Moves a lot of air, is quiet, and best of all, it's made in America
on February 25, 2015
I bought this after reading the reviews here and because this fan is made in the USA. I'm so sick of inferior, and often dangerous, expensive junk that comes from China.This fan moves air and does not have any of the problems that come with metal fans. I previously had a 20" Workforce fan purchased at Home Depot. That really moved air, like a mini-hurricane. But at high speed it vibrated. I like the fact that this fan is plastic, is lightweight, and at its highest speed, does not vibrate.
It really moves air and it isn't noisy. At the highest speed, it sounds like a fan moving a lot of air, which seems like white noise and not really annoying. But at the lower speed, which still moves a fair amount of air, it's quiet. I'm going to buy a second one as soon as the weather turns warmer here.
It's very stable and you can reposition it from the base, which clicks it into place. From the other reviews, it is easy to take apart for cleaning. That's something you cannot really do with the metal fans that are often very difficult to take apart and reassemble. It has a thermally protected motor, and it does not use a lot of wattage, which is something that cannot be said for the metal fans that always come with a three-prong plug. This is two-prong.
All in all, we're very happy with this purchase. Thanks to all the other reviewers and those who answered my questions.
