Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rick68 Easy installation
This was a replacement of a ceiling fan that was nearly 30 years old and still worked very well. The pull cord mechanism had broken and, because of its age, couldn't be replaced. So, the new fan needed to be as good and have a similar look and feel. While the blade holders aren't as solid or robust as the old one, and the washers used to cushion the blade and holder together are just paper, it is very quiet and serves our purposes well. Only time will tell if I'll get the 28 and a half years of great use with this one as I did the original. Either way the price was great, less than a third of what I paid all those years ago.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dissapointed68 Noisy, easy to break fan.
After I installed this fan, I screwed light bulbs into it. The candelabra sockets split in two! This was due to a cheap 2-piece design. I called Today's Design House Customer Service, and they apologized and sent a new fan with a good light kit.
About a month later, it started to hum loudly. I installed the replacement motor, and it hummed too. I tried adding Neoprene washers, rotating blades, new wall switches, re-tightening screws, etc. Customer Service told me that since they replaced it once, they would not help me.
Awful product that I am returning!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JoeJoe Some modification required
I have done this before but I looked over instructions anyway and they are pretty comprehensive.
The quality of the parts for price is good to excellent. One of the Balls on the pull chains was broken. I had a replacement. This may have happened during shipping or this was a reboxed return? The outside of the box was a bit banged up and appeared to have been retaped.
I exchanged the mounting screws with the 1/4 inch lags from the fan this replaced.
I had to resize the slots to accept the 1/4 lags.
I had to restrip the wires for proper exposure.
The installation is pretty straight forward but the cover or canopy did not fit the bracket easily so I had to modify the bracket.
In operation it's great.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by rman88 Nice looking fan, but some issues
We put in our first Millbridge 52 inch hugger fan, and noted that the motor was fairly quiet on high setting. One of the screws to the light wire housing does not work right (screw hole milled incorrectly?), but did not impede completing installation.
My main issue was when we ordered two additional units (same model/color), and noticed that the fan motors were too loud. We returned these items. Though we do not know for sure, it seems that these two fans had already been purchased and returned before. We then decided to go with another fan (Hunter Oakhurst), which is quieter, even compared to our first Millbridge fan which works OK.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Flemingbw1 Nice product
Design could be improved to make it a little more secure to the ceiling pretty quite while running just a low hum. All in all a really nice product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by prettyd1 The perfect color for my living room!
The performance is wonderful. I control the speed. I love that I also purchased the Westinghouse Chrome and Black Ceramic Pull Chain. The perfect match.

The intent was to replace a nearly identical ceiling fan with this model, however the blade arms have holes drilled all the way through, so screws would protrude and show through. And blade mounting screws were mill finish, instead of white finish to match blade arms attached to motor.
VERY DISAPPOINTED. Especially since direct contact with Design House in Milwaukee for parts to make it right accomplished nothing. Only option is to return to Home Depot, reorder online, hope for expedited shipping, but as the customer service rep stated, "there's no guarantee" the next one will be right.
