Not Really sure if this review is a fair reflection on this product as I only kept it for a few days. I needed some cooling in my retail premises, logistically, Air conditioning was out of the question so I opted for the AMO2 as it seemed like exactly what I needed despite the gold price tag.
Likes: It's uniqueness in fan design, certainly a conversation starter. It looks excellent, bit like a large tuning prong, maybe even a piece of art in some ways. The air throw is good, better than the the usual propeller fans (scientifically proven no buffeting)
Dislikes: The price, it just doesn't justify the £300 price tag. My old conventional fan gave out nearly as much air throw as this (at 10th the cost). It's very light weight (made from plastic I assume),not sure if this could handle a few knocks from the kids or pets. Why only a 2 year warranty, other Dyson products I own have 5 ? ooohhh the price why so,the Dyson cleaners are approx twice as expensive as other brands but this is approx 10 times more ? am sure once the novelty value has worn away lot of buyers would be thinking 'did I really pay £300 for this' especially if it only gets used about 3 months in a year in the UK, and with only 2 year guarantee feels like your being mugged.
