Bought this fan for my home office, which measures 11' x 12" and has large, south facing bay windows. The temps this summer were higher than average, and I didn't want to run the central a/c just for one room. The Lasko fan was a perfect solution. It was important to me that the fan be quiet as I do alot of work over the phone. This fan has a soft purr. The remote control was another thing I really wanted, and I can adjust the level of the breeze, the timer and the motion control without having to get up from my desk. This has a round base that is about 14" wide, but otherwise the tower is slim and very nice looking, with a woodgrain front that compliments my furniture. Comparable units at big box discount stores were $30-$50 more than Overstock. I'm a happy buyer.
I bought this fan on a Wednesday morning around 10 am, I received my fan the very next day when I got home from work. You can't beat the super low shipping (or free depending on when you order) for next day delivery. The fan was very easy to assemble, although I would like if the base was a little more substantial than just a plastic disk, it still seems sturdy as long as you're not too rough with it. Very quiet on all settings and a great size for our living room or bedroom. The first setting is very strong considering the size of the fan, I don't think we will have to use it above the #2 setting most of the time. It will definitly do the job during those in between months when you don't want to turn the A/C on just yet. I love that there is a little space in the back of the fan for the remote too so that it doesn't get lost when not in use. I have been very satisfied with Overstock in the past and always search their website if I'm in need of something before shopping at regular stores (online or brick & mortar).
I love the LASKO fan line, I have several and I purchased this one for our bedroom beceause of the woodgrain trim and slim design. It's very quiet but very effecient and gets a good volume of air out right where I want it. I have a tall king bed so having a fan that will distribute the airflow higher up is what I needed and this one does the job and it's much quieter than some of the other fans in their line. Works much better than most other brands when it comes to air volume. I love the remote control too so I can turn it on and off from the bed. I purchased it from Overstock because I live in a rural town and fans are not available locally in winter so this was a great find. Thanks Overstock!

Quiet operation but awesome air flow. Had a similar fan made by other company but this model far exceeded any.

I have had this fan for over a year, and it runs every day during the many hot months in Houston. The Remote and all the many options it has are worthwhile. I have never had one problem with the fan, and you will not be disappointed with buying it.
The Good, The Bad & The Ugly.... Good; Very quiet as advertised, remote is very convenient and easy to assemble...only needed to screw in the bottom plate. The bad; doesn't pass the "White Noise" test -- See the Good.. ;) The Ugly; I can't clean the thing! I would have to unscrew a bunch of screws and put it back together?? No..can't do it...Vacuum does not work and the canned air trick is a joke! It's very dusty in the air intake grill in the back and I live in the desert so it's dusty and I need it on all the time...so it's caked...ugly. Overall ... it works steady. It's on nearly 24 hours a day all year. For the price and the sleekness...it's great... I wish I would have known that I couldn't clean it though.
I've been using this fan nearly every day in my office for a nearly a year. It's has a small footprint, very quiet and still gives out plenty of air. The best feature is the timer selections in half hour increments, up to four and a half hours with auto-shutoff so you can't forget to turn it off at the end of the day.
