The answer is no , for almost any product listed in the online stores you will always find one star rating  .So my point is don’t relay too much on the negative reviews  if you want to odder something online .instead if you like it look for positive review if they are more people who are happy about it then feel free to try it and retain it back if it did not meet your expectations .

Most of the physical product like window fans they have more than 1 year warrant so on that period of time you  should know whether  the fan you bought  it does the job or not .
