I expect this'll be cold due to it being an expensive fan but it's cheaper than they normally go for!

Over £300 elsewhere. Well spotted!
Can't find it any cheaper than £299.99, great find OP
Wow obviously a good price but what the hell does this do for that extra ( lots of ) that your normal pedestal ( apart from the noise ) fan doesn't do?

I'm obviously out of touch with fans X)

Heat added all the same

Lower noise.
No buffeting.
Aesthetics.

These are considered value for money to some people, not always only about cheapest prices.
1.5% quidco just to add
Good if you have kids or pets running about, no "blades". Its a big unit though.
The Dyson Fan-E

Provides air flow by a rapidily rotational element which causes displacement. Clever technology attaches this to something which spins when you switch it on. The patent places this all this within a big plastic 0....
Now for the really clever bit, a big piece of old rope that Dyson charges the foolish $$$$$ for.

But when the proverbial hits the fan there is not as much fun.
Tempted... must not order!
Always wanted one but can't justify the price! Heat though
If Apple Made Fans.
Still way to expensive..
If this doesn't go cold, it's going back.

Oh right - many thanks.
Obviously you are an expert of the product - I love your features - any actual benefits?! oO

I didn't mention the price - just what were the advantages for all that extra cash? Nice of you to point out the obvious - ' this isn't about price' X)
I should rate this cold because u made me buy this

Lower noise? Have you owned one? Unless this is on the lowest setting, then its akin to having a lawnmower on.

I think you're confusing value for money with desirability. This fan is an example of the Veblen effect, i.e, people want it because it is expensive; that does not bestow value for money, which is fit for purpose at minimum cost. The purpose of a fan is to move air, which can be achieved for far less than £179!

​In fairness it's not just a fan with a brand name on it, so I don't think people want one because it's expensive. They want one because it's an interesting design. I wouldn't mind one, unfortunately I'm not so well off that I can justify the price, but some people are.

Those ARE the benefits to some people. That was my point.

The purpose of a watch is to tell the time, which a £5 casio will do relatively reliably. However, there are those that see an old used Rolex for £20,000, think it's a bargain and snap it up. It might be the brand, maybe shape, maybe vintage style, maybe they're indeed just foolish idiots... point being, that's still value for money for them. Their choice. If people want something and willing to pay X for it, that's their value for money threshold.

I've got the AM05... hot/cold version... I think it's great!! Heats the room quickly and evenly. It is loud though. haven't used the cool setting much yet...
Thermostat. Windows.........Jeeez
Dyson claims it's bladeless but contains an impeller in the base which has blades.

Interesting design but it's noisy and overpriced.

Dyson specialises in solving problems where there was none and patenting his solution so only he can build them of very poor quality whilst charging a premium.

Red flags when you buy a vacuum cleaner and the manufacturers website lists dozens of replacement parts all priced up ready to ship when yours breaks down.

At least he came to his senses over the colour schemes remember this monstrosity? My Miele washer looks pretty uninteresting but it doesn't make you vomit and it's 16 years young. Who honestly still uses one of these today? Few as they cost a grand and like most Dyson products were very poor value for money so they aborted making them. Thank god.

180 quid... for a fan!

I think I'm not in touch with society these days. You can go on holiday for that.
James Dyson isn't so much an inventor (what's he invented? A vacuum-cleaner, already been done. A fan? Already been done.) but he is good at creating an 'aura' around his products that means a lot of gullible people will pay a premium for what is a fairly standard product. Albeit a product that has some gimmick which they're made to believe is groundbreaking, but really isn't (cyclone, 'digital motors', 'bladeless fan') and other ****.

This year sees the much anticipated Dyson Wheel. Unlike ordinary wheels, the Dyson wheel [insert non-existent problem here and his expensive way of overcoming it..]
value for money . You've got to question if tesco can afford to discount by half the demand is not very high and there taking a hit on product of profit margin at RRP is so great that even discounting by half their still making a profit. really can anyone really think this is so 30 x better than one at £30. think not people buying because they think it looks cool ( firm over function) . To me functions and value are what drives me to purchase not how it looks
Love the design but I don't trust Dyson quality. Plasticky junk in my experience.

If you have cash to throw around you can buy interesting designs of any object but with the appropriate build quality. But most people don't know designers so end up buying whatever's on the high street. Madeindesign might be a good place to start for some. Lots of online stores like this now, loads of fab kit.

The Casio is value for money because it is fit for purpose at minimum cost; the Rolex may be of higher quality, and may be much more desirable, but it certainly is not value for money, regardless of the perception of the individual who desires it.

So it's basically a bit of a status symbol then? Much like the way BMW Mercedes owners feel about their cars.
