Online there are over 340 five-star reviews from satisfied shoppers. Here's what some had to say:

  • "I have bought 4 of these in total as think they are good value for money. They have multiple settings to control strength, timer, modes (sleep mode is quieter). These were a godsend in the summer and would recommend if you, like me, can't stretch the the likes of a Dyson fan! They aren't too bulky and useful to have the option to oscillate so it isn't blasting on you the entire time."

  • "I've never had a fan that's as good as this one. During the recent hot spell, it really kept us cool. I don't know if I imagined it, but at one time, it felt like an air conditioner, as the air from it felt decidedly cooler than normal!...I've recommended friends and family to get one. After all, that's how I acquired one...on a friends recommendation!"

  • "I bought this in early summer to replace an old fan, and it has served me brilliantly throughout the summer. It is extremely quiet, easy to assemble and works very efficiently. I think it is one of the best fans I have ever had, on some days it seemed almost as good as air-conditioning in my office. Thoroughly recommended. Well done John Lewis!"

  • "Really good fan. Quiet, smooth air flow and great value for money. I also have expensive Dyson fans and this does just as good a job in reality."

  • "Definitely recommend buying this fan. It is powerful and really quiet. I have the larger one which is great too but I like this one as it is really easy to move around if needed. Good quality too. Easy to assemble and no screwdriver needed."

  • "Excellent fan, reasonably quiet except for the highest setting. For the price, really good value."
