The Holmes Blizzard Fan is the fan for you if you like a little background noise while you\u2019re sleeping or working. And while we wish it was made of metal instead of plastic, it does what it\u2019s supposed to do with ease. Consider it a best desk fan, best air circulator fan, or if you\u2019re in college looking for something to cool down your room, one of the best fans for college dorms.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Holmes Blizzard Fan\r\nThe Holmes Blizzard Fan contains the standard two speed settings for fans of its size and category. It\u2019s adjustable tilt-fan head gives you the freedom to direct air flow for optimal comfort, and the motorized oscillation lets it cool down a room far more quickly and effectively.\r\n\r\nPerformance\/Power\r\nThe Holmes Blizzard Fan contains two speed settings, high and low, so you can select your optimal air flow for your comfort. Although two speed settings is fairly common when it comes to desk fans, we have seen fans with more options. Check out the Vornado Pivot for a three speed settings type fan.\r\nDurability\/Build\r\nThe Holmes Blizzard Power Fan comes with a removable front grill so you can clean the rotating grill with relative ease if need be. The Holmes Blizzard Fan weighs a measly 3 pounds, so it\u2019s easy to bring from room to room, but we do wish the material was made out of something more sturdy, and more reliable, than plastic.\r\nNoise\/Sound Level\r\nIf you find a little background noise while sleeping or working comforting, then the Holmes Blizzard Fan is for you. The fan is louder than most fans in it\u2019s category, with some estimates placing the noise level at an astounding 70dB, but we\u2019ll leave it up to you, the customer, to decide whether this is a feature you do or don\u2019t enjoy.\r\nVersatility\/Modern Features\r\nThe Holmes Blizzard Fan\u2019s Blizzard Power contains an Advanced Blade System with an adjustable tilt-fan head. This lets you achieve optimal airflow wherever you want it. Unfortunately, there\u2019s no degree rating of how much the fan can tilt. If you want a fan with an impressive tilt that truly gives you air flow freedom, check out the Fancii USB Fan.\r\nValue\r\nWhile the Holmes Blizzard Fan may not contain a remote control, the motorized oscillation cools larger areas faster and more efficiently. So while it may not be as tech-savvy as the Dyson Air Multiplier, for example, the Holmes Blizzard fan does what a fan is supposed to do: cool a room. And it does it without all the fancy extra gadgets.\r\nHolmes Blizzard Fan Wrap Up\r\nThe Holmes Blizzard Fan has succeeded in becoming the choice fan for desks because it\u2019s not loaded with high-tech accessories. Turn it on and let it cool. And with that, you\u2019ve learned how to use it and use it effectively. There are some questionable design choices, to be sure, but it\u2019s an otherwise great fan for any application.
