Rated 4 out of 5 by AHK Yes! but...
QUIET: I have lots of smaller Vornado fans/ciruclators. I think they are the most effective air movers I've seen, ever. The old ones had a continuous adjustment (like a radio dial) so you can adjust in tiny increments. The newer ones have specific settings, which means if you need quiet you can't have it on full-blast. This larger one, however, because of its size, blows more air on the lowest setting than the smaller on the higher settings. So that's great for those of use who have a problem with noise. BEWARE: One caution for people who have MCS or anyone who is sensitive to chemical outgassing. This plastic outgasses. I had to put the fan in the laundry room for months, and the last time I checked there was still a slight odor. Hard plastic that does not outgas DOES exist, so if Vornado switched to that I would rate their products excellent in all respects. So would I recommend the fan to a friend? Yes, definitely, with the warning about outgassing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Thinking design change form the original design
The 660 Vornado the back shroud has been change from the original design been studying the original design the back shroud is flare out ways curve on the back of the shroud and the early model 180 from around the early 1990 's it is molded plastic with the original design the rear shroud flaring out ways with a curve same design as original but the 660 vornado is different no out would flaring curve instead round then drops to a narrower diameter no curve just strait drop looking form front inside a gap between the two diameters .looking from the front inside you can see this no curve just strait drop. Will this affect aerodynamics compered to the original design. So the vornado 660 is not the original design. So is it a real vornado ? I expected when buying the vornado 660 it was the real original design witch it is not .Why is there no statement on box , paper work that the vornado 660 design is not the original and original design has been change ? The reason for buying a vornado 660 is the aerodynamics of the original design but that has been change .

Okay look I just spent a whole lot of time making a good review just to I guess it was my fault but the page went back and it erased my review and since im sick right now and just want to lay down here you go. The 660 is a beast to be reckoned with, not only does it works just continuously but it has a beautiful design about it that other fans don't have. It works wonders and makes air just BILLOW out of it (sometimes I even use it to clear rooms by holding it and using it as a slightly portable fan and making sure all the air in the room gets moved. and for a normal room it takes about 30 seconds and for a living room about 40. Oh heres a bad thing about it I dislike the chrome bar, I just feel like sometimes its just too hard to swivel the model but if you give it just like 3 extra seconds of patience you can get it to move. okay there you go bye

It really does circulate air through a whole room. Even if the fan isn't pointed at you, you will still feel the breeze. Works well for cooling down my apartment after the LA sun heats it up during the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Natty THE BEST FAN I HAVE EVER PURCHASED
Dear Vornado, Please do not change A SINGLE THING about this fan. It is absolutely PERFECT! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that you kept the high setting and how is has such a great WHOOSHING sound! We were in the market for a new fan because we can sometimes here our upstairs neighbors walk etc. and it tends to get annoying... especially at night!! And with a toddler and an infant we needed something to create a good white noise so that they are not disturbed while sleeping. THIS FAN DOES IT! We tried about 12 different fans and found our one and only! We are actually tempted to purchase 2 more as back-ups for future needs!!! It is great that you have basically pleased all audiences with this fan as the lower settings are whisper quiet and the highest setting is loud enough to mask other noises. WE ARE SOO HAPPY WITH OUR PURCHASE! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Affinity Moves air
I have this unit in the corner shooting air across the room to opposite corner to distribute AC. At min setting, I can feel the airflow in the opposite corner (20 feet) without any sound at all. The only two negatives: - I expected a more solid base. It's thin, cheap plastic. My unit sits on a granite countertop surface will easily rotate when touching the controls so I have to hold onto the unit. Massive design flaw: - There are 5 buttons on the unit: ON/OFF - full, high, medium, low. You can't go from an OFF state to low. You must hit the ON button first which turns unit on full blast and then hit LOW. Seems trivial that they could have had OFF->low state with one button push bypassing the full blast initial state.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alfred creates a breeze throught the entire room
I was in the market for a fan during the summer heat since my generic off the shelf fan wasnt cutting it. I did some research and read a few reviews which lead me to the vornado. i chose the 660 and I loved the 4 electronic button settingds rather than the three standard on conventional fans. First impression was HO BAH! I could feel the breeze from across the room. I was convinced. What was a bummer was it wasnt an oscillating fan. Dont be fooled though. I was laying in bed with the fan pointed away in another direction and still felt the air circulating around me. Im still amazed as how this fan does it. It catches me off guard every time i walk through the house and feel a breeze and the fan is pointed elsewhere.

This is probably the Most Attractive of all my Vornado fans. I love how modern it is in design and function. All it needs now it a remote control and it would really be perfect!
