Well worth the money
1. Quieter than other fans the same size while having greater air flow. 2. Base, pedestal and front grill are metal making fan more solid/sturdy. 3. Efficient design of base is smaller than the massive plastic "disc" bases other fans the same size use. 4. Easy to assemble. 5. The extension pole can be removed and the fan post can be mounted directly on the base making it a low level, low profile fan.
