They are like 10 times the price. If they have air purifier function, thats its slightly more acceptable. They are expensive, but i kind of want to get one...

The blade arent visible, but there is one at the base. The only advantage I consider it to have is not cutting children's fingers.

If it's the standard bladeless fan ones, they don't purify the air. But if you're willing to spend even more money, they have an air purifying model.

 

My only concern with them is unless they actually have filters on the intake, you're going to have to take it apart once in a while to clean it since contrary to what they say, there are blades in the fan at the base. And it looks more annoying to take apart than regular fans.

I have a Dyson fan, and love it because it's easy to clean of dust (not a huge deal admittedly, but it's something) and is quiet. I'm not convinced it's actually better than a normal fan though (or the 10 fans you can buy for the same money combined), aside from aesthetically and stopping kids poking the blades.

 

I'd buy another, but perhaps the purifier one.

 

Edit: Just remembered, mine does sometimes creak when oscillating, I can't work out how to get it apart to sort that out - so perhaps that's something to bare in mind!
