I had low expectations, but this fan rocks for the price. If you are looking for a good fan at a low budget, this is your fan

Moves a surprising amount of air for it's size. I can't say much about the battery life, as it hasn't been an issue yet.

What more can you ask for? This fan works great and is a great price! I was a little skeptical because I saw a few bad reviews but, turns out it's just fine.

This little fan is great. Didn't expect much for the price but was pleasantly surprised by how much air it circulates just on low. I'm very happy with my purchase.

This little fan is great. I have it plugged into the USB of my computer monitor to give me a cool breeze in the hot office. Everyone at work is now buying them.

Cheap and solid

Great little cheap fan.

Works well. As others have said, the front plastic assembly can come off but is easily secured (I do IT work and have lots of little black cable ties so that's what I used- it really won't be a problem unless you have big clumsy dogs like I do... ha). Moves a lot of air and is fairly quiet. I'm happy with it.

Surprisingly great for how cheap it is.

This fan was really easy to assemble and the noise level is definitely to my liking. The air flow from it is amazing considering it is all plastic. I would recommend this to anyone that is on a budget but needs a fan.

Good but cheap price

Works great!

cheap and perfect

…I got the black one...it's nice and cheap!

Cheap, effective and sleek looking.

Using outside on back porch and it makes the difference.

Cheap material but gets the job done

- The fan is easy to assemble, no screws needed or anything - Fan size is on the regular side ideal for bedroom use. But if you have a big living room, this is not the ideal fan for you. - Fan is made from lightweight plastic material - Works as expected, no complaints.

It is better than the cheap

…It is better than the cheap, small handheld fans or the portable ones that plug into the smartphone.

How sturdy is it? I want a cheap mouse that I can smash when I get mad, is this the right choice?

Too sturdy for smashing.

Does it charge when plugged in and running? Can you buy extra batteries?

I have not tried to charge it while running, so I don't know. you can buy extra batteries, but make sure you get the right ones. Because the batteries are not cheap, it is cheaper to buy another fan (keep as a back up) because it comes with one battery. (I bought 2 extra batteries and they cost more than the new fan.)

I love this tiny fan

Cheap and strong

Everyone needs a fan, this one was a fast assembly and works powerfully. Lets see how long it lasts

good quality with cheap price

I think I got this a month ago and it works fine. easy to assemble. If you are looking for a simple fan, this will work for you. don't expect too much.

is the blade housing plastic or wire

The entire fan is made of plastic, but we have 2 and love them. They are not cheap stuff, but well made. Hope this helps.

Cheap and works great

Very quiet and efficient

Cheap but decent fan

Decent for price.

Does the job for cheap.

I needed an oscillating fan to spread the heat from a ventless gas heater we bought. The heater runs off our gas well and is used to supplement company natural gas heating. I am sure this will come in handy in Summer, too. I gave it 4 stars (not 5) only because it is mostly plastic but, hey, that's what the price reflects and what was expected. I could not find one reasonably priced anywhere in Erie, PA so Thanks Amazon!

Good cheap fan

Yup this one is, made of flimsy plastic, noisy, easy to assemble...and probably wont last more than a couple of summers. But its a great price too keep you cool!

cheap and decent

works well, not terribly noisy, the guard is all plastic which means you to take it out and just hose it or clean it easily

It’s not a flimsy cheap fan. I love it!

This is EXACTLY what I needed. The 3 speeds are perfect! My desk area at work gets so hot to the point where I begin to sweat and this fan cools me off perfectly! Buy it!

Strong and quite

This fan is amazing. i have normally bought those little cheap metal fans that work for a while but start shaking really bad causing a lot of noise. figured i would try this fan and I was not disappointed.…

Awesome

Fantastic strong fan it feels cheap, but the air is strong.

A must have for nurses

…It was cheap so I’m concerned about it breaking but so far it has been a lifesaver.

Handy and cheap.

This little fan is great. I have it plugged into the USB of my computer monitor to give me a cool breeze in the hot office. Everyone at work is now buying them.

GREAT CHEAP FAN!!!

This is great if you have a computer with vents on the top. The airspeed that this USB fan produces is great! I will definitely buy this product again!

Cheap, cool and effective.

It was a nice little cheap gift for someone who is constantly facing heat, and she loves it.…

Will it last with constant daily usage? I've bought similar USB fans that only costed a few bucks but only lasted a few weeks. Does yours still work?

I purchased two of these and running them for my cryptocoin mining rig for 24/7 nonstop for over a year and they are running without any issues. Probably the best fan out there. This fan is quiet and sturdy. I had other usb fan but threw it away after few days because it was really bad. And other cheap usb fans use ridiculous amount of power. This one is not. I highly recommend this one.

I will keep this short.

So I thought I was going to get some cheap USB fan and I was OK with that. But it is really built sturdy and does not feel cheap at all. it helps cool down my second laptop by at least 50% it seems like.

Not a bad cheap fan

I bought this fan to sit on top of an Anker USB hub to cool my dual external RAID hard drives that sit in a Star Tech base. The bare drives plug into the Star Tech base like slices of toast, and they are only cooled by ambient air as the unit has no fan. With the little USB fan, I get plenty of air moving over the drives to keep them very cool. The fan is not very noisy, you can't possibly hurt yourself on the little plastic blades (although it did give the cat a fit once or twice). You can easily stop the fan with your fingers.…

Keeping me cool at my desk!

…I was just looking for a small cheap fan to keep on my desk and keep me cool and this little thing does exactly that.

Powerful but quiet and cheap

…It's never that loud so it's great in office and more than enough power to cool me off when they are being cheap about AC

Amazon's Okayest fan for $20 or less.

For 3 or 4 sawbucks this is probably one of the most acceptable pieces of cheap consumer frivolity you can treat yourself to. I've gone through 3 other iterations of cheap desktop fans so I thought I'd share my opinion on this.… Form: The design is on point, it's an interesting Modern, non fan shape which is good because if it was fan shaped you would be judging it by the cheap build materials its made out of instead of it being almost desktop piece.…

Not too bad

…Priced fairly cheap.…

Cheap fan, works, but you get what you pay for

Headline says it all. Everything works as expected, but it definitely makes a little bit of noise. Nothing that's disruptive, but *I* can't fall asleep with it on

Excellent Desk Fan - Quiet & Powerful Enough

…The screw adjustment is cheap-ish and the workaround is to simply bend the aluminum fitting

Cheap

Good fan, but it broke in less than a year. The front blades stopped spinning. You get what you pay for, so I’ll probably get something better next time.
