Are the Lasko and Stanley fans the same, other than the color?  Or do they spec out differently?

I've never looked that deep into the difference but from what I can tell, they are the same fan. My Lasko's are bigger - like this one: Lasko fan
and the Stanley is like this one: Stanley fan
- so they will be different in that way...

The Stanley does the job well- the Lasko's are a bit big but they are VERY powerful - they BLOW!

I have the lasko U15610
It puts out a decent beam of air on low and super amount of air on high but it gets a little noisy there is a cheaper smaller one in the lasko run that doesn't do as many CFM and it's a little quieter

Laughing at fan experiences...


Band was set up in a garage playing to the outside party.
During the break, I was listening to the subs.  Whump... Whump...  Whump...
Looked around at a couple things - nothing to explain the noise
then realized a slow turning ceiling fan was about 10' over the band.


We used to have to use fans near the stage - 18" bladed fans...
Not only did they make a ton of racket on their own, but chopped the sound like a food processor.  Sounded like phasing to the performers because of the irregular reflections, and a weird chopped sound elsewhere. 


But we kept the airstream off the mics!


The squirrel cage fans like the Lasco do appear to be the best solution.

Being we do the Sound for the stage and FOH  I feel the fan should be the performers fan and problem.  not the Sound company. 
Any fans that I use will be on mixer and Amps to keep them cool.  Then for me working the show.

Chris uses the Stanley one discussed here and each band member has one just like it. I use a little rechargeable one for when I cannot be near an outlet and that has been great - lasts a full length show. It works well because I can clamp it to my table/stand to keep it close to me.
