Silent operation and fabric blades were a pleasant surprise! Easily placed and well balanced it provides good breeze within a 24" radius (perfect for desk usage).
THIS IS A GREAT LITTLE FAN! SO QUIET. 2 SPEEDS. GREAT COLORS.
WAL MART HAD THE BEST PRICE AROUND.
SUPER FAST SHIPPING!
I had one of these fans at my previous job and loved it (it was the "official" fan there), so when I changed jobs, I missed it. I had to ask a previous co-worker what the brand and model were, so I could find one. The soft blades are great because they don't hurt when you reach for something and your arm gets hit. The soft blades also make it throw a lot of air and stay almost whisper quiet.
This one at Walmart.com was the cheapest I found it online, by a few bucks.
This is the second Zippi fan I've bought. It's a compact size for your desk, and the soft blades are safe and effective. It's strictly a personal fan, though. I work in an often overheated office and the Zippi sends a perfect little breeze in my space. I've even given it as a gift that people have really appreciated. And it's a great value, too. I had the first one for years, and after a lot of use, the motor just died. I like it so much I immediately ordered a new one!
This is a good little desk fan, attractive, quiet and effective. It doesn't put out the kind of wind a little turbo fan does, but it puts out plenty of air for a desk fan. The blades are made of soft silky fabric, so if you hit it with your hand or arm, it doesn't hurt at all. I want to buy another one. You don't have to take this fan apart to clean the dust off, just wipe it down. CAUTION: I think it's possible that if someone with long hair leaned over it that it could get tangled up in the fan. It would not hurt, but you might have to change in your hair style if you can't untangle it. I have long hair, but I'm careful not to get my face or my ear phones too close to the fan.
Great i like it
I love this little fan. It's whisper quiet, has two speeds and you can change the direction of it easily. Shipping what free and fast, fast, fast. It came within three days. I'm happy!
Nice little fan for cooling small spaces. I like to keep on the kitchen counter in the summertime to keep the place cool while cooking. It's super quiet which is nice. The kids love to play with it also by running their fingers over the soft blades. Of course it's completely safe for such play.
I ordered this fan to take on a cruise with me. I love a fan on to sleep. It works great. It makes just enough noise ( I like that) for me to get to sleep. It's folds down nicely to go in my suitcase. I really love the cloth blades!! It's just the coolest little fan for the price!! What a nice surprise!!
I use it as a desk fan at work. It has two speeds, the slower speed itself is pretty effective, and is good enough for me. Fairly quiet, noise is about what I'd expect from a small fan of this size. Great value for the price.
It is a delight - small and very quiet. You can't hear it running on low. It is also very unusual looking and a charmer.
This little fan works great. Plenty of air for beside my bed or in the living room. But the best part is I don't have to take it apart every 3 months to clean it. Now I need a bigger one for my daughter's room. Hope they have one!
This lil' baby fits right on my desk at work and delivers a consistent gentle breeze without drying my eyes out. It won't cool off a large area but it does me just fine!
I was talking to a friend at work today who asked me about my fan and I realized I have had this fan for at least 5 years, probably more like 7 but I can't be sure. I run my fan all day long, every work day. It is still just as quiet and effective as the first day I plugged it in. I felt like I should look and see if there was a place to write a review because of how happy I have been over the years with this fan. I get questions maybe 1-2 times a month from co-workers about it. It's very unique, but most importantly it is well made. I love it also because it is so quiet. I work on the phones all day and I never even think about noise from my fan. And for such a small fan, it generates a lot of air movement. I never use the higher setting, I never need to. I would absolutely recommend this fan to anyone who needs one. I love it.
Everyone I give this to wants two and three. Such a small fan, such a quiet fan, but such a powerful cooling fan for a bedroom or one room. It can run all day and the motor does not heat up and I love the soft blades in case you have children or pets around as they won't get hurt. I Keep coming back for more and keep them in stock at my place.
This fan is by far the coolest and best performing fan in the office at where I work! I love that the 2 speed settings move a lot of air but do not interfere with the microphone on my headset. The lowest setting for me is the one I use constantly, but when needed that next setting really pleases. The style is so refreshing and it makes everyone jealous which is nice. The best thing is how perfectly it moves the air. I love this so much and overall it is a very very quality fan that I think would improve anyone's life from a nightstand fan to a desk fan. It is simply perfect.
I have purchased many of these small fans over the years to use at home & work. Great air flow. Safe for pets and children due to cloth blades. I have hung it on a wall even. Nice colors to choose from. Great for small spaces. Have been happier with this fan than any other purchased over the years. Even take it when traveling. Recommend it. Company is nice to deal with too!
My poor beloved Zippi JUST died after about five years of constant use in a pretty hostile (read: hot, dusty, muggy) environment, was dropped dozens of times, had cats constantly challenging it to duels, and kept right on kicking. It was a great product -- portable, but still with a great fan. I can't wait to get a new one! I was so happy to find this site and not discover that the Zippi wasn't around anymore! Thanks for a great product, Vornado.
I have several Zippi's. Some I use in our Writing Center, which can get pretty stuffy, and some I have used to circulate air among my sizeable indoor seedlings in winter and spring. Our Writing Advisors love the zippi--they love its combination of effectiveness and safety. And it moves air as effectively as promised. I love it because school administrators can't object that my "fans" overload the electrical system or represent a safety hazard. My one disappointment--and it's probably at least partly my own fault--is that I've had a couple of zippi's burn out on me when running them for my seedlings. They provide exactly the right air movement; full-sized fans are way too much air, but zippi's keep air moving around more than a 30-inch by 48-inch tray without flattening the seedlings. In one instance, though, I nudged the unit so that it was stuck against a fixed object while running, and it simply burned out. In another instance, a unit just quit without being obstructed.. The zippi motors may not be suited to continuous use. I've switched over to flippi's for the seedlings because the "blades" aren't impacted by objects around them.
This is one of the greatest items I have ever bought. As one who does not typically write reviews, my Zippi is a life saver. As a woman "of a certain age", finding a comfortable way to stay cool at night has been a bit of a challenge. But with Zippi on my bedside table, it keeps me cool all night and I am sleeping better than I have in a few years. Plus it's cute. And I like it's name. All for $20.!!!!
