You want a quiet fan that blows cool air\u2014two features that usually don\u2019t mix. It has to be powerful, too. Where would you get one like that? Not at the end of a rainbow, but with the Rowenta VU5670. Its quiet operation hides the fact that it\u2019s powerful, making it one of the best fans to have in your bedroom or office.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Rowenta VU5670\r\nWith 5 different speed settings, you wouldn\u2019t expect this towering Rowenta fan to be powerful, quiet and energy efficient, in addition to being adjustable and remote control functionality.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe Rowenta VU5670 Turbo Silence Extreme Stand Fan is normally quiet by nature, never reaching above a whisper at 35dB(A) on each of its 5 speeds\u2014even with its powerful Turbo Boost mode. One speed setting in particular is quieter than any of them: Silent Night mode. It\u2019s impressive that such a quiet fan can blow so much cool air around the room, unlike the somewhat loud Vornado 660 Large Whole Room Air Circulator Fan. It creates a powerful airflow up to 2436 Cu. Ft.\/min and oscillates too in order to reach a much wider area.\r\nDesign\r\nThe Rowenta Turbo Silence Extreme Pedestal Fan uses less plastic than any fan on our list, making it a bit heavier than, say, the Honeywell QuietSet but far more tougher. It\u2019s fairly tall at 24-inches, though that can be adjusted. We like the onboard controls in particular, which can also be adjusted via the remote control. It cannot control head rotation, however. On the bright side, it is much easier to clean than a Lasko T42950, which is nothing but a dust collector.\r\nValue\r\nThe VU5670 Stand Fan Rowenta has created a great alternative to ceiling fans. Now, it is a bit on the pricey side at $138, but let\u2019s consider the positives. You could pay the same amount for a quiet operating ceiling fan, but you\u2019ll also have to have it wired. That\u2019s another bill. Or you could drop $138 on this, with free shipping, and have a quiet operating fan you can move around the house. If we had to pick, we\u2019d go with the Rowenta VU5670.\r\nRowenta VU5670 Wrap Up\r\nThe Rowenta VU5670 is like having a portable yet powerful ceiling fan without the need to stick it on your ceiling. We think that justifies its price, for sure. In return you get 5 speed settings, which are all powerful and all operate at a whisper. And yet, still cover a wide area with its oscillating head. With the added remote control, it\u2019s so hard to pass on.
