    Inexpensive fan, works but is flimsy

    This fan works so far. It has three speeds, runs quietly and sort-of does the job. It is a cheap, no-frills fan, barely acceptable by any standards. What you'd normally expect to see on a box fan of this nature is a rotary switch on top, a collapsable handle, a cord near the bottom, and a steel brace inside for the motor. This type of design has worked for the past 25 years. What you get here is a plastic bladed fan, a cord that plugs directly into the back of the motor, a rotary switch on the back and recessed in the motor area, (you can't see what you're doing, you have to feel for the control) and no handle on top other than a hand grip that is built in to the back grill. It's about the most minimal fan I have ever used. The thickness of the materials is also thinner than most and it feels wobbly. The feet are simple plastic tabs that snap into the bottom of the frame. They are meant to keep the fan from falling backwards. I ordered this fan at the store over their internet feed since they were out. It cost less than $20, and I'm using this fan to exhaust hot air out of the garage when cars are brought inside. Had I seen this fan up close, out of its box and able to examine it, I might have tried to find something better. It's shocking what our choices are today for inexpensive hardware like this. It's yet another "use it today, and throw it away" product -- the reason that "made in China" has the same connotation that "made in Japan" had back in the 50s. It's perhaps worse.

    Surprised

    I have used Lasco box fans for wuite some time now to cool our chicken houses. They are the same size and similar price. I was surprised that the layout of this fan was different. Normally the speed control is on the top of the fan and the cord comes out near the bottom of the fan. For this fan, the speed control is in the center on the back (near the motor) and the cord comes out here, too. The cord is also detachable, using what looks to be a relatively standard oval shape (you may be able to replace it with the one you had on your old razor or cassette player). Thinking about the layout, it makes sense, because they use less internal wiring this way. The fan seems to be thinner than what I have used in the past, which means putting it away will take slightly less space. In the configuration for which I use it, the control on the back of the fan makes it easier to mount it in a window in the chicken coop, without the control getting in the way. If you are putting it in a normal window, you no longer have to worry about the window coming down onto the control since it is on the back, but you also will need to take it out of the window to shut it off (assuming you are blowing air in).

    Works fine for an economy box fan

    The good: (1) Blows large volume of air (2) Under $10 when on sale. The bad: (a) The switch and ac plug are located in the middle of the 'back' of the fan. So if you plan on placing this box fan in a window to blow air in, the switch will be towards the outside of the house (against the screen), along with the ac cord. If you can accept the inconvenience of the switch/cord location, fan works fine. I put mine on a 'Christmas Light' remote-controlled on-off switch, so though it allows me to turn fan on/off without removing fan from window, I still cannot change fan speed with removing it from the window to alter the switch. If you are using fan to blow air out of window, then switch/cord location would not be an issue. Overall, fan is not quiet, but it's not real loud either. Some have complained about significant vibration and shaking, but mine only exhibits minor to moderate shaking.

      Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback, it is greatly appreciated. We do not recommend using a box fan in your window. The motor is not rain resistant and not designed for this use. We do have great window fans available with front display controls and rain resistant motors. holmes

    The 20 inch blade diameter of this box fan provides cooling relief during the hot and muggy weather. The sturdy metal frame and multiple speed settings make this ideal for use in medium and large rooms. The integrated carry handle and cord wrap are available for added convenience. Three speed settings allow you to select your fan speed for optimal comfort and airflow. The compact, lightweight design allows you to save space. For added stability, the fan comes with attachable feet. This Made in the USA box fan features a highly efficient motor and blade combination that costs very little to run all day.

    Good Fan For the Price

    I need a fan for the house and saw this one on sale for $12.99 so I ordered it online. I was very disappointed when it arrived 2 days later. It looked like Ace Ventura drop kicked the box. Literally drop kicked! I opened it and sure enough the metal corner was smashed in. I took it back to bestbuy store near my house and luckily there was one left on the shelf. The fan comes with 3 speeds and it's a little loud. The two brackets at the bottom of the fan are not as sturdy and the fan WILL MOVE if you set it on a wooden floor and speed higher than 1. Overall, for that price, it's a ok fan..

    this fan is great, i bought it to replace an old fan that was dirty and was starting to show its age. At the price, it wasnt worth cleaning the old one so I just upgraded to a new one. My main complaint was the switch is on the back of the fan which is kind of a hassle since its a window fan so you got to pull it out each time to change speed or turn on or off. Old one had the switch on top which was much better!

    Nice box fan

    This fan puts out a nice breeze. I like the fact that the cord can be totally disconnected from the fan itself, and you can store the cord into the back of the fan itself. The switch that controls the speed of the fan isn't on the top of the fan like the old fashioned one, it is on the back of the fan. I like this fan it is totally different from the older fans I've purchased in the past, I wish I had purchased another one for the price and quality of this one. I would definitely recommend this fan to friends and others.

    Gentle fan, no speed demon but works

    Compared to a lot of other electric fans out there, the size of this fan may surprise some as not being a wind creating demon. In fact, I would kind of put it in the class as a "gentle air" mover considering there are fans much smaller that move more air. However, for the price, and the fact we wanted to move the air a bit, this fan met expectations. If you are looking for a good powerful fan, this is not it. Consider it "medium to low" on the scale for air circulation by size of blades.
