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.
