Absolute bargain picked one up today - expecting it to be marked all over but in mint condition out of the box.

If we do get any more hot weather it will be a great buy

Do you know if it is nation wide?
Why are there so many refurbished dyson desk fans? Seems like a lot of customer returns!

Perhaps they are brand new and they do this as to not cheapen the brand.

​half the stuff there isn't refurbished, simply bought out old stock in bulk
Standard fan for £14.95 or this? Hmm I think I'll keep my £105 and by a cheap one.Dyson trying to fix a problem that isn't a problem.

It is a bit of a gimmic, which would not be so bad if it were not so expensive!
they are useless, stand at a distance and they do nothing. Also seems that in quite environment they produce, at a certain frequency, a disturbing background sound
These fans aren't anything special and are vastly overpriced...... pretty much the same as their vacuum cleaners.
Is refurbished the new word for second hand? every time I see the word, I keep thinking of house refurbishment. I guess all they do is wipe the finger prints from it and flog it
Dyson? Booooooo
we have bought a few electrical items from there Corby store, the only advice I can give "make sure you live local" we have had two refurbished vacuums one bellowd black smoke the second didn't work, got our money back, cordless phone crackled the whole time , got money back, lastly sony freeview recorder failed after 2 days, took back for a refund.

I think the Argos refurbished means , we switched it on and it done something and then we placed it in a new box.

buyers beware

​Wouldnt suprise me, so easy to take things back to Argos and tell them whats wrong they dont seem to take note and then replace or refund anyway!
Looking at the tech involved in these bladeless fans, even £120 is extortion considering.

We use them on our intensive care unit and i know other units do too. They don't collect dust half as much as bog standard fans and are much easier to clean
It's not really bladeless but at this price I want one! But way to far away
I got the Dyson v6 from here last week, £150 what a bargain, looks like new and works fantastic, have had a few electrics from here and not a problem with any
but these Dyson fans do look a bit if an expensive gimmick
As is usual with Dyson stuff, a triumph of marketing over function!

It's a fan, it moves air and if you stand in the draught, it cools you.

Make sure it's the V6, mini-turbo, brightly coloured, turbine version.

I picked a fan up from B&M, £5. Virtually the same thing.
Dyson is the Apple of the white goods world, absolutely nothing special but overpriced and worshipped by people who just want it as a conversation / bragging piece on their home.

With the fan all they have done is put the blades in the base and blow the air out of a hoop with a slit in it, big deal. How many people have had unbearable difficulty with a normal fan?

Also they didn't invent the bladeless fan, Toshiba did more than 30 years ago but people are gullible and think Dyson is a genius.

I brought this when they first made them, I returned it within 2 days. Now this is the 6th update, so I don't know what's improved, but I have a unknown vertical stood fan from JL that cost me £119 and I'm confident it is better in everyway than this.

As all the dust is hidden inside - cant see it - cant clean it
I bought a £13 one off Amazon prime, three minutes to assemble, works perfectly. If I'd had a budget of £120, I'd be celebrating having £100 spare cash for h**kers and blow :-)

But you can watch the tv through it! Sort of..
Dyson is a good British company but has lacked any real great invention since the bagless vacuum cleaner. They have improved hand dryers and I would say these fans are an improvement on a traditional fan. However they are not good value for money, maybe it is because they employ so many British workers? If they moved the rest of their operation to China they could probably half the price of all of their products. Is this what I want to see? NO WAY! If there is a market then keep on selling at high prices and keep on employing a few thousand people in Britain!

Probably lots of purchasers, or their partners returning them after deciding it really isn't worth ten times as much as a decent fan.
The ones in Tesco are the older model (GC701D40) The new improved one is GC713D40. However, apart from a display change, can't see any major changes between the latest model & the original.
Next time your in your PO sorting office, ask them how many Dyson vacuums they've got going back for service ....

I don't think they are an improvement on a traditional fan. Sure the permanent magnet motor should be much more efficient than the inefficient shaded pole motors used in many fans, but I suspect the efficiency gain of the motor would be more than countered by the air resistance from ducting the fast flowing air stream from it, and having noisy small fast rotating blades instead of the large slow rotating ones in a standard fan, and also by dust part clogging the ducting.

It's selling point is really gimmickry and looks.

Never seen this before, technology gets simpler and cheaper, Dyson comes up with an idea for making wind more complicated and more expensive, wow, wait till I take my idea of a can opener to the dragons, it will cost £300 and have 400 parts to it

Pretty sure all of Dyson's products are made in the far east...... which makes them even more ludicrously overpriced.

Sorry my mistake... They are manufactured in Malaysia but research and development, testing and business headquarters is in Britain. When they moved the manufacturing out to Malaysia the prices were reduced. If they moved the whole company out there then maybe it would reduce all the prices again.
£120 for a desk fan???......Hahaha!

Rarely any, dyson only allow shipping back for service/repair if they don't have any engineers covering your local area.

​Not being funny but is a bit of dusting on a traditional fan worth paying an extra £105 for one of these?Somehow I doubt it but being a man city supporter you wouldn't understand about wasting money lol X)
seen the £300 hair dryer?
