Being a native Floridian, I'm used to always having a ceiling fan in every room . . . along with central A.C., as well. Have been living in a condo for some four years with no ceiling fans, which really make a big difference . . . not only in one's comfort, but keeping the electric bill lower. My neighbor has Lasko tower fans in every room. This was my first introduction/experience with the looks, quality and performance. She loves her. I did my research as to price as she purchased hers at a well-known discount store - everything from A-Z - Super Store, etc. The price on Overstock was even better than what she paid. Plus, no state sales tax and I didn't have to go to the store. Stated that it would be delivered within 5-7 days. S&H is only $2.95, which is fantastic and hard to beat. Only two days later, my Lasko fan arrived. Very little assembly - just have to attach base to fan with some 4-6 screws. Fan swivels, which is nice. I am thrilled with all the features, as to the wide area it covers; remote; settings; timer and more. Very, very quiet and I sleep very comfortably all nigth long.
We've had this fan for a few years, its gone through kicks, people tripping over it, and hitting it and it still is like new. Blows very well, with very high speeds. We have bent the neck and it still swivels and works perfectly. couldn't ask for a better one!
Bought for cooling a Playstation 3 gaming console. Stands sturdy on the shelf, tilting up or down nearly 360 degrees impeded only by the cable. Good long cable, 4' easily circles the console (USB on front-left, fan on right side). Base is approx 6"x4", fan about 5" across. Dead silent running, range 4-5'! A slight whir set close at hand. Puts out a good breeze. Shipped in a small box, lead warning advisory (California Prop 65; wash hands).
Nice fan but would like it to "swivel" up and down. I know I'm being picky but it's hard to get the height lined up to the right spot for me. Also, others have stated that it's loud but I personally wish it was louder to block out night time noise. Just a heads up if this a big deal to you.
