Hi Everyone

Looking for a good fan and one of those mist fans caught my eye.
Is it worth buying a mist fan?
Does it cool slightly better then normal fans?

Nope, waste of money. Unless you're sitting like 1m from it :)

Not worth it unless the air is really dry. Basically - don't buy it if you think it is going to make the wind cooler (just put an ice bucket in front of the fan). The mist is a humidifier.

Thanks for your advice. Thought the mist really does something different lol

Apparently the blades are also susceptible to breaking.
