I loved this fan! I liked the fact that it was small and easily movable, and that the purring sound of the fan helped put me to sleep. I did have to shut the fan off at times to talk on the telephone, but for me, it's positives outweighed it's negatives. It was inexpensive, ran constantly and did the job. Only bummer was that it's life span was so very short! Not even two years! Holmes did offer to send me a new one with a discount and free shipping!

As implied in the inserted review title, I feel not enough use has occurred to give a satisfactorily complete review of this product. Generally, it does not appear that his unit will last as long or work as effectively as the previous Holmes fan we used. This unit'ts fan cage is so "heavily" built that the airflow is reduced substantially. This design also makes the cage so heavy that the fan has trouble holding it's head up. That is the tightening screw has trouble holding the cage up when we want it to aim high(er). Perhaps, in time, we will be able to determine a tightening method to compensate for this apparent flaw. Only time will tell. Now, the deign flaw is not totally negative, however. Our old fan was built with very modest construction. This enabled it to generate substantial air movement and work very effectively. That cage was easily broken as a result of its design. My suggestion would be that future designs include a cage that contains fewer crossbars and somewhat less thickness. You will then have a sturdy cage buty one that allows for substantial airflow generation. Good luck in building the next space shuttle. :>)

Comments about Holmes Blizzard 8" Oscillating Power Fan:

This is my 3rd blizzard fan and I would not recommend any other product other than this fan. It has great cooling effects and I also use it for "white noise" at bedtime.

Comments about Holmes Blizzard 8" Oscillating Power Fan:

I love this fan!, Powerful, great size not like the large pedastal ones we used to buy. I have ringing in my ears so the motor hum is so relaxing and makes it so easy to fall asleep at night I ordered two more last week. Great addition to anyone's home. You will want one for every room!,,

Great for white noise

By Tasdiet

from New York, NY, United States

Comments about Holmes Blizzard 8" Oscillating Power Fan:

I have been using these fans for years in all four bedrooms as white noise. They work perfect. Unfortunately they don't last very long when you run them 7 to 10 hours every day.

Do Not buy this fan!

By aklinger98

from PA, United States

Comments about Holmes Blizzard 8" Oscillating Power Fan:

We bought 2 - 1 for ourselves, 1 for our son. His was broken in less than 6 months - we figured it was abused by a 12 year old and couldn't take it. Our fans tilt mechanism broke after about a year and could no longer be adjusted. Then it would only start moving if you set it on high and waited a bit. We took the grill off and used canned air to blow out the dust. It helped for a few days, then went back to the slow start again. Last evening we turned it on before bed, only to wake up a few hours later to a dead fan. After less than 2 years of use. Our next fan will definitely be another brand.

So disappointed

By Mamaof3

from Fort Worth, TX, United States

Comments about Holmes Blizzard 8" Oscillating Power Fan:

We bought this fan (again) to replace the first one my daughter had for a couple of years because it is the loudest I can find and is great for white noise on the highest setting. She can't sleep without it. It worked for a couple of weeks and now will only stay at the lowest (quietest) setting, regardless of which setting it is on. i am currently searching for another one that is just as loud but am disappointed in every other one we try.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
