It looks and feels polished, with a handsome bladeless design and a small remote that magnetically clips to its side.Of course, the asking price is really hard to justify.

Doing this dramatically reduced our pool of potential test hardware, but we still had 12 devices to test for this guide’s initial version—seven fans for a large room and five for small personal spaces.The Vornado 630 moved more air than our pick and was one of the most powerful in our test, with a vortex-like design that circulates a huge volume of air at high velocities.It’s a bit louder than some of the tower fans we tested, but it comes at a price that can compete with our top pick.Our smaller desk fan pick and upgrade pick remain the same. It’s one of the quietest fans we’ve tested, and its performance on short-range air velocity and whole-room circulation is competitive with many pricier tower fans and air circulators.It includes the strongest remote control in our test group, and it has the second-longest sleep timer (up to 7.5 hours) and the third-widest oscillation range (75 degrees).Its power and features fall short compared to our other picks, as you’d expect at such a low price.

The Dyson Air Multiplier AM06 may seem like a gimmicky product, but in addition to being the quietest fan we tested, it is one of the most powerful.

The first thing we did was break down fans into two basic groups: room fans designed to cool a larger space (bedroom, living room), and desk fans designed for use in smaller, personal spaces (cubicle, bedside table).

Then we took to the internet to see which fans from each category were most popular on sites like Amazon, Walmart, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Target, and Costco.

Like its cousin the 660, a former runner-up pick in this guide, the 630 does not oscillate—but due to the way it moves air throughout a room, it doesn’t really need to.

We would’ve appreciated the convenience of a remote or a sleep timer, but this fan’s bare-bones functionality offers its own sort of charm.

If you’re looking for an inexpensive, capable fan to use at your desk on on a small table, the Holmes Lil’ Blizzard 8-Inch Oscillating Table Fan is a fine choice.
