I've had this fan for over 3 years, and the fact that it has kept going perfectly for all that time is impressive in itself. The fan has three speeds. The fan is more than powerful enough, especially considering its diminuitive size.
Some people may not like the fact that the fan is not upright, as in it is not tall. For me, its small size is great because it takes up very little space. I can just put it on my desk and turn it on.
The fan cannot turn from side to side. It was not meant for use by a large number of people; it is just something with which you can easily cool yourself. However, the fan is capable of being adjusted up and down, making it easier to point the fan in the right direction.
My main gripe about the fan is that it is excessively noisy. Larger fans that I have had have been completely quiet, but this one really raises the decibels. I've gotten used to it, and it is no longer a problem.
For its price, the fan is an excellent buy.
