Though I wouldn't have said that about your office-mate, pregnant ladies are dangerous. If she finds out you apologized for her actions, she might attack! Quick, play dead and curl up into a ball while shouting as loud as you can and making yourself appear larger... I think one of those things works with grizzly bears.



The best thing to do with expecting-women is to build a safe-room with a narrow doorway.

I can't think of a really good reason for this aside from keeping one's very curious baby in one piece.

No baby. Therefore spend $10 on standard fan.

If I turn this fan on in the middle of my buffet table, will they cancel each other out?

If you buy this POC you get exactly what you deserve....

a cheap fan hidden in a base for $149.

Excuse me its an "air multiplier"

Another mindlessly expensive and mostly useless (or not superbly useful) item from Dyson.

At least this one doesn't use suction.

It seems that a main selling point of their fan is based on a problem I've never heard anyone complain about. I must admit that this is the best price I've seen this sold for, but I'd still rather buy 4 nice Vornados for the same price.



I bought a Vornado on Woot last year...can't beat it. With the Dyson you pay for the novelty.

It was several hundred dollars more there, and really moves an amazingly large volume of air. These things would be great in a nursery, or any house with small children.

High priced, sure, but I'm a fan of this fan!



if by "amazingly large volume of air" you mean "less air than a small $20 clip on fan"

dyson advertises "5 gallons of air per second"
which translates into 40 cubic ft per minute, which is the usual rating for fans

a small desktop fan moves around 150 cfm

I'll pay $149 for a Dyson hand dryer....just because those are really fun, although they're as loud as a 747 at takeoff. But this fan? It is a bust-o-mundo.

Not as good as a fan. Very noisy fan motor in its base. A good rotating fan has much better volume and quitter. Go to Best Buy for display.

Get a Vornado if you want a good fan that moves air. They are American made and have great customer service too. My cat knocked mine out of a window and broke the blade. They sent me a replacement free! I'll never own anything else.

I have one of these and like it. I received it as a gift so had no idea they cost this much. Cost aside, it is a pretty nice fan and you do get a surprising amount of air at low settings and it does have a certain coolness factor. The air amplification concept is true, we use similar devices at work for tank work. For the price I don't think I'd recommend it, though. I'd buy another for maybe as high as around around $50.

I bought a thing from dx, the delivery time was about 3 month. I won't buy from them, never

Had one; neatest feature was the back is flat, and as long as it's not oscillating, you can put it flush against a wall & it doesn't impede airflow. Returned it when I realized I could pull it 6" away from the wall and save $140.

If you want to be the butt of jokes for the rest of your life, buy this fan. Invite your friends and relatives over. Tell 'em how much you paid for it.

But, even if it was powered by kryptonite, it's still too expensive.



Yes it does. Page 2 of your link states:
"Calling the Dyson Air Multiplier a fan with no blades is perhaps a touch misleading. There are blades in the fan -- you just can't see them. The pedestal hides the blades. A motor rotates nine asymmetrically-aligned blades to pull air into the device. According to Dyson, these blades can pull in up to 5.28 gallons (about 20 liters) of air per second."

So it's a cool looking, overpriced gadget that does the same thing as other manufacturer's gadgets do for 1/10th the cost. You sure this isn't made by Apple?

What crap... You can buy a $20 fan that moves just as much air. They just moved the fan into the base. Buy up all you yuppies. It looks cool....so you must be cool. lol

Ha, it seems that there is some sort of fanclub for those fans when I looked it up last night! I had no idea!

Edit: By the way, notice the 30+ years of gunk on it. :P I saved the pic as low res for the slower internet challenged wooters out there, but you can see it if you look closely!

I am looking to buy "Life Choices", any size, send me a message!

So fuhqued up.
