The Midwest is getting warmer and to suck in some beautiful Spring air we added a few box fans to our windows. They get the job done, but don't look the greatest so we've been on the lookout for a better alternative. We couldn't help but be won over by the stylish good looks of this Otto Fan, but the $200 price tag is holding us back. After all, our 3 box fans only ran us 30 bucks. Leave us your thoughts on style vs. comfort after the jump!

If we lived outside the Midwest or somewhere that temperatures combined with wretched humidity didn't push the thermometer through the roof, the $200 price tag on Otto might be justifiable. We know that as soon as the end of May and beginning of June arrive, chances are our Air Conditioners will have kicked on. Sure we'd use it again in the fall, but we can think of several different ways to put $200 bucks to use while we keep on using the less than attractive box fans. Maybe we'll just have to keep searching.

Do you look for style when fan hunting or just resort to the basics? Leave us a comment below!
