    If money is not an issue, I would buy a dyson. No blades for littleys to get their fingers caught in, plus they are so quiet.

    I've had 2 x El-Cheapo $10 ones from Bunnings since 2002. They're still running perfectly! And do a great job!

    oh i would agree with dyson (not that I have one)

    my dad turned up at my house with this fancy, remote controlled, mulit pivoting thing - was $150. broker after 2mths.

    I now have a couple of $20 fans that have been going strong for almost 3yrs.

    We got ours cheap from Kmart. It is a silver/chrome one. In the past our more pricey ones have broken, but this el-cheapo is still going strong from last summer lol.

    NAW!!! You've broken my heart I've been waiting for you to start an appliance based thread just so I could make a joke...*runs away crying*..

    Nar, on a serious note, I've still got pedestal fans from those cheap shops and one from Aldi and they're really good.
