See the detail section of this question. does it have a remote control?

Lasko 4916 Desktop Wind Tower Oscillating Fan does the above fan have the remote control?

Answer : this fan does not have remote control.

Answer : No

Answer : no

Answer : No

Answer : nope

Answer : No remote. 2 on-board buttons. Button 1: Push 1 time and fan comes on at high setting. Pushing button 1 again reduces fan to medium setting. Pushing button 1 again reduces fan to lowest setting. Button 2: Push once and oscillation turns on. Push button 2 again and oscillation cuts off. There also is not a built in timer. This is a desktop fan, not a room fan therefore a remote control is not necessary. I do not recommend this fan as a room fan because you will find the amount of air moved anemic, but as a desktop fan it is great, especially on low setting with oscillation turned on.

Great Fan

I have had one of these for about 10 years now. I use it at least 8 hours a day at my office desk and it is finally starting to get a little squeak. I am glad to see that they are still available and am ordering a new one.

A really nice, quiet little fan that circulates the air without creating a whirlwind. I have a small, stuffy office at work, and this fan has made life much more comfortable without ever so much as blowing a paper off my desk. I like it a lot!

Neato DESKTOP fan!

This is a desktop fan with a very small footprint relative to most other oscillating fans suitable for desktop/personal type use, which is the application for which it was intended. As a desktop fan it is a pretty sweet package. If you try to use this as a room fan you are definitely going to find it anemic because it is a personal fan. Lasko also makes high velocity tower fans that are designed for whole room use. Keep in mind with this item that the whole point of a desktop fan is that it generates a gentle focused breeze you can feel in your personal workspace and does so without making much racket or blowing papers all over the office. This design while a few years old is still modern looking and fits well in a contemporary office environment. When used as intended I've found it to be a pretty good unit that does what it says.\n\nFEATURES: There are two control buttons nestled together in an inverted pyramid shape. The larger button on the left is the main control button. Pushing once turns the fan on at the highest setting while another push takes it to medium and a third push puts it in low. The second smaller button to the right turns the oscillation on and off. In oscillation mode only the base remains stationary and the upper 2 sections of the unit with the two vents rotate in unison in an arc of roughly 70 degrees taking 10 seconds to complete one complete oscillation cycle of left to right and right to left. There are three soft plastic gripper "anti-skid" feet which are supposed to keep it from sliding when you push the control buttons, but if you press the buttons harder than actually needed to operate the buttons the unit will scoot across the desk a little. But once you learn to stop punching at it the scooting stops. The vents are in two different sections and the entire top vent section will TWIST to aim at about 35 degrees left or right of the orientation of the bottom vent. The power cord is 6 feet long with a 2-prong polarized plug.\n\nOPERATIONAL OBSERVATIONS: The low setting is reasonably quiet making just a low level whir. The fans on my desktop computer make more racket than this does on low. When you try to use this as a room fan you are probably going to use the high setting which is noisier. Medium is at least twice as noisy as low and high is about four times as noisy as the low setting. Low is fine on a desktop most of the time. If you've just come in from lunch bump it to medium for a while until you cool down a bit and then take it back down to low.\n\nThe oscillation function is nice but not unique at all. However the twist to adjust function of the top section changing the orientation of the vent is unique and it allows you to point the two vents at different angles on the same axis. Once you have the vents set correctly for your work position you can feel four breezes on each full oscillation cycle instead of two. No matter the speed setting on mine the oscillation function adds no noise at all compared to non-oscillation mode and the oscillation cycle remains at 10 seconds.\n\nCONS: The two vents on this Lasko have fixed louvers, meaning you can not direct the airflow up or down, so the air blows straight out. On your desk the breeze will hit your chest and face but not the top of my head. I am deducting half a star for the fixed vent louvers. If I could adjust the angle it would be nearly perfect!\n\nAnother half-star is deducted because this fan looks like it will be a bear to clean and oil. I live in the south and here you need fans to survive, so you take care of them. I clean and oil my fans at least annually. My last desktop fan was my dad's 1960's GE model that finally started getting noisy (bearings shot) so I decided to retire it. This Lasko looks like a real workbench project to disassemble, clean, oil and reassemble compared to a traditional blade fan. I'm not looking forward to it. Might be easier to buy a new one every few years.\n\nCOMPARISON TO OTHER DESKTOP FANS: I bought mine at the local Wal-Mart store. They had a lot of different fans from different makers out of the box and set up for you to try out using only two available outlets. So a pair of fans was the most I could simultaneously compare. There were fans of all sizes and types including bladeless, tower, mini-tower, box-fans and your traditional oscillating tabletop fans that are cheaply made cosmetic imitations of the 1960's GE fan I was replacing. There was a Retro-style tabletop fan that looked very 30's art deco, but even on the lowest speed it made a heck of a metallic clanging racket that was noisier than the old GE with bad bearings. There is another retro art deco fan I wanted to look at made by Hunter, but this store didn't have any. My criteria for selection was compactness, quietness and moving enough air that I could feel it without blowing papers across the room. The only other fans that were as small, oscillated and moved adequate air were either noisier, moved way too much air or had a much larger footprint. The only other fan that I felt I could use was the one Dyson tabletop fan I tried. The Dyson would have worked perfectly but the Lasko was one-tenth the cost. While not the conversation piece the bladeless Dyson would be, nor as quiet, the Lasko is otherwise ideal for my need and is working out well. There was also a Bionaire bladeless model that is more compact than the Lasko, it oscillates moving an almost equal amount of air but it is at least three times noisier than the Lasko while also costing twice as much. The noise knocked the Bionaire out of the running regardless of the price. There were 20 or so different fans there to try, and of the dozen I actually tried out which would fit space-wise, this Lasko was the one I picked for desktop use. It is very affordable but I would have paid up to $100, it is also the second most quiet I tried and it has a compact design.\n\nBRAND LOYALTY: I have a Lasko High Velocity Fan that will practically blow your clothes off on high setting and a Lasko Oscillating Tower Heater that I also like. They have both been good products that I would buy again. My positive experiences with these other Lasko products was reassurance that I was probably making a good choice. Time will tell about this fan though. I certainly don't expect it to last as long as that old GE fan did, mainly because nothing is made to last that long anymore.\n\nMADE IN CHINA: These Lasko fans are made in China like most of the compact Lasko items. The larger Lasko items, like stand fans are made in the USA. I'd be willing to pay more for a quality compact USA made desk fan exactly like this one.\n\nWARRANTY: The warranty is one year like all Lasko items. If you get one of these and it seems too noisy you should exchange it right away where you bought it because mine is almost as quiet as the Dyson. If you can't exchange it, use the Lasko warranty service. On low I can hear the air moving but that is about all I hear.

Great fan

Unfortunately the cooling system at work has been on the fritz for a couple of days. I stayed comfortable with my Lasko Desktop tower fan. I love it. Didn't leave my office many time, but when I did....I was back soon sitting under the cooling breeze.

I just used the fan for the first time this morning. I am using it in the second floor master bathroom where the air conditioner does not reach very well. It should keep me cooler in the summer. It oscillated well and seems to be fine even at the low fan speed. It is not too loud so I can still hear the t.v. over the fan.

Smart buy...

I bought this fan because my other one went out on me. I chose this brand because while I was checking out at a retailer I felt this breeze that reminded me of being back home with the windows open smelling the ocean air. The checkout associate had a full size one but since I wanted two I opted for this size (two small for the price of one big). It works just as well. I placed one in the living room to see how forceful the breeze was and within minutes my boyfriend and my son, who were lounging around, fell asleep! A definate smart buy to get a few minutes of piece :)\nOne down is it's a little louder then a regular fan. No bother to me because it drowns out any outside noise but some may find it a little noisey.

Desk fan

Great size and strong air flow

Exactly what I wanted. Has all the features i need

Exactly what I wanted. Has all the features I need. I use this fan every day at work. It's great!

great little fan

Love that the top can be twisted separately. Quiet and cools great.

Not a great bedside fan

I purchased this as a bedside fan early last yr. Thought it would save space on my nightstand vs the round metal noisy one I had. With only a few nights use it started to make an annoying tick/rattle. So, I tried laying it down. Then I tried WD40. The noise never went away. Now, if I was to run it on high only (which I don't at night) this would be a great fan to have. Still working so that is a plus.

Perfect to sit on a desk.

Love it the perfect size for a desk. Love the fact that it rotates and more thanone speed.

Great in tight spaces

The fan is a "tower". It also rotates and uses less space than a regular fan due to it's shape. this fan has 2 sections to it that increase the radius of the wind space. I use it by my computer and it is sot so disturbing to my paperwork, while creating a comfortable environment.

Great fan !!!!!!!!

We got this fan on sale in Walmart one year ago. Works great and comfy for using.This is the best fan we had so far.

exactly what I was looking for

I love the Lasko Desktop Tower Fan. It is small and quiet, yet provides the comfort of a much larger device.

excellent table fan

This fan exceeded my expectation. It's not too noisey, the adjustments enable a wide spread of fan air, three speeds, and a lighted switch. I would recommend this fan for a desktop/cubicle or even a small room (on a table).


I purchased this fan as I have numerous last branded products. This fan was cheaply made as it rattled and squeaked straight out of the box. This fan has gone back to the store for a refund.

Princess Kimberly

This product was rather pricey for a simple desk fan, and the way in which the product was sent to my residence was unacceptable! They simply put the boxes in the mail, without any sort of outer wrapping... even though they knew the two fans were going to be gifts. When the fans arrived, the boxes looked like they had been through the wringer.\nWith that said, my father has enjoyed his fan tremendously. According to him... he is the envy of his co-workers.

can be placed almost anywhere

I got this fan because I liked the split top, you can direct it so it feels like its turning farther, on it's lowest speed you cant even hear it running. like the tower so much I purchased three more to set up around the house.

Not a good product.

This is a cheep piece of merchandise. it is very poorly made.

looks nice and works great as a desk fan.

The fan works great as a desk fan. The "hi" setting seems more like a med or Low. Not ideal if you really need air blown to cool you but for a office so it doesn't whip papers all around or a light breeze it's perfect. Very quiet. Works great for my mom also in a care center.
