Want a wall fan w/ remote? This THE best of the bunch!
For some unknown reason, quality wall fans that include a remote control are very few and far between. Over the past 5 years, I've purchased online (from 2DayDeliver and elsewhere) several such fans branded as HomeBasix, AirKing, and another brand whose name I forget -these three brands seemed to be selling the identical fan under different labels so really there's only been ONE wall fan with remote that's readily available until I came across this Hurricane fan which is clearly a different fan altogether). I also recently bought two Lasko/Stanley 655650 High Velocity wall/floor fans. While these two move alot of air, they're not appropriate for an indoor living area as they're WAY too noisy and the lowest speed sent anything weighing less than half a pound flying off tables,desks, and counters!
Two weeks on 11-7-2015 and I have a second one, both purchased used from 2DayDeliver Marketplace. They're really excellent and I've upgraded my rating from 4 to 5 stars. This '5' star rating means that this is the best quality and best value remote-control wall fan available in the US market in the context of my having used a total of five brands in this category over the last five years. I really wouldn't bother purchasing the other brands available even if they're cheaper (tho' I've actually seen them sold at highers prices than this Hurricane wall fan is currently selling for) as this one is WAY better quality and better-designed. Having only had these two Hurricane fans switched on for two weeks (I tend to run my wall fans 24/7)that sell other brands), I can't speak to how long it will be until they die - only that, so far, they run the competition into the ground.
This Hurricane fan is, without a doubt, of superior quality and design compared to my previous purchases. It's also stylish. I agree with one critic that its fastest speed is not super-fast; however, it's very efficient i that it moves more air at a given fan speed than many fans do and it's also REALLY quiet - the quietest fan I've ever had. The remote works fine and I like the innovateve "figure-of-eight" oscillating pattern, though I intend to us it in a fixed position aimed at my desk chair.
All in all, I'm very happy with this purchase and I'd recommend it.

Nice for Air Circulation.
Good fan. We like the settings and attached it to the wall in my boys' bedroom upstairs where the air doesn't circulate that well. It has definitely made a difference in the summer, but if your room is very big, you would probably need a couple of these. Fan blades collect dust like any other fan and plug in cord isn't super long, so make sure you're attaching it close to where there's an outet.

Works fine but timer intervals are not as shown in photos
This fan had worked well so far. Installation was easy. I bought this specific model because I wanted a fan with a timer. The photos show time intervals starting at 30 minutes, but the unit I received starts at 6 hours and also has 12, 18, and 24 hour settings. This doesn't fit my needs at all but it wasn't worth the hassle of sending it back. It does, after all, blow air around the room.
Minor complaints: turning it off by the main controls requires you to cycle though several button presses. You can turn it off with one press of the remote, however. The remote has a wall mount screw hole on the back, but from my attempts you have to pull it away from the wall and point it at the IR receiver, so mounting the remote in a handy spot isn't very handy after all.

This is the best wall fans ever for the price
This is the best wall fans ever for the price. Has speed settings, up and down settings, side to side settings, timer, sleep mode, speed, and remote . At first open the box seems a bit overwhelming. You have to assemble it but everything can be down under 5 minutes. I had the unit assembled, and up and installed within 15 minutes. I bought 2 of these and they work great. Very happy with the purchase.

Good fan, but too loud for us
This was for my daughter's room and it didn't quite work out. Nice fan. It have variable speeds and a remote, which is great. It was quite loud for us, especially on the highest setting. Overall it does work and blows quite a distance.

Great value and performance.
Very good airflow, excellent remote function, quiet operation. We have four fans in an exercise room and it is very convenient that any remote can control all fans. Good range of speeds. A bit difficult to stop oscillation exactly where you might like to position unit for focusing on one area.

Love the fan
Love the fan. Easy to install. The figure 8 motion reallu works well in out fitness room.
The only bad part, for a wall mounted fan, the cord is short. Unless the place you want to mount it is directly above an outlet, you will need to buy an extension cord. That part is reallu annoying and thus my 4 start review, rest is a 5.

Very Powerful Fan... Even on low
This fan easy to install. Not much to put together. It is very powerful! Low is actually really strong. So if you are putting it in your bedroom like I did, you may want to sleep with it on low or medium. The high setting will be too much.

Great fan but to use the remote you have to be right in front of it and very close.

Good fan great support
Although the first fan I received did stop working properly after a week or so, the consumer support I received was the best. They replaced my broken fan. The new fan works great with no problems. I am going to guess that the one I received first just slipped by quality control.
