My first impression of this Ozeri Tower Fan was "Wow this is one good looking fan!" I removed it from the box and looked at the instructions. It was assembled in 30 seconds. I noticed right away that the base is very sturdy and the fan slits won't allow little fingers to go inside. The touch buttons are nice and easy to figure out. So many settings for every need you may have day or night. It is very quiet, especially on the first setting. You can barely hear it, even next to our entertainment center, I did not have to turn up the volume on the television at all. I can only describe the fan as a breeze and not at a fan blowing in your face. I love how it fits nicely tucked in a corner and oscillates all the way without hitting anything. The remote control is nice and easy, fits in a tucked away compartment in the top of the back of the fan. My family of 5 all wanted the fan for their bedrooms! We compromised and kept it in the living room where it really looks like it fits right in! I can't tell you in words how amazing this fan is! I will never buy an ugly box fan again!
