Even though I have central air, my home office gets stuffy...this little fan helps move some air as long as it is pointed straight at me and isn't very far away. Living in Texas, the "inventors" story about creating for his daughter's dorm room that had no A/C just doesn't make sense...it's Texas - EVERYthing has A/C. Also, if it was in the high 90's in the room there is no way this unit would have cooled the room down as described.
There are a couple of major problems...it comes with NO instructions. At first I put water in the receptacle on top and turned it on - air blows but not very cool...EVERY time you so much as touch the vanes in front, they fall out of their holders. In the process of trying to get vanes back where they belong, I discovered the filters inside that were to be soaked before use...after soaking them, getting them back inside the unit was very challenging...again, the front vanes were falling out all over the place!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
