This tower fan is among one of my favorite purchases on Amazon. I was looking for a fan to use in our living room while I do my cardio exercising during quarantine lockdown. This fan is everything I could ask for plus more! It comes with a remote that you can use to operate the fan. You could also use the buttons on the tower fan to control it as well. I prefer the remote control so that I can operate it from across the room. The base was easy to secure on the bottom of the fan, ensuring that it will not topple over while it is in use. There are 3 different speeds and 3 different modes. My favorite mode is the sleep mode. Every 30 minutes, the speed decreases so you can fall asleep. Natural mode is great too, because it feels like a natural breeze. The auto mode is one of the best features. You can actually set the temperature so that the fan will automatically stop once the room as cooled down to the temperature you choose. The fan ocillates at the touch of a button too. There is also a timer which is easy to use. I love how quiet this fan is...the sound lulls me to sleep. I am so glad I bought tgis. It is very high quality for the price that I paid, and I would highly recommend this if you are looking to purchase a top-of-the-line tower fan.
