Resumee

The AEG Stand Fan is a quite simple model, but it fulfils its purpose. Although the numerous functions can convince in the test, the optics could be designed much more appealing. In summary, it can be said that this is an inexpensive model that cools down during the summer months.

Pro

  • Light and quiet
  • Nature mode

Cons

  • No batteries included
  • Complete access to functions only with remote control
Fulfils its purpose, but is rather cheaply processed.

The VL 5668 S floor standing fan from AEG offers you among other things a natural and a sleep mode as special features.

Appearance

At first glance, the AEG stand fan does not appear to be of very high quality, which is confirmed by further testing. To ensure a solid and safe stand, the fan is simply too light. So it can happen that the feet fall off and the fan stands crooked. The model in black is equipped with a total of three rotor blades. The fan will be delivered disassembled. For the assembly, you need not only a screwdriver but also some patience, because this is quite laborious. What you like, however, is the extensively designed operating manual with valuable information on operation, assembly, commissioning, cleaning and warranty.

Refreshment Levels

The AEG VL 5668S stand fan has a total of three output levels. Furthermore, the model offers two special modes, the natural and the sleep mode. The nature mode is set so that the speed changes at certain intervals. In sleep mode, on the other hand, the running speed automatically slows down after 30 minutes of operation. The moderate volume is very pleasing, thanks to which you can also set up the device in the office without any problems. The air is sufficiently distributed thanks to the 90-degree oscillation angle.

Additional Information

On a positive note, the fan and remote control are supplied to you. The batteries must be purchased separately, as they are not included in the delivery. Using the remote control, you can turn the fan on and off and select individual speeds and modes. You can only select the timer and mode using the remote control; on the unit itself, you'll find additional buttons to turn it on and off and to adjust the speed. A storage compartment for the remote would have been nice; unfortunately, you won't find one.
