The Lasko 3300 20-Inch Wind Machine is a standout in user reviews, earning more feedback than most other floor fans. Owners say it produces very good airflow and is easy to use. They generally agree that the fan is noisy (a common characteristic of floor fans), but some find this to be a plus, since the whir of the fan drowns out ambient noise. Although many users say this fan holds up well, a few complain that its plastic housing can crack easily if the fan is dropped. Another problem is that the fan can't be taken apart for cleaning.
The 3300 is not included in professional reviews, but it gets outstanding ratings from a large number of users on Walmart.com and Viewpoints.com. There are far fewer reviews at Amazon.com, but they are generally positive. If you don't have the space for a floor fan this large, consider the Best Reviewed Vornado 270 (v102) Panel Circulator (*Est. $65), which uses a flat panel design with a smaller footprint.
The Lasko 3300 20-Inch Wind Machine has about 400 user reviews on Walmart.com, earning an overall rating of 4.7 stars out of 5. Users say they love the fan's airflow and low price, though a few find the controls awkward to use. Still, 97 percent of users say they would recommend this product to a friend.
