What experts liked
One of the best things about this fan is its dual-oscillating feature. While most fans only rotate 90 degrees in one direction and back, you can stop the Holmes fan at any point in its oscillation cycle and reverse its direction with the push of a button on the remote or control panel. This saves you the hassle of having to manually reposition the fan if you want it to blow in a different direction.

The oscillation feature of this particular tower fan allows it to cover almost the entire room.Up to 8 hours can be preset on the automated timer, for the tower to respond automatically to switch on/off.

There are 2 breeze settings, natural and sleep. Natural is an attempt and creating a natural breeze you might feel outside. It cycles through the fan speeds settings randomly creating and ebb and flow of wind. The sleep breeze setting with cycle through the wind speed settings in order, so from high to medium to low.

Sadly many consumers found the base flimsy and not that well built causing the fan to move around and wobble on the higher settings.
