On July 15TH I return the Oscillating Pedestal Standing Fan (Kmart Item# 006W004474717000 | Model# CZST161BTEKM), and got this one. I paid the difference. The fan (Bahamas Breeze) is very quiet and powerful; on the lower speed, you can feel the breeze 15 to 20ft away. Best of all you do not have to touch the fan to turn it on and off, you control it with the infrared remote. Only drawback the remote does not come with the two AAA batteries. Great buy for the price.
Total of 16 pieces, Directions are not clear. After 1 hour of putting this awful thing together the medium speed does not even work. The only part of the directions that are clear state : AAA batteries included. Not true, no batteries at all. Will be returning in am. ALSO ... Not sturdy at all.
I bought this item because of the good reviews, but within a couple of months started having problems with the base - wobbly, bends easily. Mind you, the fan was rarely moved from its location. Eventually the base broke and when I called K-Mart for replacement parts was told to google the manufacturer, no help provided.
I bought this fan June 16, 2012 and the motor went out on it yesterday, It sat in the same spot in my bedroom and I cleaned it regularly so one would think it would last longer then that :(
