The fan gives a bright clear message, unlike the vague one you see in the photo posted.
First of all I had some problems with putting in the batteries. If I only removed the regular lid of the battery case I could not properly insert the batteries since I would bend the little springs on the - end. And as many have said before me the program button doesn't work properly. I haven't been able to program even one successful message, because halfway through, or earlier, the button switches to the function of the top one and won't switch back.
I've read that putting in fully charged batteries might solve the problem of the program button. I have yet to try that, since the batteries I put in were rechargable batteries which had been laying around for a while already.
You get what you paid for: a cheap product with a crappy and malfunctioning interface. But if you actually manage to get the message in you get a good quality result.
