Got fed up with the old fan croaking away each time it's turned on. So, went and bought this Alpha brand five-blade fan with led emergency light. Now, the kids wont scream whenever the power supply gets cut off during a thunderstorm. The led emergency light provides just enough brightness to let me work at the pc when the kids are sleeping too. This is something that i've been looking for for a long long time. Am very happy with my purchase. Will save me a lot off my electricity bill in the long run too.
