I purchased two units and can honestly say it was a waste of my money even though it wasn't that expensive. One would have to be home or near a water faucet in order to keep the machine filled to get cool air. It says the tub last for 8 hours, but that's not so! I originally had a Vornado unit which you simply plug in and it keeps you really, really cool. It is a bit louder than the Arctic Air, but you don't have to keep filling it so I will go back to using the Vornado instead. If one went to the beach or outdoors, I hope you take plenty of water with you plus it does not cover a wide area. Very inconvenient! I think I will be donating the two units.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
