Honeywell HT 900 Review 

 April 22, 2016

One of the best personal fans on the market right now is the Honeywell HT-900 model. That is thanks to the fact that this one works really well for cooling purposes, is made by a brand well known in this industry and comes with an affordable price point. For under $15 most people will be able to afford a fan of high quality.

Buyers over at Amazon rate this one highly at 4.3 out of 5 stars, and with over 5,000 buyer reviews available you should already know that this fan sells like hot cakes. It is small wonder then that this is in fact a best seller at that website.

Key Features of the HT-900


  • It measures Length:11.10 in, Width: 6.54 in, Height: 11.30 in so is big enough to deliver power and compact enough not to take up a great deal of space
  • It weights exactly one pound
  • I am not that much into fancy marketing titles like “TurboForce®” but this one has been designed to deliver the maximum amount of air movement
  • Works really well for personal cooling or in a small room
  • Many small fans of this nature make a lot of noise, but this one is considered by most reviewers to be pretty quiet
  • It is ideal whether to want to place it on a table or mount it on a wall.
  • The actual head of the fan pivots to 90 degrees with 3 different speeds
  • It uses a 7 inch blade

Before I buy any product I like to know what the warranty is. Like many of these types of fans this one comes with what is called a 1 year limited warranty. That means that the warranty will apply to repair or replacement of the product if it relates to defective workmanship or defective materials. It does not apply to any damage that results from commercial, abusive, unreasonable use or any supplemental damage.

Main Review of the Honeywell Turboforce

I have broken down the ratings given to it by buyers at Amazon so as you get a better general understanding of how they like or dislike this particular Honeywell model.

  • 5 stars – 63%
  • 4 stars – 17%
  • 3 stars – 8%
  • 2 stars – 5%
  • 1 star – 7%

It is clear from this that the large majority of buyers rate this one highly with 80% rated it at least 4 stars or higher. To understand the lower ratings better, I did some digging to find out what the main areas of concern were for thos disgruntled buyers.

What Buyers Didn’t Like about this Honeywell Model

There were a number of different issues and I have listed these below with an explanation:

  • Problems with the pivoting head – It seems to some buyers that the weight of the motor does not allow you to keep the air direction perpendicular or even slightly angled. It loses the grip and moves toward the ceiling when running and sometimes even just sitting on the table
  • Fan Head not holding position – some buyers stated that the hinge is not strong enough to hold the fan in a particular position
  • Unable to clean the fan – They get dirty according to buyers and neither the front nor the back can be opened to clean around the motor and blades. The blades can also get greasy and dirty and these can not be cleaned either.
  • Not great at moving air – some buyers were disappointed in the amount of air that it could move.

What Buyers Didn’t Like about this Honeywell Model

Honeywell HT-900About 10% of all reviews rated this one lowly, but the larger majority of around 80% rated this one highly. SO let’s have a look and see what they liked about it that some others did not: As above I have listed these below with a summary explanation:

  • Moves the air really well for a personal space – many buyers stated that the air flow was pretty good on this one for a small personal style fan
  • Does what it says on the tin – many buyers repeat that this one does exactly what it is supposed to.
  • Quiet – many buyers stated that there is a slight noise from this one, but that it was low and not intrusive. Some even said it helped drown out any external noises such as street noise.

Overall the general feedback on this model was that for the price they believed that it did what it was supposed to do, and for the price they thought it was very good value for money.

The majority of buyers stated all of the above but as you can see there were some who were not that impressed. Honeywell do have a reputation for making good products and this brand is one of the highest sellers in the USA market for many types of fans.

It would seem to me that this model is about expectation and individual use. I think it is handy to have around a bedroom or an office as it can help keep the air moving and that makes it feel cooler.
