Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarimoMama LIfe Saver from the heat!
This fan has been a total life saver for us from the blazing heat in Southern California! I read the reviews before purchasing and took a chance. We use this in our bedroom. It's a large master, about 16 x 12 with a vaulted ceiling approximately 8 ft on one side and 12-14 feet on the other. We had a portable ac unit but it never cooled the room like we wanted, mostly blew warm air around and eventually broke.
Our bedroom is also located on the 2nd floor so all the heat rises up and it was impossible to cool even though it was cold outside in the evenings. With this fan we can shut the door and blow cool air into the room. The exchange of in/out air is an awesome feature since we live next to a busy street/frwy and exhaust comes in from time to time. We can just reverse the fans to get the bad air out. PLUS it has the dial for temperature control, so if you're going to sleep you can set it just above where it would turn off. This way when it get's colder at night, it will shut off automatically.
When it gets to be 90-100 degrees, we add an additional fan in the room to help with the heat issue.
The unit is pretty easy to maneuver in and out the window and store away. Our window is vertical so we will probably eventually add something to block the top space that's open when in use (see photo).
**2 things I wish it had: 1) A filter of some sort to purify the air that comes in. 2) Louver type slats that can be moved to adjust which way the air flows in.
In closing, the unit isn't a miracle worker. If it's hotter than heck outside, there's only so much cooling it can do. It may not work for everyone but for us it's been a dream and we've had it since October 2015. We've run it all night/day during the hot months and it's still holding up perfectly! Worth every penny for us.

It's very easy to set up. Very versatil. I use it in a Food truck, where I need to remove it to drive, and re-install it once stationary, and even then it's very practical. Works great. I have use for it, both, bringing air in, and also extracting the air out, depending whether it is just parked, or being occupied. I've had these units before in an apartment window, and it also worked great there, removing stale air out of the bedroom. By using two units in opposing areas of the dwelling (one out, and one in) you'll be able to have a steady movement of air current throughout the whole area in between. I just love those units.

Very sturdy construction, but light weight. Thin enough that I could leave the screen in place, so no bugs. Incredibly quiet and unobtrusive.
I'm using it as a vent fan for a bathroom, so the small size is a plus. It even fits behind the plantation shutters! I love the 'exchange' setting which draws air in with one fan and blows it out with the other.
Installation took 3 minutes max.
You won't go wrong with this fan.

Needed a window unit to pull air out of my garage. This fit easily in the window, we had it operating in no time. It has been in the "on" position since installed two months ago with no issues. It seems to be quiet, although with it being in the garage there is limited interaction with it's noise level.
Overall, it is performing as desired.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by michael BAD DESIGN, FIT LIKE A LOOSE SOCK
we have new-er windows, they have a 2 inch open slot at the bottom of the window, and a little bigger on the casing below, which our AC unit fits in snuggly and sturdily. The top half of this fan is FLAT and as thick as the rest of the unit. so the 2 slide fillers for each side gap didnt have a spot to rest in. so they basically could flap side and side. The bottom of the unit was also too wide to fit in bottom slot of window casing, so whole unit was sitting with visible space all around unit. if used it could easily be pushed threw from burglar, kids, and be easy entry for bugs, spiders and mosquitoes. other reviews also said that the unit would fit easily without moving the screen, but it was not even close.

2 large fans which are quiet and move a lot of air. 3 power settings with reverse, and am adjustable fan power setting which doesnt seem to do anything. Looks nice, we have one in the kitchen thats been there for years with no issues.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jkohl84 Functional for what we needed, but not as powerful as we want
We like this fan as we were in need of a fan that would fit our smaller sized windows. Unfortunately it just doesn't have the amount of airflow we were hoping for. However, it is a solid product & well made. I would recommend this item if you are in need of a fan for a smaller sized window, but again just not enough air movement.
