I’m one of those people who loves to have a fan on year-round, whether it’s warm or cold outside. I love the white noise and I most definitely enjoy having air constantly moving so things don’t get stuffy. Dreo was kind enough to send me their latest and quite possibly greatest fan with the Dreo Pilot Max Tower Fan. If you’re looking for the perfect fan to compliment your AC or just love circulating air like I do, this is the one to beat.
After taking it out of the box and putting the no-tools-required base together (it easily snaps two halves together to form a circle base), attaching it to the fan and plugging in the AC adapter, I had this massive, 42” tower fan up and running in no time. As soon as I powered it on with the handy remote that comes with it, its mini LED screen lit up and I could immediately feel colder air coming from it as though it had a mini AC built into it.
Thanks to having a brushless motor with a redesigned impeller wheel, this beast is able to move roughly 1,475 cubic feet of air per minute while putting out wind speeds up to 26 ft. a second. That would explain why the air felt so good when I turned it on. This is my first time using or feeling a tower fan like this, as I’m so used to the old school blade fans like my tried and true Vornado one.
Even better is how quiet the Dreo Pilot Max is, as it has twelve speeds with the lower settings being nearly undetectable to the point I thought it wasn’t on, and the highest setting is only around 40-some decibels which is simply amazing for how powerful it is and reminds me a lot of their Macro Pro air purifier.
If you have this somewhere such as the living room, this fan has everyone covered literally thanks to having four oscillation settings that allow it to go from 30, 60, 90, and even 120 degrees to make sure everyone stays cool. Even better is that it has settings such as standard mode that gives all the speed and power it can, and a natural mode that simulates a windy breeze from outside by changing fan speeds based on the temperature.
There’s also a sleep timer mode where you can adjust how many hours (up to 12) it stays on before it winds down every thirty minutes and shuts off, and quite possibly the coolest mode (pun intended) is the energy saving auto mode that detects the temperature of the air and adjust its speeds accordingly which is pretty sweet. You can also adjust oscillation settings for these modes as well, and the back panel is removable for easy cleaning.
The Dreo Pilot Max Tower Fan is everything you could want in a fan and more. It’s tall and powerful with all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a normal fan, but kicks it up a few notches by adding in features you would find on an AC unit such as the slew of settings, the cool LED screen and handy remote. Most of all, you’ll love how quiet it is, making it a fan you’ll quickly become a fan of.
