Fanimation Fargo

Pros
  • Stylish design
  • Lifetime warranty on motor
Cons
  • Effectiveness is unclear
  • Expensive

With its spherical design, the Fanimation Fargo (*Est. $270) is striking, but it's unclear how reviewers view its effectiveness. The fan itself is globe-shaped atop a round base, which Fanimation says allows the fan to draw in air from above and below and propel it out laterally. The company says this prevents the fan from ruffling papers. The Fargo is vintage in style and has three speeds, and the motor has a limited lifetime warranty.

Reviewers at CNET.com and ApartmentTherapy.com recommend it as a stylish fan, but it's not clear if either tests the Fargo. Jean Aw of CNET.com flat-out admits that she selected this fan from an image alone. Consumer reviews aren't available.

1. CNET

Jean Aw rounds up 10 stylish (mostly designer) fans that she says are attractive and effective. The Fanimation Fargo fan gets by far the worst endorsement. Aw says, "In all honesty, I needed to find 10 aesthetically interesting fans, and I was running out of fans I knew." It's clear this fan isn't tested and is selected on style alone.
