This fan works as a fan of this style is expected to. The remote of course is a great feature to have in any fan. I mean who wants to keep getting up to change the speed or turn it off & on? The one feature it does not have is the oscillation on or off choice but that's a small thing. To me any way. The motor is not the quietest I've heard before but it's solid in noise limit. Far from annoying & loud. The wind factor is strong & sufficient. Cool & relaxing. Now the drawback is the weight of this thing. I've had other fans similar & they've never been this heavy. I can't say if it's a good or bad thing as far as stability or functionality. Don't know if it'll make it last longer or something. I just don't know. I feel like it doesn't need to be so heavy in order to work as expected or to be a good product. They were this heavy back in the day but since then, we've come out with lighter weight fans that serve the same purpose. Any who, it does ok & I do recommend it.
