This is a great little fan for anyone who sits at a computer all day and needs a little bit of extra cooling. It can be used in conjunction with AC or another method, or on it's own. It doesn't give off a crazy amount of cool air if the air is already being cooled, but when it's hot and you have no other cooling method, this definitely makes a difference! Power-wise, it's about as strong as those handheld mini-fans you can buy, but with the added benefit of being hands free!

If you find it's over-balancing a lot, push the little black anti-slip cushions forward to where the stand bends and it helps to steady it. I love that this is USB operated, so you don't have to waste batteries and of course, I love the pink colour I got! It's a good-looking fan and feels nice and sturdy, made of metal rather than plastic like some cheaper fans.

The only downside of this fan for me is that it is quite noisy. You're not going to notice it if you're running multiple fans, but when it's the only item running there's a really grating buzzing noise of the fan running. This won't bother people who aren't noise sensitive, but if you are, it might not be right for you.

It only has one speed, but I do appreciate the on/off switch as my computer tower is difficult to reach and it means I don't have to pull the USB out everytime I want to turn it off. You can also angle the fan completely up or down, which is a nice feature. Great for the office if you're the type of person who's always boiling while all your co-workers wrap themselves in blankets and refuse to up the heat.
