  1. Hi,

    I got my two sets of PO Eco fan (including light kits) at $450 nett each at Radson. Not too far off from the 1 for 1 promotion. Of course, the models might be different. Mine is the 3 blade white fan (with the wing tip slightly bent upwards), base is the cylinder type.




  2. I have just completed reno, not yet moved in. I tried the fan for a few hours, seems ok though. One thing to note is that the base that is attached to the ceiling is a soft rubber casing, although it looks like a hard plastic casing from the catalog. I didn't notice it until it was delivered and installed...

    And the remote controller cannot be shared. I have two fans from PO Eco, exactly the same model. But each controller can only control its own fan and not the other....

    My advice is not to buy anything above SGD 200 on tao bao as you cannot see the items before you pay. And you cannot ask for a refund if the product does not look the same

    Just to share, I have some furnitures which arrived a few weeks ago from TB - study table, study chair and 2 customised bedside tables (all around 200-400 each). Other than the bedside tables which has some scratches on the laminates (which i am trying to mend using some sort of colored wood fillers), the other two are pretty decent. Considering the price savings which we are getting, i think i can still stomach the flaws (each bedside table cost me around $200. Similar materials in SG will cost me ~$580).

    Of course, Eric is right that you cannot see the items before you pay and refund is difficult or even impossible. However, you have to consider the potential savings and see if it is worthwhile to take the risk.



  4. Hi,

    I am thinking of custom making my dining table, but i am unsure what kind of materials i should use for the top? Laminate, glass, wood etc... I considered a solid wood table, but when i go to the factory to choose the wood, the color is simply off (too orangy and dark for my liking).

    I am thinking about durability and scratch and heat resistance. The style that i am looking for is more towards minimalism.

    Any advice please? Thanks

    Silicone is already water resistant so how can mould attach to it?

    Silicones have slight porosity, ie tiny holes which allow the spores to attach itself to the silicon. If it is not cleaned, it will turn mouldly after some time. The silicon itself is still water resistant, but the bonding to the surface that it is attached to may be worn out.

    Anti mould silicone can help as these contains some fungicide to kill the mould but not sure how long it can last. My personal experience is 1-2 years, but there are people who claimed to last 5-10 years. My guess is depending on how humid the surface is (?)



  6. Hi all,

    Would need further advice. I have 3 quotes for comparisons:

    #1 - $1.8K

    #2 - $1.4 to 1.6K depends on size

    #3 - $800+

    All 3 quoted me 304 stainless steel materials. I am just wondering if it's possible for the price to vary by so much (> 50%)? Is there any catch, or anything that i must take note of?





  7. Hi lightningbolt,

    Yes, i agree, it's not as expensive as spin/haiku, within my price range for a DC ceiling fan with a decent warranty coverage. Imagine if i spend on Spin or haiku for my 2 bedrooms, I would have burnt a big hole in my pockets.. I got two PO Eco for my 2 bedrooms and now looking for another ceiling fan for my living room. I am thinking of splurging for a haiku (60") since my living (cum dining) area is quite big (~6m x 7m). But is haiku really worth that $$? I'm new to the ceiling fan space and would love to hear your (or anyone) opinion? The price is holding me back, plus the lack of feedback.

    For the record and those who are keen, the 3 years warranty is optional (i.e. you have to top up for additional 2 years). I just got the default 1 year warranty. (But it does give me some comfort that the manufacturer is willing to extend the warranty - at a cost. At least they are reasonably comfortable with their own products)

    Thanks and regards

  8. Hi,

    I am looking for ceiling fans (similar design as haiku or spin etc) and was recommended to PO Eco fan. I was told that this is a local company which initially specialised in downlights but recently started to deal in ceiling fans (Supposedly made in China i think)

    The DC fans come with 10 years warranty on motor and 3 years on site for others.

    Does anyone has experience with this brand and how is it? The design is not as nice as haiku nor spin, but it is still something that i can accept.

    Thanks and regards

  9. Hi all,

    Would like to tap on the collective wisdom of the RT members..

    I would like to install ceiling fans in my living cum dining room (around 4.4m x 7 m), and 2 bedrooms (4.4 x 3 m)

    Living room - I am planning to install a single 60" haiku because of the big area and aesthetic reason, - i know this is expensive, but i do not have many choices for a 60" fan... Any one has any other recommendation?

    Bedrooms - I am undecided, other than knowing that i need a light kit for the fan as well. I presume that a 48-52" fan will be big enough. Should I go for DC or AC fan? I know that DC fan saved more power and has longer warranty (10yrs for most models), but its price is also 2-3 times more than an AC. Will the power saving be big enough to offset the high cost? What brands should i be looking out for? KDK used to be reliable, but there are complaints that the capacitor spoiled easily after 1-2 years? I am unwilling to go above $200 for an AC fan or $400 for a DC fan. Any suggestions on the brands and models please? Where can i find them? I don't really like fanco kind of design (too curvy for my liking) and will only consider 3 blades design.

    Thanks and regards

  10. On the internal laminate, you need to sit down and discuss this with your ID. Let him know that both you and him have missed out on this requirements - it's not competely your fault or his fault. Do some top up if necessary and get it the way you intended to. Because if you don't, you will really regret it in future.

    For the workmanship, it is not acceptable to me, especially if it poses a hazard for young kids. I assume you have visited completed units by your current ID? Do you recall if it is the similar case then?

  11. Hi,

    Just sharing what I have found out so far as i am also planning for a major renovation for my house next year. Some of the things what you can consider are:

    1. touch activated switches
    2. motorised curtains
    3. motorised pole systems for hanging clothes
    4. smart home - i think there is an IDA exhibition at Esplanade Xchange which features smart home.. may give you some idea though

    Dont really have a estimated price, but you can considering purchasing from Taobao/Tmall where the cost of such items are very very low compared to what you can get in SG (around 50-70% lower). Two things to take note: (1) quality cannot be assured (2) some things might not be "approved" for installation by Spring Singapore (e.g switches which require some form of safety test). Since your dad is a contractor, he would probably know if these are allowed. To me, safety is the most important..

    In any case, do take time to browse through the threads. You will find tons of valuable information.
