Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JCGInMS Nice looking, but just a fan
I purchased this to use outside within a screen room. The only advantage to this fan is its appearance and weight for outdoor use. It weighs around 40 pounds and appears to be well built. It looked nice in the space. However, it only blows from the upper half of the black area that is louvered, a real disappointment. I wanted air to be able to blow from seated knee to face level, and it does not unless one gets a fair distance away. The air coming from the narrow area has to flow quickly through such a narrow space, and thus makes more noise than a comparable round fan. The width of the oscillation was also quite narrow, more so than a round fan. For $300 with shipping I wanted the fan to be quiet, attractive, and more effective than other options. Even in my 15" screen room, a single fan was not going to keep my family cool, though two of them oscillating might have done it. I elected to return it, and bought two $30, round, Lasko fans that work better for my situation. They move air more quietly, the width of the stream of air is wider and taller, the oscillation angle is greater, and if they break, it won't break the bank.

This fan was exactly as pictured, and performed admirably . It pushes a lost of air as it oscillates. I like it for it's streamlined design - it takes up little space on a crowded deck.

The price for this outdoor fan was the best I could find. The remote control works great and it was easy to assemble

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LAH Wonderful patio fan
We love this fan. Very quiet (only wind noise) and very good quality. The only complaint I have is that the fan oscillates but since the sides are solid, the breeze is only to the front. We would find it more useful if the top sides had vents, similar to the front. Great product otherwise.

This fan is a wonderful addition to our patio. It is reasonably quiet (air noise mostly, not mechanical) and provides a good amount of circulation. The only drawback I see so far is that the only air opening is to the front. The fan oscillates nicely, but the sides of the housing are solid so it blocks any side flow.

A little loud. Everything works as advertised. Haven't had any hot weather yet so don't know how well it will work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ila Excellent fan
I had the same fan but without the remote and it worked great for a couple years. But I really missed not having a remote so I got this one. It is really a beautiful fan and looks very elegant on my patio. It wa a bit of a challenge to get out of the box .... for one not-very-strong person ... but I eventually was able to accomplish it. It is quite a heavy fan, which is good as there is no worry about it being blown over.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 2823 The product is elegant and fits well, but noisy.
The fan as you stated in your advertisement was elegant, it fit very well on our outside porch and blended with the light fixtures. We found the motor so noisy that it interfered with conversation and we returned it to the Home Depot here in Des Moines, Iowa. I would again purchase it if they could turn down the volume of the motor on the fan. I have looked at indoor fans and they are very quiet. Why can't the outdoor one be as quiet?
