With a daughter headed to college in the south this week (THIS WEEK!), we're always on the lookout for space-saving things as well as things to stay cool, so I was excited to be asked to review the Lasko Twist-Top™ Tower Fan.
This is a neat little fan that can point in two directions at the same time. It also oscillates and has three speeds so you can adjust it to your needs in the room. With a 5” footprint, it doesn't take up a lot of room on the counter.
It comes fully assembled, and it's lightweight, yet solid. It's strong enough to provide a breeze and circulate air without being reminiscent of gale-force winds, important when you have it on a desk full of papers. We've tested it out in the kitchen, and there's several feet of air coverage, especially good for a fan so compact.
With only 2 buttons, it's simple to use as one controls the speed, and the other controls the oscillation. It's distinguishing feature is that you can manually turn the top section to direct the air where you want it to provide additional, directed circulation.
As for noise, it's pretty quiet. While it's not silent (what motor is?), the noise is not disturbing, we've been watching TV with it right next to the TV, and it hasn't been a problem at all. However, around here, we all like the white noise of a fan, so that's a plus!
Check it out (Why, no I'm not a videographer by trade, why do you ask? Cut me some slack, though, I had to film it myself.):
This would make a great fan for back-to-college, at the office or really any other small space since it's so compact.
