There\u2019s nothing worse than having a fan that blows hot air into your face. Makes it hard to sleep, right? What you need is a small air circulator that will move air in a way that creates a constant stream of cool air. And it just so happens some of the best fans for the job are by Vornado. In this particular case: the Vornado 460.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Vornado 460\r\nIdeal for small living rooms, offices, or bedrooms\u2014don\u2019t let its small stature fool you. Underneath is a powerful fan that can achieve whole room circulation up to 70 feet.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nWhat makes Vornado so successful is the fan\u2019s vortex action or signature Vortex technology. Rather than blow air on you, it uses air circulation. It sucks air in the back and blows it in one direction, which then comes back and funnels through the fan again, over and over\u2014up to 70 feet, in fact. It even excels in humid weather\u2014especially when it hangs in the air.\r\n\r\nThere are some downsides, however. First off, like its older brother the Vornado 660 Large Whole Room Air Circulator Fan, it can get pretty loud at the highest setting. Also, this fan only excels in smaller rooms. Anything after that it can drop in performance; otherwise a great fan nonetheless.\r\nDesign\r\nThe Vornado 460 looks nearly identical to the Vornado 660, but about two-thirds the size. It comes in two colors: black white. It does not oscillate like a Honeywell QuietSet, but it is fitted with a chrome glide bar underneath for multi directional airflow speeds instead of just back and forth. It does have speed controls, which provide three speeds\u2014one less than the four speeds the 660 provides. Lastly, the Vornado 460 is really easy to clean. By detaching the grill, you can wipe the blades down with a damp rag.\r\nValue\r\nVornado develops great air circulators\u2014especially for its price. For just $50, you can have a Vornado 460 circulating air in your living room or bedroom. It performs so well for such a small fan and it doesn\u2019t blow hot air in your face like a Lasko T42950 might. In fact, if you can, we\u2019d recommend picking up two Vornado 460s for optimal coverage, which would increase the air circulation, keep the room cooler, and handle bigger spaces. For that, we\u2019d say it has earned our mark of great value.\r\nVornado 460 Wrap Up\r\nThe Vornado 460 is small in size but works like a horse. With its multi-directional airflow, you can fill a room with cool, circulating air up to 70 feet. Of course it\u2019ll collect dust after some time so you\u2019ll want to detach the grill once in a while. Understand that it\u2019s best in a small room and can get loud at higher settings, but not to its detriment.
