I bought this partly for the great jet turbine retro aesthetics and partly because Vornado has a solid reputation. At full speed, this is able to circulate air in every corner of my 11'x10' bedroom. I'm often listening to music with headphones so the slightly loud fan noise at full speed doesn't bother me. Be aware that it isn't quiet at the full RPM.
At half speed, it doesn't circulate the air fully, but is perfect for pointing directly at me when I'm at my desk. I can still feel it when it's halfway across the room. When I run it as I fall asleep, I enjoy the noise it makes at half speed.
Don't expect the power of a full-size box fan or ceiling fan, but it gets the job done well for a smallish bedroom and looks great (I bought the white).
Side note- I recommend buying a smart plug to turn this into a smart plug. Makes the experience so much better
