It's getting hot and i'm sure i'm not the only one with an appartment which is way too warm in the night…
the Dyson AM06/07 is at the moment on the top of my list, but i wouldn't mind a cheaper version…

Vornado are highly recommended in the US but the UK prices aren't great. The 633 is the cheapest here - http://www.conrad-electronic.co.uk/ce/en/product/275868/?WT.srch=1&WT.mc;_id=sea_shoppingWT.srch=1&WT.mc;_id=google_search_UK&scamp;=shopping&saddg;=home-garden&gclid;=CjwKEAjwka67BRCk6a7_h_7Pui8SJABcMkWRdwlGIDOezkqpvAaoj0_jLyBwANyaaizlvGoOfEPXnBoCVbTw_wcB

thx mate, i guess the concept with air circulation behind those vornados makes more sense than a simple fan. U have one of them yourself byte?

@Nobuyoshi
which one? Dyson or vornado?

Yeah I have one , I have a east facing bedroom and it's boiling during this time of year and I just stick it on with the window open and the fan circulates the air.

It's a tenner cheaper on German Amazon which you can order through with no problem.

You might want to wait until after the referendum because if the outcome is remain the pound might strengthen, but that's total speculation on my part.

The proidee site is a good source, GB plug but only the 660, which unless you have a specific need for a pedestal should be good enough.

Cheers Dee, I would get any of the Vornados but the missus wants one that is aesthetically pleasing; for Christ's sake, so she wants one of the Tower models. Emailed Vornado in Germany to see if they ship to the UK and how much they cost.
