We love how the larger fan blades produce a more focused and stronger stream of air. Minimal energy usage even at high settings.
Base on a table doesn’t provide the same amount of stability as larger mounting options.
Stands out for its USB plug, which allows the fan to be powered straight from the computer. Cord offers plenty of length to position the fan wherever you want.
Small blades produce a very narrow channel of flowing air.
Full articulation and oscillation without the extra space loss. Great deal of automation such as an automatic timer shutoff. Narrow profile with vertical height covers more of the body when sitting on a desk.
Product is top heavy. Caution is required to prevent tipping over.
Good for personal cooling on a tight budget. Grippy, large base adds extra security to the fan. Dual speeds for warm to hot days. Small enough to fit on other surfaces.
Plastic blades are easily damaged if objects get through the protective cage.
We purchase every product we review with our own funds — we never accept anything from product manufacturers.
To be efficient, your workspace needs to be free of distractions. Especially environmental ones. If the air is warm and stagnant, it can make it hard to concentrate when you are at your desk for extended periods of time. A desk fan solves that problem. Finding the best one is a matter of determining which features you need the most. You'll want one that fits on your desk and has a number of speed options for comfort. A quiet fan won't add stress to your workspace. If it can be tilted and oscillates, you'll find the versatility gratifying. A grippy base will help keep your desk fan in place. And, depending on your preference, it can be powered by an outlet, batteries, or even your computer.
