Okay, I really gave this brand a fair chance. Over the past few years, I have broght 3 of their fans in 3 different sizes. First, I bought the medium one. I sleep with a fan on every night for 2 reasons...1) I get very hot when I sleep 2) I like "white noise" when I sleep. This fan lasted about a full year, running every night on high for about 10 hrs. Not bad I thought, so when the motor stopped spinning the fan, I figured I'd go get another. I bought the larger one this time...only lasted 3 months. It also cracked on the base. I bought a a different brand of fan for my room this time but bought the mini version of Honeywell for when I travel. After about 1 month, the motor started making a wierd clicking noise (almost like when you use to stick a playing card in your bicycle wheel to make it sound like a motorcycle lol). My husband tried messing with it, but got no where. Overall, I am not pleased with this brand. The quality is quite poor.
