The Dyson Air Multiplier AM06 is a re-make from Dyson AM01 by adding a sleep timer, a quieter motor that can reduce the noise up to 70% compared to the AM01 unit and consume less than 40% power.
While a casual table fan with blade is 10 fold cheaper than Dyson Air Multiplier AM06, let’s check for the benefits of this unit to see whether a table fan with such expensive price is a good choice or not.
