I've been using this Kool Operator fan for around four years now. It's a very good budget option to cool off your room or yourself with this mighty beast! Even on "low" setting, this fan's wind channel is as much as a medium to "high" setting on one of those regular standing fans. If you turn it to "medium" setting, the wind channel is definitely identical if not better than a "high" setting on a regular standing fan. It's very breezy. Most of the time a "medium" setting will do for most situations with this Kool Operator fan. But during summer, on the other hand, then you are advised to turn the knob to the "high" setting. Once you turn it to the "high" setting, be prepared to hold down any light-weighted things near the direction the fan blows, because it will lift up ANY light-weighted items, even items you might not think it can pick up! It's that "cool"! I highly recommend this fan if you want something to cool you off while you are tight on budget as this fan doesn't cost a lot to buy.
