I bought this fan to help move around central air-conditioning air in our bedroom and hallway. We've been running it on low which works well because of the large fan size (16 inches) and is so quiet it is difficult to tell if it's on. Obviously, at higher settings there will be more sound, but at the low setting it's remarkable. The fan has some very nice features. Different shades of blue soft lighting on the control panel indicates fan speed, there's a remote to control speed and power, and, my favorite, the fan comes apart easily for cleaning . By that, I mean both the front and back of the fan screen easily come off the motor, the fan blade itself completely separates from the shaft with just a plastic screw-on cap (reverse thread) and can be dusted or washed as needed.
Some minor complaints: The fan can be raised and lowered on its support shaft by lifting the upper part and and locking it in place by rotating the upper shaft about a half turn to the right. Unfortunately, if you want to move the fan head to the left, you can easily unlock that setting and the fan will sink down the shaft. This is just a short distance from full height (42 inches) to its lowest height (32 inches) and it slides down slowly. By just lifting the fan to rotate it, this problem can be solved. One other point: the fan cage can have a slight rattle when its operating. I put a small clip on the top and bottom edge of the fan cage which stopped the vibration completely. Overall a great fan.
