Rated 3 out of 5 by Caj1201 No good as a cooling fan
I bought this for the cooling aspect with a view to using the heat setting in the winter but as soon as I switched the cooling fan on, I knew it had to go back.
The unit is actually smaller than I expected and when switched on is incredibly noisy (with the fan turned up to a decent speed to cool the room) The speed can be turned down so the unit makes a low hum but running at this speed would not be enough to cool a warm room.
I expect a lot of viewers will be as disappointed as I am if they too were buying this for the hot weather.
On the flip side, as a heater it is brilliant. Would warm up a room in minutes if you can accept the amount your are paying for what basically is a heater.
Thank goodness for QVC's return policy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by palals A fan that covered ALL my needs
To say I own every shape and size of fan, is an understatement. Yet, last weeks on the hottest day, I had 3 fans going upstairs! Hearing this newest one of Dyson was reduced, I decided that I had to stop saying, I must get one ,then don'! Yet, with my illness M.E. and a recent relapse. A fan has to do much.. As soon as I switched it on, we (& Husband) but agreed, fantastic! At one point, I had to check, WAS it on? As its SO quiet. It was. Having limitations with energy.. Its my mini miracle, within a fan. Because, I can sit, a just it, without the struggle to get up. Likewise, my poor husband, often had to get up, turn a fan up, only 10 mins later, do the same. The joy that he will no longer need to do this, is wonderful, beyond words. Our 3year old dog, enjoys a fan. However, when some were on full, he had to move. Yet, every time I have the Dyson fan on, he just lies and sleeps, enjoying what, we can only describe as, fresh air, hidden under the umbrella of, a fan! It goes without saying, it will pay for itself, many times over. Not to mention, saving us money, when only one fan is needed, rather than a few. We briefly switched it to warm, and we both amazed at the heat too. Great for those times, when the heating is off, yet some is needed. This fan covers everything I want in a fan. Good size, yet not too tall either. Love the tilt, and I have never had a fan before, that has this. Quiet-SO quiet.. I phoned a friend, to let her 'hear' it. Then of course I had to tell her, you can't hear anything , as its silent! While our dog wouldn't dream of touching it. He did however, have to check it over, as it was something new,, that cam into his house. I let him do this, without any fear. As I am affected with temp, at anytime of the year. Its not a fan that's used only at certain times of, the year. If I have one tiny negative comment its this.. The remote control, is magnetic, and does 'stick' to the top. However, a few times I moved it, I didn't tilt it. However, the remote control slid off? As such I am having to place it, beside me.. As our dog if he saw this, would think its something to play with! Not sure why though, the magnetic isn't as strong I would have expected it to be? Perhaps if someone could answer this, please? All in all, a brilliant fan, and fantastic value for money, when compared with other's. Dyson-a name that for me means, one of a kind, with extra's no one else has thought of! This will make a huge difference, to me and my life and my problems. I realise now, I should have, given in, a long time ago, and got one, before now. But, the wait has been, worth it. Thank you all.

I bought this product in May, but unfortunately have only just used it in the hot weather recently (after checking that it was in good working order). Very disappointed. I bought it to use in the bedroom, but found it too noisy on a high setting and reverted back to an old fan which was much more effective. Wished I'd sent it back within the time scale, but too late now. Expensive mistake!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Annette123 ;VERY DISAPPOINTED
WELL, I EXPECTED MIRACLES WITH THIS AFTER WATCHING SO MANY DEMOS, I THOUGHT THIS WAS JUST RIGHT FOR ME.
I BOUGHT IT FOR THE COOLING EFFECTS I WAS GIVEN TO BELIEVE IT HAD - WHICH I'VE FOUND TO BE VERY AVERAGE AND CERTAINLY NO BETTER THAN ANY FAN I'VE HAD IN THE PAST, AND SECONDLY TO HEAT AND COOL MY CONSERVATORY - BOTH ASPECTS BADLY LET ME DOWN, I COULD GET A BETTER EFFECT FROM SOMETHING MUCH CHEAPER SO FEEL AS IF I'M STUCK WITH THIS NOW AND IT'S SO EXPENSIVE, I CERTAINLY WOULD ONLY RECOMMEND THIS TO SOMEONE NOT WANTING IT FOR CONSERVATORY USE SUMMER OR WINTER, AND PERHAPS A SMALL LIVING ROOM.
SORRY DYSON AND QVC YOU;'VE LET ME DOWN.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jj63 Would buy again
I love this fan, I would have given 5 stars but for the fact that it is not that quiet if turned up to higher than 4, so that is what I mainly use.However if you don't have sleeping husband's etc! ,turn it to 6 and WOW.That was for the cooling part of the fan as to the heating part, I would give it 10 stars,do not have to use the radiator in the living room any more which is electric and found this has saved on the electric bill!

The heater is adequate for use in my conservatory for background warmth but it's no more than average. I've not had cause to use the cold setting till this recent spate of warm days and am finding it totally ineffective in bringing down the air temperature in my front room. You could buy an air conditioning unit for much less than the cost of this which would do a better job. This is the first Dyson appliance I gave been disappointed with and I would have returned it had I thought to test it properly when it first arrived.

This arrived today and as it is the hottest day at 35c it will a good test. Well I have to say one thing it looks very chic, I don't know what it will be like with warm air. The cool air is not like airconditioning it is not crisp cold air, but it is cooler than the air temp. It is not quiet , it is as loud or louder than a convential fan...I so want to like it but the price is huge and the performance is average, But what do like is that I can try it for a good three weeks before I make my mind up. I will report back

Rated 1 out of 5 by shazone Extremely disappointed!
I bought this fan for the cool setting so cannot comment on the heat setting.
I have always wanted one of these fans as they are so stylish but I was so disappointed.
It is such a weak air flow so hardly cooling at all.
I have much better fans at home for a tenth of the price!
Thank you QVC for giving me the chance to try,but unfortunately I am sending this back.
