Just received the fan a few days ago and it is a godsend. Our condo building is older and we cannot contol the heat. Our unit is usually between 78 to 80 degrees in temperature during the winter. With this December and January being so warm, the heat inside is even more insiduous.
The fan is a great shape, with the exterior case resembling a large egg. The louvers allow the breeze to dissipate further than if it was used with just the blades alone. There are multiple fan speeds, and it quickly brings in the cool air from outside and makes the apartment more tolerable. Remarkably quiet for the amount of power and speed it generates.
The fan looks great, works great, and is a good value for the money. Skip the ugly box fan and get this little gem.
I have had my first one for almost 7 years and it still runs like it was brand new. It's incredibly quiet, but powerful, and instead of oscillating (which always keeps me awake) it has rotating louvers that work far better at redirecting the breeze. I highly recommend this fan.
I bought this fan based on the reviews and I have to say I was not disappointed. The great air circulation can lower the temperature in my bedroom in less than 20 minutes. A must have if you don't have AC.
