I bought this fan because I like the style of tower fans, it comes with a remote control, and it was reasonably priced. I have multiple sclerosis and suffer from extreme heat intolerance, so fan-shopping is something I do quite often. I have nine fans in my condo and this one is the best one by far! It's a pretty powerful fan, and the three settings make it useful for whatever the temperature. It doesn't take up much space and has a nice sleek look to it. I absolutely LOVE the handle in back... it makes it SO easy to bring it with me from room to room! Probably the best thing about it is that it's incredibly silent! If it wasn't for the blowing air, I wouldn't even know that it's on! I wish my other eight fans were this quiet! I would definitely recommend this fan. It cost a little more than I would have liked to spend (because I'm cheap), but it has proved to be very worth the expense.
