A slightly above average-costing fan that provides excellent air circulation even in a large room, which is especially impressive considering its compact size.

Pro It's a great compromise between price, size, and airflow
Although $60 can seem like a pretty significant investment for a fan, it is a fairly modest price for the Vornado 630. What you get is a compact air circulator that compares and often outmatches tall tower fans and unstable oscillating fans in terms of airflow, and also costs within the mid-level price.
Pro You can use it in a large room
You can put this fan in a large room and it will easily recirculate air. Unlike many rotating fans that produce a fairly weak air stream and rely on oscillation to cover more area, the Vornado 630 creates a strong yet smooth stream that pushes the air around the whole room.
Con It's noisier than other fans
The Vornado 630 makes about 60 dB worth of noise on the highest speed setting, which is comparable with a full-on AC. It is not the loudest fan out there by far, but if you want to leave it on while you're sleeping, it would probably be a good idea to look specifically for fans that produce around 50 dB of noise.
Con It's a little bit basic
Although this is an overall great purchase, this fan lacks some more advanced features that a lot of alternatives in this price range have. For example, it doesn't come with a remote, or an auto turn-off timer.
