Lasko Stanley 655704 Review

When you don’t think that the household fans and circulators you have at home have enough power – or perhaps you’re looking for a high-velocity fan that serves different purposes – you need something like Lasko’s Stanley 655704.

As advertised, this blower fan is “packed with features” to serve your “cooling, ventilating, exhausting, and drying” needs. But does it deliver good results? What do previous buyers say about their unit? Let’s find out in this Lasko Stanley 655704 review.

Key Features of the Stanley 655704

Here are the key features of the product.

Pivoting Fan Head

The airflow is multi-directional and can be easily controlled. Refer to the image on the right. As you can see, the blower head can be directed at different angles.

How exactly does it accomplish this?

Simply by flipping it down or clicking it up. In the manual, this action is described as a “forward” or “backward” movement depending on your preference.

Two Outlets

Beside the speed knob, are two outlets. These are helpful for your additional tools or extension cords when you need one.

Below these outlet are the text “10 AMP MAX.” Take note that the Stanley 655704 is equipped with a 10-amp breaker as a safety feature. If you accidentally use a tool that goes past the 10-amp limit, the breaker will trip.

3 Speeds

There are 3 speed settings to choose from. All you have to do is to twist or rotate the silver knob to select an option.

Consumer Feedback: Pros and Cons of the 655704

What do previous buyers say about this high-velocity centrifugal fan? We went through the comments and feedback section of a popular online retailer, and in summarized form, this is what we discovered about the product.

Pros and Cons

  • Is it noisy? “Noisy” is a subjective term, so some people may not agree that it’s surprisingly quiet for a centrifugal fan. Take a look at this video to have an idea of how much sound it makes when it’s turned on. Do you agree that it’s “kind of loud” as one person has said? Or do you think it’s quiet for a high-velocity fan?
  • Does it last? There are different answers as far as durability or lifespan is concerned. But to give you an idea, if it’s well-maintained, it can last 10 years according to one person.
  • When it comes to performance or cooling effect, the general feedback has been positive and good. One person said it’s like having a “mini AC.” Another one uses the word “powerful” to describe it, and says it gives out a lot of air. One person said it blows air extremely well.
  • This fan takes up very little space. Plus, it’s portable as well. It’s easy to carry it from one place to another. You can use it for camping or festivals as well, especially during the summer season.
  • At least two people said that one of the disadvantages of the Stanley 655704 is that it attracts dirt and dust and they get inside the unit. Disassembling it for cleaning may not be a good idea.

Other Comments

  • Because the Stanley 655704 has a powerful air output, an unexpected benefit is that it can be used to drive away mosquitoes, as one person has observed.
