Exactly What I Needed
I received the second picture version as well - not the knob. The switch is a Leviton 3 position, single pole, 15A, white decora switch. It has the high, low, and off position printed on the surface. I am using this switch with my Air Vent Inc. 24' Whole House Fan 54301 Attic & Whole House Fan (which requires removing the prewired switch).
The same switch without the wording was $60 from my local electrical supply and not available at Home Depot or Lowe's. I know some reviews were unhappy because they expected a dial switch but this is what I wanted!

Just What I was Looking For
First off, the description for the product was wrong. It is described as a rotary switch, but shows the picture of a 2-speed rocker switch. Then, when I proceeded to checkout, the picture shows a 2 speed rotary switch. I did NOT receive a rotary switch, but a rocker Hi/Low switch, which is what I intended to order. Amazon really needs to clean up the details to avoid buyer confusion so customers can save time and frustration and order what they need.
I ordered this switch to install with a 2-speed whole house fan. It came with a small standard switch, and I wanted a larger decora type switch instead. I connected it along with a Leviton LTB02-1LZ DECORA 1800W Incandescent/20A Resistive-Inductive 1HP Preset 15-30-60-120 Minute Countdown Timer Switch, with the load output of the timer switch connecting to the Load screw on the 2-way switch where the hot (black) wire would normally go. It appears to be well made and works well so far.
The only complaints I have are:
1) There were no instructions that came with the unit. This wasn't a big deal, except I didn't know which screw was for "high" and which was for "low". There is an A1 connection on the top, and a B1 connection on the bottom. Now, I assumed the A1 would be for "high" since the it was next to the "high" button. This was wrong, and I had to reverse the wires. Not a big deal, but some instructions would've been nice and would've save me some time.
2) The terminal screws are threaded into a flat piece of metal that holds the screw in place, while allowing the head of the screw to move away from the switch enough to fit your wire. Well, I didn't realize that if I unscrewed it too much, that piece of metal would fall back inside the device and be a pain to line up again. I probably should've realized the configuration before unscrewing it all the way, but as a force of habit I did it without thinking. Again, not a big deal, but another time waster as I struggled to get the screw reattached.
Overall, I'm pleased with the product and would recommend it.

What can you say about a switch? It works and runs my two speed fan great!
I did manage to wire it up wrong the first go, with high being low and low being high, but I think that was the fan's wiring documentation and not the switch's.
Does have a nice quality feel to the switching action...
