We have been buying fans like this one for quite a few years. As the air quality gets worse it really is harder to breathe. The price for the fan was really reasonable for all the 'goodies' that came with it. These days it is get harder to find a fan that oscillates, remote-controlled tower fan with ION, has a pretty quiet operation and three speeds among other things. I don't write these reviews often but I really felt that we took a chance with a brand we were unfamiliar with and really came out ahead.
I was excited about this fan because I was looking for a quiet one that was reasonably priced. This fan satisfied both of those criterion but what I didn't expect was the CHEAP quality of it. This fan ALMOST IMMEDIATELY started making strange noises. The fan blades would clatter occasionaly, the base would make strange noises when turning, it just wasn't worth it. I would return it but Overstock wants to charge me (***) to return it. I paid (***) and it doesn't make sense to spend half of the price on the return shipping.

This fan is just ok. It works well but I'm not happy with the oscillating feature as it makes a loud clicking sound as it starts the return motion with each change of direction. I don't know if I assembled the base improperly (seems to me it could have come already assembled to keep me from possibly doing it wrong), but the clicking noise is so annoying, I won't use that feature. It provides good air in my bedroom but it's definitely not as quiet as some reviewers have suggested (though perhaps my expectations are too high). The thing I like the most about it is the remote control and the auto turn-off timer feature.
