REVIEW – I live in NYC, and with the spring season beginning to emerge from the dark and cold winter, I am looking to replace my old and broken floor standing fan with a new fan that will provide effective and efficient cooling for that period of time before the air conditioner is a must. I recently got my hands on the Trustech Oscillating Tower Fan. Here is a summary of my experience with it.
What is it?
The Trustech fan is an oscillating tower pedestal Remote Control fan that is bladeless and quiet.
What’s in the box
1 x Trustech Fan (In 3 parts that require simple assembly)
1 x Remote Control
1 x User Guide
Design and features
- Air Multiplier Technology
- Ultra Quiet
- Custom Cooling Time with Timer
- Remote Control
- 70 Degree Oscillating
The Trustech Fan is a 3.6-foot standing fan. It arrives in 3 main pieces that are the base, the bottom portion that houses the electronics and the top portion that houses the output design including the fins.
On the front of the fan, there are manual button controls that include, the swing on/off, the timer settings, the mode the speed and the power on/off.
Above the control buttons, there are the LED indicators for the swing on/off, the timer setting, the air flow mode, and the air volume setting. The LEDs that are next to the labeled indicators light blue when selected.
The fan arrives as 3 main parts in the box. Assembly is very simple. The bottom portion of the fan has a threaded base that fits into the fan base and can only fit one way. There is a plastic nut that then screws on to the threaded base to connect the two. The fan base has notches to neatly pass the power cable through. The top portion of the fan simply clicks into place on the bottom portion. The fan is made mostly of plastic but does not feel poorly made or really cheap. Once standing, the fan is also quite steady on its base. The remote control is small but functional. All that is left to do is to plug the fan into an AC power outlet and turn it on.
All of the functions are simple and work as expected including the timer functions, the swing mode, and the airflow modes. However, no matter what airflow mode you choose, the airflow pressure of this fan leaves much to be desired, and you can only get a proper cooling effect if you are quite close to the front of it.
What I like
- The sleek design
- The Oscillating capability
- The sleep timer
What can be improved
- The volume of air that it produces
- A dimmer option for the bright LEDs that are on the front
To be totally honest, this fan has been very disappointing for me. When I first received it I was quite pleased about the design, the features and the simplicity of the assembly. However, the most important task it is designed to perform is to blow an adequate volume of air to provide cooling. This fan cannot cool anything more than a tiny room. If you stand more than 5 feet in front of it, the effect is minimal at best. For my use, this inability is a deal breaker and even more so considering the price. Great design but a failing grade for performance.
