i bought this fan for my office when the AC unit was not working. It does a good job of moving alot of air- even on low. It isn't as quiet as I'd hoped but for the price it does the job. I had a little trouble getting the stand together and had to find someone with more hand strength to finish it. The pole is powder coated metal but everything else is plastic which makes it light weight. I wonder about the oscillating fan head- it rotates (maybe figure 8) rather than just moving back and forth. This must be why it can move so much air but it seems to be a little heavy for the weight of the stand and flops around a bit but doesn't seem to be getting worse. I have it on carpet in a vacant corner so it works well for me. I would be careful if i were using this near children though. All in all I'm pleased with my purchase and wouldn't hesistate to recommend the unit.
The fan is everything it says it is -- quiet, large, etc, but everything about it feels cheap. It was hard to assemble -- getting the front grill to line up with the rear grill and clip on correctly. Also, the motor/fan blade assembly is a little off-balance -- it vibrates. It's only a matter of time before that starts to cause problems.
I recently purchased a Lasko fan for my home. This actually is the second one I ordered this summer. The fan is quiet and does a wonderful job of cooling off my living room. It has been a great help to me during the really warm weather. Who knows, maybe next year I'll buy another one. I have recommended this fan, which looks good, performs well and is not too expensive to friends. I've told them to go to the computer and put in Overstock if they want a good buy.
I bought this fan for my Mother who lives in a board and care facility that does not have air conditioning. The fan brought much relief and it's size isn't to big for the small space she had available. It was delivered quickly and she is happy which makes me happy. Thank you Overstock for a reasonable price and quick delivery.
