It's compact and durable. I'd say it's relatively quiet on the lowest setting compared to a Vornado. My one gripe is it's very hard to clean any dust collected over time. You'd have to unscrew or unhitch the face. I suppose it's true for all fans (I have a Vornado), but this one seems harder to clean. Overall, I like it and feel it's as effective in cooling a room as the more expensive Vornado.
Second purchase of this fan. Best one I have ever had, and the original [4+ yrs old] is working just fine. Moves allot of air. Forget the blizzards, vornado's and the towers, this is the one to buy. Durable, many settings, a remote, and best of all fairly quiet. I heart this fan big time Oh, and a steal at this price. LOVE Holmes.
