I have both a Vornado fan and a Honeywell fan of the same size. They look almost exactly the same, although I would have to say that the Honeywell fan works a bit better than the Vornado. Still, this Vornado fan has lasted me many years, and it is still blowing strong. I have this fan in my kitchen because I don't have air conditioning, and it really helps whenever I am cooking or when I have people over. It is super quiet, I have to say. I always forget it is on! I think that the speed control is easier to use than the Honeywell fan. It is definitely one powerful little fan, and with a summer like this, it is definitely a must-have!
