It's exactly what I was looking for. It releases cold air and is adjustable. It's very easy to use. It's also significantly better than the previous version I bought a few years ago because it doesn't leak water as easily, it's colder, it's more adjustable, and it doesn't break. This fan works amazing. I put it on my nightstand and sleep so well because it's so quiet and gives the coolest air. I just love it I would buy another one.
