PROS: Very powerful on dual intake mode with the large dual six blade fans. Cools my 14 x 14 foot room very well to outside temperature. I live in the desert so the thermostat comes in handy as we have wide swings in temperature in Phoenix. The controls are analog so you don't have to worry about digital control circuits going bad so its worth the couple extra bucks. The design of the unit is very sturdy. Helps saves on electricity costs. Reduces wear on your expensive air conditioner. Also it the fans are fairly quiet for the amount of air they move. CONS: The only down side and this applies to all of these bidirectional fans is the fan blades are fixed in one position. This means when you put the fan into exhaust mode the airflow isn't as strong because of the fixed position of the blades. I use it in a sliding window that is taller than the fan so the gap will allow the air to exhaust as the dual fans intake fresh air into the room. I am not paid to say this stuff. I just really am impressed with this unit compared to what else is available on the market.
This is just a cheap fan. I bought this fan about 4 years a go and I LOVED IT - it was smooth and quiet and gave me several years of extensive use, running it all night long. But finally it became a little loose and started making little noises I didn't like - I kept tightening the cover grills, but after a while the screws became loose and I couod hear the grilled jiggling a little. But when I wanted to replace it I wanted the same fan since I was so pleased for a solid three years at least, and had only paid $16.00, what a bargain! BUT I don't like the new one - I don't like the blades being connected in the middle, and the fan makes slight noises, it's not as smooth as my old one was. The motor seems too powerful now. So I'm in the market for a new fan and don't know where to look. I went with Holmes in the first place because my sister and her husband have nice, good quality Holmes fans that are superb, very smooth and quiet.
This fan is very lightweight, simple to assemble and easy to use. Although it may feel "cheap", it is well designed and simple to use. It can be easily moved to different locations throughout the house. Kudos for marketing this fan at a price most people can afford...
I bought two of these fans about 8 years ago and have used them every summer. Not only are they the best fans of their size on the market, they have a remote, timer and oscillating fan it mimics a natural breeze. I have never had a visitor over who did not ask me where I got these fans and how wonderful they feel. I would recommend them to everyone> And I do
