16" stand fan with slow mode
« on: July 29, 2019, 14:12 »
I have a 16" stand fan in my HT room, and at the slowest speed, the wind noise is still quite loud.
Anyone got a recommendation for a 16" stand fan with a reasonably "slow" mode that is less noisy?

I have the Novita one but I didn't get the optional battery as I don't intend to use it where there is no power supply. Very quiet fan.
I think the Xiaomi version is much better value for money as it is very much cheaper and comes with the battery built-in which costs about $60 in Novita's case. And it is controllable remotely from Xiaomi's Mi Home app.

I think Mistral also have a similar fan selling locally about $98 in Best Denki by the way.

Item arrived within 48hrs. Fast delivery.

Initially I was kind of shocked at the size, so much smaller & shorter than the 16” fan next to it.

My worries went away when tested at max speed, the airflow is pretty strong. Noise wise at max speed is similar to the older fan.

Really happy it is very silent in slow speed mode(15%), with enough breeze to “survive”; and fully enjoy hifi music without fan noise at the side.

The app is quite easy to use.

Really happy with the purchase!

@pschia: thanks for the recommendation

I use mine to circulate the cold air from the air con for better coverage and lesser dead spaces. ;)

I have the Novita battery and don't find this function that useful. Lasts a long time but has restrictions on the speed and oscillation. I like the docking mechanism so it's still convenient if you need this feature.

Xiaomi does look good, but has slightly less options. The Novita has more oscillation freedom (e.g. almost 90 deg upwards), more speed options and you can lower the stand height.. I think the main thing I like about the Xiaomi is the controls by the app, can set function with other units (e.g. turn on above certain humidity/temperature, etc) and adjust the light.. find the Novita light a bit bright and you can't adjust.

Price-wise obviously Xiaomi is always good.
