The Lasko 2551 tower fan has nice curved design but unfortunately common design. You may find many tower fan of same design as this Lasko tower fan model. The design is not as unique as Vornado Air Circulator or Dyson Tower Fan. It looks like The outside body of this fan made of the cheap plastic material. The front grill of this fan doesn’t look good. The key or bottom at the top does not add any value to improve the appearance of the tower fan. The fan is available in two different colors. One is fake wooden and another is silver color. The fake wooden facade design on this tower looks better than silver. The wooden color looks unique, stylish and classic. The indication lights at the top of the fan work perfectly. But the ionization indicator light is too bright at night. This can hamper your sleeping. Wish that it doesn’t come with any ionization indicator light.

Even noisier is the box units that used to sit in windows and still exist in older buildings. This device is substantially quieter than those allowing you to watch TV and have conversations without being disrupted. On the other hand, this device is still a little bit louder than the Dyson tower fan models that simply push the air instead of generating their own breeze. While you can definitely still hear the motor running, it is quiet.
