John Goerzen: Why I Buy $100 Fans (Review: Vornado)

July 17, 2009

With regard to: frivolously buying exactly the things I want. The original post.

Like anyone else, I try to find the best deal on things. Sometimes the best deal isn’t the thing that’s cheapest up front. I work for a company that makes some of the world’s best lawn mowers, for instance, but they aren’t the cheapest.

Anyhow: after a series of cheap $20-$50 Walmart fans failing in various ways (buttons falling off, motors starting to take a minute to get up to half speed, etc.), I bought my first Vornado fan back in 1997. They’re expensive, but I think worth it in the long run.
