Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Francis Overall very quality fan but installion and assemply is unusual
Value - average - good quality fan but is with worth $700 - if it lasts it could be. Lost 2 Hampton bay products in same spot and did not want another disappointment/replacement. I install my own. Installation was unusual meaning assembly and installation had unique steps. Assembly - fan blade installation was way too tuff. Installation and assemble took 2.5 hours. Just too many parts and difficult areas to assemble. You'll understand if you attempt. Nice looking fan and excellent motor / remote / quite / solid...that is why I gave it 5 stars. Let's hope it lasts.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Fanman poor design
since you can only control the fan with the remote, it is fairly unworkable.
does not work on a switch and with the delay in the light, very hard for anyone to use if not familiar with the remote.
took it down and tossed it, purchased one 1/2 the price that could be controlled by the switch, much better. Whomever thought this design was a good idea was wrong.
Do not buy this fan under any circumstances, unless you want to get up and down to make the fan and light to work with the remote, terrible.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HokieGirl Buyer beware
I can only agree with all of the other reviews out there. You spend the extra money on a nice looking fan thinking it is of higher quality and that it will last. After 6 years our fan has completely stopped working. Casablanca puts a chip in their switches that communicates with a board on the fan's motor. When the switch or the board fails, which seems to be inevitable with these fans, your only option is to spend $120+ for new parts. Casablanca is aware that these parts are shoddy. They have 'updated' the intellitouch controller and the board twice since we bought the fan. They refuse to extend the (1) year warranty in light of this knowledge however. Now we will have to replace 3 parts if we want to continue using our $500 fan. Read the other reviews and avoid Casablanca!
