Compact mini fan but with a good breeze. I have used everday, with no problem. A little noisy but can't grumble for price. Had a previous mini fan of a different make which broke after a few months. This one seems better made and less likely to break as not so flimsy. Recommended for reliability and powerful for a mini fan. You are not going to get a fan for life at this price. But I think a good buy for a low price.
