Big cross-section of fans under $1000: Midea, Emmett, Schuler's, Alizée, who will win?

Five electric fan comparison review, in fact, when doing this selection, we are also quite torn in our hearts, now the differences between these fans are too small, the wind speed is relatively close, the noise value is also not much difference, in fact, there is really nothing to compare. But we came up with a tricky angle to compare the experience of using the mainstream fans on the market.

Product Information

The five fans we chose this time, two from the United States, the remaining three from Emmett, Schuler's, Alice, respectively. These five products are priced from 500 to 800 yuan, or relatively close to the price range of mainstream fans. Five product brands are also well-known companies, these will be redundant, look directly at the comparison.

Appearance design

First of all, in terms of appearance and design, there is one that surprises all our colleagues in the office. I talked about it before in another issue: the design of such products as fans has not changed for years, but this time we saw something a little different, this is the triangle fan of Schuler's.

If these five products are placed in the home, can not say 100%, at least most people will look at it a few more, or even as an ornament.

This fan is supported by three wood grain style iron stand, the triangle will be more stable, it stands very stable. The other four fans are added to the base with heavy objects to keep the fan stable. If there are children at home, in comparison, the design of this three-legged fan will be safer.

Of course it has its drawbacks, although the sweeper can pass, but it does take up more space, there is a give and take well. Improve the value and security, the sacrifice is the footprint. As for the rest of the four, it is imagined that the fan should have the appearance.

Adjustability

In terms of height, these five are adjustable, we also actually measured, the most exaggerated or Schuler's tripod design, its tripod height can be halved, and even directly removed, placed on the table as a desktop fan trial.

The disassembly and assembly process is still considered fast and does not take too much time.

The remaining four is the traditional design scheme, of course, not that they are not good, a key adjustment is very convenient, most fans are doing the same, just lacking so a little innovation.

Then in terms of rotation angle, the best performance of up and down rotation is Emmett and Schuler's, Emmett up and down 90°, Schuler's up and down 100°. The more general performance is Alice, only 15 ° up and down can be adjusted. In the left and right rotation, Schuler's and Alice's performance is the best, both left and right 120 °.

Wind speed/noise measurement

About the wind speed and noise, although they are similar, but still need to be measured. Five fans under the maximum gear maximum wind speed of the air outlet measured the best performance is Emmett, followed by Alice and Schuler's, the two products of the United States slightly inferior a little, the overall difference is not great.

In the noise test, we adjusted the five fans to the same air speed of 1m/s, roughly equivalent to the air volume of sleep mode, the noise performance of the five products is basically the same, very close.

Then adjust the wind speed to 3m / s, equivalent to the air volume of daily use, this time the better performance is the United States of America's two products, Schuler's and Alice is also good.

Use experience

We have also experienced all these fans in depth, so we will talk to you about our subjective feelings. First of all, it's the Midea (GAF24DR), which has a design that is very close to my heart - the automatic return to the right side of the switch off, which is really friendly for users with slight OCD.

Another beauty (GDE24PF), which has a special remote control storage area, is also a very reflective of the details of the design.

Emmett's impression on me is that: the air volume is very large, of course, the noise comes with it. The number of gears, 32 gears, each time you adjust the remote control to press frantically, it is recommended that the manufacturer can be compressed, I personally recommend 6 to 8 gears is more appropriate.

This fan from Schuler's is like a Lego block, each part can be disassembled for thorough cleaning, and it can also be turned off for automatic return to positive and remote control storage.

Last but not least is Alizée, which is a Japanese brand. In recent years, many people are in pursuit of Japanese craftsmanship, but in terms of the performance of this product, I really think it is not as good as our domestic products, full of plastic sense, workmanship is also very general. Although there is no big flaw, but there is nothing to praise.

Summary Recommendations

Finally to summarize, the five products have their own merits, the United States of the two is more moderate some, wind speed is not large, but the noise control is very good, is the way we know the fan.

Emmett is the opposite, air volume, noise is slightly noisy, this depends on personal needs and use of the scene.

As for the Schuler's, it is impossible to use the traditional fan standards to look at it, it has both the properties of home furnishings, if you are a value party, the pursuit of better product quality, you can learn about this product.

Finally, there is Alizée, which is a good experience, as well as the Japanese Minebea motor. But the workmanship and texture is not as good as it should be, and if you don't care, you can certainly consider it.
