Intentionally included a wide range of fan styles, from freestanding tower and pedestal models to portable tabletop options and case airflow fans. The GreenTech PureFlow is particularly unusual in appearance, as it employs a bladeless design to eliminate the risk of injury that is inherently present with bladed fans as well as minimize the accumulation of dust. Users who value clip-on functionality will want to consider the Genesis Convertible, which includes a sturdy clamp on the base that can be used to adhere it tightly to desks, poles, chairs or other surfaces. It can also be configured for use as a standard tabletop model. Noted that the Pelonis Pedestal has an adjustable height, which is a useful feature few models offer. Looked into including the Honeywell HS-1655, but discovered several user reports that it breaks down after only a few months of use.
