Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flippi okay 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?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT I have been impressed with Vornado quality, so when looking for a new desk fan for my office, I decided to see if Vornado made one. I found the Flippi V6, and took one to work. I love it! I have my Flippi about a foot and a half away from me. On the low setting, it creates a gentle breeze that is perfect for keeping me comfortable. If I start to get over-heated, I turn it up and within a minute or two, I am ready to turn it back down. The Flippi V6 is virtually silent on the low setting. The high setting is no louder than my old desk fan. It takes up less space on my desk than a conventional desk fan because the base has a smaller profile than the typical triangular style bases. I am able to flip the switch single-handedly by resting my hand on the top of the base, just below the fan itself, and flipping the switch with my pinkie finger. I like that the fan itself sits a bit higher than a typical desk fan. I think this helps with the comfort and circulation factors. I am able to adjust the direction of air flow as needed, and it stays where I put it (as opposed to the average adjustable desk fan). I am very happy with the quality and value of my Vornado Flippi V6.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks great, but... I bought this fan for my office desk because it offered multiple speeds, was advertised as whisper quiet, and had a neat design. After a couple weeks of use this is what I've found. The dial is difficult to turn to power on/off or adjust the speed. You have have to hold down the base before you can turn the dial. Also, to turn on or off, you have to go through the high speed to go to or from the low speed. The high speed is definitely not whisper quiet. The low speed was fairly quiet when I first got it, but after I accidently left it on overnight there has been a rattling sound that I find quite annoying. This rattling is even more pronounced on the high setting, which combined with the wind noise makes for a loud fan. I like that I can point the fan in most any direction, but don't have a need to flip it closed since it stays on my desk and that's just one more thing I'd have to do to get it going.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This would be a great product if.................. 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

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Noisy! Bearings lock up! This little fan worked great for about 3 months. It was perfect for our small bathroom. I turned it on one day and the blade seized up. Once the blade finally began to turn it seized on and off and made a screeching noise. The fan still works--on one speed, in one position and if it stays on constantly. If you tilt it, it screams and grinds to a stop. Same thing if you change fan speed. If you turn it off you have to go to great lengths to get it back up and running. I've owned Vornado products for years and I can't, regrettably, recommend this Vornado to anyone. This fan is too expensive for the quality and performance, unreliable and NOT up to the very high standards Vornado has established for their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neat little air circulator This is a neat little gadget. It is quiet, has a small footprint, and is currently used on my computer desk. When operating it DOES NOT scare my "poor little kitty kat" (yeah....17 lbs of poor little....)who sleeps on the desk, it does curculate the air within a 3-4 foot radius of its location, and after a few minutes of operation, I don't notice anything except the gentle folding of air being circulated. Wish I would have thought of this item for Christmas. Definitely recommended if you need a small air circulator in a small location.
