Almost bought a Wally-wart (sorry, Walmart) Holmes fan in green. I say almost because the box was open, and guess what? There was no fan! (Not to mention there were few other alternatives on the shelf). So I reported it and left.
Today I'm using my desk-clip fan. I like this fan a little as it can tilt back a full 90* degrees. And my dorm is so small, it circulates the air without a disturbing breeze. Great when the A/C is on, even better when I turn up the thermostat to kick in the heater at night.
The clip on my clip fan broke. It basically started to weaken at certain spots around the base and then one day I come back from classes and the fan was on the floor with the clip in three pieces. Not sure what to replace it with yet…thinking about a box fan (P25 Lakewood maybe?) but it won't be for awhile. At least not until next school year.
