SMALL BUT MIGHTY!

Hi have purchased this fan from Argos over several years and I do have say its been getting smaller, . So this last purchase I was a little sceptical when I took it out of the box. However I am pleased to say that this fan is small but mighty. It is very powerful at 40w. My first ever purchase of this fan years ago was 50W then it dropped to 30W which was no good, but at 40W I was pleasantly surprised. So much so I will buy another one for the summer.

Fan is ok

This current fan is a replacement for one which broke down (basically stopped working), it is not the first time I have had to replace a challenge fan all I can say is thank god for breakdown warranty. Anyone who buys one of these make sure you get breakdown warranty as you will need it

Exactly what I needed

I bought this to replace a pedestal fan that we kept tripping over! It works well and requires no floor space which is a bonus. The 3 speeds are a good feature and I also like that fact that the swivel movement can be stopped and started as and when required. The tilting head is also useful.

it's ok, however for me the fan started to break and become lose after 4 days and it rattles so much it's annoying. if you can be bothered spending time adjusting it to get it to stop then this fan is for you

I use this in my small bedroom at night on speed one. It provides enough air and it's not as loud as other fans I have had.
