Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer Best for price and category
I always recommend paying just a bit extra cash for a 20-inch box fan. Not only does Lasko build the best ones in this category, but the Weather Shield pushes more air and has a stronger motor than units which cost a few bucks less. Makes for a great room fan, window fan, or even as the perfect 20-inch fan to build your own air purifier (which is exactly what I did with this fan model, four AC filters, thick poster boards for the bottom, and a bunch of masking tape.)
I am happy, and it was well worth the wait, since most places were sold out of this unit.
Keep in mind that the Weather Shield does run a bit louder than other 20-inch box fans, but it does not bother me. I just let it run at the lowest setting for my needs, and I quite enjoy the "white noise" as an extra bonus at night!

This fan is quiet and moves a lot of air. I have owned many box fans this on is the best!

This fan moves a lot more air than a standard box fan. Thermostat is a nice feature.

Does what it is supposed to. Replacing the same brand and model that we have had for about 18 years or so. That one fell and cracked but still works. Expect the same from this one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LDW Powerful - does what I *expect* a box fan to do
I was very impressed with this fan (which I chose due to so many glowing reviews). I have previously used cheap box fans from discount stores, which seem to barely stir the air. This fan is well worth the few extra $, due to its power. On high, I can feel the air flow at about 15-20' away. It's not silent, but the lowest setting is easy enough to ignore at bedtime. Works fantastically as an exhaust fan, as well.
I'd like to give it 5 stars, but the power/speed knob shorted out after 3 weeks, during which we mostly ran it constantly - turned the knob *maybe* a dozen times. I'll be exchanging it for another of these, tomorrow. (Since I've seen no other reviews mentioning the knob issue, I'm sure it's just a random defect.)
All-in-all, this fan makes a huge difference in an un-airconditioned apartment, whether pulling in cooler air at night or pulling out hot/stuffy air.
