I bought this fan because I am usually fairly hot-natured and while we keep the air running in my office, I still tend to be too hot during the day. I liked the look of this fan. It had a nice sleek design and it was small and compact enough to sit on my desktop at work and not take up too much space. Also, it is only a few pounds so it isn't too heavy move around to a different spot if it's needed somewhere else.
This fan came fully assembled so all I had to do was take it out of the box, plug it in and it was ready to go. I knew that it had three speed options, but without reading the directions, I didn't know that to change the speed, you pushed the on/off button several times to change it. It also has an oscillating button that you push if you want the top portion of the fan to oscillate.
