      Disadvantages

      A good cheap fan for cooling a small room

      I initially bought this thinking it would make a suitable desk fan for use in my stuffy office. Wrong!!, this is no way suitable for sitting on your desk within close proximity of you.

      The fan is small enough to sit on a desk and has the appropriate fixing holes so it can also be wall mounted. The base of the fan is approximately 11 inches wide, with the fan approximately 8.5 inches in diameter. The unit is approximately 6.5 inches deep, though this increases as the fan is titled from it's upright position.

      The fan has three speed settings. The button is behind the top of the fan, which makes it difficult as you need to reach over the fan when turning on or off and altering the speed. You tend to do this by feel alone otherwise you need to stand over the fan to see the button. A more suitable place for the button would have been on the actual base of the fan.

      The button seems to operate back to front for me, from the off position, twist once and you are straight into warp factor the highest speed. Twist a second time for the second speed and a third time for the slowest speed. Even the slowest speed gives out quiet a blast of air.

      It is a nice sleak design and the fan can be tilted manually and set at a fixed point. This is not an oscillating fan, once the fan is titled into poistion it will stay there. The most practical use for this fan I believe is a fan sat on a cupboard at distance to cool a small room. It is too powerful for use as a desk fan and I believe it is not practical as a wall mounted fan due to the position of the on off / speed alteration button.

      If wall mounting and you use the mains electricity socket to control it being on / off and don't need to alter the speed often, then it would make an ideal wall mounted fan say is a small shop etc.

      The fan is powerful but very noisey compared to other similar sized fans I have used. Overall a good and cheap fan (I paid about £10) for cooling a small room, but not suitable for desk use. Too noisey for use during the night if using in a bedroom.
