    DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

    When you set the fan to MAX for the temp its must mean highest temp. I dont get it. I figured it would just go at full speed at any temp, but it doesnt. When you go to lower temps the light flashes. Which is annoying when trying to fall asleep. It also doesn't fit the window. Has a about a half inch gap between the window and the sliders on the fan. Had to order online and thought it would work. Will be returning this $50 waste of money soon as my new one arrives.

    I have had no problems with this fan. Has a high/low speed function that works without issue. Others mentioned that the fan only works within certain temperature ranges, this is not true, it can work like a regular fan, or turn on and off based on the temperature of the environment. Only downside is that LED light flashes which is annoying at night, a piece of electrical tape over the light fixes it though!

    The fan was a perfect fit for my old basement windows. I like the fact that the fans will run in both directions, allowing for intake or exhaust. I did not need the thermostatic control the unit is equipped with, but I suppose there are some folks who do. I'm happy with the product so far, about two months of non-stop use.

    Great fan, it has lots of controls that allow the fan to be controlled fully. Like timer, temperature, high/low speed. My only dislike is that the outer frame is pretty thick so only one side can sit inside the window frame.

    The price was right but the product has some minor function problems- no way to re-direct the air passage. It's either straight in or out. The push button operation is touchy. Fits the window just fine

    Purchased to take the hot air out of our bedroom. It has both exhaust and fan that can work independently or both. Has been running nonstop for 3 weeks. Works perfectly. Highly recommended.

    Installation is simple. Provides sufficient airflow to keep rooms ventilated and cool, and very cost effective price. More economic than an air conditioner .

    I'm using this fan in a home based smoking lounge to exhaust the smoke out. Works good, quiet, efficient

    A little loud, but cools a small room well. Side fins could be a little longer to completely close out hot air
