you can raise the tv volume over it without a problem and without blasting the neighborhood!!!
I like this small fan over so many of the LARGE fans I've bought over the years. I often have it on a lower setting.

This is my 2nd room circulator. I have been using the larger 270 for over 1 year to supplement the thru the wall air conditioner and base board heat.. Unless the a/c is on high fan which is very noisy, the cool air seems to never make it to the end of an 18' room. However, I have a 12' hallway running at a right angle at the end of the room and warm are seems to get stuck there. The compact 573 does just the job of pulling some of that cool air down the hall. Unlike other fans which blow air and anything in front of it, this truly does gently circulate the air. I am able to lower the thermostat on my heat and raise my thermostat on my a/c, both by several degrees.

Rated 4 out of 5 by VMAF Fan is good size and worked when tested.
I was disappointed that the front cover simply does not clip on to make cleaning fan blades easy. Instead, screws hold the cover in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by edspiglet Great product
The Vornado Air Ciculator is quiet, efficient, takes up minimal space and does what it advertises.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TXJ1980 The PERFECT desk fan
Just purchased today and already impressed with this product! I am a current vornado owner at my home, so it would make sense to have one at the office as well. I am glad I went with this model as I originally went with a Flippi V8 and found it to be a good product quality-wise, but a bit weak in the performance. I like a good strong breeze while I am working, and this certainly delivers. That and it is very quiet-won't disturb others around me. Thank you, Vornado, for building yet another fan worth the extra few bucks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FLHRTRAVELER Reputation speaks for itself
This is my 3rd Vornado room circulator and I was so impressed with the first purchase that I've ordered 2 more in the last several months. Summer or Winter Vornado products leave conventional fans in the dust! Stand at any point in a room you can feel the air being moved. The warranty is exceptional should I ever need to use it and decades of experience has led Vornado to continue to make great products. I could not be happier with my purchases!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Pat Can't get into the product to clean the layer of dirt.
Good product until it gets dirty. Then, two of the bottom screws at the bottom are unaccessible. I would have to buy special screwdrivers to get into the screws in the legs of the product Model 573. Ridiculous! You should have provided the special screws needed. I won't be using this without the layer of dust removed. Please provide a solution. Thank you Pat

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shay Lasted for 1.5 years only.....
Imagine my surprise when not 2 years into owning this, the motor squeals like a banshee and the blades turn fast then slow.... I have cleaned it, and oiled the blade shaft and to no avail. This I expect from a lesser model fan, and have had this happen to them, but a Vornado? If you only want a year of use out of it, then just expect a year or so use. It WAS quiet and efficient when it was new.
