After much research, we went with two of these fans to circulate the air from a window a/c unit into our bedroom and kitchen. The fan is very powerful and it moves air around as needed. We are very satisfied with the purchase and shipping from Best Buy was very fast for us even in Honolulu. The small negatives of the fan are (1) the air moving out of the tower unit actually makes some noise (not too bad though) (2) it has a stupid led nightlight around the power button that lights up a dark room (we have to cover it with a sock at night) (3) the oscillation is only about 30 degrees total (ideally, i was hoping for at least 45 degrees maybe even more). It doesn't have an ionizer which is a plus, because ionizers can actually pollute your home with ozone. I know, ironic right, sorta like diet soda causing weight gain. Anyways, we recommend it over the current alternatives if you want a tower fan that actually pushes air around your house/apartment.
