Stopped by Bed Bath & Beyond over the weekend, and finally got to see some of the new Dyson “bladeless” fans in action:
I’m a fan junkie – can’t sleep without at least one blowing! – and as cool as these things look, there is just no way to justify spending $300 for a fan. For that kind of money, I’d want a Hollywood sound-stage type fan that can crank up an F-2 level tornado. These Dyson fans look nifty, and they generated a decent breeze, but nothing you couldn’t achieve with a simple $20 desktop fan.
As the headline at Engadget read: “Dyson’s Air Multiplier is the overpriced bladeless fan you never asked for” – yup.
